This cosy cottage forms part of a former vicarage, situated down a quiet private lane next to St Decuman’s church on the outskirts of Watchet, a pretty coastal village in West Somerset.

This Watchet cottage has its own front door and beautiful views towards Exmoor and the Brendon and Quantock Hills, making it an ideal base for friends or families looking to explore the spectacular coastline in this area.

This Watchet holiday home offers accommodation primarily on the first floor, and is particularly suited to couples, with a ground floor en-suite super king-size double bedroom, a first floor super king-size double and a further bedroom with a double bed.

It is an ideal spot in which to relax and unwind on a summer's evening.

Watchet is a charming little coastal village to explore, with its active marina, old port, quaint houses, pubs, restaurants and shops.

Alternatively, explore the many walks on offer near your Somerset holiday cottage, in beautiful countryside and along the interesting coastline, or just sit on the Esplanade with a locally-brewed cider or locally-made ice cream!

The West Somerset Steam Railway line passes through Watchet, heading to the coastal town of Minehead, and visitors are charmed by the relaxed pace of the trains passing through beautiful surroundings.

The trains can be seen passing through the valley below the cottage.

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.
