- Very Good
New year stay with the whole family fabulous house with great facilities hot tub sauna games room with pool table and football table kept the grandchildren amused all weekend I can’t recommend this place enough it has that extra special feeling xx
We stayed at Upton Bourne Lodge for my 50th. What a perfect choice for a large family gathering. The kids loved the hot tub and field to run around in, and the adults loved the big dining table, comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen.
“Ideal Family Holiday”
The Somerton location is perfect, with lots of visitor attraction within easy reach. The accommodation was excellent for our large family, 8 adults and four children the eldest being 5 years old. There was plenty of room for us, and with the hot tub and sauna for the adults and pool and games there was always something to keep everyone occupied. With plenty of pubs, restaurants and take-aways in the local area we only cooked 2 meals. We visited the Haynes International Motor Museum, Minehead on the West Somerset Railway, Weston Super Mare, Glastonbury, Wells, Wookey Hole and Cheddar. A wonderful holiday made even better by the excellent accommodation and facilities.
“Fabulous House and location”
We stayed 8 months ago, I am so sorry it has taken so long to write this review but better late than never! I hired this house for my 50th birthday weekend with 10 friends and incorporated Yoga into my weekend. We bought our own Yoga instructor and we had the best time. The house had literally all you need for a comfortable stay and the facilities are excellent. The was so much space but at the same time it was cosy and warm. the bedrooms were all of a high standard and very clean. We thoroughly recommend this place and would book again if coming to the area. Communication with the owner Gill was also excellent at all times.
“Family and friend birthday holiday”
Amazing time had at the lodge great space for 14 of us, dining area great for big evening meals, the heated pool hot tub and sauna were perfect and used a lot. Pretty cottage garden and a great field for ball games, lovely village with lovely pubs the Devonshire arm and a short drive is the halfway house both excellent. The owners were very helpful if you needed anything.
We had an amazing experience staying at Upton Bourn Lodge and Spring Barn. The booking was easy and hassle free, the directions and checking in procedure was also very easy and well structured. We were met by one of the staff/caretakers who helped us to settle in and answered all of our questions. The properties themselves were outstanding in all areas; cleanliness, modern, functional, kitchen equipment, audio visual equipment, outside facilities, etc. I cant find any reason to make anything other than statements of complete satisfaction. The weather was very stormy the entire time although the properties and quality of furnishings and fittings more than made up for our slightly dampened spirits - there were amply games and children s toys to keep them occupied indoors. The only negative perhaps would be that we had to bring our own towels and due to the fact most of our extended family flew from various locations we had to buy towels. In summary, this is a perfect venue for an extended family reunion or a quiet relaxing holiday, whichever your looking for. We'll definitely be back. Thanks Gill and Simon!
“Large group enjoying the first spring warmth of 2016 and many board games”
I hosted a large number of folks who regular meet with each other at a number of venues. Upon Bourn Lodge met all of our requirements with large open areas and a highly configurable room setup. Wifi provided and an excellent TV system in the main room. I'd suggest only using the wood burner in the living room if its very cold as that thing kicks out some serious heat. Multiple ovens, double large fridges and a freezer ensure you've enough space for everything. Local supermarket delivered to the door. There is also a huge supply of plates, pans, utensils etc. I would recommend you bring sharp knives if carving. Excellent recycling from the local council, so everything is sorted out. Useful when your group consumes a number of bottles and tins. The Lodge isn't isolated although it does have access to fields and its own hot tub and sauna, all put to good use over the weekend. If you wanted total isolation this isn't it. The owner provided a good walk around and tour on arrival, the property is in good condition. A welcome cake was a nice touch. Hot water and heating were amazing. A booklet of hints, tips, local attractions is provided and useful. The property provides no towels, if you're organising the event I suggest bringing some had towels along for the various bathrooms. I am looking to book the property again in the future.
“Nice house, friendly owner”
We stayed at this property for a long weekend. The owner had provided us with very helpful information before we arrived and as a result we managed to book a meal at a local pub. There were 11 in our group ranging in ages from 12yrs to 72yrs. We ate at the lime kiln inn on Saturday evening and had a fabulous meal. Very generous portions and attentive staff. The house was clean and well equipped although we did have to take our own bath towels and hand towels which I think for the price we paid for the weekend these should be included. Some of the downstairs bedrooms were quite chilly and we needed to keep the heating on to take the chill off. The hot tub and sauna were a nice touch. Wifi was very poor and found we could only get a signal in the dining area, although we did have a lot of devices. Would have been nice to have sky tv or sky sports. Beds were comfy and plenty of storage. Hot water was fine all weekend. Walked to the local village and visited cheddar gorge and Clarks shopping village during our stay. Both worth a visit. Used the local Indian and Chinese takeaways as well neither delivered but food was tasty and reasonable. Owner Gill was very helpful and also made us a lovely fruit fake which was appreciated. Plenty of room to spread out in the lounge and was nice to all be able to sit together for meals.
“A lovely place to stay, perfect for a group of friends or larger families”
To celebrate a 50th birthday, 7 of us stayed at Upton Bourn Lodge because of the wealth of facilities there (sauna, hot tub, pool table, table football, log burner, large TV with blue ray and surround sound, free WiFi, swimming pool in the summer). The lodge is modern and bright, and has wonderfully large, open communal areas and plenty of bedrooms with the Spring Barn available to us as well. There are ground floor amenities and bedrooms for anyone with limited mobility, but we're still a fairly sprightly bunch and made good use of the outdoor areas, as it has been a mild January, although we stayed on site rather than explore the area because of the early, dark nights and occasional rain. There are plenty of different board games in the lounge, to help keep younger generations occupied and enjoy shared family time, and there are multiple fridges and cookers if you need to cater for large parties. A home made fruit cake and fully laid out tea tray greeted us, which was a lovely, personal touch, although I would recommend you heed the advice and bring towels! ( 2 of our party didn't, so the washing machine came in handy and the spirit of sharing won through) Upton Bourn Lodge is an excellent venue, in a lovely setting and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great place to stay with a large group.
Owner's reply: Andrea...thank you for all the kind words and we are so happy you enjoyed yourselves. I wish I had known about the towels as I would have brought some up for you.....but sounds like you had a good team approach on this that worked. Hope you come and stay again when the pool is open and the sun shining!
“Fantastic long weekend”
Upton Bourn Lodge was a lovely place to stay. Our group of 12 had a really great long weekend away. Perfect for relaxing in the colder months! Gill was so kind and helpful when we had some trouble adjusting the radiators. Highly recommended and we hope to come again.
