Outstanding view, beautiful cottage, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

The perfect setting for our first family holiday. The cottage is so cute and the view is second to none, we could have stared out of that window all day. The owners, Karin and Jeremy, were incredibly welcoming and available for any queries. A real home away from home or even better as our daughters actually slept through the night! Thank you for a beautifully fun and enjoyable week.

Perfect little hide away

  • 5 of 5

A perfect little hide away on a quiet lane with uninterrupted sea views.

We stayed a week in May and wanted somewhere to relax after some local sightseeing. We picked the perfect spot, Porthole Cottage, with its secluded outdoor area overlooking the sea we had peace, quiet and comfort.

The owners were very good and provided everything you'd expect.

Highly recommended

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We hope that you had a good journey home. In case you're interested, we have a new Log cabin which will be available as from October with similar sea views and luxury facilities. All the best, Karin & Jeremy

Nice property close to town and coastal path

  • 3 of 5

Good location, ten minute stroll from town, virtually on the coastal path.

Towels provided, hairdryer, everything you need in the kitchen.

No parking directly outside you have to park on the Main Street (not any distance) could do with a bit of a deep clean, and potentially cold. The heating comes on at set times and no way to turn it on yourself, no controls (you can turn the downstairs radiators up or down when the are on) no radiators upstairs there are two oil filled heaters.

Memorable Minehead Stay

  • 5 of 5

After having to reschedule our dates due to the snowy weather conditions, we were delighted when Karin and Jeremy kindly re-booked us in at the end of March.

The property was charming, cosy and felt like home with the addition of a glorious sea views.

The hosts ensured that we settled were in and were very friendly.

I can thoroughly recommend this little hideaway,

Great cottage with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our pre Christmas break at Porthole Cottage. It is in the perfect location for exploring the area and walking on the moors. The large window frames the amazing view of the bay and makes it hard to move from the window seat! The cottage is really well equipped and Karin and Jeremy made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a great few days!

We were very lucky with the weather starting even the begin of November with some sunshine on the fantastic sun deck with excellent views over the sea. Thanks to the owners Karin and Jeremy!!

The seaside cottage is in a quiet, secluded location yet only minutes walking distance from the beach and pubs and restaurants as well as the high street shops. It is a great base for walking/cycling on Exmoor or visiting the local attractions such as Dunster Castle and the West Somerset Steam Railway or just relaxing on the decking and taking in the ever-changing view of the bay, watching the boats and the hills beyond.
