The Square Somerset Holiday Cottage

England: South West: Somerset: Watchet

Tucked away in a sunny quiet corner of the old seaside village of Watchet in Somerset, a short walk to the marina.

The Square is one of a group of 3 cottages overlooking a pretty shrubbery, in a quiet corner just off Watchet centre street in Somerset, a few yards from the marina and steam railway. It's convenient for shops, restaurants, pubs and is a perfect base for exploring nearby Exmoor, the Quantocks and Devon. The historic seaside village of Watchet is a popular holiday destination in the lovely area of West Somerset, known for its pretty countryside, charming villages, and coastline, a fossil-hunter's haven. Coleridge wrote one of his most famous poems whilst in Watchet. A home away from home, the cottage is well-equipped, nicely furnished with thoughtful touches throughout. Two bedrooms: a double bed, 2 singles, and baby's folding cot. Children welcome, but not suitable for toddlers or physically disabled. Small well-behaved dogs welcome.


Substantial discounts for last-minute bookings.

Garden / Grounds:
The cottage has a small patio next to a public pathway.

Views, wildlife and local environment:
Just around the corner from the cottage is the lovely marina, with view across to Wales, a perfect spot for enjoying the evening sun, and pebbly beaches, which are great for beach-combing or fossil-hunting.
