Sleeping 18 guests in 9 en suite rooms, Holemoor Stables is the perfect large group accommodation. It's certainly commodious, with a fabulous indoor heated pool, a games room, and plenty of outdoor space; in a private and tranquil location, it's surrounded by the picturesque countryside of South Somerset. You won't be short of things to see and do; right from the doorstep you'll find footpaths and bridleways to explore, and narrow lanes that lead to pretty villages where you can stop and sample traditional cider or enjoy a laid back lunch in a quaint country pub. A little further afield lies the beautiful Jurassic Coast where you can go fossil hunting or rockpooling at Charmouth or Lyme Regis. While away a morning browsing one of the little market towns - Ilminster, ChardCrewkerne or Langport or go to the county town of Taunton where you'll find a mix of big name and independent shops, plenty of places to eat, a fascinating museum, and attractive public gardens. If you're a serious shopaholic then Clark's Village should suit you!

And there are heaps of opportunities for a good day out! Holemoor Stables is within easy reach of the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, with a unique display of old and modern aircraft and regular airshows; for car enthusiasts, Haynes Motor Museum is also nearby and has an incredible collection of cars through the ages. Visit the historic properties of Forde Abbey, Barrington Court Montacute House, or Stourhead House & Gardens; Bath and Bristol are only about an hour or so away, and in the other direction Exeter is easily reached. Venture out to the watery landscape of the Somerset Levels, visit colourful Glastonbury and climb the Tor, have a wander round Wells and see the cathedral, the Bishop's Palace and the cobbled Vicar's Close. Take a picnic to nearby Castle Neroche or Ham Hill Country Park and admire the panoramic views of the Somerset countryside. Relaxation is a must when you're staying at Holemoor Stables!

If you want to go out to eat you'll find several very good pubs and restaurants nearby; Bath House Hotel in Chard is popular, as is the George Inn at DonyattThe Bell at Broadway, and the Cotley Inn at Wambrook. If it's summertime and you've got young 'uns on board The Windwhistle Inn is a good choice as there's a big beer garden there with outdoor games. There are farm shops nearby where you stock up on local goodies, and if you go to Coombe Farm Organic as well as the shop and cafe they do farm tours and clay pigeon shooting tuition.

The owners of Holemoor Stables still live on the estate, so can help with anything you need. They used to run a racing stable from this complex, and they turned out a Welsh Grand National winner here once, Kendal Cavalier. Now they're very successful at turning out happy holidaymakers who come back year after year - and it's easy to see why; Holemoor Stables has all you need for an extra special large group stay.
