Review | Butlins Minehead - West Lake's Chalet


Hello!
We have recently returned from our second and final (boo!) Butlins Amabassador trip! After an amazing time away last year at the lovely Bognor Regis resort, (review here and here) we were even more excited for this one to come along! We decided to go for one of the brand new Chalet's in Minehead for a 5 night break and booked into a lakeside one too for the gorgeous view! 

Upon arriving, we were directed to the car park to check in which is at the furthest point of the resort, perfect for us to have some peace and quiet away from The Pavillion!

The whole West Lakes Village is so gorgeous, lots of single and double storey chalet's, lots of lawn space for the little ones to run around on, as well as geese and ducks (friendly of course) and little staging areas which host little events for the kids a few times a day! So family friendly and really makes you feel like you're in a home away from home kinda place!


"Built around lakes and landscaped gardens, we’ve created a new chalet village at our Minehead resort in Somerset. Our brand new comfortable and cosy two, three and four-bedroom chalets are as loveable as they always were and, just as in Billy’s day, they’ll promise comfort and privacy in a place of colour and happiness."



Check-in is at 3pm but you are welcome to arrive beforehand and explore the resort! 
We were so excited to see what our chalet was going to look like, we'd seen a few sample images online but wanted to keep it a little surprise for when we arrived! We opened the front door and immediately there is storage for shoes and probably enough hooks for the whole of Minehead to hang their coats! Lots of space and a nice clean and airy feel straight away! The first door ahead of you is the living/kitchen/dining room, with high slanted ceilings, gorgeous modern furniture and finished to such a high standard!
Easily the nicest place i've ever stayed in!




The kitchen is so sleek and modern, with a monochrome colour scheme and everything you need for your holiday too, including a microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery, electric hob and a good sized fridge too! Perfect if you're going self catering or just to store any snacks you bring with you too!

The little dining room is so lovely too, we made sure we ate together on the nights we weren't in the restaurants and at lunch time! Abbie instantly took a shine to the white one and that became HER chair for the whole trip :)





The Chalet had two bedrooms, one double room and one twin, both were bright, light and airy (definitely a theme around the entire chalet), with a gorgeous colour scheme of green, red and blue, with sail boat curtains and quite honestly, THE comfiest beds I have EVER slept on, the pillows are so fluffy and soft and the duvet is snuggly too! 

Both rooms have lots of storage, space to hang your clothes, with shelves, hangers, drawers and even space under the bed too! We asked for bed guards prior to arriving which were all attached when we got there too!


The main bathroom was perfect for the three of us, reasonably sized with everything you need, lots of storage again for all your toiletries and even towels moulded in snails, how sweet! There was a heated towel rail which was a lovely little touch, the only negative for me was there was only really enough hot water for one bath a day, and even then I didn't need to use the cold tap at all, it was the perfect temperature for Abbie!


The view from the Chalet was gorgeous, nothing but grass, trees, the lake and some other chalets, with Geese greeting you every morning, it really is the perfect view first thing when you wake up, we spent quite a bit of time on the veranda just relaxing and enjoying some quiet time in the evenings before bed!

Overall the accommodation was incredible, everything we needed for the perfect week away, everything was clean, light, airy and cosy! We also asked to check out at 11am instead of 10am on the Friday because we wanted Abbie to have a longer sleep as she was poorly which was no problem at all with the staff! We have already been looking at planning a trip again next year, we can't wait to go back!

Keep an eye out for our other Butlins posts, including Food & Dining, Activities & our trip to the stunning beach too!
