  • “Well equipped, clean and very cosy cottage well positioned in town, walking distance to all amenities.”

    The limited off road parking may be an issue for some but it wasn't for us. We would happily return.

The property

This spacious semi-detached holiday home is directly opposite the entrance to West Beach and right in the heart of Watchet, a picturesque coastal village in West Somerset.

Ideal for friends or family, this cottage feels welcoming and has a large rear garden which is sunny and enclosed, just perfect for pets and children.

The sitting room not only has sea views but is a lovely place for cosy get togethers, particularly on cooler evenings as there is an open fire.

The well-equipped kitchen boasts a range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

The spacious beamed dining room with its feature stone wall will ensure that family meal times are relaxed and enjoyable.

Also on the ground floor is a utility room plus a cloakroom, always useful to have an extra loo on hand.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master bedroom offering sea views.

The rear garden has a lawn, patio and plenty of space for outdoor play and barbecues with the family.

Greengates is a short stroll to Watchet’s many gift shops, busy harbour and an interesting beach rich in fossils.

Enjoy a steam train from Watchet railway station and enjoy a journey through miles of beautiful countryside, and the nearby medieval village of Dunster boasts a castle, a yarn market and a wealth of listed buildings.

Minehead is a short drive away and has a large beach with all the usual accompanying tourist attractions for families to enjoy.

This cosy cottage just minutes from the harbour, is the perfect base for exploring Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills.

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.
