Cottage
Copse Cottage is a small, 2-bedroomed cottage at The Hopcott, Alcombe, on the outskirts of Minehead, Somerset and right on the edge of Exmoor. Renovated in 2017, our charming upside-down cottage looks like a small bungalow from outside, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the lower ground floor. Ideal for couples or families, we offer one double bedroom, and a triple bunk in the second (double lower bunk with single bunk over). We have a travel cot and high chair available, a stair gate and a fire guard for use with our wood burner. We welcome your well-behaved dog (more by arrangement), but please note that Copse Cottage doesn't have a garden. There is a shared lawn garden a short distance away on the development.

About the neighbourhood
Ideally placed for walkers, (the lane outside the cottage leads directly on to Exmoor) and for the plentiful attractions that this beautiful area has to offer, including Dunster, Selworthy, Porlock, Watchet and of course lovely Minehead itself, with its quaint harbour, promenade, steam railway and of course Butlins at the far end of town, with its appeal as a day out for children.
