There is superb scenery and walking on the South West Coastal Path or inland on Exmoor. Visit the Victorian villages of Lynmouth and Lynton, famous for the Watersmeet Gorge (NT), Valley of the Rocks and the funicular cliff railway. Enjoy a walk and an ice cream on the promenade at Minehead, which also has a good array of shops. The West Somerset Railway is worth a visit for those with an interest in steam engines. Dunster Castle (NT) with its beautiful terraced gardens, deer park and mill, or Porlock Weir make for an interesting day out.

    Very clean and super comfortable beds - our two Bichons were welcomed everywhere we went - a lovely cottage and we would recommend a stay in this very friendly cottage and friendly part of the country!!!

    An immaculately clean downstairs flat, with spectacular sea views to Minehead from the kitchen and porch, living room, beautiful countryside views as well and farmland. The steam train also runs near and can be watched going back and forth. It made us jump the first night when it came back from a murder mystery tour, but normally it finishes early. Enjoyed the hot tub and views of the Canada geese who were roosting in the next field until the farmer mowed his hay. The dog even had his own badge to wear with the telephone of Merlin house, and his own box with sponge and treats inside.

    Very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was superb. Very clean, plenty of room and really comfortable. We had our Labrador with us and he had his own box of things. The cookies and milk were very much appreciated. The outside space was lovely. Our own private garden plus access to the rest of the garden and a hot tub with views to die for. The location for us with Riley was perfect. You can see the huge beach from the apartment, dog friendly all year. The tide goes out for miles leaving a lovely sandy beach. There is a pub 5 minutes away, very friendly and fabulous food. And a café 3 minutes away, again very friendly and a great breakfast. Both dog friendly. The apartment had a lot of information on the surrounding area for us to explore. We definitely would recommend this apartment and the area. We will be back.

    Overall, a great time away, just what we needed. Location is fantastic, property was warm and comfortable. One draw had been the hot tub, and though its presence was headlined on the website, the fact that it's only available April to Oct was hidden away in the small print, in the bottom section of a screen of 'further information' you have to click into. Thus we missed seeing it and were a bit disappointed not to be able to use it in a mild February.
