A mile from Minehead and next to a ford below high heather-topped and wooded hills (sea views, fantastic for ramblers), on a tiny lane that meanders down the hill into the hamlet of Bratton, is this pretty, detached, thatched cottage. At the back, a very private, enclosed, tranquil garden (fenced wildlife pond, table/chairs, cottage planting) with plenty of lawn.

From the parking space, a path leads over a little bridge to the back door and straight into nicely fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer). Step down to good-sized living/dining room with woodburner and TV/DVD. Lobby with door to lane. Two bedrooms – a very pretty, good-sized double (5' bed) with curved walls and stained glass windows, and a neat single. Two steps down to smart bathroom (suite with separate shower, the bath cosily under the eaves). Outside loo (washing machine). A really special, fun and comfortable place to stay at any time of year and ideal for couples or young families.

The West Country region

Exmoor: exquisite National Park beside the sea: beech trees, sheep, wheeling buzzards and heather hills, from many of which you look over the sea to Wales and its mountains. Below are the most gracefully carved of steep oak-filled valleys where rushing, bouldered little rivers are paddleable and the red deer spend the winters, and perhaps the most dream-like rose-covered cottage villages of them all, where the pace of life is leisurely. At night, marvellously unpolluted skies for stargazing (recently designated an International Dark Sky Reserve).

Porlock Vale is one of the most beautiful farmed bits of England, Dunkery must be ascended, the area of The Chains is wild and wonderful for walking or riding; the Oare valley (Lorna Doone country) is an excellent place to take Granny for a visit to tiny, fascinating Oare church, a cream tea in Malmsmead and a sunset drive afterwards through the Valley of the Rocks to Woody Bay (if you drive well). Minehead, the main town, is good for sandcastles, has a Butlins (and a good golf course and a harbour) and isn't too big. Medieval Dunster is very pretty and has a fine castle (inhabited, National Trust); Dulverton, on the southern edge of the moor and popular with artists, has interesting shops and galleries; Culbone church, one of England's smallest, is worth walking to. Lots of good food pubs in 'hidden' villages, like Luxborough, where the welcome is warm and the atmosphere relaxed.

Minehead

Bratton: tiny farming hamlet below the A39 Minehead to Porlock road and on the edge of the beautiful Vale of Porlock. Minehead (Exmoor's seaside resort, sandy beach, harbour, unobtrusive Butlins, golf, tennis, swimming pool), 1½ miles; Selworthy (pretty Nat. Trust village) and Selworthy Beacon (one of the highest points on Exmoor, terrific views), 2 miles; Porlock, 4.
