Visit Somerset

We want your self catering holiday break to be as enjoyable as possible. If you're visiting Somerset for the first time, you are in for a treat! And if you are returning, don't worry, there are plenty more wonderful places to explore.

Somerset has some of the largest curated collections in the UK from museums, theatres and galleries to theme parks and nature reserves to caves hand historic coastlines. It is truly a county of contrasts.

There are also some popular local attractions, most notably the Quantock Hills - for amazing walks and stunning views of the beautiful countryside and Wellington Monument - a triangular obelisk designed to commemorate the Duke of Wellington's victory at the Battle of Waterloo. Langford Budville is also surrounded by the Blackdown Hills and situated on the doorstep of Exmoor national park - both areas of outstanding beauty.

Less than a 10 minute walk from Tom's House is Langford Heathfield reserve, Somerset's second largest reserve, a mixture of ancient and secondary woodland scrub - a biological site of special scientific interest.  A mecca of flower, fauna and wildlife including the heathfield ponies, deer, an array of insects, birds (including owls), kingfishers, kestrels, and not forgetting the beautiful wild flowers, grasses, trees, and shrubs.

Tom's House self catering accommodation provides the perfect launch pad to explore the beautiful South Devon coast, the stunning North Deven beaches AND the North Somerset coastline. However, with such stylish and relaxing accommodation we wouldn't blame you for not leaving this wonderful holiday house and beutifully maintained grounds at all!

We loved our stay at Tom's House. We stayed with extended family including my father-in-law who is in a wheelchair. The access was really good for him with everything wide enough and rooms big enough and the lift was a real bonus. He felt much more independent the week we were there than he has in a long while. We really liked the upside-down design of the house which means that you get fantastic views across the fields and the brilliant idea of putting a lovely deck up there, which you can access from the kitchen and sitting room. I had my morning coffee out there and it felt so peaceful and beautiful. The house is really well designed and feels very homely. We are really into cooking and the kitchen is just full of all the things you need, so it just felt like home.  It wasn't warm enough for a barbecue the week we stayed but the garden looks really well equipped with all the right furniture and stuff for a good evening outdoors. My daughter and her boyfriend stayed in the annexe section which they loved, as it was like having their own cottage for the week.Thank you so much for having us, we had a brilliant stay and we'll definitely be back.
