This cosy mid-terrace period cottage is in the heart of Watchet close to the West Somerset Steam Railway, harbour and marina.
This well-loved holiday home offers deceptively spacious accommodation set over three floors and is beautifully furnished in a modern style with a partly nautical theme.
The open plan sitting and dining room provides a good space for friends and family to eat together or relax in front of the TV after a day on the beach.
The large fitted galley kitchen has an interesting mosaic tiled floor, is well-equipped to cook for the family and has a useful utility room with breakfast bar, plus ample space for bike storage or for drying boots or wet suits.
On the first floor there are two cosy double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, as well as a cloakroom, however please note that each double bed can only be accessed from one side.
From the first floor landing stairs lead to the second floor with a single room, a twin bedroom with feature exposed roof timbers and a family bathroom.
Outside this lovely cottage, there is a small enclosed courtyard where you can unwind with a cup of coffee whilst planning the next day’s activities.
Take a gentle stroll from the 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 seafront is, again, only a short drive away.

About the location
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.
