West Wind, Porlock - Sleeps 6

Cottage in Minehead with kitchen
West Wind in Porlock is situated in a delightful location on the edge of the village and off a private no-through road. It is positioned to take full advantage of the wonderful views over farmland, the marshes and to the coastline. West Wind sleeps up to 6 guest in three bedrooms. West Wind in Porlock was built in the 1930s as a chalet bungalow, it has recently been thoroughly refurbished throughout and now offers holiday accommodation for up to 6 guests across two levels. Sleeps up to 6 guests in three bedrooms One double bedroom (King-size bed) on the first floor, with en-suite bathroom Two further bedrooms on the ground floor, one twin and the other bedroom can be made up as a twin or double (super-king size) Lounge with electric 'wood-burner' Ground floor shower room with spacious walk-in shower, toilet and hand basin Dining room adjoined to the kitchen Kitchen fitted with all new appliances Large decked patio area to the front of the house, complete with large table, chairs and parasol Wonderful views across the marshes to Porlock coastline Walking distance into the village, restaurants, shops, tea rooms, etc. Wifi, heating and electricity included Towels and bed linen provided Arrive from 4 pm Depart by 10 am Dogs are welcome (max 2) upon payment of supplement of £15 per dog. Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture or upstairs or leave them unattended. We suggest this property is not suitable for anyone with limited mobility due to the steps required to access the cottage from the parking area. Children are welcome at West Wind, but please note that the rear garden is steep and there are several steps in the garden so we recommend that children must be supervised. The patio area at the front of the cottage is enclosed, but a very small dog may be able to get through the balustrade. The rear garden is enclosed and a hand rail follows the steps to the side of the cottage and all the way up to the seating area at the top of the garden. Entrance to the property is via a porch with space for shoes, boots and hanging coats, then into the sitting room with two sofas and chair, and realistic 'electric wood burner', which provides heat as well as cosy orange flames. Smart TV and DVD player. There are two downstairs bedrooms off the lounge. The front bedroom (with hill and sea views) has zip-link beds which can be made into a double bed (super-king size) or twin beds, this bedroom will be made up as a twin unless otherwise requested at time of booking. The second ground floor bedroom has twin beds. At the far end of the sitting room is the dining room, again with lovely hill and sea views. The stairs lead from the dining area to the first floor where there is a third double bedroom (King-size bed) with panoramic hill and sea views and an en-suite bathroom, comprising bath, toilet and hand basin. From the Dining Room is the shower room (comprising large walk in shower, toilet and hand basin) and the modern Kitchen which is at the rear of the property and fitted with all new appliances. The external door from the kitchen opens onto a covered area, idea for storing boots, etc. There is a warm utility/boiler room to the rear which is perfect for hanging wet coats. Also in here is the washing machine and a Belfast sink with shower attachment (perfect for washing off small muddy dogs). Outside tap. A travel cot and high chair are stored in the loft space (eaves storage) accessed from a door on the landing. There are books, DVD's and games for all ages. Heating and electricity is included in the price of your accommodation. Wifi is available at no extra cost. The large decked patio directly outside the front door runs the entire length of the property, it is enclosed by balustrading and enjoys superb sweeping views across the fields and marshes to the coastline between Hurlstone point and Porlock Weir. There is ample space for sitting to enjoy a book, plus there is a large table with 6 chairs for dining al fresco too. A gated set of steps lead up the side of the cottage to the rear garden, which climbs to the furthest point of the lawned (steep) garden to the rear, to make the most of the fantastic views over the roof-tops, again towards the coastline. A bench and seating area has been created so you can unwind in this private area. The property is approached from the lane and private car parking area opposite, up a set of garden/paved steps. There is a pedestrian gate at the bottom. From West Wind, it's a short walk into the village. Please note: Children are welcome at West Wind, but please be aware that the rear garden is very steep and there are several flights of steps leading to the top decking area. Gates are in place, but we recommend that all young children must be supervised at all times. There is a private parking bay for up to two cars beside/below the cottage. The lane to the cottage is a private road only shared with a handful of other properties just beyond West Wind, but it's a no-through road, so it's usually very quiet in terms of traffic.
This accommodation has kitchens with fridges. Bathrooms include a shower.
