The property

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 at this cottage in Watchet 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.

There is also a cosy, well-equipped kitchen, a dining room and a shower room on the ground floor at this Somerset cottage, whilst upstairs are three bedrooms, with one of the doubles 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 an historic National Trust village with cobbled streets lined with cafes 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.
