There is a further patio by the pool room with sun loungers. A secure and fenced childrens play area houses a trampoline, climbing frame with swings and slide. During the summer months we supply outdoor games such as table tennis, croquet and boules. There are also football nets. Plenty of room for cricket and rounders.

The West Country region

Somerset is ideally located for short breaks and longer holidays with modern links to London and the South East as well as Birmingham and the Midlands. The county offers stunning countryside from the rugged landscape of Exmoor to the rolling hills of the Quantocks and the Blackdown Hills to the stunning countryside of the Somerset Levels and Moors with its wide diversity of wild life. From stunning architecture of Bath and Wells to the shopping heaven of Clarks Village from historic Glastonbury to Leisure Parks for the children, Somerset has something for everyone.


Gray Manes is beautifully located on the edge of the Somerset Levels and Moors in the tranquil and peaceful hamlet of Low Ham, accessed by quiet country lanes and surrounded by stunning countryside. There are lovely walks and cycle routes near Low Ham from the gentle amble to the more challenging routes. Low Ham lies 16 miles east of Taunton. We are well placed to visit some well-known attractions including Glastonbury, Wookey Hole, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Hayes Motor Museum, Clarks Village at Street with great bargains to be had and the cathedral town of Wells. Close by are a number of National Trust Houses and gardens

Just two miles away is the historic town of Langport on the banks of the River Parrett, it claims to be the smallest town in England. Langport offers fishing (day tickets can be bought from the news agents) and canoeing. Langport has a good selection of restaurants, pubs and shops (including a supermarket)

Somerton is under 4 miles away and is said to have given its name to the county of Somerset. Somerton has many wonderful churches, historic buildings and plenty of restaurants, cafés, tearooms and public houses.

There are some excellent golf courses nearby.
