    Situated in one of the prettiest and quietest parts of Minehead, The Old Sweet Shop is a quintessential chocolate box cottage which dates from the 17th century. Fondly remembered by its neighbours who visited it as their childhood sweet shop, the cottage offers a delightful combination of original furnishings and modern facilities including a hot tub in the lovely garden. Families are very welcome and the town's beautiful beaches and excellent attractions can be found closeby. The cottage also provides a superb base for walkers or cyclists wishing to explore nearby Exmoor National Park.

Relax in front of the wood burner stove in the sitting room with ancient burn marks on the mantel, charming mullion lead-framed windows with seats and modern entertainment facilities such as a Smart TV with Sky, Netflix and DVD player. A family dining area seating eight people can be found in the kitchen which is well appointed with a cooker, hob, microwave and small appliances. A separate utility room houses the laundry facilities, fridge freezer and other amenities such as a high chair and vacuum player are provided.
