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.

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.

A beautiful family home that comes alive when filled with loved ones.

By Helen R. on 16-Feb-2019

Warm, welcoming home that’s larger than the photos give credit. The owner, Jim was very helpful. There was space for all the family to come together and also have their own space for quite time whenever they fancied. The pool was an amazing success and the surrounding countryside was stunning. Thank you so much.

The house is stunning! So spacious and beautiful, perfect for our large group of 28

By Alannagh M. on 31-Aug-2018

We booked the house for my Grandmas 80th birthday weekend. We were a large group of 28 adults and teenagers and the house was perfect!!

The owners were lovely, prompt at responding to enquiries and Jim called me a few days before our arrival to give me details and check to see if I had any queries at all.

Overall the weekend was perfect we spent most of our time in the swimming pool and eating outdoors, enjoying the gardens and surrounding grounds.

I would highly recommend this property for any occasion and we would all love to stay again.

Wonderful place with great views

By James G. on 03-Aug-2018

17 of us (13 adults, 4 kids) stayed at Oakhampton Park for a week, and had a great time - definitely thinking of going back in the future. The overall ambience of the place is very personal, with family photos and knick-knacks adorning the walls.
The swimming pool was much appreciated by the kids, and the sauna was much more spacious than most. Other highlights for us were:
- Views down the valley to Wivelsicombe from the front (perfect for a G&T in the evening, or breakfast coffee)
- The most effective dishwasher I have ever encountered at a rental property.
- Enough fridges! (And sufficient kitchen surfaces for self-catering)
- We'd also recommend Exmoor Ales in Wivelsicombe - they can supply polypins of local ale to keep on tap.
- Jim was always available sort any problems out or answer questions.

Minor downsides:
- The croquet set needs updating (only three balls usable)

Beautiful house

By Poppy K. on 20-Jul-2018

We had a absolutely lovely stay at this great house. We had intentions to go out and about, but didn't end up leaving the grounds at all, because we wanted to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. The pool is big, warm and clean, with a very good sauna. There is so much to do at the house, loads of games to play, interesting little places to hang out in the house and garden and a beautiful walk to the lake within the grounds. The house is very interesting and seems to go on forever. Although the owners were next door they did not bother us at all and were helpful if we needed them. Would definitely go back again, we all absolutely loved it.
