Description

This 400 year old cottage is ideally located close to the ancient harbour in the picturesque, coastal town of Watchet.

This 400 year old terraced cottage, overlooking Watchet’s ancient harbour, is an ideal place for your holiday. Perfect for a family or group getaway, Harbour Cottage has plenty of room for all. Located right in the centre of Watchet, the cottage has a delightful, enclosed terrace backing onto the harbour. A great place to sit and witness one of the highest tidal ranges in the world. Watchet has a long history which is evident all around, and just outside the front door of the cottage is the town’s old gaol and museum. There is a good range of shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, and the harbour is a great place to sit on sunny afternoons and enjoy an ice cream. The two beaches are perfect for rock pooling, fossil hunting and are dog friendly all year round. Watchet also benefits from having a railway station connected to the West Somerset Steam Railway. This well-run line offers a great day out for all ages.

Nearby Minehead has a good range of shops and other amenities. Visit Dunster Castle and medieval village, Porlock Weir and the Victorian towns of Lynton and Lynmouth for a great day out. For those who enjoy walking, the famous South West Coast Path starts in Minehead, with the West Somerset Coast Path linking it to Watchet. There is a wealth of spectacular walking on nearby Exmoor, The Quantock and Brendon Hills.

    We really enjoyed staying at this cottage - especially the bedrooms and the sea views from the terrace at the back . Kitchen was super . Master bedroom bathroom was a bit too cramped and hot water in that shower not as good as the shared bedroom. My only " gripe" would be the rubbish arrangements as it happened that we checked out on a Thursday so had to take out practically 2 weeks of other peoples's rubbish from the bins on the terrace - not a pleasant task . Understand that in Watchet unlike in Spain for example public bins are not provided so these collection schedules are necessary

    we had a lovely long weekend at Watchet, staying in this comfortable cottage. The courtyard garden caught the sun beautifully and waking up to the sound of the sea from the Master bedroom was a delight. Watchet itself was friendly and had everything we needed for a relaxing time and the local Pebbles bar was worth a visit and played live music one night. We would happily return and stay again. Highly recommend.

    Harbour Cottage is a lovely cottage superbly located backing onto the harbour in the centre of the quiet town of Watchet. The convenience of local amenities is a real bonus, there is a 5 minute walk to a lovely quiet beach which is spectacular when the tide is out. Parking is via permit (provided) in the car park directly opposite and you can load and unload from thr parking spot directly in front of the front door. There are some lovely (dog-friendly) pubs within metres with the Star being our favourite. The house itself is a tardis, lovely and homely downstairs and extremely spacious upstairs with 3 very comfortable double bedrooms and a large loft with twin beds. All in all it makes for a perfect quiet break, Watchet is a hidden gem and Harbour Cottage a jewel at its heart.

    Lovely cosy but spacious cottage in the perfect location. Big spacious bedrooms and cosy living room. Kitchen fully equipped. A lovely place to be after a day on the beach, a trip on the steam train or a walk in the hills. We hope to be back.

    Very roomy and comfortable, lovely atmosphere. Great position with the terrace overlooking the outer harbour, and the front of the cottage overlooking an excellent pub, with other great pubs nearby, particularly “Pebbles” great for a pint of cider. Three cafes, a Bangladeshi restaurant and a tapas bar. Watchet has two good beaches, a railway station with steam engines, and good local shops. All in all a superb place for a holiday

    Great time had by two 80 somethings , two 50 somethings and one dog. Everything you need is in house or village. Would recommend coastal walk to Fossil beach if you can cope with steep steps. Pubs and cafes very welcoming of us all including dog.

    We spent two weeks at Harbour Cottage with our two grandchildren and although the weather was disappointing we had a very pleasant holiday. The cottage is well equipped and clean. It was large enough for other family members to join us for a weekend and we were eight in all. The location was very convenient and we would happily stay there again if we were to return to that area.
