Grooms Cottage - Dunster, Minehead, Somerset, Exmoor, England - Sleeps 2

Grooms Cottage

Grooms Cottage is a welcoming retreat for two guests located close to Dunster, one of Somerset's most picturesque villages with its beautiful castle. Whether you drive, walk or cycle the one and a half miles, Dunster offers a good choice of pubs, restaurants and shops, beautifully packaged in a picturesque setting.

Affording fantastic views and a lovely sunny aspect, Grooms Cottage is perfect for relaxing or exploring, and guests can enjoy easy access to the coast and many attractions that Exmoor National Park has to offer. The seaside town of Minehead is only four miles away with a good choice of shops and places for a meal out. For a larger selection of shops, the county town of Taunton is under thirty miles away and the cities of Exeter and Bristol are within driving distance for a day trip out.

The surrounding area is a tranquil haven with excellent opportunities for those who enjoy walking, horse riding, cycling or simply relaxing. Rolling heather-clad moorland, wooded valleys, lakes, rivers and the sea all add to the varied landscape and provide opportunities for water lovers and those who enjoy fishing.

Spend your days relaxing on the beach (Dunster beach is the closest), having a leisurely lunch at one of the many traditional inns or soaking up the scenery in a leisurely fashion with a nostalgic ride on the West Somerset Steam Railway. The picturesque Exmoor village of Porlock with its traditional charm is a short car ride away, as is Porlock Weir with its beautiful peaceful harbour. In the opposite direction is the ancient harbour town of Watchet which is well worth a visit.

Whether you want to explore the many attractions of Somerset and Devon or simply unwind in a picturesque setting, Grooms Cottage offers all the right ingredients for a relaxing holiday.
