Crowcombe and Thorncombe

These two luxury holiday lodges in Somerset sleep 26 people when booked together and they come with the luxury of 2 INDOOR HEATED POOLS for exclusive use. 2 toddler beds (4yrs and under) and 4 cots at no extra charge.

Thorncombe is a  luxury timber clad lodge that sleeps 12 guests in 5 en suite bedrooms; expect plenty of space, a private indoor pool, pool table and play equipment, which make it perfect for all kinds of large group holidays, family celebrations, hen weekends and corporate stays.

Step into the huge living/dining room, filled with natural daylight from the floor to ceiling windows; to one end are inviting sofas, a big flat screen TV and a user-friendly wood-burner – imagine coming back from a country walk and snuggling round with mugs of hot chocolate and a plate piled high with buttery toast…. There’s a chunky dining table for those happy mealtimes and celebration feasts, and then at the other end of the room is the games area with a pool table.

Beyond this is the well-equipped kitchen and utility room, and Bedrooms 1 and 2; Bedroom 1 has an en suite bathroom and Bedroom 2 has its own shower room. Upstairs there’s a mezzanine landing and to the right are Bedrooms 3 and 4, to the left is Bedroom 5. Bedroom 3 makes a great family room or it works as a dormitory for older children as it can sleep 4 people, and it has an en suite bathroom. Bedrooms 4 and 5 also have en suite bathrooms, and what’s good about all the bedrooms at Thorncombe is that because the beds are zip and link, you can have them arranged as superkings or twins. All rooms have a flatscreen TV and all baths have handheld showers.

The indoor heated pool is right opposite the main living space and what’s brilliant is that you can throw open the huge doors to make it all feel part of the outdoors when the weather is good. You should all make the most of it and dine outdoors, there’s plenty of room on the large patio, and the little ones will be happy playing on the slide and trampoline. That’s the thing with Thorncombe, there’s something for everyone, young and old, that’s why it’s so perfect for large group family holidays.
