There are a few changes due to Covid 19. Check in is now from 4pm and check out is 9.30am to allow for extra cleaning and sanitising between guests. We have removed our walking books and maps, reduced our soft furnishings, and adopted a rotation system for bedding and cushions. Cleaning products and hand sanitisers are left in the cottage for guests to use during their stay. We have introduced all these measures as we want to make your stay as safe, comfortable and as stress free as possible

We look forward to welcoming you safely back to Minehead

Visitor Testimonials

We had a lovely weekend away at Anchor Cottage, fantastic location close to everything and across the road from the sea. We particularly found the beds really comfortable with top quality bed linen! Thanks for leaving us some milk and choccy biscuits 😃 xx

Fiona, November 2021

Wonderful location near the harbour. Comfortable beds with good quality bedding. Lots of places to visit by car or bus, within walking distance of town centre and overlooking the seafront. Fully equipped kitchen with milk, tea & Biscuits as a lovely welcome treat. Comfortable Lounge with a Smart TV. Nice to have a downstairs toilet as well as one in the bathroom upstairs. Back garden is up very steep steps so you need to be fit to use it.

Debbie, September 2021

Nice picturesque little cottage with seaside views. Beautiful terrace overlooking the Bristol channel. Close to amenities, the beach and the many Exmoor hikes. Highly recommended.

Corneliu, August 2021

A lovely peaceful place to unwind and relax. The best most comfiest beds we’ve ever slept in.

Views from the bedroom windowseat are lovely and the steep steps up to the patio were worth the climb for the views across the bay !

Very comfy beds and spotless white bedlinen.

This is such a lovely little cottage. I don’t think the photos even do it justice . My husband I had the best week out here!

It has everything you need – fully fitted modern kitchen appliances, crisp white bedlinen, modern bath and shower and a logburning stove.

We love it so much we’ve booked again for next year and recommend it to all our friends.
