Manor house sleeps 50 with indoor heat­ed pool

Dun­ster, Somerset 

Knowle Manor nes­tles in the peace­ful Aville val­ley sur­round­ed by the hills and woods of Exmoor. Set with­in 120 acres of its own land­scaped grounds and gar­dens with lawns merg­ing into the sur­round­ing wood­land. Our lake leads down to the banks of the riv­er Aville, which mean­ders through the grounds and then onwards to the medieval vil­lage of Dun­ster with its mag­nif­i­cent cas­tle and yarn mar­ket, the scenic and dra­mat­ic Exmoor coast lies just beyond.


The Grade II list­ed Manor House is impres­sive and extreme­ly spa­cious, it offers 19 en-suite bed­rooms with three very large recep­tion rooms on the ground floor as well as a roomy well equipped Kitchen.The house is cen­tral­ly heat­ed though­out, and enjoys the ben­e­fit of nat­ur­al water from its own spring.The views from the lead­ed win­dows are across the land­scaped gounds and lake to the woods and moors beyond. Relax in front of open- hearth fires in the sit­ting room or in the bar.


Ameni­ties include indoor heat­ed swim­ming pool, games room, foot­ball nets, bad­minton, cro­quet, exten­sive lawns, lake and riv­er fishing.This is the per­fect loca­tion for large groups to spend a cel­e­bra­tion week­end or fam­i­ly holiday.
