About this Holiday Cottage

Oyster Catchers is a charming mid-terrace fisherman's cottage in the heart of Watchet on the Somerset Coast.  Ideal for a family of four or for couples, this character cottage has a rear garden with sea views and there is direct access from the back door onto the beach.  Restaurants including The Cat's Whisker, a specialist Tapas restaurant, is only 6 minutes away and an acclaimed Indian restaurant is also just moments away.

Living Space

  • Painted wooden entrance hall, staircase and lounge floor.  Original matchboarding separates the hallway from the cosy lounge to your left.
  • Attractive flagged kitchen leading into a diner with a picture window and double glazed doors looking towards the sea at the rear.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

  • Short flight of stairs up to a bathroom at the top of the stairs with a separate shower and a roll top bath.
  • Up a small dog leg and just to your right - a double bedroom which overlooks the rear of the property.
  • The larger of the two bedrooms, a twin, is to the front of the house - this bedroom can be a double if preferred.

Two private gated areas are to the rear of the property, bordered by a picket fence.  One of these is just to the rear and is flagged, and separated from the second area by a footpath running the length of the backs of this charming old fisherman's cottage.  The path runs down to the slipway and beach below.

The second area just beyond the foopath sits on the bluff with beach views and is gravelled and gated with a picket fence.  This area looks over the beach and a sea pool below.  It has wonderful views towards the harbour wall and distinctive red lighthouse, and beyond to Steepholm island and the Welsh coast.  Guests can enjoy the additional beach hut with deck chairs in this area and sit back and admire the stunning seascapes.

Other Things to Note

  • Heating and electric are included in the booking price.
  • Bed linen if provided - please bring along your own towels.


Check-in is from 4pm and check-out is by 10am. 

Around and About

Watchet is a beautiful town on the West Somerset Coast with Exmoor National Park to the West and the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east.

The town has a thriving arts scene and hosts many art exhibitions including in recent times high profile names such as Matisse.  Many artists are in residence in the town with their work on display in local galleries. 

A boat museum is located near the Tourist Information Centre and you can access the Steam Railway and Market House Museum by the Esplanade. 

Local walks head off along the pretty Mineral Line towards Donniford Beach or just sit back and relax around the Esplanade and Marina area.
