An unknown quantity, for me Minehead represented B*tlitz and donkey rides..or is that Weston.. anyway booked one night for a bit of walking and tea-room visiting with my other half. Wonderful. House set along an unmade road, surrounded by trees. I expected Scooby-Doo and co to appear. House clean and comfortable. Yes bit dated but location fab. Guy on the... More

Many thanks for staying with us and your kind words! Yes, we're in a very special place, peaceful but only 2 miles to the beach and the lovely town of Minehead. A great spot for 1 night or 15 years!! Hopefully a few more appreciative and special people will visit ussoon and we'll hope to be here for a little... More

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

Many thanks, we're certainly very popular with family get-togethers and all year round, and being away from any traffic, a very safe and cosy place to settle for a while! More

We stayed here in the wet summer just gone, and had a lovely few days on our way down the south west. This place is a little hard to find and not in the town at all, but in a wonderful setting. We arrived too early to be checked in, so stayed in the hostel to avoid the rain...with a... More

Stayed in this hostel at start of holiday- beautiful hostel in a lovely rural setting. Breakfast was great and Andrew the warden does a fab bbq! He really is helpful and will tell you all the best places to go visit and eat. This place was spotlessly clean. highly recommended Hostel.

This is a wonderful place, really quiet, in the middle of the wood, very near to the bridleways, so the perfect place where to stay if you want to explore the Exmoor National Park. Breakfast and dinner are great, and the hostel is very comfortable and clean. The staff is amazing, nice and polite, they really do a marvellous job!... More

YHA Minehead is a real gem with the friendliest staff you could imagine. Set in a beautiful and tranquil surrounding it is the perfect place to be when exploring Exmoor national park. There are nice bridleways for walking just around the corner. (Literally, behind the house.) The breakfast is great, and the place is kept spotless by its friendly warden.

I opted to stay here whilst on a business trip to the area. The hostel is situated in an idyllic location away from the town in a wooded combe, this makes it a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Everyone takes their shoes off at the entrance and wanders around in their socks or slippers, which makes this one of... More

We've been here twice recently. Once with a group and then at Easter with the family. On both occasions the hostel was spotlessly clean and we had a great time escaping the city. We were here to explore Exmoor and though it might be near to Minehead (which actually isn't as bad as you expect!!), walking from the hostel onto... More
