View West Wing, a Large Holiday Cottage near Minehead

Minehead

The Somerset seaside town of Minehead lies on the eastern edge of Exmoor, on the Bristol Channel coast. With its harbour, sandy beach and pretty historic centre, it has been a popular destination among holidaymakers for centuries. A stroll away from holiday cottages in Minehead, the town’s vast beach is a glorious place to while away an afternoon swimming, sunbathing or building sandcastles. The beach is backed by a promenade and seawall that you can follow for the length of the bay, with far-reaching sea views. Channel Adventure offers stand-up paddle-boarding and kayaking trips along the coast. Minehead Harbour is at the western end of the bay, where you can watch the comings and goings of fishing boats.
