Greenaleigh Farm enjoys one of the most unique settings possible. It is right on the South West Coast Path passing the headland at Greenaleigh Point to Bossington and Porlock, with a backdrop of National Trust woodland, a panorama of sea views right across to south Wales and a virtually private beach below. Greenaleigh Cottage is tucked next to the old farmhouse and is celebrating a new life following a complete refurbishment which has given en suite facilities to each of the four bedrooms (one is on the ground floor), a brand new kitchen, a wood-burner in the living-room for out-of-season breaks and a wonderful wide terrace where you can soak up the sun in the summer. The cottage is reached along an exciting mile-long track from the outskirts of Minehead through the woodland and with glimpses of the shoreline far below, adding to the adventure of staying here. The track is partially hard surfaced with some unmade stretches but it is mostly level and there are several passing places.
This is the perfect place for families or friends – including the four-legged variety – whatever the time of year, with a path heading down through the fields to the rocky exploring beach (there is sand at low tide) just 500 metres away and with the challenge of this section of the coastal path right on your doorstep. This part of Somerset is where Exmoor National Park meets the sea and so you will have the best of both worlds with the exhilaration of being high up and yet very close to the sea with views from every room, and the wild open spaces of Exmoor to discover if you head inland. Try a route that takes you up the famous Porlock Hill! The views at the top are breathtaking and from there you can head into the heart of Exmoor or continue along the coast towards north Devon via the spectacular scenery of Lorna Doone country and then the coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth. Families will enjoy a trip into Minehead for the fun of a traditional seaside resort and for the long sandy beaches there. You can take a trip on the West Somerset Steam Railway or visit the National Trust castle that towers above medieval Dunster just two miles from Minehead.
