The property

This traditional, detached cottage is situated in the heart of Watchet, on the North Somerset coast.

It is set within a conservation area and, enjoying views over the harbour, this comfortable cottage is in a convenient and beautiful part of the village with easy access to shops and cafés, ideal for families seeking a relaxing holiday by the sea.

The sitting room and separate dining room have beautiful wooden floors, which are both practical and stylish.

The sitting room is ideal all year round, with its woodburner for cosy winter evenings and French doors which lead out into the garden.

The fitted kitchen is well equipped and there is a door leading to the back garden and parking area.

The ground floor double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, which is ideal for those less able to climb stairs and most of the first floor bedrooms have views over the marina, one with a balcony and outdoor furniture.

For extra space and convenience, there is a second sitting room upstairs with a double sofa bed and views out to sea.

Outside this lovely cottage, there is an enclosed garden with a barbecue where you can unwind with a cup of coffee whilst planning the next day’s activities, or dine alfresco.

Take a gentle stroll from this lovely cottage down to the harbour and quaint shops or, for the more energetic, there are plentiful walks along the coastline towards the seaside village of Blue Anchor and its long promenade lined with fishermen.

A short drive to the medieval village of Dunster is certainly worthwhile, with its cobbled streets abundant with cafes and gift shops.

The popular resort of Minehead, with golden sandy beaches and plenty of activities on the traditional sea front is, again, only a short drive away.

This spacious cottage by the marina offers a unique stay for families and friends.

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.
