Timberscombe, Exmoor National Park, England
For more than 20 years the combination of the Great House and Exmoor has been the perfect house and perfect location for your house party.

The Great House is the ideal country house rental getaway, a people friendly house (children and adults), located in the beautiful South West on the Somerset/Devon borders and in the Exmoor National Park.

The Great House itself is a large, comfortable, cheerful and atmospheric house with loads of character and in a wonderful location on the edge of the village which makes it the perfect place to party with friends and family. The Great House is only 150 yards from the village centre with its church , post office and PUB!!

Beautiful house in a lovely location. There were 22 of us and we ranged in ages from 7-88 and there was plenty of room to be able to be quiet or to be all together. Terry, the owner, could not have been more helpful in answering questions and providing information about the house and things to do in the area. Definitely good value-for-money too!

How to get there
We are about 45 minutes off the M5 at Bridgwater and about the same from the M5 at Taunton. If you head along the A39 towards Minehead, about 2 miles before Minehead you come to some traffic lights (a rare occurrence down here). The road is signposted the A396 to Tiverton. Here you turn left through Dunster and onto Timberscombe (about 2 miles). At Timberscombe turn left off the new bypass into the village, and you will see “The Lion” ahead of you, down the left side of the “The Lion” there is a small road, Great House street, and the “Great House” (TA24 7TQ if using a sat nav) is about 150 yards along on the left.

If you wish to travel by rail, the nearest main line station is Taunton (direct line from Paddington), where there is bus connection to Minehead, from where a taxi can be pick...
