Watchet


Watchet - Somerset Coast Festival polaroid image

Watchet is a lively coastal town with so much to do whatever the weather. It has been a harbour town for over 1000 years which means that it has plenty of stories of Vikings, Kings and Queens and even headless saints! As well as beautiful and quirky buildings.  It is sheltered by the Quantock Hills and with view across the channel to Wales and down the coast to Minehead and Exmoor, the landscape around the town is simply stunning.

This small coastal town is sandwiched between the Quantock Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty – and Exmoor National Park, with its stunning heather clad, undulating hills. Just a stone’s throw from the town you can explore beautiful, dense woodland, follow meandering rivers and marvel at the ancient monuments of Landacre Bridge and Tarr Steps. All you need is a thermos of tea and some walking boots. Dunster Castle and Cleeve Abbey also sit just a few miles away.

We’re also spoilt for choice for indoor entertainment. If you’re coming here with children there’s a wealth of wildlife parks, zoos and activity centres on our doorstep.
