    “We had a wonderful stay at Kittiwake, this really is a lovely, well equipped apartment with a view that exceeds expectations, I could’ve spent the whole week sitting on the balcony watching the sea.”

    Minehead is a quintessentially English seaside town, it’s friendly and has absolutely everything you need, it’s also the perfect base for exploring the area. ...

    Minehead is a quintessentially English seaside town, it’s friendly and has absolutely everything you need, it’s also the perfect base for exploring the area. I have a couple of minor gripes, firstly, the photos of the apartment really need to be updated as the sofas have changed, they show two fabric two seater sofas but in actual fact there is now a leather three seater and an arm chair. Secondly, given the current situation and the uncertainty about pubs and restaurants being opened, we had intended to eat in most nights and whilst the kitchen is really well equipped, it would’ve been nice to have some better quality utensils rather than basic plastic ones that felt very flimsy. Finally, as someone that spends a lot of time travelling for work, I really do appreciate bath sheets rather than bath towels. As I said these are very minor gripes, probably more observations and we will most definitely be booking Kittiwake again, hopefully in the winter when the sea is even more dramatic!

The property

This is a light and bright apartment, within a large Victorian house, overlooking the beach and seafront in the popular Somerset resort town of Minehead.

Located in a quiet street off the esplanade, just a short walk from the beach, the apartment provides a lovely sunny holiday home by the beach with sea views from most rooms.

Set all on the first floor, the open plan living area has doors to the balcony, where guests can sit and gaze out across the stunning view of the bay.

The two bedrooms are light and airy with the master king-size bedroom having a Victorian fireplace and large curved bay window with excellent sea views, plus the twin room has a door opening to a balcony.

Why not stroll along the seafront at Minehead or take a walk along the cliffs, where there are gorgeous views across the Bristol Channel.

Take a visit to the medieval village of Dunster where the castle dominates the skyline, or enjoy a steam train ride along the coast to the little harbour village of Watchet on the West Somerset Railway.

Head inland to the beautiful landscape of the Exmoor National Park with its abundance of deer, birds and gentle rivers bubbling through the valleys; where walkers of all abilities will find trails to discover the superb countryside.

This apartment is in a superb, quiet location with stunning sea views.

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.
