The detail

This impressive, delightfully spacious detached house is located in a prime spot on the Somerset/Wiltshire border. Sleeping up to 12 people in five bedrooms, and boasting fantastic grounds, it’s the perfect choice for a country get together with the family.

The light and airy property has been tastefully decorated in calming, neutral tones. Downstairs, you’ll find a huge, open plan living area, which is perfect for bringing the whole family together. This sociable space forms the heart of the house and is plenty big enough for everyone to enjoy.

The welcoming lounge area is decked out with comfy sofas and a wood burner to keep you cosy on chilly evenings. With large windows overlooking the lush, green grounds, it’s the ideal spot to relax and catch up, whilst enjoying your wonderful surroundings.

The contemporary kitchen is fully fitted with everything you’ll need to feed the family, including an electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer and coffee machine. It also features a breakfast bar and large table for informal dining.

Stepping out onto the delightful, wraparound decked terrace, you’ll be treated to the sound of bird song and fantastic woodland views. This spacious, outdoor paradise, with its wooden dining table and chairs, is all set for alfresco dining, whether you’ve cooked up a storm in the kitchen or flame-grilled a feast on the BBQ.

The garden itself is refreshingly natural with sloping grounds, enchanting woodlands and even a small river to discover. Children young and old will love an outdoor adventure in their own private grounds, and the undercover hot tub, with its impressive views, can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

When the sun sets and sleep beckons, the five elegantly furnished bedrooms, complete with sumptuous linens, have been designed to optimise a good night’s rest. There’s a king size with ensuite, two doubles, a twin, and a room that sleeps four. You’ll also find a wet room with a shower and WC on the ground floor and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC on the first floor.

Wykeham House is tucked away in a peaceful area just a mile from the nearest shop, pub and restaurant. With two counties on your doorstep, there’s plenty to explore in the surrounding area. If you fancy a flutter on the horses, Wincanton Racecourse is directly adjacent to the property; the Hauser & Wirth arts centre is a few miles away, and Longleat Safari park, Cheddar Gorge and the coast are all less than an hour by car.

This is the second time we have spent family time in this beautiful house in Somerset. The first occasion was in the spring of 2022 when the family, all eleven of us, met at the house. We stayed for four nights and appreciated the house very much. The house is nicely decorated, clean and had all we needed. This included the popular hot tub which the children and adults loved, a high chair and stair gates for our over active toddler, plenty of fridges, a freezer, a very handy washing and separate tumble dryer which we needed having used the hot tub. We have recently returned home from the house where we stayed for four nights over the New Year. It was lovely to be greeted by the Christmas lights inside and outside the house too. We also appreciated the welcome pack left for us especially the cheese. Our host Tim Baylis was a saint. He was always contactable if we ever had a problem or query. One of the highlights for the children was the visits of Tim’s well behaved labrador dog named Badger. We took some doggy treats for Badger on this occasion which he was pleased to be fed by the children. I cannot fault the house, the location and the host. I would highly recommend family time at any time of the year at Wykeham View. Thank you Tim.

What an amazing property! A beautiful, cosy house with great views. The surrounding areas were great to explore and we loved having nights in making the most of the hot tub! The house was perfect for our babies too, child gates on the stairs, high chair and a cot provided (the underfloor heating in the living room was perfect for them too!). The house was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need, including extras like towels for the hot tub and shampoo/conditioner in every bathroom. Tim was a fantastic, welcoming host and was available when we had issues with turning the hot tub on, he even posted some items that we had left at the property! The perfect property for a group weekend away, we would love to return in the future!

I would highly recommend a stay at Wykeham House. We booked 2 nights for 12 adults and 2 dogs. First impressions - the area of Wincanton is lovely and the house is situated in a secluded area looking over a small valley which is gorgeous. There was plenty of parking for our 5 cars and heaps of space for the dogs to run around (they had a great time). The house itself is spacious and airy, but also cosy at night with heated floors in the living area! We had everything we needed for our stay, even the little things that you sometimes miss — toiletries in bathrooms, plenty of towels, washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs, bin bags, plenty of fridge and freezer space too. The only things we needed to bring were food and drink, to which there was a supermarket just up the road. On our first night we had a BBQ on the deck and jumped in the hot tub afterward, it was great! The hot tub tub is situated up the path, separate to the house. It overlooks the valley and has a little bar/seating area next to it, it was a perfect socialising space. The beds were very comfy and the house was spotless. Tim was a welcoming host and made sure that we had everything we needed, we really loved our stay and would definitely consider coming back.
