Watchet

Watchet is an ancient harbour town nestled between the Quantock Hills area of Outstanding national beauty and Exmoor National Park.

Watchet’s harbour has been converted into a modern marina. The esplanade, overlooking the marina, is popular for a stroll of an evening. A town rich with heritage, the market house museum and boat museum are just a few examples. Try fossil hunting on the local beaches and cliff areas.

Watchet has a select range of shopping and culinary delights. From the award winning Chives Cafe & Deli who won the silver taste of the west award to the local Bell Inn which also won the Somerset CAMRA Real Ale award 2006.

Watchet also inspired the Tale of Ancient Mariner by Samuel Coleridge who often visited when walking from Nether Stowey.

Whatever your interests you’ll love Watchet... A friendly and safe vibrant community!

Exmoor & The Quantock Hills

Exmoor National park is 267 square miles of ancient wooded forests, dramatic coastline
and sweeping moorland. Take in panormic views at Dunkery beacon on the Holnicote estate, explore enchanting villages and peaceful towns.

Exmoor is home to wild herds of red deer and Exmoor ponies. Why not take an Exmoor Safari to get close to nature, enjoy the hiking, mountain biking and riding, or simply relax with a cream tea!

Exmoor and the Quantocks are host to a wide variety of exciting events and festivals throughout the year.

The Quantock hills were the first designated area of Outstanding National Beauty in England, 50 years later the Quantocks remain a popular destination for walking, riding and mountain biking.
