Let us transport you by coach from Cricket St. Thomas to Minehead. You'll arrive in time to catch the 12.15 steam train and take a trip on the country's longest heritage railway. Enjoy a twenty mile scenic journey and views that include the gently rolling Quantock Hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes. Plus there's the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel with views of distant South-Wales, confident church towers, Dunster's imposing castle and Minehead's seaside charm.
