  • "We enjoyed our weekend at Kittiwake; it was clean and warm and a great location overlooking the sea."

    Unfortunately, all the beds were very uncomfortable (particularly the single beds), the large bedroom is quite cold and the duvet was totally inadequate for this time of year (we had to layer all the throws on top for extra warmth) and the pillows were not particularly good quality.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay, our aim was to walk or hike during the day and eat out in the evening."

    Kittiwake is in the perfect position for both, close to the South Western costal path and close to restaurants and pubs so we didn’t have to move the car all week. The view from the veranda is great and we enjoyed a few glasses of wine sat outside in the sun. A big bonus was having the off-road car park. The only comment, and it didn’t affect our stay at all, is that the front room settee and and carpet could do with an extra clean, probably it is during the off season I don’t know. All in all we had a great stay and would go back again.

  • "The apartment is very spacious with amazing views of the sea and beach and had most amenities apart from a washing machine or dryer but these are available in a separate room on the next stairs landing but they only takes £1 coins and it's £2 for half an hour so you will need to collect a few for a load of washing !"

    There is no welcome pack which is unusual for Sykes cottages even a pint of milk would have been a nice touch? The TV is quite small and there is no sky or freeview so just the basic channels which is quite unusual these days. We had no hanging rail in the twin bedroom on arrival which I had seen should be there on the Sykes website so queried this and Lawrence brought one up 30 minutes later which was great

    There was a very musty smell when we arrived.

  • "Have stayed here before."

    Lovely flat to stay in very clean,comfortable and quiet. Lovely to be able to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by. We had great weather with glorious places to visit. Took the coastal bus which was only (£4 return) to Lynmouth, the views were stunning. Only thing I'd of liked to have been there was a iron as there is a board, hairdryer, small hover.

    The flat was equiped with all we needed and was very clean and roomy! The decor was up-to-date and in good condtion. It was a quiet spot with wonderful views over the prom and sea. Thank you. We hope to come again one day.

  • "Perfect location and very quiet."

    Beautiful views from the living room and balcony. Lovely to wake up to the sounds of waves and to watch sun rise over the sea. Was met on arrival by friendly host and shown where to go. Off road parking was useful as on street parking does get busy. Charming double bedroom. Comfortable flat with some homely features but there were a few snagging issues that stop me giving more stars.  The symbols on the oven have worn off, oven was smokey and the large gas hob was temperamental to light.  Information book could have had more information (ie Wi-Fi details, although these were provided on request). No cleaning products or welcome pack. Some aspects looking a little shabby ie. bath, curtains in twin room.

  • "Fantastic view from the living room, and very comfortable."

    Just two of us visited so very spacious but ample room for a family of 4. Easy to reach Exmoor National Park and coastal towns. Area good for walking.

The property

Kittiwake is a first-floor apartment in the coastal town of Minehead and has everything you need for a wonderful stay.

With a balcony with sea views and high ceilings you can enjoy the charm of the interior, and the location is perfect for enjoying the town and beach.

Bring along your family of friends and be greeted by a private driveway leading you to an off-road parking space.

Head up to the first floor and into the entrance hallway; here you can leave your sandy shoes ready to explore.

The open-plan living space is a stylish space that is fitted with contemporary kitchen amenities with an electric oven and gas to prepare home-cooked dishes.

It has a dining table for four, ideal for hosting small dinner parties and a long balcony with furniture to dine alfresco.

Watch the sunset over the horizon and when the evening cools, retire to the sitting area, with a beautiful arch and a plush sofa to binge-watch your shows on the TV.

For a moment of relaxation, venture to the tiled bathroom with the option for a bubble-bath or a wash in the walk-in shower.

There are two bedrooms, a king-size with bedside lamps and white linen bedding and a twin bedroom, which has access to the balcony to admire the coastal views.

A short stroll will lead you to Minehead Beach, where you can sunbathe with a book or build sandcastles with the young ones and to fuel your day there are a great selection of cafes and bars.

This seaside town offers plenty of activities for visitors of all ages, from exploring the historic National Trust sites to splashing around at Splash Waterworld.

Visit Taunton, this historic town is home to quaint parks like Vivary Park and French Weir Park, as well as the Museum of Somerset, where you can learn all about the county's rich history.

The large market town of Bridgewater is also worth a trip with plenty of attractions to keep you busy, like the Walled Gardens of Cannington and Tea Room, Blake Museum, and Somerset Brick and Tile Museum.

For a beautiful setting with much to see and do, choose Kittiwake.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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.
