Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent house Somerton is a spacious and well maintained house for a large group of people. We had a number of families stay with children ranging from toddlers through to teenagers. All children were easily entertained with a large front and backyard, toys provided and table tennis. All this made for an easy and peaceful stay for adults. We will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somerton is beautiful We stayed at Somerton for a family reunion weekend and had a wonderful time. The best part was the gorgeous garden and grounds. Just lovely. The teenagers loved the table tennis table in the games room and the younger kids loved the swings and trampoline. There really was something for everyone. Even the bedroom configuration worked well as there were three distinct bedroom areas of two bedrooms each which meant everyone had privacy but could still stay together.
