If you fancy renting a lovely 17th century House built of lovely hamstone from the nearby Ham Hill, which can sleep up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms, 2 with the most lovely views over the National Trust garden, and 2 overlooking the entrance courtyard and orchard area you will not be disappointed. It would be great for a celebration as the kitchen is large and warm with the Aga and has a lovely big table for everyone to sit at and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and have a catch up. The sitting room looks out over the garden, and has an open fire which burnt well. There are only 2 bathrooms which were fine for us, but if 8 people you may have to time your showers or baths! When cooking the Aga soon brought anything to the boil!
We loved staying there when the garden was closed to the public, the daffodils were out and it seemed as if the house and garden were all ours to enjoy. There are some walks from Tintinhull House over to Montacute which is nearby or just around the village which has a lovely local pub nearby. The garden has several rooms to it with a Fountain garden and some hidden corners, and can be visited by the public several days a week. It is not a large garden and there is also a tea shop.
Tintinhull House is a National Trust self catering, with one ground floor room which is not part of your accommodation, open to the public when the gardens are open. There are plenty of National Trust nearby to visit and it is a lovely part of Somerset.
