Broomstone House The South West

A charming English manor in a natural idyll

If your idea of a country break includes banquets in a historic, double-height dining hall, games in a billiard room evocative of the roaring 20s, and views of one of England’s most picturesque landscapes, Broomstone House is for you. A picture-perfect Elizabethan manor just two hours from London - it sits at the foot of the Quantock Hills in Somerset in a nature-rich estate that includes an organic farm and ancient woodlands.

In restful rooms, where sunlight suffuses through leaded windows, relax into the calm luxury of soft textures, muted tones and cosy comforts including log burners, window seats and, in the snug, a velvet wraparound sofa in front of a 65-inch TV. Create those banquets in the kitchen, where there’s a seven-induction hob, three-oven Lacanche cooker and a kitchen island with a sociable breakfast bar.

Seven individually curated bedrooms echo the understated luxury of the reception rooms, and in the four ensuite and two shared bathrooms, roll top baths or rainfall showers leave you feeling pampered and refreshed.

Outside, in the walled garden, enjoy the dining area, wood-fired 'stock tank' hot tub and lawn (all new from April 2024, along with a Kadai wood-fired BBQ). A further acre of lawn is just right for badminton, croquet or boules. Within the estate, nature flourishes, with wildflower margins, bird and bee-friendly planting, and thoughtful landscaping to encourage a variety of habitats. Ancient woodlands, copses and spinneys break up the organic farmland and wild deer, goldfinches and rare fungi can all be spotted. Running from the estate to the coast, are 7,000 acres of open access countryside which, along with the Quantock Hills, provide unsurpassed walking, cycling and horse-riding opportunities.
