LOCATION: Situated in the ancient harbour town of Watchet, boasting a colourful maritime history dating back over two thousand years. Nestled between Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills it is hard to believe that the M5 is only half an hour away, with Bristol and its international airport easily commutable. 21st Century Watchet still hold all the charm from long ago while offering the amenities essential to modern living including; junior school, bank, a post office, hairdressers, convenience stores and a host of antique, gift and art shops as well as pubs, hotels, a museum and a doctor’s surgery, the town certainly has a great deal to offer anyone wishing to make their home here. The coastline and the recently constructed marina, opened in 2001, are notable attractions of the area. For steam enthusiasts, The West Somerset Railway runs regularly throughout the year connecting Bishops Lydeard and Minehead with Watchet and all local stations on route.
