Cottage
Copse Cottage is a small, 2-bedroomed cottage at The Hopcott, Alcombe, on the outskirts of Minehead, Somerset and right on the edge of Exmoor. Renovated in 2017, our charming upside-down cottage looks like a small bungalow from outside, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the lower ground floor. Ideal for couples or families, we offer one double bedroom, and single beds in the second (a 3ft and a 2ft 6in). We have a travel cot and high chair available, a stair gate, and a fire guard for use with our wood burner. One small well-behaved adult dog accepted (by arrangement), but please note that Copse Cottage doesn't have a garden. There is a shared lawn garden a short distance away on the development. The quiet and private car park for The Hopcott is right outside the cottage, off...Copse Cottage is a small, 2-bedroomed cottage at The Hopcott, Alcombe, on the outskirts of Minehead, Somerset and right on the edge of Exmoor.

Sweet cottage
Very nice cottage in a border of Minehead close to a beautiful forest ideal for hiking enthusiasts. Minehead centre is at 15min walk. It's quiet, perfect for relaxing holiday.

Lovely
A lovely quiet spot, a short walk into Minehead. Clean, had everything we needed. Parking was safe and very close by. Janet our host was excellent with communication. We ran the West Country 50 mile ultra, the finish was close (very short drive) to the finish line so perfect for that and a bath!!, if that’s why you are looking for accommodation.

Christmas Break
A very sweet two storey cottage, with 'in keeping' furniture, fireside rug and wood burner. Up to date with heating, WIFI, and sattelite. Great walking area for dogs and families, through and around picturesque somerset villages and hamlets. Close to Minehead, Porlock and Dunsford.

Great dog-friendly, quiet comfortable cottage
We stayed a week for the third year in a row with our dog and this year brought my wife's elderly mother along. Great location -- a very short drive into the centre of Minehead, and on the road to Dunster and other attractions. We will be back!

Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, as we and our housekeeper were away we had to use a stand-in housekeeper, who obviously didn't fully understand our requirements, we weren't aware and we have addressed this for the future.

Lovely cozy cottage
I booked this lovely cottage for my elderly mum and myself and it was perfect. The lovely upside down layout of the cottage was so cosy. There was everything you needed inside the cottage for a comfortable stay, with the addition of a log burner. The open plan aspect of the lounge area and kitchen added to the coziness of the property. The location is perfect , just outside Minehead and not far from Porlock or beautiful Dunster . I would definitely recommend this cottage for couples and small families. On return, my mum realised that she had left a jacket at the property, before I had time to contact Janet she had txt me and told me she had got mums jacket and willing posted it back to her . Thank you Janet

Beautiful Little Country Cottage!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Copse Cottage for a weekend away and it was wonderful! Such a homely little cottage, and right on the outskirts of the country. Straight from the front door we went for a walk through the forest, and after only a short drive we visited the beach at Minehead. Also really close to Butlins if you fancied a day trip. Great location - not too far from shops and takeaways (we had a great Indian). For such a cosy cottage there is actually a lot of space. It wouldn’t feel cramped at all with 4 people. It was also very clean and tidy and has lovely cottagey furniture and decor. I would live there if I could! And can’t wait to go back. We’re booked in again for the end of April.

About the neighborhood
Ideally placed for walkers, (the lane outside the cottage leads directly on to Exmoor) and for the plentiful attractions that this beautiful area has to offer, including Dunster, Selworthy, Porlock, Watchet and of course lovely Minehead itself, with its quaint harbour, promenade, steam railway and of course Butlins at the far end of town, with its appeal as a day out for children.
