Nettlecombe Court sits in a secluded magical valley on the eastern edge of Exmoor National Park. The Centre is a striking example of a Tudor and Georgian country mansion. It has a range of spacious dormitory rooms and six single or twin rooms. It has extensive private grounds suitable for children playing outdoor games and don’t worry if the weather isn’t on your side as we have TV in both the common room and games room which also includes a pool table, arcade games, table football and lots of board games. The centre is easily accessible by road and is a fifteen minutes drive from Taunton station.
