Located on the West Somerset Coast, Minehead is a prosperous coastal town and holiday resort situated some 21 miles north west of Taunton.

Situated on the A39 trunk road which is accessed from the M4 Motorway, Minehead provides good road links with Bridgwater (21 miles), Taunton (21 miles), Exeter (33 miles) and Barnstaple (37 miles).

Minehead has an urban area population of 11,699 persons (2001 Census). The population within 6.2 miles of the town centre is 17,343 persons and within 20km 31,276 persons (Focus 1994 estimate). In addition the number of visitors to the town centre is significantly boosted by tourism and can rise to over 35,000 in peak season months.

The property is located on The Avenue. The main retailing pitch in Minehead is centred around The Parade, The Avenue and Friday Street. The Parade is the prime pitch and retailers located here include Boots, Superdrug, W H Smith, Specsavers, Argos and the major banks. Zone A rates here have historically reached circa £33.00 per sq ft.
