About Tracy Halliwell
John and Tracy have worked and lived all over the world and have always enjoyed interesting places with lots of experiences to offer.
Tracy Halliwell purchased this Farmhouse in 2015
Why Tracy Halliwell chose Old Cleeve
Lowood is an old 1823 farmhouse set in 4.5 acres of well maintained garden and fields, with a river running along the fields. Both of us fell in love with this house straight away. It combines personal comfort with space. Our kids spend hours playing outside on the climbing frame, croquet, badminton, paddling in the river and so on. The wooded area houses a lot of local flora and fauna, providing much for adults and children to explore. The local environs contain everything anyone could wish for, from the most sedentary to the most active. The house itself is on the edge of Roadwater, so although we are on the edge of the village, it feels like we're in the middle of the country, a perfect balance.

Great for a big family gathering with children
Lowood was perfect for a big family gathering with 3 generations; 13 adults, 2 children, babies and dogs. The children loved playing in the garden and finding the Harry Potter cupboard under the stairs. Whilst all very clean and pleasant, some of the bathrooms and loos are a bit unusual and a few are a tricky for the less mobile. The kitchen was well equipped (with a few minor exceptions like water glasses) and ideal for cooking large family meals. Thank you for a lovely stay.
80th birthday gathering
We had a wonderful time at Lowood cottage over the bank holiday weekend.
Ages ranged from 80- 6 months plus two dogs, the weather was wonderful which always helps but the house and garden absolutely made our weekend.
Every thing we could have needed was there , the beds were clean and comfortable.
The children loved the trampoline and the Harry Potter cupboard.
We would all highly recommended this property for a family gathering.
Amazing stay for a large family gathering
We had a brilliant time at Lowood, with 18 of us (12 adults, 6 kids) all able to gather extremely comfortably for a family holiday. It felt like a home away from home; liveable and cosy but really spacious, and with extra special parts for adults and kids alike (trampoline, huge outside dinner table and thrones, Harry Potter secrets, beautiful walks nearby and plentiful bedrooms). The beds were comfy and the kids adored the jungle room with all the toys and paintings. Beaches and castles were a really short drive away and so made days out with the whole family very easy. Tracy was also available by phone if we needed, and we are definitely considering coming back again. Thank you so much for having us!
Wonderful house for family weekend away
We all loved Lowood especially the children. Perfect place for a relaxing weekend away. We did not feel the need to go anywhere else. There were indoor and outdoor games - in fact everything you could possibly need and the house was delightfully quirky and well equipped. Tracy was very helpful and dealt with our special requests. Excellent.
The pictures and description dont do this house justice. We had such a wonderful weekend away in this gorgeous house. The hosts were helpful, the place was clean and well maintained, and there were lots of unexpected surprises throughout. Thank you!
Cozy, Comfy and Heavenly Beds!
Lowood is amazing! We booked this beautiful country house for a family get together and from the minute we walked in through the door we felt we had come home. The amazingly well equipped kitchen, the sumptuous sitting rooms, the heavenly beds, sheets, duvets and pillows, all worked together to make a magical stay. We all agreed that we had the best nights sleep we had ever had away from home. The house is so spacious, no one got in each others way, that is, when we actually found each other! We hardly saw our 5 grandchildren as there was so much to keep them occupied, especially watching out for the fairies in the beautiful and spellbinding grounds.
We would highly recommend this wonderful house in the enviable midst of gorgeous West Somerset, and just can’t wait to go back again. Thank you Tracy and John for making it possible.
