  • "Lovely cottage in prime position."

    We were all comfortable and have left positive comments in visitor book. The only thing that could improve the facilities would be a major project to change the twin bedded room into two spaces, one with two bunk beds and the other a toilet. Queues occasionally occured for the bathroom with four, so a party of six could be a challenge. Having said that, we will re-book at some point, as we had a lovely time.

    Thank you Steve for your feedback, I am glad you all had a lovely time and the queues were not too challenging! I cannot deny your project change made me chuckle, this cottage has been a family escape for more than 25 years. You cannot guess how many variations of 'what can we do' have been drawn up on scraps of paper, including taking the whole back wall out to the decking steps, with a door out onto it from the bathroom! On one occasion the clan of 14 gathered to walk up Dunkery Beacon to see an Eclipse, this had a serious queue issue where age one out! Property Owner

    Sea spray had everything you would need for a lovely stay. Beds are comfy. Nothing to complain about. Loved it.

  • "Very comfortable house ideally situated."

    Beds very comfortable. House had all we needed. Electric fire in lounge was very efficient. We arrived in pouring rain and got soaked looking for the keysafe. It was on the window frame. It would have helped to know that, especially if we'd arrived in the dark. From a car loading/unloading point of view the car park is quite a way from the house. Just two doors up from the house is a layby that was really helpful. The veranda at the back would have been lovely but the weather wasn't good enough to sit and eat outside. Watchet is a pretty, lively and friendly town. The house helped us to have a most enjoyable holiday.

Clean and tidy. With the sea on our door step Molly our lab had a great time in the pool and rock pools. Will be back.

  • "We enjoyed a lovely week at SeaSpray."

    Comfortable and very well equipped. Some nice welcoming touches (the wine was much appreciated after a Friday afternoon on the M5). Lovely little outside space to watch the tide coming in and out. The weather for our week was pretty lousy but the comfy beds and good facilities meant we were able to enjoy our time inside when the rain was pouring. Really appreciated all of the maps and particularly enjoyed the maritime map of the Bristol Channel. Would visit again.

    Thank you Amanda for your lovely review of Seaspray, glad you enjoyed the maps and River Chart, did you spot all the lighthouses? Rob will be chuffed that someone has used it! Property Owner

  • "Good base for a seaside holiday."

    .nice village of watchet and close to other areas..cottage was good for the two of us. I know it sleeps 6 but the lounge is just about big enough for 4 at the most. Everything was caterer for for our week stay. Would be even better if some.more food preparation knives and pots/pans were made available (bit limited). Best view I've ever seen from the bathroom in any holiday home....watching the tide come in and go out in utter privacy. A tumble dryer would have been good so we could wash clothes and dry them. We enjoyed our stay. Thankyou

    Thank you Ahmad for your feedback, happy you enjoyed your stay. We do take on board feedback comments, and the 'sleeps' number is one under continuous discussion! 4 is comfortable, 4 adults + 2 children + chocolate Lab is cosy, 6 adults is do - able but this info is very difficult to convey in a listing! The view is impressive, so glad you appreciated it. Property Owner

    In late June facing roughly North it got sun all day. Watching sunrise (if you are up before 5!) or sunset (not till 10). And any time in between. And convenient for everywhere in charming little Watchet.

  • "Gorgeous cottage in a fabulous location."

    Beds were really comfortable with lovely fresh white bedding. It was so perfect we’ve booked again! Rating 98/100! In the spirit of feedback, the two tiny improvements I’d ask are for a freezer compartment in the fridge, I needed ice in the last few scorching days, gin on the deck wasn’t quite the same without!, also, we couldn’t find recycling instructions-we didn’t want to leave all our bottles etc but couldn’t find the guidance and recycling boxes?

    Thank you Helen for your lovely feedback response to your stay in Watchet, it is rather a special spot! Regarding the fridge and lack of freezer, we have had mixed advice on this one as the icebox door gets broken frequently as well as space being at a premium, but I have added it to the list of must do! The recycling boxes are a mystery, but I will investigate and provide guidance. See you in the Autumn. Property Owner

  • "There were no photographs of the front sitting room when we booked, I did ask if there was a sofa."

    Photographs have since been published & there are 2 very large, (slippery to sit on) leather type sofas & an armchair which take up almost all of the room. It makes the room very cramped & rather uncomfortable, I guess this is because you advertise it as a cottage for 6 but with only one bathroom it would be tight. Very comfortable beds.

    Thank you Marie for your review, it was your query regarding sitting room that brought to our attention the lack of a photo, so thank you! Glad you enjoyed the comfy beds, the view is extraordinary out to sea I hope you were rewarded with an amazing sunset. Property Owner

The property

Nestled along the picturesque Somerset Coast is this idyllic three bedroom character terraced house, Sea Spray, West Street, Watchet.

Sea Spray Cottage is in a small terrace of former fishermens’ or harbour workers’ cottages and is actually adjoining the sea wall.

As a result of this fortunate position it enjoys close proximity to the sea and therefore unparalleled views down the wild coastline, the harbour wall and lighthouse and across to Wales, the sunsets too can be absolutely wonderful.

The cottage has been a haven for family and friends for the past 20 years and, having been recently refurbished, provides comfortable and enjoyable accommodation for 6 people.

All the usual facilities are provided, as mentioned and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The colourful decking area provides the perfect setting for al fresco meals or an evening glass of wine while enjoying the sounds and sights of the tides, the Bristol Channel has the largest tides in Britain.

The property is reached from the street, a very short walk to the centre of Watchet, and private parking is provided.

Take advantage of your fabulous location and explore the local town, Watchet Port, full of maritime history and has a modern Marina watched over by a 150 year old light house and a statue of Coleridge’s Ancient Mariner makes an interesting stroll along the quay.

Museums for learning, not one but two!

The Market House Museum to learn more about the history of the Town, and the Boat Museum has an intriguing collection of local flat bottomed boats and rope making exhibits.

The slipway to West Beach is a few yards from the front door, wander along the wild and scenic coastline famous for fossil hunting, ancient ammonite fossils lying on the shore just waiting to be found, a constant source of pleasure to young and old.

Visit Pebbles Tavern, where you are spoilt for choice, treat yourself to some delicious local cider.

Give yourself a night off from the kitchen, choose an authentic curry at The Spice Merchant, delicious Tapas at The Cats Whisker or more traditional food at The Bell Inn, Watchet will look after you well!

Just a short drive away is the superb Tropiquaria Wildlife Park, where you can meet a plethora of wildlife including reptiles and marine life at the aquarium.

Walkers and cyclists will delight with the choice of paths, from The South West Coast Path, Coleridge Way, Quantock and Brendon Hills as well as the Exmoor National Park.

On the doorstep walking the coast line has extraordinary rock formations with quartz and alabaster running through them, possibly catching sight of the resident Peregrine Falcons.

For a unique way to see the sights, why not hop aboard The West Somerset Railway, choose a Steam Locomotive coach and wagons to travel in.

The West Somerset Railway is the longest heritage steam railway operating from Bishop’s Lydeard at the base of the Quantock Hills to Minehead on The Bristol Channel Coast.

The 20 mile trip with 10 stations recaptures the romantic era of steam rail travel, or peruse the railway and industrial heritage well preserved at each station along the journey.

For memories that will last a lifetime, be sure to choose Sea Spray as your base in Watchet.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
