Overview

About the property

Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

Barnes Lodge has been recently refurbished and is adjoining our lovely early Victorian house. It is completely self-contained, with all rooms on the ground floor, and is accessed through the attractive walled garden. It is situated in a quiet part of the town but only a few minutes’ level walk from a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Minehead’s sandy beach and pretty harbour are also within easy walking distance, and the beautiful North Hill area and Exmoor are only a short distance away. The start of the South West Coastal Path is also on our doorstep.

The property has a double bedroom with a king size bed, but can also be configured with full size twin beds, making it ideal for walking companions. There is an en-suite shower room and wc, a kitchen with full cooker, microwave, fridge (with freezer box) and washing machine. The lounge/dining area has a television and DVD player, and is well stocked with books and games. Free WiFi is also available.

Please see our visitors' comments on how much they have enjoyed Barnes Lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has to be one of the best self-catering accommodations we have ever stayed in. An extremely well kitted out lodge with everything we were looking for. Peter and Janet could not have been more welcoming and the package of milk, tea, coffee and home made lemon drizzle cake was a lovely gesture. We have talked about returning when Exmoor is not so boggy. Many thanks to you both for a wonderful mini break. 5/5

Excellent location, good value for money

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable bed, Spacious lounge / dining area. Kitchen had everything we needed, although we ate out each day. Great location for exploring Minehead and the local area, and good places to eat just minutes away. Bathroom is small (and was cold, during our stay in the snow!) but shower is excellent. We were made very welcome.

An amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. We had a long weekend visit in which we could not do much due to the weather, but this homely place made up for it. Peter and Janet are fantastic hosts and made sure we enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

Cosy Lodge Great Position

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely comfortable place to stay for our house hunting trip, right in the centre of Minehead, but in a quiet position. We love our tea breaks and it was great to find a teapot, large mugs (and cake!) and to slump on the huge, comfortable sofa and watch TV, in between house viewings. Peter and Janet were really helpful with local knowledge, over and above the usual holiday information. Thank you.

It is situated in a quiet part of the town but only a few minutes’ level walk from a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Minehead’s sandy beach and pretty harbour are also within easy walking distance, and the beautiful North Hill area and Exmoor are only a short distance away. The start of the South West Coastal Path is also on our doorstep. As well as the sandy beach and attractive harbour there are plenty of other places to visit in the area…

Enjoy a steam train journey on the West Somerset Railway; visit the stunning Dunster Castle and medieval village of Dunster; stroll around the pretty villages of Porlock and Porlock Weir, or relax over afternoon tea at the picturesque thatched village of Selworthy. The well-known Doone Valley is close by, or take a drive along the coast to Lynton and Lynmouth. If you are a walker you are spoilt for choice – Exmoor National Park, The Quantock Hills, Clatworthy Reservoir and the South West Coastal Footpath are all within easy reach.
