This quirky and cosy cottage is tucked away down a very quiet lane and just a short walk from the attractive shops, pubs, restaurants and wide sandy beach of the seaside town of Minehead. Court Green Cottage, 17th Century, Grade II listed and attached on one side, features old wooden doors, plenty of original beams and many other historic features. The décor throughout is 'modern vintage', with rich fabrics, throws, crystal chandeliers, all giving a sophisticated yet modern twist creating a most relaxing and charming atmosphere. If you are looking for a hidden retreat which is central to a genteel town's amenities, great scenery, developing a new skill or simply just want to take it easy, then Court Green Cottage and Minehead has something for you. Inspirational and breathtaking landscapes, and a choice of activities from golfing to bowls and windsurfing to walking and horse riding, and plenty of painting opportunities in between if you're an artist or even a budding one, makes Minehead an ideal active break location. The town has always been a firm family favourite, a fantastic family resort, with lots of family friendly attractions that will spark the imagination...In fact there is something a little special here for everyone.

We've left your magic cottage at 9.30 today and there's a little thank you on the kitchen table. We loved our time there, I've never experienced so much love in a holiday place! Your cottage has taken our breath away, what a paradise you have created. Thank you again so much for letting us stay, we enjoyed every minute!
Property exceeded our expectations. Great service from toad hall. Well done.
Overall we were very pleased with the cottage, the location was fantastic, to have a garden was an extra bonus. It was very well stocked, we really appreciated the little things like bin bags and dish washer tablets, which so many cottages don't have and you spend your first day of your holiday doing a weekly shop. We did have small children with us, so we found the large number of nick nacks a little difficult to manage, although I appreciate they make it homely for adults! We had requested a stair gate and travel cot for our toddler, we were very disappointed with the condition of the travel cot, it smelt really musty and the side netting was badly torn (it appeared moth eaten) so we did have to go out and buy another cot on the first day as I wouldn't let me baby sleep in that. That was unfortunate, but overall we were very pleased with the cottage and would definitely return!
<p> Many thanks for your feedback, and we are glad that you had an enjoyable stay. The owner was most aplogetic about the travel cot. Please be reassured that a new travel cot has been purchased. </p>
