“Both the house and grounds of Widcombe Grange were spectacular”
Reviewed June 7, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The house is set in beautiful parkland where there are established trees, lawns, flowers, a lake with rowing boats and a swimming pool. My ten grandchildren had a wonderful time making camps, swimming, bird-watching, rowing, playing billiards and table tennis in the games room, and having races and a treasure hunt.
We enjoyed the hot tub, playing croquet, and walking through the woods.
The house was welcoming, comfortable, and elegant as well. Not at all prissy, it was full of character. The kitchen was well-equipped - lots of freezer room, two dishwashers and all the cutlery and crockery you would need for a big party.The dining room suited our party of 23 perfectly.

“Amazing venue for Easter Family&Friends Party”
Reviewed April 14, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Widcombe Grange is set in large grounds in the Blackdown Hills but is only a few miles from Taunton and Wellington. We stayed in April 2018 with friends and family. Easily enough space for 20+ guests, hot tub, games, grounds and boating lake kept kids & teenagers happy. A very relaxing min-break. We were able to arrange one extra night stay at very short notice too. Expect to be back soon!

“Superb house party venue!”
Reviewed February 4, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I rented the house for a weekend House party for my 50th birthday. I wanted to have a venue large enough for everyone to stay comfortably, and to have a space to have a big loud party on the Saturday night. The Grange was perfect, beautiful and cosy in the house and in the cottage, wit(the games barn providing a marvellous venue for the band and the DJs. I just can not fault it - every bedroom was gorgeous, the sitting rooms so comfortable and cosy, yet huge, and the dining room table is out of this world!
Oh and the hot tub, oh and the kitchen, oh and the grounds.... a wonderful stay and an unforgettable weekend. Thank you!

“Excellent”
Reviewed January 4, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We booked Widcombe Grange for a Christmas break for 22 members of our extended family across 4 generations. Each and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed the lovely house and grounds. The house is extremely homely and has a natural flow that really compliments group living. Particularly the dining room with a magnificent table accommodating all with plenty of space for socialising. As we had also brought our dogs, we made full use of the grounds which, albeit mid-winter, were truly wonderful. All in all, the whole package lived up to our very high expectations and did exactly what was said on the tin. We would not hesitate to recommend this magnificent facility and would almost certainly use The Big House Company again.

Thanks to Anthony and Beverley for the great service in accommodating our requirements.

“Great location, great property, perfect for large groups and parties,”
Reviewed December 20, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We had a fantastic weekend at Widcombe Grange and would highly recommend the venue to large groups, families and parties. The house itself is well decorated and maintained to a high standard, the hot tub is great and all rooms are large and spacious. The nearby pub the Hollmans Clavel serves a great sunday roast, but would suggest booking in advance for large groups. We would highly recommend Widcombe Grange for all large groups.

We had the weekend in Widcombe Grange with Big house and it was AMAZING. We all thought the pictures were better than the website and the property was so big and despite the rain, we all had various things to do in the property. Anthony was very nice, attended check in and check out and all our crew were super happy with the arrangement. We'd definitely like to stay with Big house again.

“Great Venue for a Stag Weekend”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Where do a bunch of sensible blokes go for a stag do? Clay pigeon shooting & archery, both done within the grounds. Heated swimming pool (perfect for the end of September!), hot tub for blossoming bromances.....
Really good local curry house that delivered 15 piping hot meals within the hour on a Friday night. Ample bedrooms so no-one had to share. We had purposely brought our booze so can't comment on the local pubs. On arrival, had the customary tour of the property by Anthony from 'The Big House Company', very nice guy, said what he had to say and just let us get on with it. As a venue, it is very clean and tidy and extremely well presented. Would definitely recommend Widcombe Grange, would also be a fantastic place to hire for Christmas!
