Centrally located,comfortable,warm + welcoming B&B. Emma is the perfect hostess with a banana cake to die for! She cares about Watchet & the local area. She is full of information & advice to help you plan your day's activities. We would certainly return to this B&B and Watchet.

My husband and myself have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Bank House and would highly recommend it. Emma is a lovely host and nothing is to much trouble, she is a hive of information on the local area and interests. The breakfast is excellent cooked to your liking and keeps you going well into the afternoon....

Thank you Emma for a warm welcome, the coffee and cake on arrival was most welcome,sorry I didn't make breakfast! I can thoroughly recommend this B&B for its location,cleanliness,free car park and WiFi. Watchet is a great location for the West Somerset Railway and The Bank House is just a couple of hundred yards from the station.

We stayed for one night in September 2013 and were warmly welcomed by Emma with a cuppa and cake. The room was compact but very comfortable with a large shower room, the one thing needing attention was the bottom of the shower where there was some mold/mildew which was a shame given the overall cleanliness. The bed was a good...

From the time of our arrival to the time we left, nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Everywhere was spotless, the Bedroom was roomy and had free wi fi. The breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. The bonus of having on site parking in Watchet is a real plus point. It is an ideal base for...

We arrived at The Bank House to a warm welcome from Emma, who gave us tea and cake after showing us our room. The room was not over large, but was very comfortable, and had everything we needed. There was a large shower cubicle in the bathroom and all the hot water we needed. Breakfast was excellent with a choice...

We arrived in the pouring rain to a very warm welcome from Emma. After directing us to their nearby private free carpark, she offered us a welcome pot of tea and cake, which we enjoyed sat in the cosy front room. The Bank House has been lovingly and beautifully restored and the en-suite bedroom we had was comfortable and roomy....

The b&b is a clean and friendly place to stay with modern fittings and styling. Emma was very welcoming and gave great advice on what to do and see in the area and in the evening. The village is a lively place with a great community feel. Emma was flexible with breakfast timings and food choices. It's right in the...

We were greeted with a friendly welcome and given a choice of rooms - both quite different in style but equally nice, and v tasteful. Lovely cooked breakfast and Emma was a good host, nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend Bank House for a relaxed weekend away and to explore all the local area offers.
