Swandown Lodges form part of the historic Cricket St Thomas Estate, 1000 acres of beautiful countryside, woodland and manicured gardens. The estate falls across the Somerset, Dorset and Devon border – the perfect spot for discovering all the South West has to offer.

2 Blackdown is an extremely stylish lodge with everything you'll need for a relaxing break. Once inside you'll find a beautifully furnished lodge with cathedral style floor to ceiling windows that flood the living area with natural light. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped, but if you prefer to eat out, there are plenty of pubs and restaurants to sample in the local area.

The master bedroom is bright and spacious and opens out to the furnished terrace. Here you can take your time over breakfast or unwind with a book in the late evening sun.

During your stay you can take advantage of the 1000 acre estate and all it has to offer including several miles of private footpaths. Keen anglers can bring their own equipment and spend a lazy day fishing.

Please note: This property has a Monday or Friday changeover.

The West Country region

Whether your idea of the perfect holiday is a stay in rambling countryside, a bustling coastal resort or a picture postcard cottage in a quaint town, you will find it in Somerset. Blue Chip's Somerset holiday cottages enable guests to choose between coast, land and country - or one of many Somerset holidays that blankets all three. The village of Cheddar gave the world Cheddar cheese, and still produces it today. West Somerset is home to the longest preserved steam railway in England. The word Somerset translates to 'land of the summer people'


Take a stroll through breathtaking bluebell woods and countryside or adults can relax in the Cricket St Thomas Hotel leisure complex complete with sauna, steam room and indoor heated swimming pool. Keen golfers will not be disappointed as the Windwhistle Gold Club is only a mile away, an 18 hole course with stunning countryside views.

After a busy day exploring you can eat out at the local pub, only a 250 metre walk away. Here you'll find a fine selection of local food and drink.
