  • "Hi we all thoughly enjoyed our stay, however, we were very disappointed that we couldn't get to the property until 5 and had to leave by 9 on our last day."

    I understand the owner says there was extra cleaning to be done I find this hard to believe as each bedroom had some kind of rubbish or belongings from the last occupants in and given that we had to empty all of our bins, strip the beds etc we had done half of the cleaners job anyway!

    I am really sorry you were disappointed you had to arrive after 5 and leave by 9 am. This was in line with Covid regulations at the time - not just for the extra cleaning needed but also to leave time between new guests arriving and cleaners leaving, in order to minimise the spread of the virus You were not asked to strip the beds so I am not sure why you understood otherwise . Guests were asked to empty all bins (again because of Covid) but if Guests overlooked this the cleaners should have done it themselves and I apologise that they hadn't. We have never had that complaint before or since and get very high ratings for cleanliness However I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. Property Owner

    The cottage was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and well equipped and everything was thought of by the owners. Had lovely views of the harbour and perfect location for travelling around the area. Great little shops and restaurants right on your doorstep. Perfect place to stay.

  • "We had a lovely week in Harbour Cottage - the photos do not do it justice and the terrace overlooking the channel was just lovely."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room for my family, the grandparents and our dog! Watchet provided a rich seam of activities from the museum just outside to markets on the esplanade, a concert by the local wind band which we thoroughly enjoyed, a ride on the steam train, meals in the West Somerset Hotel and a lovely deli to name just a few.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to send in a review. It is much appreciated and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you back one day Property Owner

The property

In an endearing location of the quaint harbour town of Watchet is this three-storey terraced cottage, where the rear of the property opens out to relaxing views of Watchet Harbour and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coastline.

Harbour Cottage is perfect for friends and families alike, with a mix of characterful features and contemporary amenities throughout.

Step into a period-style hallway with a plush seating area, featured with exposed stone walling and traditional beams as you enter the main sitting room, a snug space with a log burner where you can settle in for a family film night whilst relaxing on the luxury reclining leather suite.

Prepare heart-warming meals in the amply-equipped kitchen/diner, presenting even more character features and a farmhouse-style aesthetic alongside all the amenities you'll need to enjoy dinner on the sociable dining table.

A traditional stable door takes you out to your own private patio, a real gem in the property, where you'll find amazing views of the sea and over to the marina right in front of your eyes.

As the evening grows darker, venture upstairs to find three stunning bedrooms, comprising two king-size bedrooms, and a master super-king-size benefitting from its own TV, sea views and en-suite shower room!

The rest of the party has access to the lavish bathroom, with the choice of a sumptuous soak in the freestanding bath, or an invigorating wash in the walk-in shower.

Up a turning stairwell with a low beam to the second floor is the fabulous twin room, a fun-filled den for kids to escape to, with its very own table tennis area underneath sloping ceilings!

Step right out into the hustle and bustle of Watchet's Market Street, strolling over to a choice of pubs including to The Bell Inn, a homely pub and restaurant where you can enjoy a selection of local ales and ciders alongside traditional pub grub after a long day.

The coastal village of Watchet boasts colourful amenities, with a choice of shops, cafés and restaurants on your doorstep, as well as an attractive marina, an old port, local history, boats, local musuems and access to the historic Jurassic coastline with a wealth of scenic walking trails where you can meander with an ice cream in hand.
