There are many pretty coastal and inland villages to explore including Porlock with its steep hill and pretty winding streets, Dunster with a dramatic castle perched above the historic village, and the busy resort of Minehead with sandy beach, golf course, and traditional seaside attractions. An excellent choice of holiday destination for rural beauty, dramatic coastline, and splendid walking. 
There are a multitude of rural pursuits including walking, horse riding, fishing, and golf, plus two miles away is the pretty ancient port of Watchet and Blue Anchor Beach. There is also Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, and Co2 Pistol Shooting for larger groups to enjoy (advance bookings only, contact for more information). Four miles away are the village of Dunster, which offers a wealth of historic buildings including an 11th-century National Trust-owned castle. For family fun, a 15-minute drive takes you to Minehead with a delightful seafront, sandy beach, plenty of shops, and a departure station for the West Somerset Railway. A wonderful cottage in a perfect location for exploring the area.
