Cockercombe was quite literally, made for large group holidays, big happy and sociable. This timber-clad lodge sleeps 14 guests in 6 en suite bedrooms, has a huge open plan kitchen/diner/living room and a fabulous indoor pool. Feel yourself start to unwind the minute you step into that commodious living space; at one end is the kitchen, all equipped for slicing and dicing and cooking up all manner of culinary masterpieces, but if that’s not your thing, fear not! Just call in one of our very efficient professional caterers - a great idea if you’re celebrating something special. At the other end of the room, chairs and sofas invite you to put your feet up and watch TV or cosy up by the wood-burner after a good hike in the nearby Quantock Hills.
There are also three bedrooms on the ground floor; Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have an en suite shower room, and Bedroom 3 has its own wet room. What’s great is that all the beds at Cockercombe are zip and link, which means they can be arranged as superkings or twins, you decide how you want them, let us know and we’ll do the rest.
Upstairs on the landing there’s table football and a sofa; off to the right are Bedrooms 4 and 5, both with en suite bathrooms with handheld showers. Bedroom 4 is a good family room or use it as a dormitory for older children – they’ll love it! It sleeps 4, with beds arranged as either two superkings, a superking and two singles, or as four singles. To the left of the landing is Bedroom 6, which also has its own en suite bathroom.
And the pool! It’s all yours 24/7, it’s an even 1.2m deep, there’s planet of room for loungers to the side and there are big doors you can open wide to bring in the sunshine. Fun, fun, fun, whatever the time of year, whatever the weather is up to. Mind you, if it’s sunny, you ought to make the most of it; get together on the patio for a lipsmacking barbecue; whilst you’re waiting go and watch the young ‘uns in the play area, or have a game of table tennis outdoors.
