Whether it's a holiday with family or friends, a refined hen weekend or a self-catering corporate break, Cockercombe makes a great place to stay. This timber-clad lodge with its own private indoor pool is spacious, light and airy, and with well co-ordinated modern styling, has a noticeably calm feel.

Step inside the front door to a lobby and off to the left is the enormous open plan living space; tucked away at one end is the kitchen, equipped with all you need to cater for your large group holiday - or if you're here for a special occasion caterers will have no problem creating a celebration feast for you. Just beyond the kitchen is the staircase and then a big dining table to seat 14; at the far end of the room with ample comfy seating there's a lounge area, with a user-friendly wood-burner and a big TV. Come back after a walk in the Quantock Hills, light the fire and settle down to watch your favourite movie together, all snug and warm. The beauty of this large open plan space is that there's room for all of you to gather - it's a big, sociable room where you can dine and chat, and play games, making for very special memories of your large group holiday in Somerset.

To the right of the lobby are Bedroom 1-3, all with a TV and ensuite facilities; Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have their own shower room, Bedroom 3 has an access friendly wet room that has hand rails and a low level basin and WC - note that the ground floor at Cockercombe is level throughout. Back in the huge living space, the stairs rise to a landing that takes you to Bedrooms 4-6; first left is the games area with table football, continue on and bear right to Bedroom 4 a large room that sleeps 4 and has its own ensuite bathroom with a bath and handheld shower. The beds can be configured however you want them - as two super kings, a super king and two singles, or as four singles, so it makes a brilliant room for a family or for older children who want to share dormitory style.

Along the landing, next to Bedroom 4 is Bedroom 5 which sleeps 2 and has an ensuite bathroom, again with a handheld shower above the bath. To the right of the landing is Bedroom 6 - another one an en suite bathroom with a bath and handheld shower. All the beds at Cockercombe are zip and link so they can be arranged as super kings or singles.

Huge floor to ceiling doors open onto the patio from the main living space; on warmer days throw them open and let outdoors and indoors meet. Play table tennis outside, fire up the barbecue, get the steaks sizzling and dine alfresco. Just across the patio from the living space is the private indoor pool with room around two sides for loungers, and full height doors you can push open to bring the sunshine in. You'll have many happy hours larking about in the pool together and it's all yours for the whole of your stay - just think, an early morning swim, a late night dip before you turn in for a restful night's sleep…

If you've got younger children in your group they'll be delighted with the play area where there's a climbing wall with swings, a climbing fort and slide, and a trampoline; stay and supervise, listen to the shrieks of happiness. What's great about Cockercombe is that there's something for all ages so it's a great choice for two or three families getting together for a holiday, for a multi-generational stay and for significant celebrations like those big birthdays and special anniversaries. The indoor pool and the games area mean you don't need to worry about what time of year it is or what the weather is up to because rain or shine, there's something to keep you entertained and smiling.
