PLACES OF INTEREST TO VISITORS

Minehead Beach on the summer solstice

Minehead, which is protected by the towering North Hill, has a fishing harbour frequented by vintage paddle steamers. Trips to Lundy set off from here. The seafront promenade sweeps around the bay from soft white sand to large round pebbles.
 

Centre of Minehead

The bustling centre of Minehead boasts a vast selection of independent shops, cafes and bakers. The award winning flower displays add to the beauty of Minehead in the summer. Minehead Market, situated next to the West Somerset Steam Railway Station, is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Easter until the end of October. 

Blenheim Gardens in Minehead

Blenheim Gardens, in the centre of Minehead, is a haven of peace and tranquility during weekdays. At weekends in the summer there are a variety of musical concerts held in the bandstand. It is a joy to see people enjoying their picnics in the dappled garden sunshine.

Minehead Station on the West Somerset Railway

The West Somerset Steam Railway, which is one of the longest and prettiest in the country, is a level 2 minute walk from Kenella House. It meanders between the Brendon Hills and the Quantock Hills and its trail of steam is a wonderfully nostalgic sight in the beautiful Somerset countryside.

The South West Coast Path overlooking the Bristol Channel to the South Wales Coast

The South West Coast Path stretches 630 miles from Minehead around the Devon and Cornwall Coast to Poole in Dorset. This path starts 5 minutes level walk from Kenella House on Minehead seafront and is depicted by a statue of two giant hands holding a map.

Gorse and Heather in flower on Exmoor above Minehead

There is an open top bus No X400 which tours Exmoor. The Exmoor National Park is an area of outstanding beauty with its purple heathers and golden gorse, wild red deer and ponies.

Dunster and Castle

Easily accessible by bus or car (or on foot if you feel energetic) is the medieval village of Dunster. This historic village with its interesting architecture and ancient Yarn Market is well worth a visit, as is the magnificent Dunster Castle. 'Dunster by Candlelight' is an experience not to be missed. This is held the first Friday and Saturday in December. The village is alight with candles, the streets are alive with medieval entertainment and the air is full of wonderful aromas of mulled wine and roast chestnuts. Cars are prohibited and you really do step back in time. 

Other pretty National Trust villages worth seeing are Selworthy, Bossington and Allerford. These can all be reached by travelling just a few miles west along the A39. Further west is the quaint coastal village of Porlock and Porlock Weir. Here you can encounter the infamous Porlock Hill. Lynton and Lynmouth are further west as you creep into Devon. These wonderful places are all easily reached from Minehead making it an ideal base to explore and enjoy the whole area.
