Reviews

    • “Alice Cottage lacked basic requirements i.e. kitchen hand towel, oven gloves, outside washing line or rotary airer. It would greatly benefit from a deep clean especially the kitchen area even though I left it in a much cleaner condition than I found it. A welcome tray would put it on a par with other Helpful Holiday cottages.”

    Miss Coles, Callington, September 2018

    • “Beautiful cottage in a very good location close to Devon borders so we had best of both the worlds. Our dogs loved the large garden! Our bed was very comfortable. Overall a great stay and we would gladly come again and again!! Couple of minor suggestions, which are not essential but could make a difference to some: 1) It would be nice to have a fence next to the shed in the orchard area so the dogs could still enjoy the orchard area. Our dogs escaped accidentally and we had to chase after them. They are greyhounds. 2) please don’t dilute the washing up liquid, it looks cheap and it’s not economical either. 3) consider having a swing from the big tree in the garden, kids would love it!”

    Dr Nosina, Bedford, August 2018

    • “Our third visit to Alice Cottage. The tidiness of the garden is much improved and being dog escape-proof is very helpful. Excellent dog walking from the cottage. The only adverse comment would be that a tray with some cups, teapot, teabags etc laid out would be nice after a long journey. Most holiday cottages offer this, and more. Miles Garnett”

    • “Lovely cottage, with all that you need for a peaceful holiday. Great garden and the location was brilliant for both short and long walks”

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 Nat. Trust village) and Selworthy Beacon (one of the highest points on Exmoor, terrific views), 2 miles; Porlock, 4.

Regional Information

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.
