The Square is one of a group of cottages overlooking a pretty garden, in a quiet corner just off Watchet centre in Somerset, a few yards from the marina and steam railway. It's convenient for shops, restaurants, pubs and is a perfect base for exploring nearby Exmoor, the Quantocks and Devon.
The historic seaside village of Watchet is a popular holiday destination in the lovely area of West Somerset, known for its pretty countryside, characterful villages and coastline, a fossil-hunter's haven. Coleridge wrote one of his most famous poems whilst in Watchet.

Children are welcome, but it is not suitable for toddlers or the disabled due to the stairs. Ideal for a couple or small family.
