    We worked out that the recycling was to go in a blue bag, but there wasn’t a blue bag there. With my mobility problems access to the toilet was difficult due to the steps, especially three times every night. This should have been stated in the advertising as some disabled people just wouldn’t be able to get to the toilet. The bed was very squeaky and the quilt cover fabric was rough, and pillowcases, I had to use a pillow from the other bed. Overall we loved the sheep, the ford and the gorgeous little bridge.

The property

A mile from Minehead and next to a ford below high heather-topped and wooded hills (sea views, fantastic for ramblers), on a tiny lane that meanders down the hill into the hamlet of Bratton, a pretty, detached, thatched cottage.

At the back, a very private, enclosed, tranquil garden (fenced wildlife pond, table/chairs, cottage planting) with plenty of lawn.

From the parking space, path over little bridge to back door and step down to kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker).

Step down to good-sized living/dining room with woodburner and TV/DVD.

Lobby with door to lane.

Two bedrooms - a pretty, good-sized double (5' bed) with curved walls, stained glass windows and limited clothes-hanging space, and a neat single.

Three steps down to smart bathroom (suite with separate shower, step down to bath cosily under the eaves).

Outside loo (washing machine).

A really special, fun and comfortable place to stay at any time of year, particularly for couples or young families.

Bratton: farming hamlet below the A39 Minehead to Porlock road and on the edge of the beautiful Vale of Porlock.

Minehead (Exmoor's seaside resort, sandy beach, harbour, golf, tennis, swimming pool), 1½ miles; Selworthy (pretty National Trust village) and Selworthy Beacon (one of the highest points on Exmoor, terrific views), 2 miles; Porlock, 4.

About the location


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.
