  • "Everything exceeded our expectations."

    The property was extremely clean and had great facilties. The beds were so comfy, as was the sofa. We loved where the house was situated, perched on the hill with amazing views over Minehead. Just a short walk away into town and beach we found great independent shops, cafes, bars etc. We especially enjoyed the beach and harbour. Visiting local areas was so easy do to the location of the house. This was one of our best finds and highly recommend it to anyone having a staycation.

  • "Just returned from a 2 family Christmas break, 5 adults and 2 small children."

    The house was a perfect venue for us all to celebrate and the Christmas decorations made it feel very festive. The dining room was a perfect size for us all to sit and enjoy Christmas lunch and use the log burner in the evening. The lounge was a comfortable place to relax in. The elevated view overlooking the bay from the front of the property is absolutely stunning both day and night. A very warm and comfortable house for an anytime break.

  • "This is a lovely house."

    We have used it twice. Very enjoyable, beautiful views. There was a dummy under our bed though, suggesting the bed had not been cleaned underneath from previous stay. The pillows could do with being replaced too as they aren’t comfortable.

    nice seating area at the front that looks down to the sea & catches the sun in the morning.. lovely walk down to minehead town - not too far at all!

  • "House was clean and tidy."

    Further information regarding location prior to visit would useful- ie it’s on north hill prepare for a hilly walk. Prices are inflated due to covid and current travel restrictions. Disappointed tea towels and oven gloves were not provided. Overall- beautiful house and location, views were stunning! We had a great stay!

  • "A lovely house in a wonderful position at the top of a hill with fabulous views."

    A long walk up from the town but without that you wouldn’t get the views and parking in the town was no problem

  • "We travelled as a group of four women."

    We loved everything about 2 Moorlands. Collectively we have the following comments Hooks on the back of all bedroom doors BBQ Living room and dining room should be the other way round, as there is a lot of wasted space in the living room as it is currently The sun lounger was a nice touch - but perhaps have 4 rather than 1 in the summer months Terraced area very uneven Having said all that we had a great time :)

  • "Its Day We were greeted with dirty fridge handle not sanitised under government guide lines, Handle come off the bathroom door fell on one of my parents foot, @nd day the en-suite handle came off not fitted correctly."

    ... Front bedroom to the right as you look at the property My sister and law and brother brought to my attention Black human hair in the bed the sheets had to be washed.. Disappointed in the standard we paid for. We ended up cleaning throughout the property to make sure we were happy to stay . 4th day.. The house was woken up with what we thought was vibrating pipes through the property..Unbreathable noise deafening we vacated the property.and myself and my brother released that the adjoining property was undertaking major structural works to the front, I had a chat with the builders who were very polite and they explained that they would be done by lunch with the noise. This was not the case it went on throughout the rest of the week. The noise was a SDS masonry vibrating machine removing house bricks to install new open plan window/patio. We found the sound unbearable and we were unable to stay at the property during the day to rest and enjoy the stay. We thought the communication between the to property is poor not con considering our stay, Notice would of been welcomed, I understand that people need to work but in this case No excuse on the owners part, If we had notice we could of stayed in a different property.. Not enjoyable holiday. In regards to feedback in the house log i removed this out of the family sight has he family all wanted to leave feedback separately.. I avoided this as i feel it would put people off and the sanitisation would be damming. I hope you pass the feed back on please to the owners.

  • "Fantastic house, spacious ( 5 adults), spotlessly clean, just on the outskirts of Minehead ( up a hill!"

    ), but easy to walk into to through charming streets with thatched cottages and quaint streets. Just don't miss the driveway when you arrive!!!! Go up the hill of Moors road, keep an eye out for cottage sign on the left, the drive hairpins back up a steep hill!!!

  • "This property is very difficult to find!"

    I think it would be helpful to give people specific information about looking out for an uphill driveway up to the Property, as it is hidden from the main road. It took us nearly 20 minutes to find it after going up and down the same road several times. As the roads are so narrow around the property, this would have been quite stressful for a less confident driver. Other than this, I think this is a lovely property and the views are just stunning across Minehead and part of Dunster. There are many steep hills around this property, so I would only recommend it for people with good mobility. It would be extremely difficult to push a wheelchair or buggy around the Immediate area of the property, but if you are going everywhere in the car then it’s suitable for everybody. We had a lovely week with our dog and children and I would have no reservation about booking this property in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you struggled to find our property. The directions have now been updated with greater detail in the pre-arrival guest information pack. We have also erected a larger sign at the bottom of the drive with the name to make it easier for guests to locate the property. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay otherwise and appreciated the beautiful views. Property Owner

  • "A clean and spacious home, with beautiful surroundings and views over minehead were stunning."

    Owners were kind enough to leave us the keys for the garage to store our bikes. Beaches were clean, quiet, and perfect for us around low tide, not too cold in the sea either. Beds weren't the comfiest. And for the £1200 we paid a little more luxury/comfort was expected. The listing should mention the accessibility of the property. It wasn't an issue for us but the elderly or disabled would find this property difficult to get to. All in all a pleasant, relaxing stay for a much needed break.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you did not find everything to your liking. Regarding the beds, the 3 double mattresses are high quality memory foam and this is the first review to mention this in the three years I have been running my property as a holiday let! The same applies to your comments about the comfort and luxury. However, we appreciate your comments and are very pleased you still had a lovely stay otherwise. Property Owner

  • "The house, its view, its artwork, its location were fabulous."

    It was clean and beautifully presented. The owner was friendly. However, one of the double beds wasn't a double but a 4 foot bed (not a 4'6") and the mattresses on the twin beds were very thin - the adults sleeping there could feel the springs through the mattresses - great for children maybe.

    Thank you for comments regarding my property, Just to inform you and future guests that we have upgraded the twin mattresses to a thicker more comfortable style quality mattress suitable for adults. Property Owner

    The house is spacious and clean and the art work on the walls really in keeping with the area. We loved it so much we have booked to come again later in the year. Getting to the property is a little difficult the first time as the roads are very narrow and winding but arriving and seeing the views is worth it.

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.
