Chard is a historic market town whose charm lies not only in its stunning backdrop of green fields and hills, but also in its quaint English country look and feel; its centre is a High Street Heritage Action Zone. A mere train ride away from the famous Jurassic coast and close to England’s newly-designated biggest super nature reserve, the Somerset Wetlands, this is an exquisitely rich site of natural British beauty.
Holemoor Stables is set on a private estate deep in the glorious Somerset countryside. A Mediterranean-style courtyard nestled in the midst of the accommodation inspires a communal feeling, with a warm and cheerful feel to the interiors. Light and airy shared spaces, a garden patio looking out onto a smooth lawn, an indoor heated pool, and a games room all feature in giving it a luxury feel.
Each room in this fully ground-floor holiday house is ‘zip and link’, meaning the beds can be made up as either two Twins or one King at your request. Two of the bedrooms contain ensuite wetrooms, while the other two contain ensuite shower rooms where the shower may need to be accessed by a small step.
From breathtaking landscapes to heartwarming animal interactions, this holiday will immerse you in nature. Taste the sea air as you walk or boat along the rugged Jurassic coast. Try your hand at falconry or take a stroll alongside fuzzy alpacas. And don’t forget to explore the county’s rich history, with ancient sites woven into the fibre of the countryside; the Somerset area has been inhabited since prehistoric times and there are plenty of historical locations waiting to have their secrets discovered.
Every holiday with Dementia Adventure is unique! Your itinerary may vary depending on the date, and will be released to you in good time before your departure — usually about two to three weeks prior.
