Where is Minehead?


The beautiful seaside town of Minehead, located to the north of Exmoor National Park and neighbouring to the Quantock Hills, marks the starting point for the South West Coast Path National Trail.

The picturesque sandy beach, promenade and harbour are just a few of the elements that together make it a wonderful family town with plenty of places to visit near Minehead. Offering splendid coastal views and a variety of sailing or surfing options, as well as stunning countryside walks and the rolling moorland scenery of Exmoor, Minehead is an attractive place for anyone to explore. There is also the bonus of the superb National Trust Dunster Castle being located nearby, adding further to Minehead's appeal.
