Enjoy Minehead’s wide sandy beach, an array of cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, and family entertainments. Visit the stunning medieval Exmoor village of Dunster (0.5 mile) with its castle, shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. Nearby are a wealth of beaches, pretty villages, and attractions that include Watchet (8 miles), Porlock (7 miles), and Blue Anchor (4 miles), plus you can get away from it all in the awe-inspiring landscape of Exmoor National Park.

 Enter this character cottage into a light and airy lounge which is made for relaxing in, with a Smart TV, access to your own private garden and comfy seating. Two steps down take you into the well-equipped kitchen/diner which has fabulous views across the lawn of the Manor House and all the facilities you could need to cook a delicious family meal. From here head up the open spindled spiral staircase to the master double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Head outside from the lounge to the private enclosed garden, here you will find a seating area, which is a lovely spot for al fresco dining.

We regret no children or babes in arms, as the property has a spiral staircase.

There is also a shared 2-acre sub-tropical garden, filled with mature palm trees, named exotic plants and shrubs, there are quiet corners with seating, a ‘secret garden’, and giant outdoor chess.The gardens also boast views over the West Somerset Steam Railway and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast.

Enjoy the communal fire pit with giant marshmallows for toasting. Come and feed the goats and sheep in the 2 acre paddock and say hello to the miniature Shetland pony.

Dog walks abound straight from the cottage door and with a dog wash area and towels provided, you know your 4 legged friend will have a fabulous time too.
