Lowood is an old 1823 farmhouse set in 4.5 acres of well maintained garden and fields, with a river running along the fields. Both of us fell in love with this house straight away. It combines personal comfort with space. Our kids spend hours playing outside on the climbing frame, croquet, badminton, paddling in the river and so on. The wooded area houses a lot of local flora and fauna, providing much for adults and children to explore. The local environs contain everything anyone could wish for, from the most sedentary to the most active. The house itself is on the edge of Roadwater, so although we are on the edge of the village, it feels like we're in the middle of the country, a perfect balance.
The unique benefits of this property are 4 acres of garden/field, access to 200m of the Washford river to paddle in (it's only about 2 feet deep).
We loved the jungle room. Having two sitting rooms meant we could be all together or in different groups. Play equipment in the garden was a bonus. The big dining table seated us all in comfort. The number of bathrooms exceptionally helpful for a large party. The number of kitchens meant serving Christmas dinner for 14 was stress-free!
We had a great weekend at Lowood even with 10 adults and 9 children it didn't seem crowded. Everything we needed was there, even managed to cook a pre Christmas roast for everyone.
We had a great weekend at Lowood. Lovely big house with bundles of character. The children loved exploring around the house and enjoyed the loft space of the Jungle room. The kitchen was well eqipped and the beds were comfortable. The owner was also very felxible and accomodating. Would definatly go back to Lowood.
The 3 kitchens were very handy for our large group, with plenty of equipment to cater for the 18 of us. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The garden and games equipment were also entertaining for the children.
Plenty to do nearby, Dunster and Wells are worth a visit.
16 of us went for my Fathers 70th birthday, the kids loved the open space, the beds were super comfortable, the garden was amazing, 2 good pubs within walking distance!
Our group of three families spending a weekend away together had a wonderful time in this lovely house. There was loads of room for us all, and the house is very well equipped. The beds were amazingly comfortable! The owner was really helpful in the lead up to our arrival, and we would definitely recommend this property. Thank you.
House is set in 4.5 acres on the edge of Exmoor National park, an area of outstanding natural beauty
