Crowcombe is a spacious and well-equipped holiday lodge that’s perfect for large group stays for up to 14 people, whether it’s family, friends or colleagues. The style is modern throughout, with Travertine flooring on the ground floor and carpet upstairs. Furnishings are well co-ordinated with a few country and vintage style pieces that give a distinct homely feel. Step into the commodious living/entertaining space, flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows; when the sun is beating down, open them wide, let the fresh air in, wander out onto the patio. To one end of this vast space is the soft seating area, in the middle is a big chunky dining table where you can gather to raise a glass and tuck into a scrumptious celebratory feast; at the other end is the sleek and modern kitchen.
Bedrooms 1-3 are on the ground floor too; 1 and 2 both have an en suite shower room, whilst Bedroom 3 has its own bathroom with an overhead shower. All bedrooms are finished in soothing neutral tones with the aim being a calm space for a restful night’s sleep.
Upstairs there’s a games area on the landing where you can play pool. Off to the right are Bedrooms 4 and 5, both with en suite shower rooms. Bedroom 4 is perfect or families, or for a kind of dormitory for older children as it sleeps 4. Like all the beds at Crowcombe, the beds in this room are zip and link so you can have them arranged as two superkings, a superking and two singles, or as four singles. Select your bed options when you’ve made your booking and leave the rest to us. Off to the left of the landing is Bedroom 6, which also has an en suite shower room.
Right opposite the main living space is the indoor pool, with room to laze around on loungers and again, huge doors that you can have wide open in better weather. The big patio allows plenty of opportunity for alfresco dining and from Easter to October you can use the gas barbecue; whilst your steaks are sizzling you can keep an eye on the littl’uns bouncing about on the trampoline or have a splash in the pool with them. Happy days!
