A good sized cottage well equipped that suited our needs. It rained most of the time so we never got the chance to sit in the garden area but we were very happy that it was a very suitable area, well enclosed to keep our dogs safe.

Quiet location, lovely walks a short drive away. Cottage well equipped. Everything you need available in Minehead. Garden dog friendly. Turning out of the property onto the main road can be tricky.

Thoroughly enjoyed this accommodation, very cosy and perfect location. Ideal for your four legged friends as at the top of a driveway so no passing cars. Would definitely go back.

The best cottage we've ever stayed in! That is saying something as we've enjoyed some super holiday accommodation in the last 20 years or so. Spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable, The Firs provided great value for money and a home from home experience for my sister, wife, our 3 dogs and I. It is also located conveniently to explore the treRead moreasures of West Somerset and North Devon. We're otherwise engaged next year but we very much hope to return in 2021. Hide

Despite my previous comments, this is still a lovely, comfortable cottage. It is conveniently located near to the A39 but tucked away at the end of the long drive so we were not bothered by road noise. Minehead is lovely and very easy to get to, with everything you need in terms of shopping and facilities. It is a very well-equipped cottage with loRead morevely antique furniture and tastefully decorated. Lots of lovely sofas for lounging on and a very pleasant garden. I would definitely recommend it.

We fully recommend The Firs. We had a wonderful holiday over Christmas and cant recommend this place enough -a real home from home. The owners make sure you have everything you need for your stay and we didnt want to come home. If you are looking for a relaxing break with all your home comforts this is the place for you.
