The resort is just a stone’s throw from a mile-long sandy beach and nestled at the foot of the Exmoor National Park’s Quantock Hills. The West Somerset Railway can be picked up in Minehead for a nostalgic Steam journey back through time. Minehead is also the perfect base to discover Dunster Castle or Lynton & Lynmouth.
