Minehead is right on the edge of the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Our apartments are right opposite the West Somerset Railway train station and offer views overlooking the sea. It's just a five minute walk into the town center and a ten minute walk to Butlins. Morrisons, Tesco & Lidl are all within walking distance.

Minehead Lifeboat Station
Minehead Lifeboat Station is just a ten minute walk from the apartments. You can take a look around the lifeboat house, see the Atlantic & D-Class life boats and if you're really lucky you may see them taking them out down the stony beach with the all-weather tractor. There is also a small RNLI gift shop which is manned by volunteers in the local community.
Exmoor National Park
Exmoor National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty and we're lucky enough to be right on the edge of it! It boasts some of the most beautiful terrain in the country and is also the UK's only night sky reserve which means the views of the stars at night is second to none.
West Somerset Heritage Railway
The West Somerset Railway stretches from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead. It operates both vintage steam engines and diesel services. The station is just across the road from the apartments and tickets can be purchased on the day at the station.
