Lovely character property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at Lowood. Lovely big house with bundles of character. The children loved exploring around the house and enjoyed the loft space of the Jungle room. The kitchen was well eqipped and the beds were comfortable. The owner was also very felxible and accomodating. Would definatly go back to Lowood.

Lovely property, comfortable whilst also well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

The 3 kitchens were very handy for our large group, with plenty of equipment to cater for the 18 of us. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The garden and games equipment were also entertaining for the children.

Plenty to do nearby, Dunster and Wells are worth a visit.

Charming, quirky house in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three families spending a weekend away together had a wonderful time in this lovely house. There was loads of room for us all, and the house is very well equipped. The beds were amazingly comfortable! The owner was really helpful in the lead up to our arrival, and we would definitely recommend this property. Thank you.

A wonderful Charming country farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed there for 4 nights at the end of Sept 2016. We had a wonderful stay. The farmhouse is charming and full of character. There were a few things that need modernising which the owners are doing but this did not impact our stay. It is located perfectly to venture on walks and experience the beauty of exmoor. 40 min drive is Lynton and Lynnouth with the amazing walks up to Valley of the Rocks. We also visited Tarra Steps deep in the heart of Exmoor National Park. A wonderful property with lots of space, lovely fireplace and big bedrooms. 5 stars from all 13 of us that stayed.

What a fabulous house!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the property for a surprise party for my Mum's 70th birthday, we all loved it! With 15 of us staying, there was plenty of room and we could all be seated around the dining room table!

Don't expect perfection, but do expect charm & character with a wonderful feel, set in a beautiful Somerset village.

Location

From the Owner

Lowood is an old 1823 farmhouse set in 4.5 acres of well maintained garden and fields, with a river running along the fields. Both of us fell in love with this house straight away. It combines personal comfort with space. Our kids spend hours playing outside on the climbing frame, croquet, badminton, paddling in the river and so on. The wooded area houses a lot of local flora and fauna, providing much for adults and children to explore. The local environs contain everything anyone could wish for, from the most sedentary to the most active. The house itself is on the edge of Roadwater, so although we are on the edge of the village, it feels like we're in the middle of the country, a perfect balance.
