Cottage rentals in Minehead, Somerset, England
Dominating the town, as it has done for centuries, is North Hill from where Minehead gets its name. It is on this hill that Exmoor National Park begins and ends. A leaflet guide of the 3 mile circular walk around the town which takes in numerous historical landmarks is available either online or from the Tourist Information Office. You can also pick up various free leaflets on local attractions at the Tourist Information Office as well as getting objective advice from helpful staff. If walking is to your liking you should also walk the West Somerset Coast path, maybe as far as Watchet for some stunning views of the coastline.
Wonderful views and more can be enjoyed in some style if you take a trip on the West Somerset Railway. Both steam and classic diesel trains operate from Minehead to Watchet and continue inland through the Quantock Hills to Bishops Lydeard. The company runs special excursions and themed trips as well as scheduled journeys. These include a pie and a pint lunchtime special, a steam and cream special, a fish and chip special and a first class dining experience. Re-enact Murder on the Orient Express and take part in the Murder Mystery special or take the kids to meet Fireman Sam, Peppa Pig or Thomas and friends plus the fat controller. Dates of these excursions are to be found on the West Somerset Railway’s website.
During a cottage holiday in Minehead it’s just a short easy drive in to the naturally beautiful green landscapes of Exmoor. You need only go as far as Minehead’s North Hill to experience a taste of what Exmoor has to offer. Here you’ll catch a glimpse of wild ponies and red deer. But if you prefer something more strenuous then venture deeper onto the moor. Cycling, hiking and horse riding are just some of the activities available in this expanse of moorland, sprinkled with delightful villages, pubs and restaurants.
With so much on offer within the town and in the local area, Minehead could be an excellent place for a family self-catering break or romantic getaway. Whether you need to find a large cottage for a family, a pet-friendly property, a romantic retreat or a holiday log cabin, we trust that you’ll enjoy browsing through the available choices.
