Make a holiday cottage in Porlock Weir your home away from home

Porlock Weir is an amazing little coastal settlement, situated approximately 12 kilometres west of Minehead, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Bristol Channel. With a plethora of great outdoor activities such as sailing, cycling and hiking on offer, Porlock Weir is the perfect getaway location for active couples or families, who are interested in spending their holiday exploring the amazing Somerset coastline and associated waters.

Unlike other seaside holiday destinations in the region, Porlock Weir holiday cottages offer unrivalled exclusivity and privacy, in addition to amazing sea views (or in some cases direct ocean frontage). 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.

Weather in Porlock Weir

Porlock Weir enjoys a typical temperate climate, which results in warm summers and cool, damp winters. The most popular time to visit the region is consequently during the summer months, as most travellers are interested in pursuing the area’s many great outdoor activities. Holidaymakers more concerned with relaxing, however, may find that a winter getaway in a Porlock Weir holiday cottage is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Travel to Porlock Weir

Porlock Weir may be a little of the beaten tourist trail, although its proximity to the A39 makes it extremely easy to reach by car. Holidaymakers travelling minus their own vehicle need not worry however, as Porlock Weir is serviced by regular buses from larger towns such as Minehead (except on Sundays).

Your welcome is genuine and warm. This was our third visit and the cottage was as magical as our first visit. We feel at home straight away and didnt want to leave. The dogs enjoyed the garden and loved running on the beach. We loved the comfy bed and enjoyed a restful sleep. We will be back in 2017.

My husband and I stayed there last week with friends who were over from Australia. The cottage is in a really good location very close to the delightful village of Dunster with its good choice of pubs/restaurants, as well as craft shops and an exceedingly good deli (fab pies!). Not far away are the lovely coastal villages of Lynmouth and Porlock, as well as the stunning Exmoor itself. The cottage has a great view from every room especially the bedrooms which is lovely to wake up and look out to. It was pretty cold weather whilst we were there but the cottage was lovely and warm, we didn’t need to light the wood burner but did anyway to add to the already cosy atmosphere. Everything you need is provided, which you don’t always get at holiday lets. Thank you Becky and Mark, we shall certainly be back :-)
