Formerly built in the early 1900s Marston Lodge is currently run as 4* hotel and restaurant. The property now offers comfortable and flexible accommodation whilst retaining much of its original character and charm. Characteristically for a property of this age, the rooms are very well proportioned with excellent ceiling heights and large windows. Being one of the first private residences built on North Hill above Minehead the property enjoys unrivalled panoramic sea views from most of the rooms. The present owner has recently refurnished to high standard including new en-suite facilities, a new gas central heating system, renewed wiring and hot water systems and landscaped the gardens.
The accommodation is particularly well appointed, as illustrated by the floor plan. From a portico entrance and front door guests enter the property into an inner hallway. To one side is the guests lounge with an open fire with cast iron and tiled surround. The guest dining room can seat a number of people and has wonderful views towards the coast. A door from the dining room leads into the snooker room, which at present has a large bay window but has planning permission to replace with doors opening up to the patio. The bar is accessed from the snooker room, which has a door out to the patio area. There is also a cloakroom accessed from the bar. The kitchen is well equipped with fitted cupboards and gas cooker. An adjacent utility/freezer store leads into a cloakroom and the garage and also gives access to the rear garden. Off the kitchen is a good-sized study/office.
Stairs from the main hallway lead to a spacious landing. On the first floor there are six en-suite bedrooms, all recently re-fitted with new bath/shower facilities. Glazed double doors from the landing lead out to a balcony, where wonderful views of the coast are enjoyed. An extra bedroom could be made on the landing incorporating an existing void area to make en-suite facilities.
From the first floor landing stairs lead to the second floor, where there are a further five en-suite bedrooms. The bedrooms on the east side of the property have stunning far reaching views over to the Welsh coastline.
The gardens lie principally to the rear of the property and are a particular feature of this property with extensive panoramic views. Paved pathways link the various borders and terraces.
