Enjoy fantastic sea views, coastal walks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty from this delightful first-floor apartment located in the pretty Somerset village of Blue Anchor.

Situated in the quintessential seaside village of Blue Anchor and benefiting from an elevated position from which to enjoy far reaching views of the coast and some truly wonderful sunrises and sunsets. The village hosts a large beach, two pubs, seaside café, convenience store and the historic West Somerset steam railway, a short walk away that runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard. Explore the coastal town of Minehead and visit the pretty villages of Porlock, Lynmouth and Lynton. Dunster with its National Trust castle towering above it is a must see and is just a short drive, as is Exmoor National Park, perfect for those wishing to walk or cycle this awe-inspiring landscape.

This beautiful apartment is set in an elevated position within the grounds of the owner’s large Edwardian home and has been fully refurbished throughout. The entrance to the apartment is via its own front door at the side of the house, leading into the hall with a useful space to hang coats and leave sandy shoes. Continue upstairs where you will find that all rooms with the exception of the bathroom have lovely views over the bay, hills and out to sea. The lounge features an flame effect electric fire, Smart TV and DVD player so you can relax in the evening in front of your favourite programmes. The apartment also boasts a separate dining room, should you decide to eat in. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine. The bedroom has the option of a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin on request) and enjoys views over the garden and out to sea. The bathroom is compact but cleverly thought out, it has a shower over the bath and WC.

Venturing outside there are attractive landscaped gardens. Allocated off road parking for 1 car, can be found at the front of the property.
