Despite my previous comments, this is still a lovely, comfortable cottage. It is conveniently located near to the A39 but tucked away at the end of the long drive so we were not bothered by road noise. Minehead is lovely and very easy to get to, with everything you need in terms of shopping and facilities. It is a very well-equipped cottage with loRead morevely antique furniture and tastefully decorated. Lots of lovely sofas for lounging on and a very pleasant garden. I would definitely recommend it.

We fully recommend The Firs. We had a wonderful holiday over Christmas and cant recommend this place enough -a real home from home. The owners make sure you have everything you need for your stay and we didnt want to come home. If you are looking for a relaxing break with all your home comforts this is the place for you.
