Kittiwake description

Holiday home
Kittiwake is a first floor apartment in a Victorian house near the beach in Minehead in Somerset. The apartment sleeps four people and has a double bedroom, a twin room and a family bathroom. It also has an open plan living area with a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a balcony offering sea views. Outside is off road parking for one car. Just a couple of minutes' walk from the beach and the whole of the town centre's amenities, Kittiwake is a superb holiday home for a traditional break by the sea.

Situated in a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, the popular seaside resort of Minehead is located on the spectacular North Somerset Coast. This welcoming town offers a mile long esplanade as well as an impressive golden beach and pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley. Excellent fishing is also available here and visitors can enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey on the West Somerset Railway from the seafront, or alternatively, take a trip to Blenheim Gardens - winner of numerous awards for its beautiful floral displays and fascinating model village. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park offers great walking routes through its wooded valleys and heather clad moors whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is an excellent attraction for those interested in history.

Somerset offers 3 areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Quantock, Mendip and Blackdown Hills. Lose yourself in the glory of nature, take a ride on a steam train, visit a traditional farmers' market or explore your mystical side at Glastonbury.

Comfortable and clean apartment. Nice view from the balcony. Good local pubs and restaurants within walking distance. A good base to visit the area.

First the positives -Kittiwake is a spacious apartment with some lovely features. It appears to be managed well and was spotlessly clean on our arrival . The pretty flowers and pint of milk in the fridge were much appreciated. It has the benefit of sea views and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and looking out to sea. The apartment looked better internally than the photos in the advert and appears to have recently been redecorated and new leather sofas purchased. Some of the neighbours were a little noisy , particularly late at night and early morning , but this did not escalate into a major problem. However, in our opinion, Minehead as a resort is pretty dire. It was akin to 'the land that time forgot' and for the most part seems to cater for the guests at the Holiday camp when they venture out . Minehead's saving grace is the steam railway, which enabled us to leave this grotty resort without having to drive. We went in to town on our first evening at 6.30pm and a young man and woman, both drunk,were openly fighting in the street - and there were lots of other drunks in the immediate vicinity and outside the bars . The better end of the resort is certainly towards the harbour. We ended up spending most of our holiday in North Devon and just using the apartment as a base to sleep, which was not our original intention. It's a shame really because the apartment was so nice . If it was in a different resort we would have no hesitation in staying there again - however we have no desire to ever visit Minehead again. The apartment deserves the 4 stars we have awarded it but wish to make clear that the rating is for the apartment and most certainly not for this drab, tired resort .

We had such a lovely peaceful stay at Kittiwake. Fabulous to be so near the water too. Kittiwake was very comfortable and just the right size for myself and my two children. We slept really well.

There were stunning sea views and it was in a quiet location. It was all we could wish for in a holiday home.

We like to visit new places as often as possible and our first time in Minehead has definitely been made more enjoyable by this stunning apartment. Beautiful features, modern with some original features very light and airy and best of all a balcony well positioned to enjoy the sea views. Our first night we left the windows open and fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves, also a joy to wake up to! Would recommend Kittiwake to anyone thinking of visiting Minehead

Fantastic apartment, clean, bright and spacious. Very close to shops/pubs etc and overlooking the bay itself. Parking was easy (even in August) and everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kittiwake to friends and family.
