Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Watchet

A historical harbour town in Somerset, Watchet lies at the mouth of the Washford River on Bridgwater Bay, part of the Bristol Channel and on the edge of Exmoor National Park. An attractive pleasure marina now fills the ancient harbour and the town’s other attractions include art galleries, local craft shops, a weekly market, tea rooms, restaurants and real Somerset ale and cider pubs. Chartered deep sea fishing trips can be booked from Watchet Harbour and a variety of fish species can be caught depending on the season, including cod, ling, pouting, bass, skate and whiting. The cliffs and shoreline either side of Watchet Harbour are of geological interest and fossils can be readily found. The Market House Museum, near the harbour, is full of things to see including collections of fossils, maritime and railway artefacts. Watchet Boat Museum celebrates the history of flatner boats local to this area. Steam trains, on the restored West Somerset Railway, can be boarded from Watchet station.
