    “Very nice cottage, but it is first holiday cottage after many many years holidaying in cottages that we have not been offered a change of towels or bedding for a 14 night stay the first week was very wet weather nowhere to dry washing our own towels for dog.”

    Dishwasher had rusty drawers and very unstable to pull out to load it.where you park your car should have some stone down has it was very muddy for ours and dogs feet it would not take much to improve that we are yust to countryside as we are farmers and they could easily sort this out,you don’t want muddy feet every time you go out in the car.

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

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.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
Note: Property not suitable for guests with mobility issues.
