Description from manager

Pilgrim Corner is a luxurious Tudor period holiday cottage with four en-suite bedrooms, a delightful garden and a large hot tub. This charming thatched cottage is situated at the foot of the Church Steps on North Hill, the historic part of Minehead called 'Higher Town'. The property sleeps up to eight guests. The sitting room at Pilgrim Corner is spacious and airy, and offers a comfortable selection of sofas, armchairs and window seats. The wood-burner can be used to top up the temperature and adds a cosy feel on colder nights. The kitchen includes a rustic wooden table and six chairs for informal dining. From the kitchen a door opens into the boot room with more storage for coats and shoes, and the cleaning cupboard. The dining room overlooks the small terrace garden at the rear of the house, this long, bright room has seating for eight. A high chair is provided, a second can be provided on request. The twin bedroom is situated on the ground floor, it is light and spacious and has generous en-suite shower facilities and an enchanting rural theme.

The three double bedrooms are upstairs; the main bedroom has a grand king-sized bed, antique furniture throughout, and en-suite bathroom. A travel cot can be found in the wardrobe (please bring your own bedding for the cot). A small but perfectly formed double bedroom enjoys good views of the surrounding historic area as well as an elegant mini-shower, and the third double bedroom has a small mirrored vestibule with a large shower leading off it. All bedrooms have a hairdryer.

Appliances and equipment

The kitchen is fully equipped with a range cooker, microwave, dishwasher and larder refrigerator, plus lots of storage. There is a further fridge/freezer in the small lobby off the kitchen where you will also find the washing machine and tumble dryer. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, blender, a variety of cookware and kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. Iron, ironing board and hoover are stored in the boot room.

A large flat-screen TV with Sky, iPlayer facilities and Blu-ray DVD is situated in the sitting room, and wireless broadband is available throughout the property. Other entertainment includes a selection of books, games, jigsaws and puzzles for all ages, an iPod dock and Bluetooth speaker bar, and for the children, a well-stocked toy chest.

Security deposit

A security deposit of £250 is required to book this property to cover the cost of any damage during your stay. All things being well, this security deposit will be returned shortly after your departure providing there is no damage to the property or its contents. You will receive further information about what is covered before arrival. Lucy (the owner) will contact you after your booking to take payment separately for the security deposit.

Other provisions

Some tea, coffee and sugar is provided. There may also be other non-perishable items like salt, pepper, oil and some herbs or spices available.

Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and surface cleaner will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided per bathroom.


From the flagstone terrace with a large table and seating for eight, the full extent of the garden is almost hidden. Walk further along the path and the garden gradually reveals itself. If you are very lucky, at this moment you'll hear the clock strike in the nearby St Michael's Church that forms an imposing backdrop to the scene. Passing terraced flower beds you'll go through the rose arch and find yourself in a secret garden with a secluded summerhouse, the hot tub and changing cabin (don't forget to bring your own towels). From the highest point of the garden you can look over rooftops to Exmoor. Please be advised that due to the nature of the buildings and their surroundings, we don't allow barbeques.


There is ample free roadside parking available a short walk from the front door (approx 50 yards). Parking is not permitted outside the cottage. However, you may load and unload your car outside the house for short periods of time.


Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement for a supplement of £30 per dog (maximum of 2). Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture and do not leave them alone in the property at any time.


Strictly no smoking.
