  • "Lovely terraced property well situated for the town centre and harbour."

    The courtyard at the back of the property is a great sun trap. Everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday you will find in Number 9. Excellent communication by Stephen, the owner.

  • "Spacious, well maintained and equipped clean comfy home from home property."

    Ideally located in middle of small seaside town. Owners seemed friendly and helpful. Locals took time to stop and talk. Things to do both on your doorstep and a short drive away.

  • "A lovely property."

    The owners had thought of everything you could need and made sure it was available to make our stay really comfortable. Situated in the centre of Watchet with local amenities to meet all a visitor could want within easy reach. The surrounding area is beautiful, ideal for long beach walks (with the dog). Would recommend and hopefully love to return.?

    The weather this time was good. Its very quiet and peaceful watchet has everything you want in a small area. The house has everything you need coffee machine, Netflix, and a lovely enclosed garden just right for my little dog. Stephen and Sharon let us in early but our journey did not allow to get there early They left milk and a lovely bottle of wine which was very much appreciated. Shall definitely book again.

    The standard of cleanliness was excellent, with very comfortable beds. The owners had provided a most comprehensive guide to their property and the kitchen had everything we needed. The milk in the fridge and beers were much appreciated on our arrival. We would love to stay again.

  • "The property was even better than expected - the owners have obviously put a great deal of love and energy into equipping and maintaining the house."

    (We have never had a Nespresso machine before; ‘could get hooked!) The house is in a great position - a quiet street but in the heart of the lovely little town and only a few minutes walk from the harbour. We wished we were young enough to take advantage of all the interesting places to visit and the beautiful walks on offer! The only caveat is the step from kitchen to utility area, which both my husband and myself fell over (both over 80!) Could it be marked in some way? Fortunately - no damage was done! Although the owners were unable to meet us until the last day, they sent us some very comprehensive information by email and there were plenty of well- organised instruction leaflets and area guides in the property. A lovely place to stay!

  • "I will never come here again nor recommend it."

    We slept the first night unknowingly on a sheet covered in animal hair. Although the owners changed the sheets, they would not entertain any compensation, which is pretty poor indeed!!

    You are clearly entitled to your comments - and we are pleased to learn you will not want to visit again. Apparently neither you or us have any idea how this problem arose, though it is important to point out that (according to you) you did not notice anything until you brushed the dark blue sheets down in the morning having not noticed anything before you got into bed the night before. We have never had this issue before and ALWAYS check bed sheets - both when making the beds and when they are pressed in place. As, for whatever reason, you did not wish to change the linen yourself, we came down as soon as we could on the Sunday and provided new sheets and also vacuumed the room. This was clearly so important an issue to you that you made no effort to even check what we had done - let alone say thank you. You then made a very unreasonable demand for a refund - something which did not surprise me given your various questions and requests even before your arrival. You were clearly so incensed that you stayed for the duration. A week or so later you started pestering me with phone calls - which Sykes had NOT advised you to do (despite your claim). We wish you well. . Property Owner

    Only downside Double bed creaks and mattresses could do with an upgrade. Happily pay a bit more for a guaranteed good nights sleep. Perhaps Sykes could rate mattresses on their website as there is such a big difference between poor quality and top quality. This accommodation had adequate mattresses but I have been to other holiday lets where it was very poor. I believe Premier Inns have a standard mattress which is very good.

    The cottage was everything we were expecting and more. It was very comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed, we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Ideally located opposite the car park, so handy if you have a car. A short walk through the car park, took you into the main street of Watchet and close to all amenities. Watchet is a lovely friendly place and we enjoyed our visits to Sam's Deli for a morning coffee (also recommend his homemade pies and pasties, they are delicious!).

    Our cottage was equally delightful and extremely well located to the rail station, bus stop , co-op and esplanade. The cottage has been nicely decorated in a nautical theme. The living room was very comfortable. There is a large dining room table. The galley kitchen was well equipped ( although I couldn’t find a colander and grater). The twin beds were comfortable. The upstairs shower was small but it certainly worked well and there was plenty of hot water. There was a nice outdoor sitting area which we accessed the one day it didn’t rain. We appreciated the welcome gift of wine and milk. The owner provided a warm welcome and helped us get settled. Response to all queries was swift. The heater worked well and despite the fact it was June was needed during the cool wet week we spent there. The cottage is well equipped with reading material. It was a very quiet cottage for sleeping and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

  • "The holiday cottage was as expected."

    The upstairs shower room was very small so if you were a large person you may find it difficult. However there was a shower room downstairs. Parking was just across the road and was not a problem.£5 fee per day. The owners left information about the house and a few local things. They also kindly left us milk, tea and coffee which was very much appreciated oh also a bottle of wine. Watchet for us was disappointing having never been there before I was under the impression that it was a small town. There were a few Public Houses a Co Op a very nice Deli for take way sandwiches, a couple of Cafes but not very much else. After 530pm most things were shut and became a ghost town if you have dogs there seems to be some lovely walks but we did not have dogs so in the evenings we just walked around the village. Unfortunately the weather was not good to us so unless we sat in the pub there was nothing for us to do. Sadly we would not return but this is no reflection on the property just the area.

  • "From start to finish the owners were helpful and communicative."

    This is a lovely property that has been beautifully decorated with a nautical theme. There is a small couetyard and plenty of places to take the dog for a walk nearby. The location is excellent, you are easily within walking distance to lots of places for eating out and plenty of pubs. There is also a coop within a few minutes walk. There always seems to be lots going on by the harbour on the esplanade and my daughter joined in with crabbing by the lighthouse one morning. The cottage is also 2 minutes walk from the steam train which allows dogs and they are incredibly friendly. We got an all day rover and would recommend you spend some extra time at Bishops Lydeard where they have two museums. The people there were kind enough to show us inside a first class sleeping compartment from 1897! I would also recommend you drive up to blue anchor for breakfast at The Driftwood and closer to the cottage you have Chives for breakfast, Sam's Deli for lunch and The star for a nice dinner. I would not recommend the fish and chip shop, the chips were actually grey. If you don't mind a drive with some breathtaking views, I recommend you visit Polock Weir and Lynton/Lynmouth. There you will find some lovely places for cream tea and a great market which I think is on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The pay for parking (£25 per week) was a first and wasn’t obvious till we had booked. This is not payed to the owners but the council and is due to the age and design of the street. As a suggestion maybe make this a little clearer in the pre-booking description? The town friendly, quiet with lovely surroundings. Will be back!
