The Cottage Beyond is the perfect large house to rent for family celebrations; we know that because guests often come here with their nearest and dearest to toast those notable birthdays and momentous anniversaries. They come for a week long holiday to pack full of fun, or they come for a weekend of merriment, but either way they go home with a whole heap of goodies for the memory bank. You should do it too.
So if you’ve got something major, something very significant coming up, start planning now. Don’t leave it till the last minute to book a large house to rent for family celebrations because it’ll be too late by then and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on a chance to mark the occasion at The Cottage Beyond because we know how much you’d love it. What used to be a humble farmworker’s cottage has been extended with pride and passion and now provides top-notch self catering accommodation for 14 people, with room for 2 more extra beds. So round up your favourite folk and bring them down here – we’re out in the sticks surrounded by miles and miles of glorious Somerset countryside, and being at the heart of a 160 acre organic farm, it’s like a world of your own.
The other thing is that The Cottage Beyond has something for all ages and it’s accessible – you can even bring the family pooch if you like! You see, we want everyone to be able to come and have a piece of this because it’s so beautiful here, we love it so much we want to shout about it from the tree tops! There’s a fabulous private spa hall with a heated pool, a sunken hot tub and a sauna; there’s a covered games area where you can hang out and play table tennis or table football, and there’s a wonderful play area in the garden for the little ones, with a climbing tower and a roundabout.
The garden is a delight; wandering around the meandering paths in late spring is an absolute joy, with lots of surprises around each twist and turn; beds spill over with flowers, all the rich hues and tantalising scents mingling together, and all the time there’s the backdrop of hills and fields and little copses that seems to roll on forever. And there’s the farmland to explore, with signposted trails and a Stamp Box Challenge, ponds to sit and dream by, and woodlands to play in, with log swings and picnic tables and it’s all so very private; the chances are you won’t see a soul, other than our dogs and the long haired goats who like to tag along on a walk.
So, a big birthday. A significant anniversary. A graduation. An engagement. Whatever the reason, whatever the time of year, round up your troops and come on down and make merry. Friends and family, one and all – we have multi-generational families coming here to kick their heels up, we have groups of retired couples, a few young families with smaller children, hen parties – that’s the beauty of The Cottage Beyond, it’s one size fits all really, all walks of life, all ages. Push the boat out and hire private caterers to come in and cook you up a feast fit for kings, or to serve you canapes and cocktails out on the decking with those spectacular views in your sights. Order a scrumptious celebration cake to be delivered to The Cottage Beyond, have our local florist fill the house with blooms. You can even book a portrait photographer to come and capture those very special moments, or something to entertain you all - perhaps a Bollywood or flamenco dance workshop, an archery session, clay pigeon shooting, fencing – just have a look at our Extras and Things To Do pages and you’ll find plenty of inspiration.
Whatever the occasion, make it as perfect as it possibly could be with a stay at The Cottage beyond, you’d be hard pushed to find a better large house to rent for family celebrations. Whether it’s a 40th birthday, a 50th birthday, a 70th birthday, a silver wedding anniversary, a golden wedding anniversary, it doesn’t matter, it’ll be the best ever. Then in years to come, when someone asks you “What did you do for your 50th?” you can say: “Oh, we went to The Cottage Beyond, all the family, we had a wonderful time…”
Life is to be celebrated. All those special occasions, all those birthdays and anniversaries, why wouldn’t you? Make it big, make it happy, make it special; make it a time to remember.
