This gorgeous holiday house in Somerset is the bees knees for all manner of large group stays – big family holidays, happy reunions, celebrations, hen weekends and corporate breaks for team building and hospitality. What’s more, it’s dog friendly! And it has a hot tub! And a games room! And a cinema room! And it’s out in the country where it’s nice and peaceful and the views are amazing! How many boxes does that tick?
Take a closer look at Dustings and you’ll see that it’s incredibly bright and airy and despite having lots of space, it’s still homely and welcoming. That’s because every step of the way from its conversion from an old stable block to luxurious large group self catering holiday accommodation, things have been carefully thought out. 6 bedrooms sleep 16 people and there’s heaps of room for entertaining and socialising; you can all dine together in the huge kitchen/diner or out in the courtyard when the sun is shining. You can whip up a bit of in-house competition in the games room, have a movie night, and of course, spend time just chillin’ in the hot tub.
Make the most of the country air by getting out and exploring the countryside; you can walk for miles and miles through the owner’s private farmland where you won’t see a soul, and just a short stroll from the house is a pond where you can have picnics and feed the ducks. Discover the wild beauty of the Quantock Hills, look out for wild ponies and red deer feeding. Climb to the top of Cothelstone Hills or Wills Neck; the views are staggering from both and afterwards you can find a welcoming country pub for refreshments or go to the Pines Café where the bluebell woods up behind are a picture in springtime.
Only a few miles from Dustings is Bishops Lydeard where you can visit the flour mill and museum, go to the vintage style Daisy Cottage Tea Rooms, the family owned Lethbridge Arms, or Podshavers Barn, a very good restaurant. Go to the station and catch a steam train to the coast with the West Somerset Railway; spend the day on the beach at Minehead or Blue Anchor, or get off at Dunster and see the medieval castle (NT) that stands high above the village streets. Spend a day in Taunton, Somerset’s county town; catch a cricket match, or a race day at Taunton Racecourse, browse the shops, visit the Museum of Somerset, go to Vivary park for golf, mini golf and a high ropes activity centre. On the outskirts of town there’s a bowling alley, multiplex cinema and several places to eat.
The thing is with Dustings is that there really is something for everyone – for all ages and all interests. The Taunton Cycle Trail runs more or less right past the door, there are several very good game shoots around these parts, historic houses, cider mills, family attractions, fishing, golf and farmers markets all within just a few miles. What’s not to like, as they say? Check availability, book today and look forward to a happy large group stay at Dustings.
