Holemoor Stables is set on a private estate off the beaten track in the beautiful South Somerset countryside. The layout is reminiscent of a Roman villa, with all accommodation on the ground floor, close together and set around a central grassy courtyard. The main living space and 6 of the en suite bedrooms are in a big L-shaped building, the other 3 bedrooms and a small living area are in an adjacent annexe, and the games room and swimming pool are housed separately again. Interiors are modern throughout, with Travertine flooring, solid oak doors and furniture, and well co-ordinated furnishings. Light pours in through full height windows giving a bright, fresh feel.
In the main building the living space is open plan with a Shaker style kitchen to one end, a big chunky dining table in the middle, and plenty of sofas and a widescreen TV at the other end; the views stretch for miles and miles over glorious countryside. Either side of the living space are 3 roomy en suite bedrooms, all with wardrobes, black out blinds and TVs. 4 of the en suites are wet rooms and the other 2 have walk in showers.
The annexe is self-contained, making it ideal for a family with young children or for older relatives who like to have their own space; there’s soft seating, a small kitchen, and 2 of the bedrooms have en suite wet rooms whilst the other has a bath. What’s good about all the bedrooms at Holemoor Stables is that the beds are zip and link so you can have them arranged as superkings or twins, it’s up to you.
Across the courtyard, is the games room and pool hall, so go and have fun, play pool, table tennis or table football, have a splash about and enjoy it all, after all you’re on holiday, it’s what it’s all about. If you’re here in the summer and the weather is good you’ll find that the courtyard is quite a suntrap so you can spend time out there soaking up the rays whilst you keep an eye on the children playing. Just the other side of the main living space there’s a large patio with a barbecue and garden furniture, leading on to lawns with play equipment for the youngsters, and overlooking a fenced pond with the open countryside beyond; the perfect place to watch the sun go down.
