The quaint village of Porlock and the medieval town of Dunster, with its National Trust castle, are well worth a visit.

This was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It was fully equipped with everything and more and really clean. The location is perfect for walking in the local area especially Tarr Steps, Lorna Doone valley and The valley of the Rocks. There is nothing negative about our week here to say. It was just perfect and we will return.

Had a very relaxing break at Garden Lodge. It is a lovely accommodation spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. It was nicely secluded from the main building with use of the garden (chairs and table provided) and swimming pool (although unaccompanied swimming is not permissible). The location is good for travelling and onRead morely minutes walk from the railway station and seafront. There is a small shop and a couple of pubs within walking distance serving food. Hide

Nigel and Paula were most hospitable. The cottage was in lovely peaceful surroundings. Lots of places to see near by.i.e Dunster castle and steam engine line two minutes walk away. Will definitely recommend to others and hope to holiday there again.
