Joan Timmins purchased this house in 2007

Why Joan Timmins chose West Somerset

Location, location, location.

I returned to this area after 40 years and found it unchanged and unspoilt. An award-winning stylish property in a unique position.

What makes this house unique

Peace, tranquility, relaxation, excellent local food, superb views. Take a coastal stroll before a fish and chips lunch or a hike through the moores then steaming venison pie dinner - this has to be one of the most relaxing and wholesome places in europe!

A beautiful appointed house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house with a fab outlook across the weir. It had all the mod cons you could want, tastefully decorated large rooms and fabulous large kitchen living area, which suited our group. Made use of the games room, which was a fun extra. The iPod speaker (great sound) came in handy. Kitchen well stocked, had everything we needed. Very minor issue with the kitchen cooking utensils, which could be renewed...oh and an oven mitt. I've already been asked for recommendations, given without hesitation. My group really did have a wonderful time staying at Weighbridge House

Special interest holidays:

We provide special interest holidays; eg yoga and relaxation courses. Garden tours and tips on garden design. Art and painting courses. Cookery with a twist. Well known teachers.

Coast/Beach:

Weighbridge House is next to the beach with uninterrupted views. There are several more beaches within a short distance. Exmoor in all its glory is just behind us, use the steps at the side of Weighbridge to take you to another world. There are several riding schools closeby on the moors.

Travel:

Bristol airport is the nearest airport about 1 hour away. A car would be beneficial if only because of the opportunities to see such a beautiful landscape. We can arrange car hire. As you have a delightful pub, a Michelin star restaurant and an excellent hotel restaurant, plenty of walks on your doorstep. Porlock itself with its variety of shops, delis and restaurants within walking distance (there is a bus). You could manage without a car

Distances:

Dunster and its castle is a lovely place to visit approx 7 miles.

Minehead town approx 6 miles. Railway Stations at Taunton and Minehead. Taxi services from Minehead.

Lynmouth and Lynton wander the streets and be happy. Venicular railway to Lynton approx 5 miles.
