Cosy apartment in Porlock village on Exmoor - sleeps 2
Just Right For Two
Lovely apartment... cosy and well equipped ... we had a highly enjoyable short break (4 nights) despite the rain and high winds . Bed too soft for what we're used to but the convenient location and smart modern decor made up for the bed's shortcomings ... highly recommended ... Ken and Liz
Porlock is a wonderful working Exmoor village and boasts three pubs, two grocery shops, a traditional local butcher, chemist, cash machine, petrol station, hardware shop, visitor centre, several art galleries and a range of independent restaurants, shops and tea rooms. Porlock Weir is approximately 1.5 miles from Porlock and is well worth a visit. There are two restaurants (The Cafe and Miller's at the Anchor), a pub and a range of individual shops such as tea rooms, Exmoor Glass and Studio 7 (imported beautiful textiles). Many of the shops in Porlock and Porlock Weir are open during traditional hours of 9 am to 5 pm, although hours are often extended during the summer season. Conversely, some shops also reduce their opening hours out of season.
Minehead is the nearest town, approximately 6 miles from Porlock. Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrison's are both situated on the outskirts of the town and have longer opening hours), most major high street banks with cash machines, plus a range of other shops throughout the town.
