Tucked away in the folds of the Blackdown Hills in Somerset, Otterhead House is a big country cottage with a hot tub and sauna, and snooze space for 10, plus 4 more in pull out single beds at no extra charge*. It makes the perfect rural retreat for the quiet enjoyment of family holidays, celebrations and self catering corporate breaks, and what's more, this house has the accolade of Best Renovation winner in the Daily Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovation Awards 2020.

Downstairs there’s a big kitchen/dining room, a cosy sitting room with a huge fireplace and a wood-burning stove, a utility room and a bedroom that sleeps 3. Upstairs are 4 more bedrooms and an awesome family bathroom. You’ll notice the attention to detail and the rustic character – those colossal oak timbers, wonky walls and cool furnishings; it’s a very unique place for your large group stay in the country.

You might just want to stay put, lapping up the bird song, the stream chuckling through the garden, and those gorgeous views, but if you’d like to go out and see what’s around you won’t be disappointed. Families will find plenty to do – Wildwood Escot, Ferne Animal Sanctuary, Axe Valley Wildlife Park and the beaches of the Jurassic Coast are all within easy reach, or if you go to Taunton you can go bowling or play on the high ropes at Vivary Adventure Centre.

Catch a race day at Taunton Racecourse or a match at Somerset County Cricket Club; there’s go-karting at Mansell Raceway, off-roading at Quad World, and countless places to visit – Barrington Court, Forde Abbey, Hestercombe House and Gardens, Sheppy’s Cider, Bicton Park, and loads more. Take walks in the peaceful countryside, right from the doorstep. Otterhead Lakes are just across the road; have a picnic there, pootle up to the Holman Clavel for lunch or down the road to The Candlelight Inn at Bishopswood. Do as much or as little as you want when you come for a large group holiday at Otterhead House; it’s a world away from the hectic pace of the city, somewhere to completely unwind. Book today!
