Somerset Legion House can provide Poppy Breaks for up to 75 people at one time, for one or two weeks' stay. There are 47 en-suite bedrooms all equipped with colour television offering Freeview Channels, tea and coffee making facilities and comfort cooling for summer months.

Like every Poppy Break Centre, we cater exclusively for serving and ex-Service people, their partners, dependants and carers, which gives the place a unique atmosphere.  Guests who need care are welcome if accompanied by a carer and with prior agreement, as we are unable to provide personal nursing care or administer medication. This purpose built centre and all its facilities are accessible to guests with poor mobility.
