“Great house for a large party of family and friends”
Reviewed 6 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We all enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Widcombe Grange. A party of eighteen family and friends with three dogs. Loads of space, lovely grounds, huge table for everyone to get together, well equipped kitchen and very importantly, extremely clean throughout. Fun hot tub, party / games room and boats on the lake too!
Wet weather did not matter at all with cosy fireplaces and wonderfully warm eco heating system.
Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for booking Widcombe Grange. I'm very pleased you had a great weekend party and the new hot tub was a hit with you! February can be a great time to go away - being outside if the weather is good and if it's poor, an excellent excuse to be beside the fire with a glass of wine, or having fun in the games room!
I really appreciate you leaving a review, best wishes
Anthony

“Wonderful weekend at Widcombe”
Reviewed 19 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We hired Widcombe for my husbands 50th birthday celebrations in early January.
It is a perfect party house and all our guests felt very comfortable. It is well equipped and once the gates were shut we really felt we'd got away from the outside world!
The hot tub and games room were both well used as a little cold in January to do much exploring.
Many thanks to Anthony and the team, we hope to return one day!

“Great stay!”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We rented the house for a corporate event and it was the perfect location. They were very helpful in arranging activities for the group that came to the house eliminating the need to travel anywhere. The house was clean and well organized. The process was very smooth from start to finish. We would be interested in staying in the house again.

“Boys weekend away!”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Widcombe Grange was the weekend destination for my stag do. Quite possibly the best weekend of my life!!

An eeeeenormous house with annex (which is probably bigger than most people's house) is set in the most beautiful Somerset grounds and wider rolling hills.

The venue is kept to a very high standard and easily catered for 23guys. An out door heated pool and massive lawn were plenty of space to keep us amused. Garden cricket anyone??

The best part of the weekend was getting 22 of my family and friends around 1 dining table for dinner! Amazing!

Just trying to work out a reason to hire the place again!

Management team were extremely helpful and polite.

“Fantastic big house venue”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Brilliant country house venue with great facilities and fantastic catering on offer - the Thai meal we had was exceptional!
The archery session is thoroughly recommended.
Would throughly recommend for any special event with family and friends - a very special and memorable visit was enjoyed by all 24 weekend guests, and our birthday party on Saturday night was in a perfect spot in the grounds.
We would definitely do it all again!
