Halse Water House

A big holiday cottage on the edge of a quiet Somerset village; snooze space for 12, big garden with a HOT TUB and outdoor dining pavilion. 1 cot at no extra charge.

Halse Water House is a picturesque thatched cottage on the edge of the sleepy village of Halse in Somerset. It’s peaceful and quiet and surrounded by beautiful open countryside, and to boot it’s got a big garden with a stream tinkling through it, a hot tub and an outdoor dining pavilion.

Walk into the hallway and to the right are the kitchen and the dining room; the kitchen is well equipped and typically country style, with quarry tiles on the floor, pretty units and a lovely old Rayburn – but don’t worry if that’s not your thing – there’s an electric oven and hob too. The dining room has a big square table to seat all 12 of you, so gather round and tuck into to a scrumptious celebration feast.

To the left there’s a shower room, and the lounge with a snug beyond.  It all exudes a notable sense of calm because although it's big, it's cosy; curl up on the sofas for a quiet chat or to watch a movie, you’ll feel so relaxed you might even drift off to sleep!

Upstairs are Bedrooms 1-5 and 2 bathrooms. Bedroom 1 has a king size bed and can link to Bedroom 2, a twin room, thus making it ideal for a family with young children. Bedrooms 3 and 4 have a double bed and Bedroom 5 is another twin room.

The ground floor annexe has an open plan kitchen/sitting room, a twin bedroom (Bedroom 6) and an en suite shower room. This is the solution if you have people in your group who like to have their own space, or for elderly grandparents who get tired out just watching the little ones and need to retreat for a lie down!

The garden is a delight; there’s a courtyard at the back of the house where you'll find the hot tub and the heated and covered dining pavilion, but what’s very special on a summers evening is to take a sundowner to the riverbank and sit and chat till it’s dark. 

Time to spend together, time to enjoy. Check availability at Halse Water House and book today.
