The stylish kitchen is cleverly fitted with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine, perfect for cooking a lazy breakfast in bed, or a light supper. From here enter the pretty double bedroom with TV. Sleep tight with your faces glowing from a day in the salty sea air, or a brisk countryside walk.

The Lodge is more or less as you see on the net, its not huge but large enough for two. The place is quiet and you can do your own thing with the owner close by if you need them. It's only just off the main Minehead road and Watchet is about 10 mins away, Minehead is about 20 mins where there is a Tesco.

This lodge is fantastic! Tony and Carol had literally thought of everything - I brought a lot of household items I didnt even need to use as we were well equipped! The grounds are beautiful and the horses a lovely extra. The only negative is you can sometimes hear the road noise at quiet times, but theres nothing that can be done about that really!Read more We had a wonderful first family holiday! Thank you! Hide
