Accommodation at East Quay

Book your accommodation

The accommodation pods at East Quay each have their own concept and story, each in some way reflecting the town, its culture, heritage, and future hopes.

Pod 1: Object Exchange, sleeps two and has stunning views to the harbour and marina from its large living room window and private balcony area on the first floor.  The pod has been designed as a ‘living museum’ and contains shelving with numerous objects donated by local people, such as fossils, books, ornaments, and keepsakes, each with a label and a story attached describing the objects significance to them and Watchet. Guests are invited to take any object with a label, in return leaving an object from their stay with a story on a label describing why it is important to them. 

Pod 2: Stories and Imagination, is a larger pod which sleeps 4. Each wall is etched with drawings that describe the stories of Watchet’s past present and future, from the steam railway to the legend of the Gurt Wurm, Watchet’s notorious local dragon. Pod 2 has an accessible arrangement on the lower floor to allow for visitors with mobility impairment and a fully accessible bathroom, kitchen and eating area. 

Pod 3: Luxury Industrial, sleeps 2 and shines a spotlight on Watchet’s industrial past, with a steam-punk vibe.  It has a bathtub on its mezzanine floor, in front of a wall sized window looking out to sea. So that guests can soak in the tub with unparalleled views out to sea. 

Pod 4: Playful pod, sleeps 2-4. Has a cargo net stretching across from the mezzanine floor, the ply walls are covered with a semaphore code, which guests are invited to crack and a rainbow bathroom. The pod also shares a terrace with Pod 5, from which you can watch the sunset over the Bristol Channel. 

Pod 5: Participatory Art, sleeps 2. Every 6 months a resident artist is invited to use the interior of Pod 5 as their canvas, they must be socially engaged, and their work must respond in some way to Watchet. Currently graffiti artist Andy Council holds the residency. He has worked with children from local schools, holding graffiti workshops and together they have created the designs you can now see in Pod 5.
