Westwood description

Holiday home
This three-storey house set in a quiet residential area is just a short stroll from the seafront in the pretty resort town of Minehead. This light, airy semi-detached property has been furnished and equipped to a very high standardand features six bedrooms - two with en-suite facilities - a spacious living room and a dining room with gas fire. Outside there is a pretty garden and off road parking for four cars. This property is located on the striking North Somerset Coast, and is excellently placed for all local amenities and activities.

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.

6 bedroom property could mean 12 people. Dinning table only sits 6. Another in kitchen6. Not enough dishes. Varied selection of plates. Kitchen not user friendly. Dishwaher away from siink. Kettle nowhere neer tap. A little odd. 3 bathrooms on first floor. Would have been more practicle for one on ground floor and aldo top floor. Needed bath towels. garden furniture horrendous. Old tatty not sufficient.

The general appearance and facilities of the cottage were excellent, and could not have asked for better. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery, pans and furniture etc. All the rooms were very spacious.

Thank you for letting us use Westwood for a week. Nine of us plus the dog were very comfortable there. The rooms were big and airy, there was plenty of space for everyone and that lovely big garden was perfect for eating, playing and just soaking up the sun. We were only a short walk from the town and the beach but even when it rained the kids were thrilled to find unfamiliar games in the cupboard to keep them occupied.
Mrs Stewart-Scott

The cottage was very good for access to all amenities. The cottage was homely and comfortable with very thoughtful welcoming touches from the owners e.g. tea/coffee/sugar/milk/biscuits/fruit bowl.
