The property

This gorgeous, fully-renovated, end-terrace cottage sits on the end of a picturesque row of red local sandstone cottages, comprising of the former coastguard station built in 1898, with views of Watchet Harbour and Marina, on the West Somerset coast.

Located well back from the main roads, but within a short stroll of the village and its array of amenities, this cottage is perfect for any group looking to relax beside the sea.

The dining room has patio doors out to the sunny garden, and both have spectacular sea views across the harbour.

There is also a homely, well-equipped kitchen with range cooker leading to a family sitting room, and then a dining room, where you can all gather together, discussing the events of the day over dinner.

The twin bedroom, which also enjoys views towards the sea, and the double bedroom both share the family bathroom.

Take a gentle stroll down to the marina and 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 often lined with hopeful fishermen.

A short drive to Dunster is well worthwhile, an historic National Trust village with pretty cobbled streets dotted with quaint cafes and gift shops.

Families staying at this charming coastal cottage will love the popular resort of Minehead with golden sandy beaches and family fun on the traditional seafront.

This delightful Watchet cottage provides a perfect seaside escape for all the family.

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.
