A stay at Walnut Arbour is like being in a world of your own, tucked away in the peace and quiet of the Somerset Levels, with a private spa to boot. There’s more than enough to keep everyone, young or old, entertained and relaxed.
So in you go, through the hall and into the sitting room; there are plenty of sofas and a big TV so perhaps one night you can all cosy up and watch a film, or you might spend a Saturday afternoon cheering on your favourite team in the latest big match. To the left is the dining room, leading round to the kitchen, all very sociable with room to sing and dance together and to sit around the table to tuck into a scrumptious celebration dinner.
Off the sitting room a hallway leads to Bedrooms 5 and 6 with a shared shower room between them. Bedroom 6 has room for an extra bed (charged) so it makes a good set up for a family. A small porch gives access to a walled garden with a lawn and play area. Bedrooms 1-4 are upstairs; 1 and 2 both have en suite shower rooms and 3 and 4 share a family bathroom. Bedroom 4 is another room that can sleep 3 people, with an extra bed available at an extra charge. Apart from Bedroom 1, all beds are zip and link so you can have them arranged as superkings or twins. The bedrooms all have a wonderful feeling of calm about them, and the vaulted painted ceilings give a very fresh New England feel. Add to that the tranquility and clean country air and you have the perfect recipe for a good night’s sleep.
The games room is accessed from the garden, just a few steps from the house; floor to ceiling windows on one side allow the natural light to flood in, there’s a pool table, table football, a big L-shaped sofa and a TV.
On from this is the spa hall; relax with a swim in the pool or a session in the steam room, and just outside is a ‘secret garden’ with loungers and a funky barrel sauna. At the front of the house there's a paved garden with a covered hot tub, outdoor furniture and barbecue; have a soak, enjoy the fresh country air and the tranquility.
