Guest Comments

"Our holiday was brilliant. Our hosts Lisa and Frances were great hosts too. We were kept informed about noise from building work and we did not feel it marred our holiday. There was a minor issue with hot water but this was dealt with very quickly. The apartment was very well equipped. You could not wish for anything that was not provided. The Welcome book and very well-stocked leaflets of things to do gave us every conceivable thing we needed. This is something that has been absent in other places. Lisa has thought of everything and the image is professional. The low score for the local amenities is because there is very little to do in the area. However, there were things to do by visiting other places which we did a lot of. The villages of Porlock and Dunster are fairly close and are unique and well worth visiting. Minehead we thought was completely lacking in terms of things to do apart from eat out. Of course these things are out of the control of the owners. There are many restaurants to choose from and we were pleased with most we ate at. We thought the nearest Smugglers Inn and Blue Anchor Pub dinghy and very dated and not worth eating at. ( We went in but did not eat at either for that reason) However, the Luttrells Arms Hotel in Dunster served an excellent menu and The White Horse at Washford. Others we visited were further afield. The apartment was exceptionally clean and has a lovely view of the sea. It is a peaceful location. Looking at the picture from which we booked is realistic and accurate. What we were unaware of was the type of beach pebbly and mud. Again not the owner's fault but we thought that we would be able to swim in the sea and we couldn't. The close proximity of our apartment to another unoccupied one was not a problem, but would have been if occupied because of the small shared balcony would have no privacy of conversation for relaxing outside. We wish Lisa and Frances every success with their plans to upgrade all the facilities. From the view of one that Lisa showed it had a luxury feel that will be second to none in the area. We hope they continue to enjoy many years of successful lettings. They work very hard and deserve it."

"Had a lovely holiday! Blue Anchor Bay is a quiet bay in Somerset, so if you want peace and tranquility, it’s perfect. It’s also an excellent base to explore the area. Our apartment had brilliant sea views as well as views of the countryside. The apartment was well equipped, making it feel like home from home. The hot tub was an added bonus."

Michelle, August 2021

"Very friendly new owners, best location around and facilities are great (including the hot tub!). On our final day, some renovators came in and started editing the other apartments so when we come back it will be even better! I would highly recommend this place to all my friends for a nice escape from reality!"

"Views were amazing and location was so peaceful. The cottage felt homely and was stocked with anything we could possibly need. Owner was friendly and welcoming we felt very relaxed. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to book again."

"Beautiful location and lovely accommodation. This was our second stay here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything needed. It is right by the coast and is great for walking from. The steam railway is there and in non covid times the trains are visible from the apartment.Would highly recommend if you want peace and quiet and a break from the noise of modern life. Life here is simple and tranquil."

"Great time had for my 60th birthday week. You will need a car to get around as there is nothing at blue anchor apart from 1 bar / restaurant. The smugglers which is about a 15 min walk."
