Good value for the money.
Good value, good location, shame about the outlook.
Porlock is perfect base for exploring
Handily located just off the high street, it's a good little house for a short stay, with a parking space outside. Lots to see and do locally and further afield.
lovely cottage in a perfect location.could not fault in any way.
This cottage is in such a great location-we really did have a wonderful time and the village of Porlock is beautiful and extremely dog friendly. The cottage is cosy yet deceivingly spacious with a parking space right outside (quite tight to turn around if there are other cars in the courtyard but we do have a pick-up!). It is right in the centre of Porlock village with easy access to the marshes/beach and all local amenities including dog friendly pubs and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this cottage if you’re looking for a central base within the Exmoor National Park. Only thing to bear in mind is that there is no garden so if you’re travelling with dogs, you have to take them out on a lead.
cozy cottage and in good location,.dog friendly village.
We had a great time staying in this lovely place.
Tidy and clean and very functional place, within a cute and quiet area
Porlock is a very lovely but buzzy village very much centered on providing for holidaymakers, but without a "kiss me quick" hat to be seen! You will find many fine places to eat, pubs, antique shops, art galleries, and museums, and of course you're in beautiful Exmoor, with all it has to offer (The Exmoor national park covers over 260 square miles!).
Walking is very popular, with or without dogs, with some walks passing by the entrance to the courtyard. The beach and sea is a short walk of about a mile, with other walks to Bossington and Allerford, or Porlock Weir, being just a few miles longer. There should be some leaflets of recommended walks in the cottage. PLEASE NOTE - THE BREACH IN THE SHINGLE BETWEEN PORLOCK BAY AND PORLOCK WEIR MUST NOT BE CROSSED, AS IT IS VERY DANGEROUS!!
The moors are just at the top of Porlock hill, and there are some lovely walks, particularly around the Brendon area (We would recommend the Stag Hunters Inn at Brendon, or the Rockford Inn, on the walk from Brendon in the direction of Lynmouth, for refreshments/meals). For the more ambitious, the walk from Brendon all the way to Lynmouth, taking in Watersmeet, and The Valley of the Rocks is very lovely, and well worth doing.
The Lynton to Lynmouth cliff railway, powered by water and gravity is another "must see". There are also some steam train railways in the area, one of the nearest being at Woody Bay station near Lynmouth.
For those of you who just want to spend the day on a nice sandy beach, Woolacombe, Combe Martin, Westward Ho, Saunton Sands, and many others are just a short drive down the coast.
