Frog Street is a Somerset longhouse that dates back to the 15th century so as you can imagine, there’s plenty of country character inside and out. Off the lane a short private road leads to the parking area in front of the house; go in through the porch to the dining room, with window seats both sides, and in the middle, a big table for you to gather together for scrumptious holiday feasts.
Off to the left is the kitchen, farmhouse style of course, a quiet spot to sit and drink your morning coffee and if you’re lucky, see deer feeding in the fields. To the right of the dining room is the sitting room, with enticing sofas, a wood-burner, and a TV. Beyond the Jacobean panelling is the games room with a pool table and table football, and from there a lobby leads to the covered veranda and to Bedroom 6, which has an en suite shower room, and room for another optional single bed.
Upstairs, at the end of the long landing is The Orchard Suite, where Bedrooms 1 and 2 interlink via a dressing room, and a shared bathroom with a free-standing bath and a corner shower. This suite is ideal for families as the two rooms together sleep 4, or 6 with the choice of two extra single beds in Bedroom 1. Note that although Frog Street has room for 3 extra beds we can only allow 2 per booking, and these are charged extra.
Along the landing is Bedroom 3, The Garden Room, with its own bathroom. Next to this is Bedroom 4 (Willow Room) with an en suite shower room.
From the downstairs lobby a second staircase takes you to Bedroom 5, the Snug Room; the en suite bathroom has a roll top bath and a separate shower. Apart from Bedroom 3, all bedrooms have zip and link beds that can be arranged as superking or twin beds – just let us know how you want them and leave it to us.
Outside there’s a patio with garden furniture and just beyond is the BBQ lodge, with its own kitchen. There’s a play area, and the jewel in the crown, a spa lodge with a 5m swim spa and changing area; out on the decking there’s a hot tub and more seating. All around you is fresh air and the quiet countryside; bliss.
