A superb location for a family or group of friends to holiday or celebrate. Dine in the open plan kitchen diner or socialise in the huge lounge, with seating for all!  Sixteen can dine together in the fabulous double height kitchen/dining room with bi-fold doors looking directly onto the garden and boasting views over the countryside. Relax in your private heated pool, hot tub and sauna, play table tennis, football, table football and pool, or amble along the footpaths to one of the three pubs in the area, all serving fantastic food, beer and cider.

The main house is completely private with its own entrance and fields on either side, and is incredibly light and airy due to the double height glass and bi-fold doors. Upton Bourne Lodge also boasts three reception rooms, plus a kitchen and utility room, with each room leading out into the garden with wraparound patios and paths. All rooms are open plan to create a truly sociable environment, and the kitchen is fully equipped for a large group with a range cooker, two dishwashers, an extra oven and microwave. Granite worktops and maple inlaid units also make cooking a delight.

Inside, the lounge offers a wood burner to keep warm in the colder months, and a superb surround sound smart TV/audio system. To keep everyone entertained, Upon Bourne Lodge also features a glass fronted games room complete with  pool table and table football. Outside, you can enjoy relaxing in your own private heated pool (April, in 2024 will be from 27th March for Easter, to October), hot tub and large sauna (hot tub and sauna all year), visit the larger shared heated pool (with private sessions) set in a walled garden (May to September), or play table tennis, croquet, rounders, football and more.

All four bedrooms in the main house are en suite (the main bathroom interconnects with two bedrooms), with high quality mattresses, guaranteeing you will have a great night's sleep and feel refreshed in the morning. Bedrooms are all large and en suite and can be configured into almost any mix of singles and doubles, with two in the smaller detached Spring Barn which is a stone's throw away. Bedroom one is a king with en suite shower room and extra daybed (sleeps 3 max), bedroom two has a zip and link bed plus a daybed (sleeps 3 max) with a large en suite shower room, bedroom three has a zip and link bed and two daybeds (sleeps 4 max) and shares a bathroom (rain shower and double ended bath) with bedroom four which also has a zip and link bed and daybed (sleeps max 3).

South Somerset is a beautiful area with the wildlife and mists of the Somerset Levels, the history and legends of Glastonbury and King Arthur, the lovely hamstone towns and villages and maybe best of all the pubs, cider and local produce. Within an hour you can visit two coasts, the towns of Bristol and Bath, Stonehenge, Glastonbury Tor, Cheddar Gorge and undiscovered villages like Somerton and Langport with their fantastic local shops and cafes. The Barn is located in the picturesque village of Long Sutton with its blue lias houses, a church, pub and shop located around the village green. Within one mile there are two other pubs, one being regarded as the best in Somerset. Within 20 minutes you can visit Glastonbury with its Tor, Abbey and unusual shops and restaurants, Street with its factory outlet shopping, several wildlife sanctuaries, Langport, Somerton, multiple National Trust houses and open gardens, Haynes Motor Museum, The Fleet Air Arm Museum and more. The area is also full of local cider farms that can be visited(and sampled) as well as a farm shop within a mile, a local smokery and several local butchers, greengrocers and delis. 

There is parking for six cars at the house and we can arrange more if required. There is also a Berrys bus from London that stops five  minutes away, and nearest train stations are Castle Cary (20 mins), Yeovil (25 mins) and Taunton (30 mins). There are local taxis and minibuses that you can organise to get around once here. 

There will be someone available to welcome you when you arrive, and to help with anything you might need once here. But if you don't need us, you won't see us. We work hard to make sure guests' privacy is respected while ensuring facilities like the hot tub and pool are maintained to the highest standards. If you would like, we can help you tailor your celebration or holiday with catering and meals in local pubs, as well as activities on-site such as laser shooting, archery and pampering, or off- site such as cider tasting, golf and clay pigeon shooting.
