Situated in a tranquil area of the town, near the Millstream, this bright and airy Watchet cottage makes a fantastic holiday home for two. This Watchet cottage features a luxurious king-size double bedroom and bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub after a day exploring Somerset.

About the location

WATCHET

Minehead 9 miles.

Watchet is a delightful, small Somerset harbour village 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 9 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.
