The Property

This quaint, old detached cottage dates back to the mid-19th century and is located in a quiet residential street in the popular seaside town of Minehead in North Somerset. Character and charm are definitely words to describe this former smithy, which now provides a spacious Minehead cottage for your well-deserved break. There are two cosy sitting rooms, ideal for adults and children to have their own space, plus four spacious bedrooms offering flexible sleeping accommodation. There is a sunny, enclosed garden with a lawn, a barbecue and creative planting in this Minehead cottage, providing a relaxing space for alfresco dining. Just a twenty minute walk from this Minehead cottage and you reach the lengthy promenade and seafront of this vibrant coastal resort, while at the end of the road is an award-winning fish and chip shop, perfect for a traditional seaside treat after a day on the beach. Take a walk from your Minehead cottage up to the top of North Hill, dominating the town and giving stunning views towards Wales. Sitting on the very edge of the National Park, Minehead is where Exmoor touches the sea and is ideal for lovers of the coast and the countryside, offering traditional seaside fun, mixed with the thrills of riding an Exmoor pony or wandering in spectacular stretches of Lorna Doone countryside.

About the location

MINEHEAD

Taunton 24 miles; Bridgwater 27 miles.

The popular seaside resort of Minehead occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset Coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridlepaths and heather clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
