    “Clean, cosy, comfy, charming cottage, with extra treats for us and for our dog!”

    Beware the narrow winding roads on approach, and the parking space access is a challenge after a long journey. Not a cottage for anyone with dodgy knees, but certainly plenty of character. The area is one well-worth exploring both locally and wider afield.

    Thank you for staying at Step a Side and providing feedback. The entrance to the car parking area is 10ft wide. The road leading to the cottage is the main road from the town, up to North Hill on Exmoor. This road is wide enough for farm vehicles and the large campervans that use the camp site further on. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Enjoying an elevated position in the Somerset town of Minehead, commanding views across the countryside, Step a Side is a traditional, thatched, one-bedroom cottage.

Ideal for a romantic break with your loved one, it's a lovely base for soaking up the sun on the Somerset coast.

Once you have marvelled at the picture-perfect thatched exterior, head inside straight into the charming sitting room, offering a classic cottage style with an electric stove-effect fire set before the sofa and armchair.

Step down into the kitchen/diner where you can enjoy breakfast at the table and rustle up some home-cooked meals when you're not out sampling the delicious restaurants of Minehead.

You can look forward to retiring to the double bedroom at the end of the day, featuring exposed beams and an original decorative fireplace, with the bathroom across the hall hosting a bath with a shower over.

Step a side is just a short walk from the shops and pubs of Minehead, so you can dine out and take an evening stroll on the esplanade before heading back home.

Prepare a picnic and head to Blenheim Gardens, or grab some fish and chips and sit at the harbour as the boats come and go.

From here why not take a boat trip with fishing trips and coastal cruises available to view the beautiful coast from the waters.

Walkers can enjoy exploring the shoreline via the South West Coast Path heading west, and expect to encounter some lovely beaches along the way, including Bossington Beach and Porlock Weir.

The Exmoor National Park is also on your doorstep; visit the highest point above sea level at Dunkery Beacon and fine the remains of a Bronze Age burial ground, as well as sighting some amazing wildlife with ponies and red deer often seen in this area, as well as skylarks and buzzards.

Enjoy the delights of both the coast and countryside of Somerset at Step a Side.

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.
