Porthole Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Minehead, Somerset, England
Porthole Cottage is ideally situated on the edge of North Hill overlooking the sea. The cottage is in a quiet, secluded location yet only few minutes walking distance from the beach and pubs and restaurants as well as the high street shops. It is a great base for walking/cycling on Exmoor or visiting the local attractions such as Dunster Castle and the West Somerset Railway or just relaxing on the sandy beach.
