Holiday Rental House
Greengates is a gorgeous period property set right on the West Somerset Coast in the beautiful harbour town of Watchet. The cottage is directly opposite the beach, just a stroll from Watchet’s famous picturesque marina, local shops, pubs, steam railway and cafes. The cottage has been lovingly renovated and is quiet and cosy, whilst still retaining its period features like the open fireplace and stone walled dining room. Boasting sea views and parking for one vehicle at the front, it also has an enclosed garden at the back that's perfect for family BBQs after a long day exploring! This outside space also makes Greengates ideal for those with young children or dogs.

The cottage easily sleeps 6-8 adults with 3 good sized bedrooms, the master has a king size bed and a sea view, the back room looks over the garden with one double bed and the other bedroom has views out over the town and the Quantocks and two single beds. There's also a comfy double sofa bed in the lounge should you want to have a full house. We are happy to accommodate infants and a travel cot is available.There are 2 bathrooms upstairs, one with a roll top bath and both with good showers, as well as a downstairs cloakroom with a WC. The cottage has a fully fitted kitchen complete with a range cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and all cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are provided - so no need to pack the kitchen sink! There's also a wonderful dining room with a wooden beamed ceiling, a good sized table and plenty of seating. The Utility room houses the freezer, washing machine and a handy sink. Greengates lounge is stylish and comfortable with an open fireplace, plenty of room to seat the family in comfort, and a TV with Freeview and a Chromecast. We have plenty of books, puzzles, an X-Box and board games in case of wet weather or if you just fancy a bottle of wine and a night in by the fire. There's even a TV with an Amazon Firestick in the Master Bedroom. The cottage has free Wif-Fi with a good quality Fibre Broadband connection. There is one private off street parking space for guests use and that is the driveway situated directly in front of the house.

About the neighbourhood
It’s hard to describe just how beautiful the local area is. Watchet itself is a historic harbour town with bags of character, quaintness and charm. Set in between the Quantocks, Brendan Hills and Exmoor, it is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The coast line is filled with wonderful beaches ideal for dog walkers, fossil hunters, anglers and bird watchers. There’s something truly unique about Watchet’s mix of rocky cliffs, pebbled and sandy beaches, picturesque lighthouse, peaceful harbour, restaurant, shops, pubs and art galleries. Go for a ride on the steam railway, walk up the old mineral line, spend a day at the beautiful Blue Anchor Bay, visit nearby medieval Dunster with its castle or take a family trip to Minehead.
Getting around
So much to see in Watchet. We’re a stones throw from all the shops, pubs and restaurants you could need - you may not need to go anywhere else! Good local buses. Steam Railway during peak season. Plenty of good roads and taxi services.
