Take to two wheels, relax on a beach or try a spot of badger watching at YHA Minehead. A country retreat in an attractive house high in Somerset’s Exmoor hills, perfect for a weekend break or family get-together. Enchantingly situated in a woodland hideaway, YHA Minehead has bags of charm. Could fairies live at the bottom of the garden? With grounds as magical as this, we wouldn’t put it past them.
Not only is Minehead a picturesque seaside resort with a cracking sandy beach, it’s also the northern gateway to the National Park, the area’s largest town and the start point of the South West Coast Path (SWCP) – the nation’s longest long-distance walking trail. For activity breaks, the nearby tracks are great for mountain biking and cycling holidays, while walkers can enjoy the South West Coast Path. Don’t miss the medieval village of Dunster - a lovely short walk away.
As National Park’s go, Exmoor is one of the most peaceful. A wander around its heather-clad moorlands, along its dramatic coastline or around its sheltered bays promises the ultimate distraction from life’s day-to-day woes. You could even try our hand-drawn favourite walk - right from the hostel doorstep!
