Find cottages in WatchetVisit Watchet

Lying at the mouth of the Washford River is the coastal town of Watchet, with its busy marina, an old port and charming houses and shops. Close by explore the Somerset coast on lovely coastal walks, enjoy day trips into Exmoor National Park or simply stroll along the Esplanade in town and watch the world go by.

In and around town there are two local museums, shops and cafes and fossil hunting hotspots on the beach. And after all the exploring and sightseeing, you can sit back and enjoy a glass of Somerset cider or locally made ice cream.

Esteemed English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' as he travelled through the area and you can follow in his footsteps and perhaps find your own inspiration by walking some of The Coleridge Way. The Coleridge Way is a 36 mile walk through the lovely Somerset countryside and Exmoor. From Nether Stowey, Coleridge's home (to the east of Watchet), you can wander through changing landscapes and historic villages with breathtaking views over to the North Somerset Coast and Wales.

If travelling with your feet up is more your style then The West Somerset Railway may be for you. With twenty miles of well-preserved steam railway, the line passes through miles of stunning countryside from Bishops Lydeard, passing through Watchet and ending at Minehead.

Watchet has a lot to offer; for accommodation please search for holiday cottages in Watchet.

The Round House Ref: EXO


This delightful and unique octagonal property, formerly an 18th-century smallholder’s cottage, nestles in an idyllic and peaceful setting. The property, close to the owner’s home, is situated by a babbling stream and a wonderful waterfall in a wooded combe in the heart of the Quantock Hills. It is surrounded by its own garden and NT land, with endless miles of walks amongst ancient oak and beech trees, and on the heathland with its ponies, sheep and red deer. Reached via an unmade track and over a footbridge, this is a rural location and makes for a perfect holiday hideaway. Superb for mountain biking, bird watching, horse riding, golf and watersports, it really is a little slice of heaven. There is a fantastic selection of British wildlife on the doorstep, with buzzards, badgers, red deer, foxes, rabbits and a pair of friendly dippers who have a nest next to the waterfall. Guests can also ‘rent a chicken’ for a week and collect their very own egg each day! This is an ideal base for hikers and dog walkers, excellent walking can be found on the Quantock Hills and Exmoor. The cottage is a short drive (or a fabulous 2½ mile walk) from the village of Nether Stowey, with its range of shops and pubs. Places of interest include Coleridge Cottage and Dunster Castle (both NT), the Somerset Levels, Glastonbury Tor, Wells Cathedral, Cheddar Gorge and Taunton. Beach 2 miles. Shop 1½ miles, pub ½ mile.

In a secluded and peaceful position on the fringes of the Quantock Hills, the cottages at Meadowsweet Farm offer a delightful base for a Somerset holiday.
