The Grange offers a retreat for those in search of a unique countryside escape with a difference. The wonderful location offers the perfect opportunity to explore the delights of the Somerset levels. Bird lovers may be lucky enough to spot buzzards, cranes and herons. A visit to Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Abbey and the five National Nature reserves are a must! But you don’t have to go out and about if you simply need oodles of space for energetic children (and grownups) to run around in, just make the most of the huge gardens you will have all to yourselves.

For those who prefer indoor comforts, the Grade II listed home boasts a classic and tasteful interior. Filled with wonderful original features Gothic arch doorways, exposed beams, flagstone floors, a vaulted galleried landing and open fireplaces all add to the unique atmosphere. This hidden jewel within Somerset is believed to date back to the 13th century, having undergone various renovations over subsequent years. The current owners have very sympathetically updated The Grange to create a characterful home-from-home. 

The ground floor has a welcoming large comfortable living room with open fireplace, country style kitchen with sparkling disco ball, breakfast area and superb dining room with flagstone floors. Four bedrooms are located on the first floor, including the Master bedroom with garden views and en suite bathroom. There are three further large bedrooms (two with king/double beds plus a single in each, and one twin room that can also be made up as a superking). The rooms share access to a country style family bathroom on the first floor. The roll top bath is perfect for a soak after a day of exploring Somerset. There is an additional shower room available on the ground floor.

There is no better way to end the day than an al fresco BBQ in the enclosed garden where you can soak up the last of the day’s sun. Try your hand at a game of croquet on the well-tended lawn or simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this exquisite Somerset retreat.

How long have you owned the property?
Since 1996

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The Gothic arched doorways and stone flag floors, and all with a welcoming, homely feel

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
There is a local legend that centuries ago it was a stopping off place for pilgrims on their way to Glastonbury Abbey!

Difficult to choose, but probably the dining room – dinner by the open fire makes special occasions even more special

Really do? Take advantage of the many local footpaths and lanes from the front door, to explore on foot or by bicycle (we can arrange hire bikes if required) or enjoy a day of outlet shopping at Clarks Village

Really see? Natural wonders such as starling murmurations, buzzards, cranes and herons on the Somerset Levels, Wookey Hole and the Cheddar Gorge and caves...

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
One of the loveliest things about the place (and often commented on by visitors) is how peaceful it is in our wonderful corner of Somerset

    We were 4 adults and 5 kids, and we were lacking for nothing. The hosts were very helpful, the garden is huge and welcoming, perfect for kids, the house very well equipped, extremely comfortable. Highly recommended.

  • Thank you for a wonderful stay

    Created on 17/01/2019

    We had the best stay at The Grange! We were lucky with the weather too and played loads of games with the kids in the garden. My favourite feature has to be those amazing doors and all the original features kept by the owners when they renovated the place. It is full of charm and makes you feel right at home as soon as you step in. We will be back next year. Cannot wait to be next to the fire place and spend some quality time with the family in this amazing house! It’s really a home away from home.

  • We would definitely come again

    Posted by Pam on 07/01/2019

    Fabulous accommodation in a tranquil setting. Luxuriously decorate, cosy warm with a lovely open fire. Beautiful house with lots of character, ideal for a relaxing holiday.

  • Perfect

    Posted by Zoe on 04/01/2019

    We had a lovely time at The Grange, it was beautifully dressed for Christmas - cosy and completely perfect. I can't wait to come back in Summer to be able to enjoy the garden and beautiful surroundings.

  • Beautiful house, lovely setting.

    Posted by Naomi on 02/01/2019

    We loved the fireplaces and had wonderful cosy nights. Bedrooms are so big! We look forward to our return trip soon.
