Swain House Boutique B&B

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Right in the centre of Watchet on Swain Street discover the wonderful world of Swain House Boutique B&B. Easy-going, informal and bursting with life, this lovingly restored 18th century shop oozes eclectic style and contemporary rustic charm. Only a stroll from the coast, Watchet boasts a beach and a beautiful harbor marina which inspired English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge to write the Rime of the Ancient Mariner in 1798.

Swain House's expansive 4 rooms are designed for indulgent getaways. Extras can be ordered for your room: so on arrival you could have some luxury homemade truffles, local florist bouquet of flowers or strawberries and a bottle of Verve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne calling in a bucket of ice.
