Luxury group accommodation for 14, with a private INDOOR POOL, GAMES AREA and PLAY EQUIPMENT. Close to the Quantock Hills in Somerset. 1 toddler bed (4yrs and under) and 2 cots at no extra charge.

Whether it’s a week long holiday or a short weekend away, Cockercombe is the perfect self-catering accommodation for large group holidays in Somerset – and it’s dog friendly to boot!

The main entrance takes you into the big open plan living space, flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling doors that can be pushed wide open on warm days. The style is modern throughout, finished in relaxing neutral tones with splashes of colour and homely touches; to one end of the living space sofas and chairs invite you to put your feet up and unwind, cushions to keep you comfy, throws to keep you snug. Get together and watch the latest big match or a movie, light the wood-burner on chillier days.

At the other end is the well-equipped kitchen; what’s good is that because it’s all open plan it makes it all so sociable, nobody is shut in the kitchen getting hot and flustered doing all the cooking. Mind you, there’s always the option to book one of our recommended caterers; lots of people do that, especially if they’re celebrating a special occasion. Pile the long dining table with food and drink, sit down and tuck in. Cheers!

Bedrooms 1 to 3 are on the ground floor; Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have en suite shower rooms whilst Bedroom 3 has its own wet room. Bedrooms 4 to 6 are upstairs and all have en suite bathrooms with a bath and hand held shower. All beds at Cockercombe are zip and link, which means you choose if you want them arranged as superkings or twins; note that Bedroom 4 is best for families as it sleeps 4 in either two superking beds, a superking and two singles, or in four singles. The spacious landing doubles up as a games area with a pool table, so no doubt you’ll find the youngsters hanging out here a lot!

Opposite the main living space is the indoor pool, with huge doors that open onto the patio; you see, Cockercombe has been designed so that you can all be together enjoying every minute of your holiday. Do a few lengths of the pool whilst the barbecue warms up, have a game of outdoor table tennis, go and mind the littl’uns on the play equipment and trampoline. Smiles all round, we reckon!
