On a small private site in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Quantock Hills, Thorncombe sleeps 12 people in 5 ensuite bedrooms. 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 happy sociable times together. Modern and spacious throughout, Thorncombe is just the ticket for any large group holiday or shortbreak and if there's more fo you, don;t worry because you can book this lodge with another on the same site (see Crowcombe and Thorncombe).
Virtually on the doorstep are the rugged and beautiful Quantock Hills, with plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling, and even the chance to see the sights on horseback with Quantock Trekking. Get out there 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 a very short drive away are the Farmers Arms at Combe Florey, the Rising Sun at West Bagboough and the Blue Ball Inn at Triscombe - all are good and the welcome is warm. 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 on the beach, roll up your trousers and have a paddle, just like a good old fashioned day out at the seaside! In about an hour you can be on the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast where you can go fossil hunting at Charmouth, visit Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and the Marine Aquarium at Lyme Regis, or see Beer Quarry Caves and ride on the trains at Pecorama at Beer.
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 stores 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?
