We booked a weekend away during September 2012, at Swain House in Watchet,Somerset.As soon as we entered Swain House,the exquisite decor was immediately evident and we knew we were in for a very special stay.We were greeted by Jason,who immediately offered us refreshments before taking us up to our rooms.Infact Jason had been extremely helpful even before our stay,I asked him to recommend somewhere for dinner and he not only telephoned me but also went to the trouble of emailing over a number of suitable restaurants/pubs.We ate at The Culbone,which I highly recommend.
Our bedroom was just delightful - spotlessly clean,with a gloriously comfortable king size bed and an ensuite bathroom that was quite simply one of the best we have ever experienced.Then there was the tray with cafetiere and "proper" coffee,teapot and sugar tongs.In the bedside cabinet there was even an Ipod docking station! It is the attention to detail that Jason and Annie have executed to perfection alongside considered and innovative design throughout the Swain House.
Watchet itself is a truely lovely harbour town,steeped in history with its own delightful Marina.It makes an excellent base to visit Somerset and indeed Devon.We would recommend Swain House unreservedly to anyone and are already planning a return visit.
