    Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of animal tours throughout the day which were great to listen to. The indoor and outdoor play areas were loved by my kiddies (5 and 2).

    Lots to like about Cleeve Abbey, from the magnificent entrance to the lovely tiled floors and they certainly knew how to build a fireplace.

    Small but packed with lots of interesting items. You can go in for free but there is the option to give a contribution. Learned a lot about Watchet history and about the people who live there.

    What a gorgeous walk we had along Watchet Harbour in the glorious sunshine, cold but refreshing and no wind!! Of course we had to stop and admire the statue of world-famous The Ancient Mariner as well as the boats in the dock. A memorable day indeed!

    Visit here every time we visit the area, three times this year.
    Breakfast really good, ingredients fresh and well cooked.
    Staff in both restaurant and farm shop always friendly and helpful.
    Our granddaughter absolutely loved the animals they all look happy, well fed and cared for.
    We haven’t visited the soft play yet as very hot weather when we had our granddaughter with us, but we have looked in and it looks fun and very clean, will definitely visit another time.
    Thank you

    This statue of local-born Yankee Jack commemorates the man who travelled all over the world, including America, collecting folk songs. These songs were later acquired by the famous Cecil Sharp and included in the history of folk songs. There is a Cecil Sharp House in London where I visited many years ago. Anyway, this statue is really impressive and adds to the interest of a walk along Watchet Harbourside.

    We love everything about Watchet, such a quaint seaside town, full of history including being the inspiration of Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner (he lived nearby in Nether Stowey)! Watchet was once a very important seafaring town and so we visited the Watchet Boat Museum - for free! It is quite a small museum but full of interesting artefacts and facts! Nice lady in the gift/booklet part as you enter who answered my questions. Highly recommended!

    Nice little harbour, few things going on including market, having a pint and some statues. As well as looking at the boats.

    We all had a fantastic time learning to be Archers and I know it was because of your excellent teaching. You explained everything so clearly making each element so easy to understand and put into practice. You also struck the right balance between the necessary authority to keep us safe and encouragement and humour to help us relax as we developed our new skills.

    Thank you also for being so accommodating and generous over the timings

    All in all thank you for a great afternoon it was everything I had hoped for AND more

    There is only one St Decuman (so not St Decumen's). Very interesting interior with the Wyndham Chapel, splendid stained glass windows with oldest dated 1273,chancel roof lined with carved wooden angels, the tiles on the chancel floor are thought to originatein the 13century from Cleeve Abbey etc etc. Taking the path from the church to Snailholt you will find the tranquil St Decumans Holy Well - well worth a visit.

    We were very underwhelmed by the artwork and crafts on offer here- the idea of having a quirky building housing local works is fabulous, sadly we saw nothing that would make us want to make a return visit

    Super way to spend a few relaxing hours with the family.
    The children's playground is a great place for them to let off steam and the small farm animals section is a great way for kids to get up close and personal with pigs& chickens.

    The cafe does a good selection of dishes ,all very tasty and the shop sells some of the cider from the farm itself.

    The staff are always polite and friendly with a special mention to Phoebe who is always smiling ,even when the pressure is on!

    We dropped in on a rainy day and were warmly greeted and immediately felt relaxed.
    A good selection of local ciders and beers in top condition.
    Will definitely visit again when next in Watchet.

    Found this place on the first day of our holiday. We had walked across the beach from Donniford. Wonderful place. Well kept real cider and ales. Sat outside and watched the harbour. Inside the place was clean with very friendly and helpful staff. Did lots of walking but managed to find walks that ended in watchet so we could have a few pints before heading back across the beach. Real find with an Amazing interior. Thank you
