About Haygrass House

Haygrass House is a big holiday home in Taunton for groups. When we say "big", we mean impressively spacious - large enough to sleep 20 guests in nine bedrooms with six bathrooms, a games room, a tennis court, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a full-sized football pitch, a gym, and 28 gated acres of grounds. The owners have carefully renovated this Georgian beauty, repairing and restoring original features and adding contemporary luxuries to ensure comfort and privacy. The self-catering facilities are superb, with a well-equipped kitchen matched by the elegant dining room with seating for up to 26 people. Guests have used Haygrass House to celebrate special occasions, enjoy a reunion with far-flung friends, and host workshops to focus on things like writing and well-being.

Taunton is a busy country town with a lively buzz in all seasons. The property is on the outskirts, with easy access to the M5, Taunton Racecourse and Taunton Golf Club. Shops, restaurants and other amenities are less than three miles away, with Morrisons, Tesco, Asda, and Waitrose delivering groceries to the house. There are so many ways to relax and have fun at Haygrass House that you probably won't want to leave unless you're there to attend a Somerset wedding. However, if you fancy a jaunt, local attractions and activities include the West Somerset Railway, horseriding and mountain biking in the Blackdown Hills and the Quantocks, National Trust Dunster Castle and Watermill, and Minehead's beaches and pier. Cheddar Gorge, Wells Cathedral, and Glastonbury are all under an hour's drive.

One of the many reasons guests love Haygrass House so much is that it's wonderfully easy to keep everyone happy and entertained. There is so much space indoors and outside that it never feels cramped or overflowing. Choose from lounging by the pool, picnicking in the orchard, catching up with tall tales around the open fire in the sitting room, or hosting fun-filled film nights or console competitions in the media room. Hire yoga tutors, mixologists and chefs to add to the upmarket country house weekend vibe. The size and layout of the big house allow you the flexibility to plan an itinerary to precisely suit your needs. For an additional charge there is also a two bedroom stables flat for up to six guests should you need the extra space. Please enquire with the owner.

Accommodation Comprises:

Haygrass House is a beautifully renovated holiday home at the end of a long driveway behind electric gates. Accommodation is over two levels. All shared spaces are on the ground floor. Keeping the social areas separate helps ensure those who like to go to bed early or rise late don't disturb their sleep.


  • Grand entrance hallway with doors opening into the dining room, drawing room, and inner hall with the staircase.
  • Gorgeous drawing room with elegant yet comfortable seating around an open fire. Floor-to-ceiling windows look into the garden and fill the room with natural light.
  • Tastefully decorated dining room with a chandelier, bay window, and a table that can seat up to 26 guests for meals.
  • Central kitchen fully equipped with all appliances and utensils for group self-catering and professional catering. A breakfast kitchen is ideal for letting everyone eat when they are ready in the morning, and there's also a handy back kitchen and a pantry with more space for storing food and preparing meals.
  • A well-equipped gym is a great way to work up an appetite for all that delicious food.
  • If you can't find the kids, they will either be in the media room, with its giant screen and games consoles, or in the games room.
  • Guests who need to work can use the quiet study.
  • A separate utility room has laundry and cleaning equipment. There is also a boot room. Both places are ideal for dog crates and beds if you bring your pets.


  • Beds are made up for your arrival and bath towels are included.
  • Bedroom One is the largest of nine rooms. It has a superking (6ft-wide) bed and a bay window. The ensuite has a shower, bath, WC and handbasin.
  • Bedroom Two is above the main hall and furnished with a 5ft-wide king-sized bed.
  • Bedroom Three is over the drawing room with multi-aspect windows and a superking bed. It also has an ensuite bathroom.
  • Bedroom Four is a family/quad room with a superking and two optional day beds.
  • Bedroom Five is close to the landing and features a king-sized bed.
  • Bedroom Six is another superking room with an ensuite bathroom.
  • Bedroom Seven is a corner room with twin beds or one king-sized bed.
  • Bedroom Eight has a superking room and shares a family bathroom with Bedrooms Seven and Nine.
  • Bedroom Nine has a king-sized bed.
  • In addition to the three ensuite bathrooms, the house has two bathrooms with a bath and a shower, a shower room, and a separate WC.

Outside: With 28 beautifully kept acres of grounds, there is lots of room for everyone. The property includes a full-sized all-weather tennis court, a full-sized football pitch, a heated outdoor swimming pool with a terrace and sun loungers, and ample off-street parking behind the electric gates.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen, bath towels, and wood for the drawing room fireplace are provided. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome for a small nightly surcharge. Smoking is not allowed inside Haygrass House.
