Minehead Town

Minehead Sea Front

Beachside Suites are located only a stone’s throw away from Minehead’s sea side where you can enjoy a relaxing day on the mile long beach, stretching from the harbour in the North to Butlins and beyond in the East. There is: swimming, sun bathing and walking. For the more athletic, bring along your kayak or a kite surf board for a bracing time. The views of North Hill and the Exmoor Coast from the sea are quite special!

When walking on the beach, however, bear in mind that Minehead has the second largest tidal range in the world. Do check before setting off!

West Somerset Railway

West Somerset Railway

A five minute walk from Beachside Suites will bring you to the West Somerset Railway (WSR). This is a 22.75-mile (36.6 km) heritage railway line and operates services using both heritage steam and diesel trains. Experience the fun and the excitement of steam – whether watching from the platform, or travelling in style through the magnificent Somerset countryside. There are museums at various stations and lots of opportunities to buy railway memorabilia – Just right for every age group!

Parts of the railway date back to 1862. Closed by British Rail in 1971 and then reopened in 1976. It is currently the longest standard gauge heritage railway in the United Kingdom. Services normally operate over just the 20.5 miles (33.0 km) between Minehead and Bishops Lydeard.
