Overview

Taunton Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Manor house with heated swimming pool

Built in the late 1800's for a gentleman JP, Blackdown Manor is an impressive stone built country house set in 22 acres of landscaped woodland on the Blackdown hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The grounds are spectacular and lend themselves to a range of country pursuits (archery, fishing, clay shooting to name a few). There is also a heated outdoor swimming pool. So your group can stay and play without ever having to leave site!Please note that full property descriptions, photographs, availability & prices are kept up to date on my website which you can visit by clicking on my personal website link below.

This impressive stone built country house is set in 22 acres of landscaped woodland on the Blackdown hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The property consists of the main house and cottage which together can accommodate up to 24 guests in comfort. In front of the house is a natural pond with its own island gazebo and to the west of the property is woodland featuring many rare and specimen trees.

You will also find a two acre spring fed fishing lake which borders onto a newly planted cider apple orchard. The grounds are spectacular and lend themselves to a range of country pursuits (archery, fishing, clay shooting to name a few) so your group can stay and play without ever having to leave site!

Have had a superb weekend here celebrating a 50th Birthday and 25th wedding Anniversary.

No-one wants to go home!

The house is so comfortable and well equipped.

Thank you for all your great suggestions for entertainment. The karaoke was used ever night, casino after dinner on Saturday was perfect and the celebration dinner was divine.

It has been fantastic!

The options are virtually endless, but here are some of the more popular.

Massage: Just the thing to soothe away stress! The masseurs come to the house for a minimum of 3 hours, for either hour or half hour treatments.

Archery, laser clay, pistol and clay shooting can be arranged in the grounds, ideal if you are short of time or don???t fancy driving further afield.

If you don’t mind a scenic drive down to Exmoor, there is nothing more exhilarating than Horse Riding on the hills, this can be combined with Fly Fishing tuition and Clay Shooting as all three are quite near each other, with the prospect of meeting up afterwards for a pub lunch to tempt everyone out of the house!

On the entertainment front, our casino night is very popular (strictly for fun, we do not have a gaming licence!). We can also arrange a murder mystery or you can choose from a wide range of musicians, from a pianist to a ceilidh or from Blue Grass to dinner jazz and anything in between.
