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

Fabulous little cottage in prime location!
Super clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped cottage in a prime location- all you need in walking distance. Super close to pretty harbour and playarea and woodland walk close by. Ten minute walk to main beach area along lovely, pleasant promenade. Would definitely recommend and great base and location second to none.
Lovely cottage in a great location. Well equipped with everything you could need. Minehead is a great location with lots of lovely walks and plenty to do
Excellent location and property standard but lots of steps to negotiate.
Overall the property was of an excellent standard. Clean and well maintained with good specification. The location was perfect and although it doesn't have private parking space, parking very close wasn't an issue while we were there. The only negatives for us were that there were lots of steps in the property and as the interior was a little dark, they were something of a trip hazard. Also, the living room has the bedroom of the adjoining property over it and while we were there, the noise from this was an issue. Having said that, the property is excellent value for money and a very clean and comfortable holiday home.
