Croftview stands on a hillside at the end of a long drive on a 1,200 acre estate, with views of glorious Somerset countryside that seems to roll on and on forever. This really is a house for all seasons with a fabulous spa hall that has a heated swimming pool, sunken hot tub, sauna, changing rooms and a shower.
The whole feel is light and airy, welcoming and contemporary; you’ll notice that as soon as you step into the wide hallway. Straight ahead is the loo, off to the left is the games room with a pool table and air hockey, and access to the spa hall.
To the right of the hall is the large open plan living space with a long handcrafted dining table, a very well equipped kitchen, and round the corner, the lounge area where you’ll find plenty of room to sit comfy and put your feet up. On colder days come back to the warmth of the wood-burner, gather round with a tray of hot buttery toast and get cosy. Also on the ground floor is another hallway leading to a utility room with laundry facilities, and Bedroom 1, which is fully accessible and has an en suite wet room.
Croftview has two staircases; the first is in the main hall and takes you to Bedrooms 2-9. Bedroom 7 has an en suite bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, the rest have en suite shower rooms. What’s great is that all the beds are zip and link so you can have them arranged how you wish – superkings or twins. Bedroom 6 has room for an optional extra bed (charged extra).
On the second floor, approached via the second staircase, are Bedrooms 10 and 11, both with en suite bathrooms that have free standing baths as well as walk-in showers. Bedrooms 12 and 13 are reached via the first staircase; these rooms also have the luxury of en suite bathrooms with free standing baths and walk-in showers. There’s a very handy kitchenette at the top of each staircase on the top floor, with a fridge and a dishwasher. Note that Bedroom 10 can accommodate two additional guests on a Hypnos sofa bed, Bedroom 11 has room for an extra single bed, and Bedroom 12 can sleep up to 3 more people on a single bed and a double sofa bed. Whilst there are more than 4 options for extra beds it is important to remember that you can only use 4 of them and that an extra charge per person will be applied to your booking.
The secure gated gardens are mostly at the back of the house, making the most of those far reaching views. There are lawns for the young ‘uns to run about on, play equipment, outdoor table tennis, and a big terrace with garden furniture and a gas barbecue. Follow the path across the garden and you'll find Charlotte's Web, a rustic hut built into the hillside; it has seating for up to 30 people, and in the middle a firepit. It's a great place to sit and look out over the fields, or to spend an evening relaxing together.
