We enjoyed a first rate half term break with our 2 eldest grandchildren.
The cottage was well equipped and safe enough for the kids.
Plenty of books to read and TV/DVD ,plus a few games on site.
The hosts were very amiable and friendly .
The location was ideal for visiting the town centre and the beaches and harbour
Would heartily recommend the cottage .

“Lovely little cottage with a stunning view”

Attractive, clean and fully but cheaply equipped. Neither bed nor sofa were really comfortable. It's a good place to stay, far enough out of town to be quiet, except on weekend evenings when you can hear the thump thump from Butlins. The pleasant walk into town is around 10 minutes down, 15 back: uphill but not really steep. The WiFi was slow even when it worked.

“Beautiful cottage, fantastic location”

We stayed at the beautiful Porthole Cottage for a short break away. It is situated within walking distance to town and the beach, and is only a short drive away from many other stunning places to visit. The cottage views are absolutely gorgeous as is the immaculate cottage itself. We would definitely recommend Porthole Cottage to anyone travelling to Minehead and would like to thank Karin and Jeremy for their warm hospitality.

“Wonderful cottage in wonderful location”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A warm welcome from owners Karin and Jeremy included a cream tea and milk in the fridge. The cottage is charming, well laid out and comfortable. The view of the bay from the sitting room is wonderful but even better is the view of the same from the adjacent terrace, this got full sun in the morning making a perfect breakfast location surrounded by flowers and birdsong. The only downside was a poor wi-fi but this wasn't a big deal for us.

“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!
