About Wendy Steele
I moved to Somerset in 1997 with my young family. Anchor cottage has been my holiday home since 2009 and offers a peaceful and relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of every day life, with all the home from home comforts you will need. My Son Alistair has now joined me in the business, we hope you love Anchor cottage, Minehead and Exmoor as much as we do.
Wendy Steele purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Wendy Steele chose Minehead
Minehead has long been known as 'the gateway to Exmoor' and some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in the West Country is within minutes access by car or on foot from the cottage. Activities to suit all interests are available in and around the town including riding, golf (18 holes, par 69), deep sea angling, steam excursions on the West Somerset Railway and pleasure cruises on the Balmoral and the paddle steamer Waverly from the Quay. The cottage is also on the start of the South West Coastal footpath
What makes this Cottage unique
Every effort has been made to give a 'home fom home' atmosphere and many basics such as tea, coffee, bubble bath, soap, loo rolls, washing up liquid and other cleaning materials are supplied for guests use.

Very enjoyable stay as Anchor Cottage had everything needed to relax in.
Anchor Cottage was very well equipped and very clean. There were good walks along the Coastal Path from outside the door. Also great walks on Exmoor and around Porlock. Historic places to visit, Dunster and Dunster Castle (within 10 minutes by car). Useful supermarkets about 5 minutes by car and a very friendly pub, The Old Ship Aground, less than 5 minutes walk from the Cottage. Would certainly recommend a stay at Anchor Cottage.
Thankyou for your great review, sounds as though you had a busy week exploring. Come back and visit again soon.
Comfortable quayside cottage.
Well equipped and excellently clean cottage. Central heating kept us warm in December. Dark on first entering - in keeping with its origins, but not depressingly so. Parking no problem with the permit. Quay Road busier than we expected but not intrusive. Great position for amenities.
Wonderful cottage in a great location
My friend and I had a wonderful long weekend in this cottage. It has everything you could possibly need and was cosy and comfortable. Will definitely be coming back.
A lovely house with everything we needed. Very quiet nice and close to the town. Perfect for us.
