Enjoy a last minute holiday staycation at Halsway Manor in the foot of the Quantock Hills. One of our dance events has had to be cancelled so we are opening our doors for an opportunity to stay in the Manor for a halfboard holiday. It is also butterflies and moths conservation week here so you’ll be sharing the manor with course participants who are exploring the natural world in the Manor and surrounding AONB countryside.
Halsway Manor is a perfect base to explore the Quantock Hills, Exmoor and West Somerset Coast. Or maybe bring your paints, craft materials, or instruments to make use of our workshop room and explore our folk library with all its folk music resources – a perfect opportunity to research some folk tunes or local folklore.
This is a rare opportunity to make your own staycation holiday in the medieval Manor House, and enjoy its gardens and woodland, and surrounding countryside. Halsway Manor is set at the base of the Quantocks AONB with many great walks on the doorstep. It’s a stone’s throw away from many places of interest, including Dunster Castle, NT Selworthy Village, the West Somerset Steam Railway, Hestercombe Gardens, Coleridge Cottage. Exmoor and the West Somerset coast are just minutes away. It is also close to many places of interest to folk enthusiasts – including Watchet where Cecil Sharp collected many sea shanties, the ruins of the cottage where folklorist Ruth Tongue lived and the village where William Winter wrote down many fiddle tunes in the early 19th century. History is all around you with prehistoric sites on the Quantocks to fossil remains on the beach near Kilve. There is plenty to do all year round.
The Bar will be open for evenings in. The stay includes half board, with breakfast and evening dinners served in dining room. Arrive from 4pm Monday with dinner served at 6.30pm and leave Friday after breakfast.
Each room is ensuite with tea and coffee available. Single, Double and Family rooms are available in the Manor House and adjoining Mews.
