Gorgeous boutique B&B in watchet, contemporarily decorated with lovely owner. Attentive service and lovely breakfast. Comfortable bed and huge bath. Parking nearby at £5 per day. Maybe a little steep price for watchet at £150 per night but there’s no competition nearby.

Small but perfectly formed. Everything was impeccable. Thank you Jason. Really convenient for West Somerset Railway which is a very relaxing way to spend a day. If you want a delicious evening meal book up at The Cat's Whisker which is only 2 minutes' walk from Swain House.

We had a wonderful overnight stay in a luxurious room and left feeling fully recharged after only one night. We only booked last minute and consider ourselves fortunate to have discovered this gem of a b&b in a town we know well. The owners could not have been more helpful.
