Pennycott description

Holiday home
Pennycott is a quaint, old cottage, dating back to the mid-19th century and is located in a quiet residential street in the popular seaside town of Minehead in North Somerset and can sleep eight people. The cottage has a king-size double bedroom, a double bedroom, two twin bedrooms (zip/link, can be super king-size doubles on request), a bathroom, a ground floor basin and WC, a kitchen/diner, a utility room, and two sitting rooms (one with an electric woodburner-effect fire). Outside there is off road parking for one small car in the garage attached to the cottage and an enclosed garden with furniture and a barbecue. With so much to see and do in the area, Pennycott is a wonderful holiday base.

Area
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.

Mr Walsh

This cottage was ideally situated, we did a lot of touring and found it to be a good base. The perfect number of rooms and beds.

We were staying there for a 3 generation family holiday, ages ranging from 73 to 10 months. The house was perfect for our needs, especially welcome was the second small sitting room which became the playroom for the 6 and 8 year old girls. It all worked out so well and having the shops nearby was a bonus.

The cottage was delightful, well equipped and idyllically situated, a mere 20 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes from Dunster Forest. Our daughter and dogs alike had a fabulous time.
