It seems quite difficult to find self catering accomodation in Minehead itself so I was pleased to discover this accomodation was available at short notice.
I suspect the property was originally a Victorian 3 storey terraced house which has been converted into 5 (or 6?) flats.
Located close to town centre and beach, yet quiet.
Clean accomodation with all facilities you'd expect
Free wifi – but it did splutter a bit
Main street has Coop 250 yards plus large Tesco and Morrisons a mile away.
Very close to West Somerset Railway
Lovely outlook over gardens from front window
Use of shared rear garden
Comfortable king sized double bed
Plenty of storage
Welcome pack of tea coffee biscuits and milk supplied
Very helpful owner
Whilst the very limited off road parking appears to be prioritised for less able residents, there is unrestricted free parking outside in the road. During the daytime this road is quite busy with cars coming and going, but after 5pm it gets a lot quieter with plenty of free spaces.
A few minor niggles:
Towels aren't supplied (but tea towels and linen are) unless you pay a premium. Seems unusual nowadays and I'd suggest just increasing prices by £1 a night and including them - this would give a better impression.
The bedroom/sitting room has a single glazed sash window which rattled in high wind until paper wedges deployed!
As this is a converted property sound leaks from neighbouring flats and the TV in the flat below could be clearly heard until 11.30pm.
Bathroom is a little cramped.
Overall I was very pleased with the accomodation and I'd happily return.
Lovely gem of an apartment in minehead with all mod cons plus extras like wi-fi and dvd player (others charge for). Very comfortable and extremely quiet with a lovely back garden you can sit in and have lunch or a cuppa. Overlooks the blenheim gardens which are beautiful and at one end of the street is the seafront and harbour and the other leads to the centre of the town. what more could you ask for. Maurice is a perfect host and very informative about places to visit and to eat. Visited with my twelve year old daughter and she loved it here.
