Watchet is an historic harbour town situated on the West Somerset Coastline which served as an ancient shipping port for hundreds of years. Watchet is a hidden gem, with an active community that sees events all of types being organised voluntarily throughout the year for the benefit of not only the community but the many thousands of visitors who come here.
In recent years Watchet has seen a number of changes including some excellent property development, which has added to its attraction and quirkiness. With several cafes, and a number of goods pubs including the popular Pebbles Tavern which has won the CAMRA Cider Branch Pub of the year four years running, its easy to spend a day here relaxing. There is a recently opened Boat Museum detailing Watchet's past, The Marina, and a station for the West Somerset Steam Railway for those that want to take a trip back in time. There are also excellent links to local bus services that run to the seaside town of Minehead and the County town of Taunton.
Watchet is definitely a place to come and see and experience, and I'm sure like most who live here now, you will become hooked.
