    “Lovely comfy bungalow with everything one could need , the only drawback was the Central Heating .”

    OK to go off at 10.30. am and electric fire for cold days wh fire ich obviously did not heat the rest of bungalow. However the Central Heating would not come back on at programmed time of 4.45. pm unless the fire wasturned off at 4pm and the lounge had gone cold because of the thermostat in lounge and no manual over ride . This meant if you stayed in you were very cold.....or had tro stay in lounge with doors closed.. Very dissapointed as the weather was bad.

    Thank you for your feedback. There would have been no problem with the central heating and advise all guests to contact the caretaker or property owners. They could have had it on all day. There is an override and the heating instructions have been altered to make that clear. With regard to other issues over the last 12 months: The bump at the entrance to the driveway has been lowered and the double bed has a new mattress. Apologies that the weather was not better for your stay. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Thornby, a light and airy bungalow, looks out towards the glistening Blue Anchor Bay in the West Somerset village of Blue Anchor.

The West Somerset Railway is close to the property with the Blue Anchor railway station being only 200 meters from the property, and trains can be seen as they go round the bay.

It's comfortable accommodation and superb location for outdoor opportunities make it a fine base for couples, families and friends to enjoy together.

First to greet you upon entering the property is the inviting sitting room; snug leather sofas, a warming electric fire and a Freeview TV help to make this the perfect relaxing spot after the sun goes down.

Both bedrooms, a double and a twin, are delightfully finished with superb views beyond the garden and out to sea.

The family bathroom at the property is a sparkling, tiled layout with the choice of a bath and a separate shower cubicle.

Prepare and enjoy your home-cooked meals in the refreshing kitchen/diner set with cream units, a range of useful appliances and a charming dining table.

Adjacent to this is a wonderfully bright conservatory, should you want to admire this idyllic location while eating your dinner.

From here, step out onto the lawned garden, which presents views of breath-taking Exmoor to the left and the sandy beach to the right.

Blue Anchor's café and choice of two friendly pubs are within walking distance, as is the fabulous beach, for those scorching summer days.

Many spectacular attractions lie within easy reach; visit Dunster with its beautiful castle, the quaint harbour town of Watchet and the coastal resort of Minehead which has a golf course, and tickets for Butlins can be bought here, all of which are well worth a day trip.

Avid walkers, cyclists and wildlife spotters can venture through the renowned Exmoor National Park nearby.

Thornby is a splendid retreat in a fine rural location.

About the location

BLUE ANCHOR

Dunster 3 miles; Lynton 9 miles; Weston-Super-Mare 43 miles.

Blue Anchor is a small coastal hamlet in west Somerset, three miles from medieval Dunster. Well known for its alabaster rocks, which are of great geological interest, Blue Anchor is a quiet and peaceful seaside location with a wide beach, plentiful fossils and a promenade three quarters of a mile long with scenic views of Dunster Castle and Minehead Bay beyond. It offers peaceful relaxation, is popular with anglers who fish off the promenade, and is just a short steam train ride on the West Somerset Railway from Minehead. The Blue Anchor station waiting room and booking office have been lovingly restored, using Great Western fittings, many of them original, and the Railway Museum is housed in the former waiting room. Walk along the beach from Blue Anchor to Dunster, enjoying the views across the channel towards Wales, and wander through the medieval streets with the beautiful castle towering above. Inside the castle are fine plasterwork ceilings, while the extensive terraced and landscaped gardens contain many rare shrubs and trees, and offer marvellous views out to sea. Further afield, Minehead has golden sandy beaches, seaside attractions, and plenty of cafes, shops and bistros.
