Many thanks for choosing to stay with us with your friends. The bridleway up to us is indeed a rather muddy and bumpy ride...but hopefully it's all worth the effort in getting to a wonderful house in the woods. Just don't bring the Ferrari next time! All the best, Andrew More

Many thanks for your kind words. I'll pass on your warmth to the others in the team (of which Ken and Maria are volunteers that do an amazing job for the YHA). There's certainly plenty to do all around us without spending too much money or having to drive at all or too far!! All the best, Andrew More

Brilliant stay for a couple of days. Great location, quiet yet close to Porlock, Dunster and the beaches. Friendly and a good kitchen and dining room. Clean and fresh - everyone even takes their shoes off, so take your slippers and feel at home.......

Many thanks for your lovely comments. Yes, we're in a most beautiful spot, far enough away from the thriving town to not hear a thing, yet only 30 minutes walk to the beach. We certainly try very hard to be as clean and tidy as we can be, even during a busy half-term! All the best, Andrew More

We stayed at this hostel at the end of march after 50 mile an hour winds cancelled our camping trip. The hostel is in a beautiful setting off the beaten track (although we had navigation concerns as we were on our way up the track there were lots of signposts to reassure us!). The staff were really friendly and helpful... More

Many thanks for choosing to stay with us...we certainly are off the beaten track in Exmoor, but still only a mile to the shops! We do have a lovely garden for some camping (maybe even some bell tents this summer!?), but when the weather is bad (Easter!), then there's nothing to beat a quiet night relaxing in our lounge with...

Lovely cosy edwardian house , now youth hostel secreted on edge of town at Minehead. Good base for walks or the beach. Set in secluded woods, the kids will love and has deer grazing in gardens at dawn. Well worth a visit to get away from modern life, nice staff, basic clean accomodation that can be hired as family rooms... More

For the 16th year running we have rented a youth hostel for a long weekend for exclusive hire. We have stayed at Minehead on many occasions, and this year we found it to be very comfortable and easy to accommodate our large group of teenagers to 60 year olds. Thank you Andrew, we will be back.

The YHA hostel in Minehead is a very nice and clean hostel with a nice staff. The location provides plenty of opportunities for exploring Exmoor. The nearby town houses the necessary shopping facilities and places to go on a Saturday evening. I absolutely recommend it!

Many thanks for your kind words. Minehead has a lot to offer...some lovely independent shops and cafes (Toucan is a favourite of ours for their homemade food!!). Quiet at night though...most people come for Exmoor's special qualities!! Andrew More

We feel we have found a real gem! The setting is beautiful, the grounds allowed ample space for our children aged 10 - 15 years to run around and have lots of fun. We booked the whole Youth Hostel for the weekend, it held 9 adults and 10 children with ease and felt really cosy and homely. The beds are... More
