Beachside Suites at The Promenade Hotel are ideally situated adjacent to Minehead seafront, just a short level walk, to the town centre and attractions. Just a five minute drive away and you can be in the glorious Exmoor countryside, a walker’s paradise. Wild deer and Exmoor ponies can frequently be seen on nearby North Hill.
Minehead is located where Exmoor National Park meets the sea. It is ideally suited for lovers of both coast and countryside. The mile long expanse of Minehead beach is a delight to behold and just right for seaside fun. Predominately sand, with pebbles near the harbour, it is backed up by a level promenade boasting superb views over the Bristol Channel towards Wales.
South West Coastal Path and Exmoor Coastline
The start of the South West Coastal Path which follows the coast 630 miles to Poole is just a few meters from our door.
In the opposite direction, there is also some beautiful coastline and countryside to explore in Dunster, Watchet, Blue Anchor, Selworthy, Porlock, Wootton Courtney and more. Further afield is the county town of Taunton. Tiverton and even Exeter are all within easy reach.
Boats can be chartered from Minehead harbour for fishing trips and the paddle steamer “The Waverley” also calls here, on the way to Lundy Island, in the Bristol Channel.
Undercover attractions in Minehead include West Somerset Railway, Minehead Eye, Butlins, the 400 seat Regal Theatre and more. Located along The Avenue, and adjacent streets, are an excellent selection of restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs, together with local shops selling everything from buckets and spades to a Friday Farmers’market.
Beachside Suites are ideally situated for a coastal holiday or as a base to explore Exmoor and the many attractions of Somerset and Devon.
