The property

Set in the backdrop of the Exmoor National Park, is this impressive five-storey, Grade III listed property, Alcombe House.

Dating back to the 18th-century, this attractive abode is just a stone's throw away from the beach in Minehead, Somerset and welcomes 16 guests to enjoy a coastal escape with loved ones all year round.

When you arrive, you'll find off-road parking for seven cars, along with gardens to the front with outdoor seating to relax in the sunshine.

Inside, a spacious entrance hallway leads you to the large kitchen, fully-equipped for your self-catering needs, as well as a bright and airy dining room with high ceilings, where you can host family dinners.

When it's time to relax, head to the spacious sitting room with plenty of plush seating, a TV, and a bay window bringing in plenty of natural light.

However, if you're looking for more entertainment, retreat to the lower-ground-floor games room with pool table, air hocky and a ping pong table, a thoughtfully appointed hideaway with something for everyone!

Alcombe House boasts eight beautifully presented bedrooms, each with storage space and en-suite bathrooms, with an impressive centre staircase winding from the ground floor up to the third floor.

You'll find double bedrooms on the first and second floor, along with a super-king-size room.

On the third floor are two twin rooms, to suit a range of groups and sleeping arrangements.

If you can tear yourself away from your elegant staycation, Minehead is a superb base for families where you can dine at the likes of Queen's Head Inn, The Wheelhouse Restaurant, and The Old Ship Aground, along with plenty of shops to stock up on essentials if you prefer cooking at home.

Minehead Beach and Seafront, Blenheim Gardens, and the popular seaside resort of Butlins with an abundance of activities to choose from are all nearby.

Avid walkers will be excited by the Exmoor National Park which resides just outside Minehead; embark on a scenic coastal walk, discover historic sites such as the National Trust Dunster Castle and Watermill and The Lighthouse Keepers Cottage, and spot local wildlife in the many woodland and nature reserves.

Further afield, you'll find Tropiquaria Wildlife Park and the historic market towns of Taunton and Bridgwater.

For a memorable trip to Somerset, find everything you need at Alcombe House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £1000.

About the location

MINEHEAD

Taunton 24 miles; Bridgwater 27 miles.

The popular seaside resort of Minehead occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset Coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridlepaths and heather clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
