    • “Excellent facility-home away from home. Everything you want for a comfortable stay. Plenty to do if you are happy to drive or enjoy walks and keep yourself and young family occupied.”

    Mrs Patel, ILFORD, August 2018

    • “It was a lovely place to stay, the views were amazing from the net room - which was perfect for chilling, watching tv or playing cards. It is in the perfect location for exploring the stunning Somerset coast and countryside..”

    Mrs Bartlett, Carterton, June 2018

    • “Fabulous property that was very well appointed with fantastic views over the beach, not sure there‚Äôs much that could be improved on!”

    Mrs Carpenter, Fareham, May 2018

    • “A lovely cottage with nice furnishings the net room and views we're something else Only downside the brick path in back yard when wet VERY slippery needs a good clean”

    Mr Cross, Goole, May 2018

    • “A fantastic holiday cottage set in a great location to visit all the local attractions. The cottage has everything you need, comfortable furnishings, large family bathroom, spacious living space and converted net room to relax and watch the ocean. Our 2 and 5 year old simply loved waking up in the morning, making a cup of tea and strolling down to the beach to fossil hunt and stone skip before breakfast. Watchet village has everything you need... Beach, Harbor, Great pubs (Pebbles Tavern being the favorite), Takeaways, little supermarket and WSR steam train line! Dunster a short drive away, Minehead by steam train within 30 mins, Porlock under an hour... and if you felt adventurous Croyde bay within 1hr 30mins with super Exmoor views en route. We can't wait till we can visit again.”

    Mr Sleeman, Oxted, April 2018

    • “This is our second visit to Anchorage, this time we brought our daughter and grandchildren. Five of us were extremely comfortable in the property and had everything we needed. a real home from home. The net loft was very popular, we would like one at home to put the children in!! Watchet is lovely, friendly people, adequate shops, plenty of cafes and pubs and a beach with fossils! Our favourite haunt was Driftwood cafe in Blue Anchor Bay, lovely staff and great value food especially the breakfasts. Dunster Castle and Tropiquaria were also great hits. Hope to make another return visit sometime.”

    Mrs Stubbs, DERBY, March 2018
