If you are looking for a place to stay next to the sea, are enthusiastic about steam railways or enjoy walking the coastline or countryside this is the place for you. Beautiful apartment equipped with all you need overlooking the sea and local steam railway with the added bonus of a secluded swimming pool. Lovely.

The high standard of our accommodation, together with the warm welcome of our hosts Nigel and Paula, the wonderful weather and close proximity to many places of interest and beautiful coast and moorland, all combined to make a memorable week's holiday for us in Somerset.

This apartment has everything we needed. It was our second visit. The owners, Paula and Nigel were friendly and helpful and we loved our stay just as much second time around. Have already recommended to several friends and family and we would be happy to return again and again.

Our third visit to Lookout Retreat and, again, nothing disappoints. Extremely comfortable, equipped to a high standard and spotlessly clean, the apartment is a great credit to the owners who, as usual, provided a great welcome. The location is superb and very convenient for walking along the seafront, catching the steam railway or exploring furtherRead more afield. Great views from all windows too. Hide

We had a lovely 4 night break in West Somerset. Location is fabulous - great sea views from all parts of the apartment and within easy reach of Exmoor and other attractions. Apartment is nicely decorated and contains everything you might need. Highly recommend and hope to return soon.

Wonderful location only 100m from the seafront. Very generous hosts, tea, coffee, toilet rolls all included upon arrival, together with sometoiletries. Limited shop in the neighbouring area, however Minehead is only 10 minute drive away and all the supermarkets will deliver to the address.

Our second visit to Lookout Retreat and everything again was great. A very warm welcome from Nigel got our break off to a relaxing start, and we knew we needn't have any worries about comfort or cleanliness - everything was first class. The location is great for touring this lovely area, or leave the car and walk to Dunster or Minehead and use the Read moresteam train to drop you back almost to the door. Nigel and Paula were always on hand with help or advice if needed. We'll be back next year! Hide
