Croydon Hall, Rodhuish, Minehead, Somerset, TA24 6QT
Croydon Hall is a big, practical house near Minehead, in Somerset. It is available for exclusive use and suits large parties, corporate retreats and residential stays. It is also suitable for weddings.
There is room for up to 60 guests to stay, (80 if the Coach House is used) in a mixture of double-bedded rooms and rooms with more than one single bed and bunk-beds. There are ample bathrooms and washrooms, although three of the double rooms are en-suite.
The downstairs rooms are all large and can be used flexibly (the owner is happy for you to move furniture). There is a big, bright drawing room, over-looking the garden; a dining room (that can seat 75), a commercial kitchen and a bar-lounge with an open log fire. In addition to these, there are two barns, one of which can be used as a home cinema for up to 100 people.
For those needing to switch off and relax, there’s a spa, Swedish sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
In the formal gardens, there is a heated outside swimming pool (generally open from March to September), and several terraces from which to enjoy the views of Exmoor.
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“The Old Barn is an impressive space; high ceilinged and perfect for a party. It’s separate from the main building and self-contained, with its own loos, a couple of smaller rooms and easy-access from the car park.”
About The Location

Things To Do

The surrounding area is great for adventurous children – there’s Butlins at Minehead (you can visit on a day pass), water activities and high-rope challenges at Wimbeball Lake, or a visit to the beach, at Blue Anchor (about ten minutes’ drive).
