A fabulous Scandinavian-style lodge, a steaming hot tub, a sauna, and all in a setting in the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with views as far as the Bristol Channel. What a place for a family holiday or a special celebration. Coombe Lodge is exceptionally spacious with a lovely verandah at the front and a galleried landing overlooking the open plan living area, adding great character to an already exceptional property. Whether for a family holiday or for a group of friends escaping from the pressures of work, this is just the place. Easy to reach and yet just far enough off the beaten track for peace and tranquility, this working farmstead setting will suit everyone.
Coombe Lodge is on the edge of the delightful hamlet of Plainsfield with the Quantock Hills – waiting to be explored – rising above. The Quantocks are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways – and many guests bring their mountain bikes as this area is ideal for adventurous off-road exploring. The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers approximately 9,500 acres of woodland, open moorland and ancient drovers tracks. The views are to die for – from the top of the hills, on a clear day, you can see right across the Bristol Channel to the hills of south Wales in one direction and across the Vale of Taunton towards Exmoor National Park in the other. Whatever the time of year this unspoilt part of Somerset will send you home with some wonderful holiday memories. Back at the farm you cannot help but love the free-range chickens – they are sure to come visiting to see if anything is left over from your breakfast! A herd of cattle graze the fields and you may be lucky enough to be there when there are new born calves to see. A special extra option here is to book Lamb's Tale Shepherd's Hut (3246). This gorgeous glamping property is in its own enclosed paddock next door to Coombe Lodge. It sleeps two and has its own wood-fired hot tub!

Combe Lodge is a stunning Scandinavian-style lodge with the incredible extras of a hot tub and sauna!
There is a wonderful hot tub where you can sit beneath the stars at the end of a day out exploring in the hills.
A bird's eye view from the mezzanine area - where there is a snug and then the master bedroom.
The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped - and the cook need not feel excluded as it is open to the dining and living areas.
You can get an idea of the layout of the open plan area and the height of the space too from this picture.
Meals around this table will be filled with fun and a really happy holiday atmosphere.
All the gadgets you will need for a very special stay here.
The open plan ground floor, with two of the bedrooms and a bathroom at the far end, is so spacious and light, with a double height ceiling and mezzanine area.
Deep comfy sofas for you all to curl up in at the end of the day.
The electric wood-burner effect stove adds character to the room.
This is the mezzanine area - a quiet place to sit and read, play games or do a jigsaw.
The master bedroom is huge! There is a large en suite shower-room and another area which would work really well as a cot-room, or for storage.
Another view of the master bedroom with its king-size bed.
You will be tempted to have many lie ins here - although the beautiful Quantocks are waiting to be explored.
This is the en suite shower-room for the master bedroom - another excellent sized room in this very well planned and thought out Lodge.
This is the ground floor double bedroom.
A very cosy and welcoming room to have a great night's sleep after a day of fresh air.
This twin bedroom is also on the ground floor, again with plenty of space.
All the beds have pretty bed linens and lots of little touches to make you feel welcome.
This is the ground floor family bathroom, with a bath as well as the fitted shower.
The sauna is in its own purpose-built building just to one side of the Lodge - as is the hot tub.
An atmospheric evening shot to set the scene for relaxed evenings with family and friends.
The lovely pond at the entrance to the farm.
This is the setting for the Lodge. These fields stretch out to the far side of it.
A better idea of the immediate setting for the Lodge, with its large enclosed garden.
One of the other residents! They are sure to come and visit.
The delightful Lamb's Tale Shepherd's Hut (3246) situated next door.
This is the beach at Kilve - Somerset's Jurassic Coast.
From the top of the Quantock Hills you can see Exmoor in one direction and right across to south Wales in the other.
