    “The holiday cottage was delightful.”

    Full of character and very clean. Everything well thought out and lots of utensils, crockery, pans etc. The owner was very helpful and we really appreciated the free parking for one car. Watchet was lovely and the people extremely friendly so hope to go there again.

The property

In an endearing location of the quaint harbour town of Watchet is this three-storey terraced cottage, where the rear of the property opens out to relaxing views of Watchet Harbour and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coastline.

Harbour Cottage is perfect for friends and families alike, with a mix of characterful features and contemporary amenities throughout.

Step into a period-style hallway with a plush seating area, featured with exposed stone walling and traditional beams as you enter the main sitting room, a snug space with a log burner where you can settle in for a family film night whilst relaxing on the luxury reclining leather suite.

Prepare heart-warming meals in the amply-equipped kitchen/diner, presenting even more character features and a farmhouse-style aesthetic alongside all the amenities you'll need to enjoy dinner on the sociable dining table.

A traditional stable door takes you out to your own private patio, a real gem in the property, where you'll find amazing views of the sea and over to the marina right in front of your eyes.

As the evening grows darker, venture upstairs to find three stunning bedrooms, comprising two king-size bedrooms, and a master super-king-size benefitting from its own TV, sea views and en-suite shower room!

The rest of the party has access to the lavish bathroom, with the choice of a sumptuous soak in the freestanding bath, or an invigorating wash in the walk-in shower.

Up a turning stairwell with a low beam to the second floor is the fabulous twin room, a fun-filled den for kids to escape to, with its very own table tennis area underneath sloping ceilings!

Step right out into the hustle and bustle of Watchet's Market Street, strolling over to a choice of pubs including to The Bell Inn, a homely pub and restaurant where you can enjoy a selection of local ales and ciders alongside traditional pub grub after a long day.

The coastal village of Watchet boasts colourful amenities, with a choice of shops, cafés and restaurants on your doorstep, as well as an attractive marina, an old port, local history, boats, local musuems and access to the historic Jurassic coastline with a wealth of scenic walking trails where you can meander with an ice cream in hand.

There is also a fish and chip shop and a supermarket just a short stroll away from Harbour Cottage.

Spend a day exploring The West Somerset Steam Railway, travelling through the Vale of Taunton and over to the coastal town of Minehead, a relaxing trip among breath-taking surroundings.

Find adventure at the nearby Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and gorgeous Exmoor National Park, spanning over 267 square miles of rural adventure, offering walking and cycling trails alongside enchanting woodland, hidden valleys, rugged moorlands and sensational views of the enveloping coastline from high cliffs.

Watchet is a delightful, small Somerset harbour town with a maritime history going back over two millennia, where visitors may enjoy the variety of quaint shops on offer and watch the boats in the marina. Watchet attracts railway enthusiasts from all around, as The West Somerset Railway, twenty miles of preserved steam railway, passes through Watchet and continues through stunning scenery to the coastal town of Minehead, approximately nine miles away.

Explore the many pretty coastal and inland villages including Porlock, with its steep hill and pretty winding streets, Dunster with its dramatic castle perched above the historic village and the busy resort of Minehead with its sandy beach, golf course and traditional seaside attractions.
