There are fossils and artefacts from the stone and iron age and the place is well worth a visit.

-Doniford Farm is a must if you chosen holiday accommodation in Watchet.

Could easily fit a family of up to four too. Lots of lovely touches to the cottage and a real place for respite! We loved our stay and found Verity welcoming and friendly. Would happily re commend to anyone :)

Booked this for a valentine break only to find the decor was a romantic red theme! Perfect!

The flowers, welcome pack and cake were a lovely touch. There were many interesting walks around Dunster starting from the doorstep. We also visited Lynmouth, Lynton and Portlock Weir. We had delicious toasted sandwiches at the Portlock Weir art gallery cafe and tasty fish and chips at Driftwood cafe in Blue Anchor. Both dog friendly!! Hope to return soon.
