This six bedroom property is ideal for a large group of friends and is able to sleep up to 11 people in the popular seaside resort of Minehead.

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 standard and 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 three cars. This property is located on the striking North Somerset Coast, and is excellently placed for all local amenities and activities.


The photos and description of this house is nothing like the web page describes. There are not 4 bathrooms. There is no down stairs bathroom. The rooms are cluttered with furniture and dog hairs every where. The beds are very uncomfortable and mattresses stained. We all came home a night early suffering with bad backs.The photos on the web site were obviously taken when first put on years ago. Kitchen is very well worn. Heating controls screwed up with bits of wood so we couldn't access the controls.With 2 oaps and 3 young children in the house we would have liked it warm in the evenings , but couldn't change settings. Very cold at night. Garden furniture was a tatty broken plastic table with well worn fold up seats.?700 for 4 nights is very overrated. We booked this on the description and photos on site. Very deceiving and very disappointing . Should not be allowed to deceive people like this.

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.

A lovely spacious house in an ideal location.

Comfort and plenty of space for a big group
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.

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.
