Feel your worries slip from your shoulders the minute you step into the huge open plan living space at Ramscombe; flooded with light from floor to ceiling doors that you can open wide on warmer days, this is a very sociable space where you can cook and mingle together. To one end there’s a well-equipped kitchen, but if cooking for a big group doesn’t fill you with enthusiasm you can always order frozen meals from COOK, or hire one of our tried and tested caterers to come and cook for you – something people often do for special occasions, if they’re here celebrating a big birthday or an anniversary. Sit around the chunky dining table, raise a glass and tuck in, then take your ease on the inviting sofas and chairs at the other end of the room.
Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor; two have en suite shower rooms and one has an en suite bathroom with an overhead shower. The other three bedrooms are upstairs off the landing where there’s a football table and sofa; these bedrooms all have good sized en suite shower rooms and like the rest of the house, are finished in soothing neutral tones, with a noticeable sense of calm about them. Bedroom 4 is great for families or for a few friends sharing, dormitory style, as it sleeps 4 people. All beds at Ramscombe are zip and ink so can be arranged however you want them – as superkings or twins. Select your options after you’ve made your booking and leave it to us.
The icing on the cake for these lodges is that each one has a private indoor pool, with room at the sides for loungers, and full height doors that can be opened wide. The pool is a constant 1.2m deep so don’t worry if you’re not the best swimmer, just get in, splash about and enjoy yourself. Make the most of the sunshine and gather together on the patio for a big barbecue; whilst your steaks are sizzling you can have a game of boule, or mind the little ones happily playing on the climbing frame or bouncing on the trampoline.
Book Ramscombe and Cockercombe together for a supersize holiday for up to 28 people and you’ll have 12 bedrooms, 2 private indoor pools and plenty of outdoor space; room to play, room to enjoy, and the opportunity to make some very special memories.
