    “We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely property which is in a great location and has superb views.”

    An interesting area to explore with nice local walks. A blackout blind in the main bedroom would help sleeping we think as it was very bright in there, other than that a better tv would help on bad weather days.

The property

This property has 2 bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom, along with a utility room and downstairs WC, and can sleep up to 4 guests.

This superb terraced cottage is one of a row of local red stone cottages, comprising of the former coastguard station built in 1898, overlooking Watchet harbour, on the north Somerset coast.

Tucked away down a private lane, but within an easy few minutes' walk from the village, this Watchet cottage is ideal for couples and families seeking a relaxing holiday by the sea.

The sitting room has wonderful sea views across the harbour and marina, and opens onto the lawned garden, which is a lovely spot to enjoy a cold drink on a sunny day whilst watching the boats come and go.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, with one boasting sea views across the Bristol Channel to Wales.

Take a gentle stroll from this Watchet cottage down to the harbour, where quaint shops can be found, or for the more energetic there are plentiful walks along the coast towards Blue Anchor with its long promenade lined with fishermen.

A short drive to Dunster is well worthwhile, which is a historic National Trust village with cobbled streets lined with cafés and gift shops.

Families staying at this Watchet cottage will love the popular resort of Minehead with golden sandy beaches and plenty of fun on the traditional seafront.

This delightful Watchet cottage will provide a lovely escape.

*Please note* From the end of March 2022 this property will have had a full renovation, the property will have 2 bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom, along with a utility room and downstairs WC, this means from this date the property will sleep 4 guests.

About the location

WATCHET

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.

*Please note* From the end of March 2022 this property will have had a full renovation, the property will have 2 bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom, along with a utility room and downstairs WC, this means from this date the property will sleep 4 guests.
