Minehead, Somerset, England
Copse Cottage is a small, 2-bedroomed cottage at The Hopcott, Alcombe, on the outskirts of Minehead, Somerset and right on the edge of Exmoor.

Recently renovated, our charming upside-down cottage looks like a small bungalow from outside, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the lower ground floor. Ideal for couples or families, we offer one double bedroom, and a triple bunk in the second (double bed with single bunk over). We have a travel cot and high chair available, a stair gate and a fire guard for use with our wood burner.

We welcome your well-behaved dog (more by arrangement), but please note that Copse Cottage doesn't have a garden. There is a shared lawn garden on the development.

The quiet and private car park for The Hopcott is right outside the cottage, offering plenty of free parking and level access.

About the neighbourhood
Ideally placed for walkers, (the lane outside the cottage leads directly on to Exmoor) and for the plentiful attractions that this beautiful area has to offer, including Dunster, Selworthy, Porlock, Watchet and of course lovely Minehead itself, with its quaint harbour, promenade, steam railway and of course Butlins at the far end of town, with its appeal as a day out for children.
