  • Mr Partridge

    “No tumble dryer, pretty much essential when staying for more than one week No wi-fi in the main bedroom, a simple extender would cure this.”

    Lack of tv instructions

The property

Hidden in a quiet cul de sac on the edge of Watchet, within an easy walk of the pretty town, marina and the West Somerset steam railway station, a spacious home converted from a barn.

To one side, an enclosed garden with lawn, flower beds and suntrap gravelled area (picnic table, barbecue).

Doniford Beach, 1 mile; Helwell Beach (fossils), 20 minute walk.

Inside, wonderfully light, beautifully presented and welcoming.

From the large hall (small cloakroom with loo, cupboard with washing machine), 2 steps up to kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric range-style cooker/gas hob) with table/chairs seating 8 and door to glazed lean-to.

Large living room with vaulted ceiling, ‘living flame’ gas fire, leather sofas, TV/DVD/PVR, iPod dock and French windows to garden.

Three bedrooms - a pretty double (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with separate shower, bidet), and two smart twins (footboards).

Bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Sleeps maximum of 6 plus 1 baby.

A very lovely hidden gem of a cottage in a great spot for exploring this lively town and interesting Somerset coastline. Watchet: little old town (shops, restaurants, pubs, esplanade, museum, fishing trips), once a harbour where Coleridge is said to have met his ancient mariner, now a marina with pleasure boats.

Station on Britain's longest steam railway between Bishop's Lydeard and Minehead (seaside resort, 6 miles).

Sandy beach at Blue Anchor, 3&

About the location


Minehead 9 miles.

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. There are superb walks along the coast from Watchet, while towards St Audries in the east, the Quantock Hills rise to 1,000 feet above the sea and the Brendon Hills and Exmoor are to the west, within easy reach. 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. This is an excellent choice of holiday destination for rural beauty, dramatic coastline and splendid walking.

Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 6 plus 1 baby.
