Minehead is where Exmoor meets the sea. Sitting on the very edge of the National Park, Minehead is ideal for lovers of coast and countryside. Minehead offers traditional seaside enjoyment, with its promenade, long sandy beach and small pebble beach near the harbour which stretches for a mile and gives views across the Bristol Channel towards South Wales. North Hill, where Exmoor National Park begins, dominates the town and its green slopes can be seen from miles around. Minehead is also an area of stunning natural beauty and the starting point of the South West Coastal Path National Trail. This is the nation's longest countryside walking trail, traversing the impressive landscapes leading all the way to Poole in Dorset. You can take a stroll up The Parade to admire the vibrant floral displays and do some shopping or sample the many pubs, cafes and restaurants. For those who want to travel outside the town, but don't fancy walking the entire way, there are strong public transport links. Regular bus services run to Bridgwater, Tiverton and Taunton - where you'll also find a mainline railway station. Minehead railway station itself is the longest heritage railway in Britain and, along with the annual Exmoor Festival, is a great attraction for residents and visitors alike. The town has an array of shops and amenities including three supermarkets, a Post Office, numerous eateries, healthcare services including a hospital, a wide variety of shops, churches of all denominations and many sporting clubs and associations. Traditional village charm is retained in Minehead too, thanks to a weekly farmers market held every Friday. Other attractions in the town include Blenheim Gardens, with its café and putting green, located along the seafront and just outside the main shopping centre.
Beechfield Court is set in the prestigious location of 'The Parks', with easy access and a short level walk to the local facilities and amenities, being less than a quarter of a mile from the town centre.
