    Very lovely and modern very spacious for four adults and 3 dogs and a baby but one thing missing was a gate to the stairs so the dogs couldn’t go up but otherwise we had a great time there thank you

    Very peaceful, wonderful big garden surrounded by fields. If you want to eat at the local pub The George book 2 weeks in advance. We really enjoyed our stay, I'm sorry we rushed off and forgot to write in the visitor book.

    Hi Julie. We are both happy you had such a good time staying in the Old Ambulance House and yes we would also recommend booking the George in advance although we are blessed with alot of other good eating spots locally. Wes and Jen Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at this property in a beautiful part of the country."

    Lots to do in the area for all the family. Having the downstairs bedroom and bathroom was ideal for my mum. The property is done to a high standard but there are a few things that could make it more comfortable. The sofa area seated no more than 4, at a push. Definitely another sofa needed to make it comfortable for a party of 6. The fridge also wasn’t large enough to hold food for 6 people. The upstairs was spacious. It might be useful to have one of the king-sized beds as a zip-lock so that it can be made into 2 singles if required. The outside space was ideal for our dogs and children - lovely big garden. Would benefit from some nice outside seating as, again, this would make it more comfortable for a party of 6. Just a couple of small tweaks would make this property exceptional.

    Hi Sarah. We’re glad you had a great stay and have taken the time to review us. We have listened :) and added a few improvements to The Old Ambulance House with larger Sofas more garden furniture and an extra Freezer for more storage. Wes and Jen Property Owner

    Perfect for those looking to get away from it all. The property is set back from road noise and has plenty of parking with a great enclosed garden for dogs or children to roam around and play. The accommodation is of a very high standard and provides everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

    Bags of space and very comfortable for four. Bedrooms large and tidy. Very quiet location weekdays (We were not there at weekend). Good parking. Saw deer and rabbits in field. Could do with more coathangers in bedrooms and lounge chairs if six are guests. A fabulous cottage to exceptionally high standard. Pub .6 mile away.

    Good sized rooms and comfortable beds. Nice touch having King sized beds. Settee not big enough to seat full occupancy. Shower upstairs on the small side. Fridge very small for six people. Ideally a full sized mirror needed somewhere. Need iron and ironing board. Pointless having recycling waste when not enough bins and bags provided. Minor improvements would make this property 1st class.

    Property was very clean and comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. Having recently been renovated everything is new and nicely decorated. As advertised, the property is in a secluded location which is great. Did walk to the local pub a couple of times but the road is quite busy and not a particularly pleasant experience.

The property

Enjoying the wonderful countryside of Somerset in Middlezoy is this detached, converted ambulance station.

The Old Ambulance House, which is part of a decommissioned World War II airfield.

An ideal dwelling for a family of six, the property not only enjoys stylish interiors which encapsulate a mixture of the old and the new, but is an eco-friendly base, with solar panels powering the house during the day and an ample 17kw battery storage for the evenings.

Make your way down a long, private driveway to come across this delightful abode, where the original features can be noticed almost immediately, such as the large doorway.

Park up in the ample off-road spaces and make your way inside to be wowed by the contemporary open-plan living space, with the sitting area offering a seat on the sleek, corner sofa, where you can unwind and watch your favourite TV show.

Move through the space to the fabulous kitchen, a space sporting shaker-style units and containing a wealth of appliances, including a washing machine and a dishwasher!

When the chef of the group has rustled up a tasty dinner, enjoy it at the dining table whilst you catch up on the day's happenings.

As day turns to night, pick one of three tastefully furnished king-size bedrooms to enjoy a well-earned rest in, with one of these resting on the ground-floor and enjoying access to a nearby bathroom and direct access to a private patio, ideal for multi-generational stays!

Continue upstairs to find the latter two bedrooms, both of which enjoy stunning views of the country and are situated near a handy shower room.

The property additionally boasts a large garden, where your furry friends can stretch their legs on the spacious lawn and you can spot the soundless gliders soaring through the sky, courtesy of the nearby airfield.

Due to the property's fantastic location, you will be well-catered to during your stay, as a friendly pub and a village shop can be found via a short walk into the centre of Middlezoy!

Get to know the local area by paying the Westonzoyland Pumping Station Museum, the RSPB areas of Greylake and Swell Wood or the Clarks Village a visit.

Travel a short distance to Bridgwater, where walks along the weaving River Parrett and the canal, tours of the Blake Museum and the Somerset Brick and Tile Museum, along with a round of eighteen holes at Enmore Park Golf Club can be enjoyed!

Be sure to visit Taunton, with its fantastic Golf Course & Adventure Centre, the Blackbrook Leisure Centre & Spa, and Racecourse on offer.

There is still so much left to see in the wider area, with the delights of the Quantock Hills AONB and Exmoor National Park providing outdoor havens for the adventure-seekers of the group, whilst Watchet, Minehead and Burnham-on-Sea offer a range of coastal fun for all ages.

A memorable break, all year-round, choose The Old Ambulance House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
