The Country House Oakhampton Park near Wiveliscombe / Taunton, Somerset - Stunning Rural Location, a luxury base to explore the West of England
- English, French
I am Jim Elliott, I grew up around Oakhampton as my family has farmed the surrounding countryside for generations. As a veterinary surgeon i am animal friendly with regards to pets coming to the property.
Why Jim chose Taunton
The Elliott family has owned this property for generations. I restored it in the 1980's and my family of 3 children were brought up here, resulting in many parties being held for the multitude of family occasions. With them now grown up and gone i enjoy seeing the property continue to be occupied by happy family groups and celebration events.
What makes this House unique
This property sits in it's own grounds and is exclusively yours. There are many built in facilities, in particular the 50ft heated indoor pool which can occupy children happily especially considering the vagaries of the English weather. The property is decorated to a high standard and is a luxurious location for adults wishing for a comfortable break.

Fabulous family weekend!
What a perfect venue for celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary with our family! 12 adults, 6 kiddies and 3 dogs all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What a beautiful house in a glorious country setting. The swimming pool was fantastic... A highlight for all! We would thoroughly recommend Oakhampton Park... brilliant weekend!
We stayed at Oakhampton Park for 4 days over the Christmas period with 25 family members, the age range was from 5 years to 80!
The swimming pool and sauna area are superb and enjoyed by children and adults alike.
The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery, fridge and freezer space. The lounges are spacious and comfortable and a large dining room with seating for 26 people.
We enjoyed some lovely walks in the surrounding area and would love to visit the house again in the future.
Thank you Jim and Eleanor.
Family holiday, age range 7yrs to 70+yrs. Ideal for walks around Exmoor. House was great, gardens lovely. Excellent swimming pool, well used by all. Overall a really nice holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Oakhampton Park was a fantastic place for our family of 28, including 14 grandchildren, to spend a week. The property was everything we could have wanted. The children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool which was lovely (the water was just the right temperature). The gardens were also greatly appreciated and beautifully kept. All in all, a superb location for large family reunion.
We had a fantastic time, the location is wonderful as are the facilities. Jim is a great host and was very helpful, we would certainly return. If you are looking for a beautiful location to spend time with your friends and family, l would highly recommend this venue.
Fabulous Family Weekend
Lovely weekend spent here with 21 family members. Plenty of space to not be on top of one another. The pool area is fabulous as are the gardens. We had a good weekend with the weather so made the most of the grounds with a game of clay pigeon shooting. Everyone had great fun and it broke the day up perfectly. There really is something for everyone here, if you want to relax there are lots of little nooks to go off to. Lovely weekend, would definitely go back.
