About the neighbourhood
It’s hard to describe just how beautiful the local area is. Watchet itself is a historic harbour town with bags of character, quaintness and charm. Set in between the Quantocks, Brendan Hills and Exmoor, it is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The coast line is filled with wonderful beaches ideal for dog walkers, fossil hunters, anglers and bird watchers.

There’s something truly unique about Watchet’s mix of rocky cliffs, pebbled and sandy beaches, picturesque lighthouse, peaceful harbour, restaurant, shops, pubs and art galleries.

Go for a ride on the steam railway, walk up the old mineral line, spend a day at the beautiful Blue Anchor Bay, visit nearby medieval Dunster with its castle or take a family trip to Minehead.
