    Population

    Minehead’s population had reached 12,000 at the time of the 2011 census.

    Transport

    1 hour from the M5, the main route to Minehead is particularly stunning but not fast. With scarce areas of dual carriageway this isn’t a place drivers rush to, but with such great scenery there really is no hurry. Minehead currently doesn’t have a mainline train station (although there is a campaign to restore a former line)

    6 Quirky Facts About Minehead

    1. Mother Leakey
      In 1634 a local ghost known as ‘Mother Leakey’ was believed to be responsible for “whistling up” storms that sank local boats and ships. The ghostly tales were taken so seriously that the Bishop of Bath and Wells was sent to investigate.
    2. Horseplay
      On May Day a hobby horse (or at least locals dressed as a hobby horse) canters though the town collecting money from people it meets on the way. The tradition is believed to date back to 1830 and the money is donated to local charities.
    3. Their Heads
      A number of famous faces to have lived in Minehead. Arthur C Clarke (author) was born in the town, Stephen Mulhern was a recoat in the Butlins holiday park, Deborah Meaden also worked at Minehead Butlins, Catherine Zeta-Jones won a talent contest there when she was a child and Status Quo met in the camp in 1967, they reportedly consider the resort their ‘spiritual home’.
    4. Happy Campers
      The town’s most famous site has seen huge stars in it’s time and welcomed millions of visitors to the area. Opened in 1962, the original Butlins site cost £2,000,000 to build. It has produced a number of stars (even Armishaws’ very own Marketing Manager performed in the theatre there), has an annual Madness weekend as well as having hosted the World’s Strongest Man and professional darts tournaments.
    5. Walkies
      Considered to be the ‘Gateway to Exmoor’ the town marks the start of the 630-mile long South West Coast Path (a National Trail) which was first devised in 1892. From Minehead the trail skirts the coast of North Devon, around Cornwall, South Devon and ends in Poole, Dorset.
    6. Port Life
      Although the town is mostly associated with holidays, it was once an important trading port bringing goods from the West Indies and exporting local wines, cider and even Somerset’s Cheddar cheese.

    About Minehead

    About Minehead

    While today Minehead is a well-loved holiday resort, it was once an important trading port. It has a well-kept high street with a number of national stores, good supermarkets and a fine selection of independent traders. There are several parks and gardens, a bowling club and a theatre.

    Leisure

    Loved by holiday makers, there is certainly no shortage of things to do. The town has a leisure centre, a huge selection of restaurants, and miles of golden sand. Nearby Dunster Castle is a popular spot to visit and there’s also a heritage railway. The small port is still operational with pleasure craft and marine tours. However the coastline is the star of the show and the town marks the start of the South West Coast Path giving access to Exmoor. Day passes are available for the Butlin’s resort with a huge variety of activities from swimming to rock climbing.

    Transport

    If you’re walking Minehead is superb, if you’re in a hurry, not so much. While the routes to and from the town are incredibly picturesque, they are not fast. It takes approximately 1 hour to reach the M5. There is a groundswell of local action to reopen a former rail route but at present the town doesn’t have a train station.
