Great location. Lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage for a couple or a family. Lots of great scenery. No beach here but nice older world pub with open fire and decent food.Cottage Fire needs lots of wood but still good to mess about with. No loo in main bedroom but shower and basin. Loo in bathroom at end of upstairs corridor and another downstairs.Village shop by very small harbour sells papers and basics, Pollock village 2 miles away has everything else inc ATM but no bank. Not good if you are unsteady on your feet.

Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.

Porlock Weir has a quaint little harbour and its own unique charm; the port has a long and colourful history. Today Porlock Weir is a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, pubs and local cuisine. On a fine day, the South West Coast Path offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the fabulous views across Porlock Weir and the bay. The coastal footpath links up with many other walking trails including Culbone, home to the smallest church in England. One of the more unusual attractions at Porlock Weir is the submerged forest. At low tide, the remains of ancient tree trunks arise from the grey clay soil. These desiccated stumps are the last remaining evidence of a forest that, once upon a time, lay five miles inland.
