The Old Rectory, Seekings House

In south Somerset within the village of Odcombe, find this incredible detached stately property, once a rectory, and now providing lavish holiday accommodation. Originally built in the early 18th century with local Hamstone and a Welsh slate roof, The Old Rectory, Seekings House, has two storeys with a suite of attic rooms. The property is a beautifully presented family home, perfect for a special occasion that requires a family get-together, and what better way to celebrate than in this Somerset haven, complete with an outdoor heated swimming pool and tennis court. On the ground floor enjoy the splendor of the drawing room and library, with large bay windows looking out to the extensive grounds. A farmhouse kitchen/diner is there for you to get creative in the kitchen, with a walk-in larder and a utility room, you have more than everything you need to make sure everyone eats well, and enough room for some extra helping hands to get stuck in. On summer days sit outside on the patio while the little ones run up and down the extensive lawns and bounce on the sunken trampoline, or take a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool which you have all to yourselves. After playing a few games of tennis on the court, freshen up in one of the four bathrooms, with two containing roll-top baths for a luxurious soak. There are six bedrooms over two floors complete with large bay windows and antique furniture, creating stunning places to wind down for the evening. Along with a double room, there is a unique studio layout on the second-floor with a double bed, en-suite shower room, lounge area and kitchenette, perfect for a couple within the group who want their own little piece of the house. Looking as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside, you won't want to tear yourself away from this wonderful property, but when you're heading out for supplies, stop at nearby Greensleeves Farm Shop for fresh and local produce and local goods from the bakery, or why not enjoy a family meal out at The Mason Arms, a quaint and picturesque thatched-roof pub serving excellent food and drink. The nearby town of Yeovil boasts many attractions for all ages, begin with visiting The Yeovil Railway Centre with locomotives dating from 1915, a miniature railway and an art gallery, or why not catch a show at the Octagon Theatre. Make sure to wander around the remarkable Elizabethan Renaissance architectural beauty that is Montacute House, a National Trust property and Grade I listed building, hosting the longest hall of its type in England, Long Gallery containing dozens of portraits dating from the Tudor and Elizabethan period. The Old Rectory, Seekings House, will provide you with the most wonderful holiday accommodation, set in the gorgeous area that is Somerset.
