Northleigh description

Holiday home
Northleigh is a semi-detached cottage in Minehead. The cottage has a double room on the first floor, a second floor 4ft double and a second floor twin with football table. The first floor also has a bathroom and separate WC. Downstairs is a kitchen leading to a dining room, and a sitting room with gas fire. Outside is a terraced garden with patio and furniture, and off road parking for one car. Northleigh makes an idela family base for this wonderful coastal 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.

Northleigh is a beautiful house with elegant windows and high ceilings - deceptively spacious and light. Pretty, quirky decorative touches, very warm and so peacefully quiet.

Lots of space in the house and great for hide and seek! We could take our dog and he had plenty of space within the kitchen and dining room. In a fantastic location within Minehead, nice walk to the town, beach, coastal path and up to St Michaels church and around the lovely little lanes near there. Amazing starry skies on a clear night. Generally we had a great time and the house was lovely. It was very handy to have a card with hints and tips on regarding heating, spare towels, TV workings etc.
