About Tatham House

Tatham House will blow you away. The big holiday house in Somerset has everything you could want for a self-catering group holiday. Highlights include space for 22 guests to sleep in ten beautifully appointed ensuite bedrooms, acres of grounds that include a tennis court, hot tub and indoor pool, and interiors that look like they've been lifted straight from the pages of a designer magazine. You and your guests can enjoy endless peace and privacy in a location convenient for the Quantocks and Taunton and within a ten-minute walk of The Lethbridge Arms pub in Bishops Lydeard. This house has hosted family reunions, celebrations, luxury hen weekends, and work functions. It's perfect for your plans.

You probably won't leave the grounds of Tatham House. Close the gates to the long driveway and enjoy everything that makes this place a popular house for guests of all ages. Inside, the lower ground floor is a cinema and games room featuring table tennis and a pool table as well as comfortable seating and a screen. Fold back the doors between the indoor pool and the walled garden for barbecues and relaxed socialising. We wouldn't blame you for sneaking off for a quiet hour on a sun lounger with a book you've grabbed from the library, or perhaps a game of tennis on the all-weather court is more your speed?

If you do choose to venture out, you'll find lots to do in all seasons. The Quantock Hills AONB has miles of footpaths, bridleways and mountain bike trails, with more in Exmoor National Park. You're only a few miles from Taunton and local attractions include the West Somerset Railway, Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Tor, and Minehead's beaches and pier. There are National Trust properties like Fyne Court and Dunster Castle, natural marvels such as Cheddar Gorge, and family-friendly attractions that include Exmoor Zoo, Go Ape, and the Haynes Motor Museum.

Tatham House is available for group bookings all year round. The Big House Company booking agent will help arrange catering and recommend local activities such as clay pigeon shooting, beauty treatments, murder mystery evenings, and wine and gin tasting. Please see their website for details.
