This Georgian family property dating from 1734, has been completely renovated and is approached by a curving drive through its own parkland and is situated with a southerly aspect enjoying far reaching views over the lake and surrounding glorious countryside. The rear of the house is enfolded by a beautiful traditional terraced walled garden with a private 50ft heated indoor swimming pool and a fully equipped gym.

Whether it is a weekend away with friends or a family celebration, Oakhampton park is the perfect luxury venue.

Oakhampton park is not a hotel, it is a relaxing family home, sumptuously comfortable, with plenty to entertain you and your children whatever the weather. You will have exclusive occupancy of the house, garden and facilities for your stay, so the feeling of privacy is complete.

There are 12 double bedrooms, most with private bathrooms, each with their own unique character.

The area is wonderfully rural with country pubs and small local villages close by.

Wiveliscombe, just 2 miles away, has a thriving centre where you can browse in tempting independent shops. You could organise a day of horse trekking or cycling on the Quantock hills, take a trip on the steam railway to Minehead, or visit one of the many historical sites in the area. Or you could just relax by the pool and enjoy good company.

Well behaved dogs are welcome and there are long or short walks for them to enjoy over the farmland or down to the lake and woods. We are only a short drive away from many beautiful walks over the Quantock Hills or along the coast. Blue Anchor beach is especially beautiful and very welcoming to dogs.

Family Holiday

By Gordon B. on 03-Aug-2019

Family holiday, age range 7yrs to 70+yrs. Ideal for walks around Exmoor. House was great, gardens lovely. Excellent swimming pool, well used by all. Overall a really nice holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Family Gathering

By Gerald W. on 27-Jul-2019

Oakhampton Park was a fantastic place for our family of 28, including 14 grandchildren, to spend a week. The property was everything we could have wanted. The children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool which was lovely (the water was just the right temperature). The gardens were also greatly appreciated and beautifully kept. All in all, a superb location for large family reunion.
