Accommodation is priced from around £300 per week, which when compared to larger and less private coastal locations such as the popular resort of Minehead, proves to be great value for money. With all mod cons, holiday cottages in Porlock Weir are ideal for a traditional British seaside holiday.

    Things to do

    -Sailing: Porlock Weir is a perfect destination for sailing enthusiasts, with a number of boat charters dotting the region. Visitors may even like to try some sea fishing while they’re on the water. Holidaymakers more interested in relaxing on the shore however, may enjoy spending their time relaxing or fishing on the beach, before strolling back to their cosy Porlock Weir holiday cottage for a glass of wine in the evening.

    -Walking: Porlock Weir is popular with avid hikers, with a number of great, long-distance coastal walking paths snaking through this part of Somerset. One fantastic trail in proximity to Porlock Weir but even closer to holiday homes in Dunster is the well-known South West Coast Path, which stretches roughly 1,013 kilometres along the coastline of the Southwest Peninsula.

    -Bird watching: Porlock Weir’s location in relation to the coast and Exmoor National Park make it the perfect destination for bird watching. There are numerous coastal walks for spotting a wide variety of avian species or there’s the Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre for seeing birds of prey in action.

    -Natural attractions: Star Gazing may sound like a strange activity to undertake as part of a coastal getaway, but Porlock Weir is the perfect location for it: Exmoor has been designated an “International Dark Sky Reserve”. This basically means that the region around Porlock Weir holiday homes provides some of the most exceptional night sky viewing in the world.

    -Museums: The Porlock Museum and the Allerford Rural Life Museum are two very interesting cultural destinations situated near Porlock. Both Museums are designed to provide visitors with a great deal of information regarding the history of the local area. If travellers only have time to visit one of these establishments, however, the collection of 19th-century artefacts displayed at the Allerford Rural Life Museum are certainly worth prioritising.
