Great facilities and location

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 adults and 4 children (under 7)and amply accommodated. The house benefits with a seperate playroom and lounge, TVs in each if so minded. Being 5 miles outside Taunton is a great site and ably connected to Somerset with plenty to find within 1 hours drive. The house has everything you might need; garden games, board and card games, PlayStation2 and games, fridges, freezer space, ovens and aga, microwave and 'questionably given there are likely kids' - a piano! Would have loved a garden trampoline but understand there are insurance reasons, but thermostatic controls on rads and child locks on windows and this place would be perfection indeed. Local pubs are good, but can be difficult to get into with groups. Saying all that, still easily 5 stars and wife wants to book it for next year already.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious, clean and had every facility that we could possibly need. The large garden was superb for the children and dog and the swimming pool excellent but very cold.

The property is very private and we used the outdoor eating facilities a lot.

Beautiful house in a quiet location very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

8 adults, one 2 year old and 3 dogs stayed at this lovely house for a long weekend for my 50th birthday celebrations. The house had everything we needed and more, we especially liked the pool table, football table and log burner. Everywhere was very clean and bedrooms were comfortable and warm. Would thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic Cottage in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at the House and we had great time. The rooms are great and the kitchen simply amazing and fully equipped. The place is very warm and despite the cold weather and the heavy rain, nobody complained. The living room is very cozy with its fireplace. Steph, the owner, is very helpful and replied immediately on any question. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at the Parkgate House and we would love to go back!

Lovely home in a beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

We've just returned from a 5 night stay in this lovely spacious home, which is in an idyllic setting - an excellent location for exploring Somerset or just chilling out at home (huge selection of books and DVDs to keep you occupied). The bedrooms are lovely and we spent most of the time in the huge kitchen and living area. The few issues that we had with the heating were sorted out promptly by the owners. There are some great pubs nearby - I recommend both the Blue Ball Inn or the Rising Sun (walking distance) for great food and a friendly welcome. There's a co op in the nearby village of Bishops Lydeard - just a few minutes drive away. This was a family holiday - 5 adults and one dog but there's more than enough room for larger parties. Just note though if your dog is as lively as ours - the garden is open to the front and we had to keep him on a lead and keep a close eye in case he ran for the hills! But I highly recommend Parkgate House and am looking forward to a return visit.
