Highercombe House, Exmoor National Park

Highercombe House is a large Georgian Grade II listed former hunting lodge, set in eight acres of parkland and gardens. The Somerset slate-clad building dates back to the 11th century and has been lovingly preserved and upgraded to provide spacious, modern accommodation.

At one time the house was the private hunting lodge of the Ackland family who owned a large stretch of land from the Bristol Channel in North Somerset to the English Channel in North Devon. Inside it has large, welcoming reception rooms with 11 bedrooms and nine bathrooms, enjoying views over the stunning surrounding countryside.

An outbuilding has been converted into a luxury three bedroom holiday cottage which can sleep six people comfortably. There is also a luxury one- bedroom suite, which sleeps two. The cottage has been refurbished in keeping with the style of the main house and features large fire places.

Outside there are lawns bordered by flowering shrubs, rhododendrons, azaleas and a new riding centre with seven stables and a dressage arena. Thus Highercombe could be run as a self-financing enterprise ? bed and breakfast, holiday cottages or livery yard.
