Wootton House, Butleigh Wootton, Somerset, BA6 8TX

Description of the holiday cottage

Wootton House is a fine country house with a Queen Anne facade on the edge of Butleigh Wootton, overlooked by the monument of Admiral Sir Samuel Hood high on Polden Ridge. The house has evolved since its original construction in the 18th cent. for the Hood family. It sits on a 1,000 acre estate comprising gardens, woods, lake, parkland and working farms.

It has a large mature garden (all yours) with croquet lawn and hard tennis court; across the fields are fishponds, and there's a small lake in the woods. At the end of the drive is the Home Farm, where riding can be arranged with the tenant farmer and where freshTor Beef', grazed on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, is sold.

This is a great place for a family reunion, with space, peace, character and good facilities so that people can do things together or on their own as they wish. Our family loved it!

As you can see below, we used this house last year and everyone looked forward to coming again- this time to get the family together to celebrate my wife's 70th Birthday. It's well equipped and clean, with a great kitchen where 12 of us could eat together. We didn't bother using the very dark and rather "heavy" dining room! The (mostly) teenage kids loved playing the grand p

Just digging out the details for a friend and realised that I hadn't done a review!

We stayed in February, three years in a row, with a large group of our friends. The House met our every need with a variety of bedroom types, plenty of bathrooms, a decently large kitchen, seperate dining room, and two comfy sitting rooms.

It was an absolute haven, even on the windiest wettest days in February and we had some wonderful times there.

There is so much to do withing a reasonable drive - and Glastonbury is so close the health conscious can walk it.

We loved it

Where do you start!

My wife & I booked this house for a week to celebrate our forthcoming golden wedding anniversary by getting together with our family of 3 children + partners and 7 grand-children aged between 10 & 20). Everyone rated it the best time we have ever shared together. Why was that?

The house is large and rambling, with a lot of history around the Hood family (who have a rich naval history). There are 8 double bedrooms, 2 with 4-poster beds and 2 with en-suite facilities, but there were 4 extra bathrooms (counting one downstairs). All w

A group of us spent a long weekend at this country house in November 2015 and had a great time.

Despite the cold Winter mornings, the house was lovely and warm and there was plenty of wood for the two sitting rooms with open fires. (suggestion for future guests that there should also be kindling available or a hatchet in the wood store).

The kitchen has plenty of space for a large group and has all the facilities required.

Games room includes table tennis, darts, a pool table (not level) and loads of other outdoor games and kids toys etc. I'm sure that k
