Property code: 64472

This spacious former farmhouse is set in the peaceful Somerset Levels village of Henton close to the Mendip hills and only 4 miles from the historic cathedral city of Wells.

Escape to the wilds of Somerset for a memorable milestone celebration or family reunion. Set over three floors, this superbly restored five-bedroom farmhouse can sleep up to 12 guests and has bags of outdoor space for parties and ball games on the lawn. Bordering the property is a delightful stream, which you can use for fishing. Trips to Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge are loads of fun for all ages and both are within 10 miles of the property. As well as exploring the magnificent caves, you can brave the animatronic Dinosaur Valley at Wookey and team up for an escape room challenge at Cheddar.

Inside, traditional features such as exposed beams, stone walls and flagstone floors give the property character. It's eco-friendly too, with a geothermal heat pump serving the underfloor heating and hot water, so you're doing your bit for the planet with a stay here. The spacious kitchen/diner is fully-equipped to cater for large groups, with a double oven and five-ring hob. Enjoy lively dinner parties in the stylish dining hall before settling down in the cosy sitting room to watch Sky TV or play board games from the collection provided. When you want some quiet time, head to the garden room. Overlooking the terrace with views across the Somerset Levels, it's a lovely spot to curl up by the wood burner with a good book. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms. All are lovely, but the master king-size suite on the first floor is extra special as it has its own private sitting room and en-suite shower room. The twin rooms on the second floor are ideal for children or those fit enough to climb two flights of stairs. Outside, get everyone together on the large enclosed patio area for a sizzling summer BBQ in the sunshine. Take in the sweeping views across the Mendip Hills as you catch up with all the latest family news.

We had a lovely time. All rooms in the cottage were nice, and the shared areas were well kitted out for our stay with a large group. The grounds were amazing, with lots of wildlife to admire - loads of swifts, woodpeckers and even deer, and the neighbours cat Charlie was very friendly and a nice surprise! We would definitely consider staying again.

Very spacious rooms, excellent bathroom facilities, great view, good space outside, plenty of parking. For those over 6', beware the low beams in the kitchen.
