Has anyone been? Thinking about sailing there for half term for my boy.Don't fancy leaving boat in that **** harbour either so maybe dump boat in Watchet..Butlins seems to have improved looking at the website and only 200 and something quid for us 3 for 5 days.

Never been but the steam train ride from Watchet to Minehead is great!

use it as a base and it's not bad.

Certainly the West Somerset Railway is a real must. Also the coach trip to Lynmouth, and a quick whizz up the funicular. Deer watching trips also available. Dunster Castle (inspiration for the hymn "all things brighton boatiful")


Give me a PM if you book.

Go anyway, Minehead station is two mins walk from the arcades and thepubs and chippies.
Bes tpub is on the road as you walk towards the harbour.
If you go to the lifeboat station, tell the, "thanks again" from me! (Misty Spirit - previous boat!)

I wouldn't go at Easter again. Everything smells damp after having been shut up for the winter.

Actually, I wouldn't go again!
