"Exceptional house, fantastic for friends or family groups"
Upton Bourne lodge is a beautiful house which is light, spacious, clean and well equipped. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large with the most comfortable beds I have ever encountered in a holiday let. The kitchen, dinning and living room are so well equipped and are lovely spaces which work so well open plan. The hot tub, garden , pool and games room were all fab too, we didn't even make it to the sauna but it look great. There are 2 dishwashers and 2 fridges and a great utility room. I loved the house so much I wanted to stay forever. The area is lovely too with a great walk to the pub. Thank you Gill we had a fab time. I would recommend this place very highly.

"Luxury holiday house with hot tub, sauna and pool"
We stayed in Upton Bourn Lodge for a weekend in August 2014. There were 8 of us and the house was fantastic - newly renovated, spacious, very well presented and well equipped. We made lots of use of the superb facilities including the hot tub, sauna, swimming pool and pool table. Gill (the owner) was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and greeted us on our arrival. I would definitely recommend this property and indeed we are hoping to go back next year for a longer stay!

"Wonderful spacious and well equipped holiday home with everything you could possibly desire in your own home!!!"
A fantastic modern property with no expense spared in offering a comfortable and luxurious stay. It offers a vast amount of space and equipped with practically everything you could possibly need for your holiday. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and the beds themselves are unbelievably comfy - to the point where you cant prize yourself out of them. Even the bathrooms are big!! There is a lovely spacious kitchen with ample dining space and seating for large groups. The large bi-fold doors situated next to the dining room leading out on to the patio creates a lovely open feel to the house and great for the summer evenings. The shared heated pool is lovely and clean with plenty of surrounding space and the hot tub and sauna are a lovely way to end the day.
Overall we had a lovely weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. We would no doubt recommend this to friends and family and hope to visit again soon.

"Outstanding property in beautiful Somerset"
Stayed at Upton Bourne Lodge in July 2014. It truly is a wonderful property. There were 7 of us and we had so much space. Lots of lovely touches, especially loved the docking stations for our music downstairs. The pool was lovely and the hot tub too. A lovely part of Somerset and lots of amazing places to explore. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending this fabulous property.
