Tatham House is a luxurious large house for weekend breaks or holidays in Somerset, with an indoor pool, hot tub, tennis court and cinema room.

Tatham House is a beautiful house of a very high standard, with plenty of great facilities that make a wonderful space for entertaining and enjoying time with family and friends.
Downstairs, leading from the oak hallway, there is a charming, secret doorway to the small library. The 2 large sitting rooms have plenty of sofas, large windows to the garden and a fireplace – a perfect room for pre-dinner drinks, after dinner games, cosy chats and downtime.

The dining area, adjacent to the stylish kitchen, overlooks the terraces and lawns. It has a large oak table, mood lighting and comfortable seating for all your group – the chefs among you don’t need to feel left out, because the kitchen is open to the dining area, with a neat screen that slides across, for when you may want to hide the kitchen away! Everything you need for a group of 22 is there – plenty of cooking equipment, glasses, crockery, a range cooker and a conventional oven, 2 dishwashers and lots of fridge space.

Entertainment wise, this house has so much to offer, you may not want to leave it. The indoor pool has bi-fold doors to the sheltered walled garden with plenty of tables, chairs and loungers. From here, the all-weather tennis court lies just beyond and the large hot tub sits beside yet more loungers. Play 5 aside football or basketball on the tennis court too.
The gardens and orchard are large and flat, perfect for games, sunbathing, an impromptu picnic or some delicious morsels cooked on the built-in brick barbecue. The terraces wrap around 2 sides of the house and have delightful views towards the Quantock Hills.

Indoors, the lower ground floor is home to the pool table, table tennis, bar billiards and the cinema room with a large corner sofa for a big match and movie watching (Sky Movies included).
Bedroom-wise, there are 8 spacious bedrooms upstairs, all are individually decorated, with extremely comfortable beds and have spacious and high spec en-suite bath or shower rooms – some have both. One of the large upstairs bedrooms sleeps 4, great as a family suite, again with its own en-suite shower room. Downstairs, there are 2 bedrooms with en-suite and the same high-quality furnishings.

If you want a helping hand, let us know and we can organise as much or as little as you require. We have top local chefs who can cook for you, beauticians to pamper you and activity leaders who can entertain you.

We stayed at Tatham House with our family. The kitchen and dining area are amazing, not only the high standard of design and equipment but also the best gorgeous entertaining table which was beautifully dressed for our arrival. The bedrooms are all finished differently and with many beautiful details and the beds are VERY comfortable. The linen used is of very high standard indeed. All around the house you could look out on a gorgeous well-kept garden. The pool was a great success with the children and again there were some really lovely design touches. My only reluctance is that is is quite close to a fairly busy road, but then, I am very sensitive to that

Yet again the Big House Company provided us with a superb house for our family to gather and enjoy fun, food and good times together. The house is amazing with 10 good sized bedrooms, all with en suites, large living rooms and a kitchen better equipped than home. The games rooms and cinema room were used by all at different times and the indoor pool and hot tub an extra exciting activity during our holiday. We ran out of time for a game of tennis and next time we are coming for longer to fit everything in. The grounds are beautifully kept and quality and plentiful patio furniture, make this a fabulous destination for the summer also. The dining room had an amazing table and plenty of space and where we spent most of our time catching up with family news and keeping the people cooking our meals company. Self catering is so much fun when the kitchen is so well equipped and crockery, cutlery and glasses were so plentiful. Bedrooms, bathrooms and the whole house are beautifully refurbished and the beds provide amazing sleep. We’ve booked again for a week next time. Thank you Big House co.

I highly recommend Tatham House and The Big House Company who we booked through. Peter was really great to deal with from the first contact, always responding quickly, and answering all our questions. As it was our first time organising a retreat, we visited the house a couple of times before the event and he was also very accommodating about that. The house itself is stunning, spacious, and luxurious. It is exactly as shown in the pictures and as described, and all our guests absolutely loved it. We did have one issue during our stay but this was resolved within a few hours by Peter and his team - we were so impressed. We will be going back next year. I would say, don't hesitate to make your booking, you won't regret it.
