Swain House is no ordinary boutique B&B. It is a luxurious nugget of hipness contrasting perfectly with Somerset’s ancient harbour town of Watchet.
Watchet boasts a beach and a beautiful harbour marina which inspired English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge to write The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’. Jason and Annie Robinson (two ex-Disney Creatives) were also touched with inspiration whilst visiting, fell in love with the town and set about converting a Victorian antique shop into the fabulous bolt-hole that is Swain House.
There are four swish double bedrooms, impeccably decked out in soothing colours whilst one wall features an oversized mural from the National Portrait Gallery. Swain House is achingly hip but super cosy at the same time. It is easy-going and informal but oozes style and contemporary rustic charm. There is every creature comfort you could want – pretty armchairs, king-sized beds with comfy padded bedheads and state of the art TV’s. All the en-suite bathrooms have power showers and free-standing roll top slipper baths, luxurious robes, fluffy white towels and REN toiletries. Bliss.
Downstairs, there is also a comfortable yet stylish dining/sitting room decorated in slate and pewter with silver velvet sofas and the room is interestingly scattered with artful interiors and books for your perusal.
Jason is an incredible cook so not only is the locally sourced, quintessential full English breakfast on the menu but there are also other unexpected delights to be sampled including a generous stack of American pancakes smothered with maple syrup. We have also been tipped off that on request Jason will provide a pretty tasty picnic for your day’s exploring or even a light supper on return. Yum.
If you are looking for an idyllic English break by the sea with your loved one then this would be a great place to visit. The house is also available to hire on an exclusive-use basis for up to 8 people so would be a great meet up place for family and friends or a celebratory event.
Watchet is a great location for exploring the shingle beaches of West Somerset, coastal paths and the wilds of Exmoor (if you can bare to leave Swanky Swain House). Now, where is the calendar?
