Property Type: 
Pretty cottage sleeping 10 with a games room, for multi-generational family holidays near the coast and Porlock

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
National Trust - Lower House, Somerset, sleeps 5-10 in 5 bedrooms.

Ancient and honey-coloured Lower House is a charming place for a group getaway, whether you're celebrating a special birthday, or just taking extended family on a holiday. This part-thatched cottage owned by the National Trust and just minutes from Bossington Beach can provide you with seaside adventures aplenty.

Inside, the stylish kitchen is at the heart of the cottage with a wonderful dresser and a small farmhouse table and chairs, and the sitting room is filled with cosy sofas and a wood burning stove. There's also a small snug with a sofa and a TV, great for anyone who likes a bit of time out. And if you're taking anyone with a competitive spirit, then the games room with its table tennis table should be great for setting up a friendly tournament. Upstairs, the bedrooms are furnished with period touches and antique wooden furniture, and there's a wonderful freestanding roll-top bath in the main bathroom that you can sink into after a day of exploring nearby.

There are gardens to the side and rear of the cottage, and there's also a stream running through the garden too, so if you're taking young children they'll need to be watched around it. For those wanting to walk by the sea, then just head to Bossington beach, only minutes away from the cottage. There you can stroll the pebbles and look out for birds in the marshland. Also nearby are the Holnicote Estate and towns like Minehead and Dunster.
