Ham Bottom offers luxury large group accommodation that's spacious, light and airy, finished to the highest standards and beautifully furnished. This self catering holiday lodge stands in two acres of private land with gorgeous views across a verdant Somerset valley, so you're surrounded by softly undulating hills and lush countryside. The perfect getaway for groups of up to 14 people looking for a relaxing holiday, short break or celebration; bring friends, family and colleagues and enjoy!
At Ham Bottom it feels like your own little world, so you might not want to go out anywhere. And why not, when there's everything you need? Plenty of living/entertaining space, sumptuous bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a games room, indoor swimming pool, and sauna. If the sun is shining you can all go out on to the patio and get the barbecue going whilst the young 'uns run about on the grass and play on the chunky climbing frame or have a bounce on the trampoline. Climb in the covered hot tub for a soak and if it gets chilly, head for the Scandinavian style BBQ lodge where you can all wrap up in reindeer rugs and get cosy beneath the twinkly lights.
If you fancy exploring the gorgeous Somerset countryside, you'll find plenty of ways to spend the days. There are walks right on your doorstep, along footpaths and around the lanes; possibly one of the nicest things to do is to stroll across the fields to The Globe Inn for lunch, or to the White Post Cafe for coffee in the garden. Wellington and Tiverton aren't far if you need bits and pieces or just fancy a browse; you can grab some more serious retail therapy in Taunton, within half an hour's drive. For a good day out head over to Exmoor and roam the wild and rugged heaths and deep wooded valleys; go to Watersmeet and Tarr Steps, stop for a drink by the river in Dulverton or find a cosy corner in a tea room for afternoon tea. Have a Quantock adventure - these beautiful hills are great for walking and are dotted with pretty villages with thatched cottages and rustic country inns. Climb up to the top of Holford Combe and come back down to The Plough for a pint, mooch around Nether Stowey and visit Coleridge Cottage, conquer the summit of Wills Neck, the highest point on the Quantocks, and admire the far reaching views, or explore the wild beaches at East Quantoxhead and St Audries Bay.
For bucket-and-spade fun head up to Weston-Super-Mare on the Somerset coast, or to Minehead; go to Kilve beach for fossil hunting, and over to Lyme Regis or Beer on the Jurassic coast for a mackerel fishing trip. If you like to ride the waves spend a day on the North Devon coast at Woolacombe or Croyde. Soak up some grandeur and history at Dunster Castle, Knightshayes, Montacute House, Barrington Court (all NT), or Forde Abbey; all have beautiful gardens as do Hestercombe House, or Cothay Manor just up the road. If the kids want some fun - well! What a choice! Chug through the countryside on a steam train along the West Somerset Railway and alight for a couple of hours at Watchet or Blue Anchor, take a day trip to Longleat, Wookey Hole, or Bristol Zoo, visit Crealy Adventure Park, Diggerland, Exmoor Zoo, Haynes Motor Museum or go to Wimbleball Lake for some family fun on the water. Loads to do, heaps to see! With a large group stay at Ham Bottom you can be sure of making some very special memories!
