“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

A wonderful situation with beautiful views. You won't want to be abroad in summer if you're staying at a place like this! A piece of paradise, no less!

“A cosy little cottage set in idyllic surroundings”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Porthole Cottage - a cosy little cottage set in idyllic surroundings complete with everything a home needs - including stunning views over the Channel and Minehead. It served our purpose admirably by providing a few peaceful days away. An area we hadn't visited for many years, Minehead served as a base. The cottage was well furnished and the beds were very comfortable. The patio area was used every morning for breakfast and coffee and also for barbecuing in the evening. Karin and Jeremy were friendly and helpful on arrival and the cream tea left for us was very welcome.

Already looking at dates for 2016!

“Private, pretty and peaceful cottage with stunning views.”

My husband and I (with our 13yr old daughter & 8 yr old son) have just returned home from a week in this lovely cottage. It was perfect for a relaxing break away from the hectic lifes we lead. WiFi kept the kids happy whilst my husband and I relaxed on the decking taking in the stunning views. Then the short walk to the town suited when we felt like a little exercise and a visit to the beach, amusements and shops.

“Lovely little cottage with the most beautiful view”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

There is a patio with a glass front where one can watch the sea. One of the best views that I have seen in this country. We were sad to leave.

“Great Position Lacking the Finish.”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our first time to Minehead and we loved it, and would like to come back again.
The property we stay at was in a great position on the north hill with good open view across the bay. Shower good . This property that needs a higher finish and a bit more care.
list of things which I found annoying:- A very poor TV which often didn't work or made a loud whirling noise. very noisy floor boards in the second bedroom, external entry step just before the front is a hazard. General decorating could be improved looked a bit tied & quite a lot of cob webs. heating just ok.
If the standard of the property was lifted to a very good finish then it would justify the fee as it stands now it was a bit too expensive.
The Owners are very nice & helpful and I would go again if the standards were lifted. It's a great position for walking into town & on to North Moor
