This is a very pretty clean and well placed guest house in the North Devon town of Minehead. It has its own car park accessed from the service road behind. the owners are very welcoming and the rooms are nicely decorated. Wi-Fi reception is good. Breakfast options are varied and extremely well prepare - sourced locally where possible. Highly recommended

It was my mum's 80th birthday and for some reason wished to spend the weekend at Butlins. It was quite a large gathering but due to the high prices and known knowledge of the butlins accommodation we opted to stay off site. We came across this b&b on trip adviser so decided to give it a go. We booked two... More

I have an Aunty who lives nearby and so The Parks is an obvious choice. It's all the little touches like a jar of sweets, flannels, coat hangers, DVDs free WiFi etc that make this guest house such a perfect place to stay. There are plenty of breakfast choices and Bryan and Sarah are friendly hosts so service is with... More

Lovely couple of nights spent with very friendly, welcoming and accommodating hosts Bryan and Sarah. Little bit of a walk down to seafront (therefore uphill at the end of the day) but this suited me fine, even with pushchair! Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon myself!

Sarah and Bryan are great hosts: friendly, knowledgeable about the local area, and they can whip up a fine breakfast! Intent on a bank holiday weekend in Somerset, we set out looking for dog-friendly accommodation and we were pleased to find the Parks Guest House. Its off-street parking and central location made it easy to explore Minehead and the local... More

Good fun to stay at and delicious breakfast :-) Would definitely stay again when in that neck of the woods. Stayed with a friend in a room at the top - up a few stairs so be aware if you have limited mobility but fine if you don't (you can work off your breakfast :-)) Thanks

Our hosts at this guest house were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the family room which was pleasant though nothing fancy. It was nice to have the suite style room. Pretty easy walk into town for food. Minehead isn't too much to look at though it's nice being on the coast!

My son and I had a great 2 night stay here. The room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was great and really set us up for the day. Brian and Sarah are great hosts and took time to chat to all guests and really made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
