East Quay Art

Our Playful Architecture pod is an interactive space, inviting playfulness with its adaptive building fabric and furniture. A large cargo net is installed over the living area below to play, relax, or snooze on. The ply walls are covered with a semaphore code, which guests are invited to crack and it has a rainbow bathroom.

The Playful Architecture pod is situated on the second floor of East Quay.

Inside the pod is a kitchen complete with an integrated fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, sink, and induction hobs. If you don’t feel like cooking then just head downstairs toEast Quay Kitchen for a delicious meal. A dining table overlooks a shared terrace space with views of the Harbour and sea.

The bathroom has a toilet, sink, and open shower.

A steep ship-style staircase leads to a mezzanine level which hosts a double bed, with luxury organic bed linen and an organic wool duvet, on top of a luxury natural mattress.  The more adventurous can even opt to sleep on the cargo net!

Please note that this pod may not be suitable for some guests due to the very steep stairs.

It is possible for us to add extra camp beds to this pod for small children, but if you are a family coming to stay, you might want to check out pod 2.

"Such a cool and unique place to stay! Really gorgeous room, with everything we needed. Stunning views of the harbour and so peaceful and private. East Quay galleries were very good, and all the staff were super friendly and helpful! :-) This will definitely be a very memorable stay - we want to come back soon!"

"Amazing stay :) there’s a big kid in all of us so to lay on the cargo net suspended above the living area whilst watching a massive tv was more than fun :) If I was to take the children they would have to wait until I’ve had my go :) Clean, warm and views to die for."

"East Quay is a real gem in Watchet. The place is modern, clean and fun. Staff is super friendly and the food is 10/10 (definitely recommend the wraps!). The pod view is breathtaking especially at sunset. We booked it as an overnight stop but we wished we had stayed longer! A real great place to stay."
