EVER thought about spending Easter in a historic, luxurious manor house with stunning grounds?

Well, now's a better time than ever, as Broomfield House, an Elizabethan manor near Taunton with space for up to 14 people is available to rent for the bank holiday weekend.

Those wanting to celebrate Easter in style can check-in from Friday, March 29 for three nights at £5,200.

A spokesperson for Big House Experience said: "If picturesque landscapes and historic buildings with roll-top baths are your thing, then this gorgeous Elizabethan manor is the place to be this Bank Holiday.

"A snug and cosy interior can be found in all seven bedrooms, and right the way through the home, including the impressive kitchen where you can whip up the best Easter roast of your life.

"So, if you want to host the biggest Easter egg hunt ever, there is no better place to explore than Broomstone House in Somerset."

Inside the house you'll find log burners, window seats and, in the snug, a velvet wraparound sofa in front of a 65-inch TV, as well as a seven-induction hob, three-oven Lacanche cooker and a kitchen island with a sociable breakfast bar.

A wood-fired hot tub and barbecue can be found in the garden, as well as an acre lawn, bordered by wildflowers and bee and bird friendly plantings.
