Nestled in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Quantock Hills, Thorncombe sleeps 12 people in 5 ensuite bedrooms, with room for two more guests at an extra charge. This luxury large group holiday home is one of five timber-clad holiday lodges, each self-contained, with their own private pool and garden area. Remarkably light and airy, guests will delight in the open plan living/dining area that's great for socialising and entertaining. Modern and spacious throughout, Thorncombe is just the ticket for any large group holiday.
Right on the doorstep are the ruggedly beautiful Quantock Hills, with plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, and even horseriding with Quantock Trekking - one of the best ways to see the hills. Get out and explore, take a picnic to Cothelstone Hill or Wills Neck and enjoy the views, or find a cosy country inn to stop off at for a relaxing pint or a lazy pub lunch; just up the road are the Farmers Arms at Combe Florey or the Rising Sun at West Bagboough. Take a steam train to the coast with the West Somerset Railway, alight at Watchet, Blue Anchor or Minehead, make sandcastles, have fish and chips ont he beach, roll up your trousers and have a paddle. In about an hour you can be on the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast where you should have a mooch around Lyme Regis, play crazy golf, go mackerel fishing, or fossil hunting.
If you want to hit the surf for the day, head down to Croyde or Ilfracombe on the North Devon Coast. Outdoorsy types will love Exmoor National Park with its dramatic plunging cliffs and wooded green valleys; go and see the ancient clapper bridge at Tarr Steps, stroll along the river at Watersmeet, or take in the Valley of Rocks where Exmoor ponies and wild goats feed. If you want shops go to Taunton where you'll find a range of high street and independent shops and plenty of places to eat, but allow time to amble around Vivary Park and maybe a play on the high ropes at Vivary Adventure Centre. Have a family day out to Tropiquaria Zoo, Exmoor Owl & Hawk Centre or Wookey Hole. Luxury accommodation, beautiful scenery, heaps to see and do .... what more could you want?
