    “Relaxing, spacious and comfortable”
    We're a family of five (three children under 6) and have recently returned from a great break at Lily House in Minehead. The accommodation is very spacious with two living rooms (one for the kids, one for the grown-ups!), plenty of dvds & games and a large, homely kitchen/diner with a fully equipped utility room larger than many kitchens! Bedrooms are all a generous size and the house is tastefully decorated throughout. We were only a short walk from the seafront (great for rock-pooling/crabbing ...
    We're a family of five (three children under 6) and have recently returned from a great break at Lily House in Minehead. The accommodation is very spacious with two living rooms (one for the kids, one for the grown-ups!), plenty of dvds & games and a large, homely kitchen/diner with a fully equipped utility room larger than many kitchens! Bedrooms are all a generous size and the house is tastefully decorated throughout. We were only a short walk from the seafront (great for rock-pooling/crabbing with the kids), there's a little playground at the bottom of the road, a good curry house around the corner and a few pubs nearby. We explored some of the beautiful Exmoor countryside (saw some wild ponys), enjoyed a lovely pub lunch at the Luttrel Arms in the very picturesque Dunster and ventured further to Porlock (great cheese shop there called The Big Cheese, but I'd avoid the scrumpy they sell!) I'd recommend a trip to Kilve Beach for some great fossil hunting and a cream tea in the quirky tearoom there. Butlins holiday park is only a 5 minute drive from the house and I understand you can buy day tickets. We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing break and I'd recommend Lily House to anyone. Many thanks from the Clark family!

The property

Nestling in between the slopes of Exmoor and the sea, this delightfully spacious and well-presented, detached cottage is situated on a quiet road, close to the centre of Minehead and its sea front.

A welcoming and homely feel greets you as you enter, with a sitting room either side of the hallway; ideal if the younger members of the family want to have some time to themselves.

Follow through to the lovely and well-equipped kitchen with a comfortable dining area, complete with a woodburner for the cooler evenings out of season.

A utility room which leads out to the enclosed garden adjoins the kitchen.

There is also a shower room just inside the back door, perfect for when the children come off the beach.

There are four bedrooms all on the first floor, including a super king-size double, giving flexibility for all the family.

With the house being so centrally located, the town and sea front of Minehead are both just a short walk away offering all you would expect of a popular seaside town with a choice of pubs, restaurants and takeaways.

Dominated by the wooded slopes of North Hill, the whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and there are superb walks over dramatic open moorland, through woodland and also along the coast.

Whatever time of year you visit, Lily House offers excellent accommodation for a welcome family holiday in a relaxing location.

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.
