Join us on this exciting new holiday to enjoy the dramatic Somerset Coast, Exmoor National Park and much more besides!
Blessed with natural beauty, this region has always been a popular destination. We are delighted to have secured accommodation at the superb 3* Northfield Hotel, set in a quiet residential area of Minehead, just a stone’s throw from the seafront. The Northfield is part of the Providence Hospitality Group which also own the Headlands, Palace and Queens Hotel on the English Riviera – excellent quality hotels.
Set on the edge of Exmoor, Minehead has an attractive town centre with public gardens, plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. The beautiful South West Coast Path starts in the town, so plenty of walking opportunities or you can let the train take the strain – the excellent West Somerset Railway Heritage line departs from the town.
Lovely destination with some great excursion opportunities.
Departing your local pick-up point in the morning (approx. 8.30 to 9.30am), we travel to the Somerset coast stopping for lunch on route and arriving at the hotel mid afternoon with time to relax in the hotel before dinner. Plenty of lovely countryside on the way.
DAYS 2 to 4
During our stay in Minehead we have some great excursions –
• A memorable day out as we are joined by our local guide for a day out exploring the North Devon coast and the beautiful landscape of Exmoor National Park. So much to see with various stops during the day as we learn of the remarkable history of the area.
• Short excursion along the coast to visit the town of Watchet which has a charming harbour and some nice pubs and cafes.
• Great excursion to Taunton. This County Town is steeped in history - a centre for Arts and Culture, it has shops, cafes, restaurants and some lovely riverside walks.
We head home with an extended lunch stop on the way. Arriving back in the local area around 3.30/4.30pm.
