“The perfect large group birthday venue”
Reviewed 25 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

I wanted a large house with double bedrooms to suit a group of eight friends for my 50th birthday. Owlscombe looked good on paper but it surpassed our expectations. It is a large and extremely well equipped house in a stunning location overlooking Porlock Weir and beyond.

A well planted garden leads into a field and a short cut to the pub! Our dog loved the garden - and his cosy spot in front of the Aga!

We arrived to find fresh flowers in each room and a cheese and wine gift. And the owner has been very friendly by email. We all gave it a huge thumbs up and will definitely be back.

“Exceeded our expectations - beautiful, well kept and welcoming property with stunning views”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booked this for ten of us for a surprise family reunion for Mum's 80th birthday. Lovely property and location, well equipped throughout. With fresh flowers throughout the house, welcome provisions & drinks, comfortable furnishings and beautiful garden & woodland to wander, what more could you want?
With relatives travelling from Canada and Scotland, we couldn't have been more pleased with Owlscombe - would love to have stayed longer!

“Beautiful House, everything had been thought of!”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Owners had thought of everything. Stunning views and peaceful surroundings. Highly recommend trying the cinema room at Millers down at the Weir (and sampling a Millers Gin whilst you are there!), thai street food also fab, takeaway pizzas from Millers are divine and the pub is so friendly! We can't wait to return to the house, the area and the beautiful surroundings, even when it rained the view was still out of this world....
