This stylish contemporary house is one of a small cluster of luxurious holiday homes on a 200-acre country estate which comes complete with a sumptuous spa, outdoor tennis court and woodland trails, all amid the impressive scenery of Somerset's scenic Mendip hills.
Springfields is a beautiful four bedroomed house which has been thoughtfully furnished with both young children and adults in mind. The house is well stocked with toys, books and games and the open plan living area is cleverly divided into two 'zones' so kiddies DVDs can be watched in one area, whilst grown ups chat in another.
Parents will appreciate the long list of handy nursery gear provided (see Fast Facts section), which ensures there's no stressful car packing and unpacking, whilst the country walks, bike trails, fishing lake and pre-bookable treatments in the spa, ensure there's every opportunity for relaxation. There's even a private chef available for a special night in and plenty of family-friendly gastro pubs within a short drive for nights out.
For days out, Springfields’ central location is hard to beat with attractions such as Longleat Safari park, Bath, Wells, Glastonbury and Stone Henge all within a short drive, as well as the North Devon and Somerset coast. It may well take a will of iron not to take a credit card on a little trip to the bargain-filled Mulberry factory shop, which is just a few minutes drive away and has a handy café on site to occupy non-fashionistas in the family!
Springfields sleeps 10+cots in 4 ensuite bedrooms comprising 2 doubles and two twins, one of which has an additional two full-sized, pull-out single beds. The main living area is open plan with lovely rural view from floor to ceiling windows and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining room also enjoys great views thanks to its part-glazed orangery design. The stylish kitchen comes equipped with all mod cons including a dishwasher and microwave. Outside, there's an enclosed private garden with lawn area and patio with dining furniture and BBQ.
The 200-acre Wellesley Park estate has its own spa with heated indoor pool, sauna, steam room, small gym and treatment rooms (book in advance). There is a tennis court onsite and well managed footpaths leading to the scenic cathedral city of Wells, which is approx. 1.5 miles away.
Longleat Safari Park with its Postman Pat village is just 40mins by car, whilst the attractions of the North Devon or Somerset coast are also under an hour away. Gorgeous Georgian Bath is only 20 miles away, to stroll around the world famous Crescent and visit the Roman Baths or simply indulge is serious retail therapy with all the designer boutiques and high street stores, taking a break in countless cafes, pubs and restaurants. Wookey Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge are just a couple of other major family attractions within easy reach of Wellesley Park.
