Marston Lodge is beautifully located on North Hill, in Minehead’s ‘Higher Town’ & is surrounded by charming thatched cottages, impressive views & the imposing St. Michael’s Church.  The start of the South West Coast Path is just a few minutes away & the town & beach can be easily accessed on foot via the many lanes, footpaths & alleyways.  (By car approx. 2 minutes).

North Hill and Exmoor National Park are one of the few remaining ‘tranquil rural areas’ in England, allowing visitors to enjoy peace & relaxation, with NO latent traffic noise & only the peel of church bells, the cry of seagulls, & the swish of the surf to disturb the peace and quiet!  Our local owls often serenade North Hill residents to a peaceful nights’ sleep.

Plan your day with the help of your hosts and, perhaps, try one of their ‘Magical Mystery Tours!’. Benefit from their local knowledge and visit some of the areas’ best kept secrets!
