It is assured that Sashes, a deceptively spacious Grade II fisherman’s cottage gloriously located in Minehead on the North Somerset coastline, won’t fail to delight its guests for so many reasons. Set opposite the waterside with only a tree lined avenue and the South West Coastal Path separating it from the waters edge, guests will undoubtedly be enchanted by the sea views enjoyed from many of its rooms and terraced garden. The most difficult decision that needs to be made is whether to turn left or right out of the front door and head along the town’s mile long level esplanade following the beautiful sandy coastline. The cottage itself is full of charm, space and character. It has been tastefully furnished and decorated with a comfortable lounge, lovely kitchen diner which offers all modern amenities and the piece de resistance is the superb master bedroom with a seating area from which to watch the boats coming in and out of the harbour just a few minutes away. Its terraced rear garden boasts a sunny aspect and pretty views over the Bristol Channel and the coast of Wales.
Minehead itself is a bustling seaside resort with plenty of inns and restaurants to satisfy both hunger and thirst, but these excesses can be exercised away by taking a walk along the wonderful beaches or over the beautiful heather clad Exmoor National Park. Lose yourself for a day in the nearby historic village of Dunster, overlooked by its brooding castle, or hitch a nostalgic ride on the West Somerset Steam Railway. For both couples and families alike and at any time of year, there is so much to do with the benefit of a fantastic home from home to welcome you back in the evening.
Front door opens into spacious entrance vestibule with coat and boot cupboard beyond. Three steps down into large lounge with feature fireplace (not in use), two sofas, armchair, smart TV with BT YouView, and outlooks to the front of the cottage. Sizable dining kitchen with table to accommodate six with cosy window seat. Modern kitchen with gas hob, electric built-in oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Family bathroom with bath with hand shower attachment and wash basin (please note there is also a non-operational WC in situ). Utility area with washing machine and tumble drier. Separate cloakroom with wash basin and WC. First floor: Spacious master bedroom with 5ft king bed, window seat and seating area with two tub chairs with views out to sea. Second double bedroom with 4ft 6inch bed, chest of drawers, window seat and views out to sea. Twin bedroom with two 3ft single beds and chest of drawers. En suite bathroom with bath with hand held shower attachment, towel rail, wash basin and WC.
Private patio area with bistro table and chairs directly outside the kitchen window, ideal for an alfresco breakfast or coffee. Steps lead up to an enclosed terraced garden with three levels. Terrace one and two are paved and furnished with bistro tables and chairs. The top terrace is partly grassed with a bench seat. Please Note: Due to the nature of the garden, being split over three levels, children must be supervised at all times.

We loved everything about the Sashes, especially that we could bring our little dog with us. She is part of the family. The cottage is in an amazing location with breathtaking views and we would recommend your cottages to everyone.
Excellent stay as always
one or two issues with electrics in hall, no lights 1st night however, after finding what was tripping breaker we managed ok the rest of the week.( seems it was switch in hall way that fed outside porch light & steps) Lovely cottage, great location, dog friendly, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Really sorry about that electrical issue, but glad it didn't spoil your stay. The owner is rectifying it, but thanks for letting us know.

We had a very enjoyable week.
We had a lovely time and the house was wonderful! It had everything we needed, and was comfortable and clean. The location was perfect for us as a family. Thank you.
We had an absolutely fabulous holiday and as we have found in the past the Toad Hall accommodation was first rate. Lovely cottage, great location and we were able to park outside every day which was a bonus with elderly parents. However the cleaners arrived early and were watching our movements which made us feel a little uncomfortable. This has never happened before with previous rentals.
The cottage is in a fabulous position, was very clean, and, if it hadn't been for the poor showering facilities and broken toilet I would have scored the standard of equipment higher. It's a lovely cottage just needs the above doing. Enjoyed our holiday. Lots of little extras provided which we really appreciated.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Sashes. The owner looking to install a power shower and is in the process of obtaining listed building consent and planning permission. We are aware that 1 of the 3 toilets is currently out of order which is noted on the website. We hope to welcome you back to Sashes again soon, hopefully with the addition of a new bathroom complete with a power shower. Best wishes, The Toad Hall Team.

A power shower would be a perfect addition, I know they are looking into this. x

very lovley cottage, well equipped, as it was the first time we had booked a cottage we were not sure what to expect and were surprised at the good standard and did not need to take every thing that we had packed. We would not hesitate to book again with you Thank you
The weather was very cold and the radiators in Bedroom 2 and in the upstairs Bathroom were only getting hot half way up. Not a great problem for us as the others were all working fine, but some people may complain.
Stayed here based upon a recommendation by a friend who has stayed here twice and we were not disappointed. Beautiful cottage inside and out with lots of little extras to make your stay more enjoyable. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this beautifully appointed, spacious and comfortable cottage. Lovely views across the sea.
We have had a fantastic few days. The cottage is beautiful; so comfortable and you really couldn't ask for anything more! We have done a bit of sightseeing which has been superb. The owners artwork fits perfectly with the ambiance of the cottage. Can't wait to return.
The accommodation was beyond our expectation and the only improvement would be the addition of a shower. The owner had abviously thought thoroughly about what the holiday maker would need for a stress free leisurely stay, also a consideration for any pets. I rang Toad Hall offices several times before our stay date and everyone I spoke to was curtious and helpful.
<p>Thank you very much for your kind review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Sashes. The owners do hope to add a power shower in the future and appreciate your feedback.</p> <p>The Toad Hall Team</p>

A lovely cottage that is deceivingly spacious. It was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. It was fully equipped even to fleeces for the dog to snooze on! Picturesque views of beach from front of building and close to shops and restaurants. Will definitely be booking Sashes again.
