12 Bedrooms, 10 Bathrooms, Sleeps 24
Culmhead, Somerset, England
Built in the late 1800's for a gentleman JP, Widcombe Grange is an impressive stone built country house set in 22 acres of landscaped woodland on the Blackdown hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty. This large house to rent is available for big parties, country house weddings, holidays and more.

The Grounds
In front of the house is a natural pond with its own island gazebo and to the west of the property is woodland featuring many rare and specimen trees. You will also find a two acre spring fed fishing lake which borders onto a newly planted cider apple orchard. The grounds of this big house are spectacular and lend themselves to a range of country pursuits (archery, fishing, clay shooting to name a few) so your group can stay and play without ever having to leave site!
In the walled garden is the open air swimming pool - a...

Widcombe Grange is perfect for large gatherings. It has the most comfortable beds, the dining room is easily big enough for 24 to be seated, the lounges are again large enough for all and the gardens are beautiful. The hot tub was well used by our party.

The house was even better than I had hoped for. Whilst being large enough to accommodate my friends who came to celebrate my Birthday it had a very cosy and intimate vibe. It felt very much like our home for the 3 days we stayed. Everybody soon adjusted to just relaxing, eating far too much or walks to the local...

About the neighbourhood
Many of our weekend groups like to have an activity arranged for them. Perhaps clay shooting or archery, or something more relaxing like a massage, some of which can take place at the house. We can also arrange catering, so that you can chill. This can be anything from a delivered supper to a celebration dinner with waitress service and drinks served on the lawn, weather permitting.<BR><BR>For those guests wanting to go further afield or who might be here on holiday, we are in a wonderful part of Somerset for walking, pub lunches, visits to the coast and boat trips (Lyme Regis is one of our favourites), riding and fishing to name but a few. Dunkeswell airfield offers taster flights, if you fancy an aerial view, or what about a balloon ride. <BR><BR>For families... more
