We had a fantastic week in Porlock and this cottage really exceeded our expectations as the pictures do not show how fab the views are. Our children loved the park at the end of the road and we loved all the walks on offer. Particularly loved the outside cafe in Bossington village which sold the best fruitcake in the world.

The situation is ideal: surrounded with lovely wooded hills, but a short stroll into Porlock to pick up the morning paper. Its a great base for exploring Exmoor. The cottage itself is very comfortable and has been beautifully renovated: we especially enjoyed breakfast in the conservatory.

Wonderful comfortable cottage. There was 5 of us - we stayed with our 3 teenage children. Plenty of space- lovely separate dining room to eat and play games. The conservatory was lovely to sit in at anytime of day especially as the beautiful cherry tree was in blossom. Lovely white bed linen and towels. Spotlessly clean. We were blessed with lovelyRead more weather and enjoyed a coffee on the top terrace every morning. A beautiful cottage very well equipped with lots of space ideally located! Hide

Good location for walking without having to go in a car first. Also an easy 10 minute walk to Porlock main street for shops pubs etc. The house is very clean and nicely furnished and the heating system is easy to use if needed. It is good for the winter to have the woodburner in the living room. The conservatory is lovely and light for reading etc.
