East Quay Art

Pod 1 features bespoke vintage and pre-loved fittings mixed with ‘found’ objects in an eclectic mix, reflecting the unique flavour of Watchet.

Visitors are invited to swap an item from the 'living museum' selection with an item of your finding during your stay.  

The Living Museum or 'Object-Exchange' pod is situated on the first floor of East Quay. Downstairs is a well-equipped rustic kitchen complete with an integrated fridge, microwave, Belfast sink, and induction hobs. If you don’t feel like cooking then you can head downstairs to East Quay Kitchen for a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner or cake. The beautifully finished bathroom is complete with toilet, sink, and shower.

 A ship-style staircase leads to a mezzanine level with a quirky seating area overlooking a huge wraparound window. Tucked into the corner is a standard double bed, with luxury organic bedlinen and an organic wool duvet, on top of a luxury natural mattress.

This pod has its own private balcony area for enjoying the sunsets as well as stunning views over the town, harbour and sea. It is perfect for a romantic break.

You access the pod from the first floor concrete walkway, which can be reached by both internal and external stairs or the lift. But the steep stairs within the pod are not suitable for those with mobility issues.

"This is a great idea and unique venture bringing life and culture to historic Watchet. The pod is quirky and fun, the artists welcoming and staff are friendly. The interactive living museum part of the pod is an inspired idea. Restaurant is fab, great food and choices with ethical considerations taking into account. Thanks for a great stay - one to remember!"

"Probably the most unique Airbnb I’ve stayed in. Even though it’s a pod, it’s so spacious. The interior is clever and quickly. Great views of the harbour and so peaceful at night. I strongly recommend the East Quay Kitchen for food as well. They even let us take some board rooms from the cafe up to our pod for the night 😁"

"Different, arrived into a great little community all eager to help and share what they do there. If you are into the arts then you're in heaven. A little diverse enclave of talent and harbour awaits, and the pods we stayed in have history from previous occupants encouraged, a lovely touch. We arrived on their first birthday and the celebrations, which were like being with old friends. Great venue, great people who went the extra mile."
