Grace Cottage is a charming nineteenth century property situated in the heart of Porlock and set back from the main road for peace and quiet.
The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, ideal for families and couples wanting to explore this lovely working village and Exmoor. Renovated in 2006, the main part of downstairs has been opened up to create a spacious and light-filled room in which to cook, eat and relax.
The sofa in the sitting room is a sofa bed, to provide extra bed space if required. The kitchen is fitted with modern facilities and there is a downstairs toilet.
Upstairs there is one double and one twin bedroom plus a contemporary bathroom, with powerful shower over the bath.
Location, amenities, layout as described.
Property was not cleaned to an acceptable standard. Cobwebs with dead flies in kitchen. Dirty, greasy oven trays. Toilet not cleaned - still had faeces on bowl.
It seems that some change occurred between booking and the holiday with the ownership. We were not informed of this. My account with Owners Direct still shows payments pending even though deposit and balance were paid in good time. Leaflet explaining arrival procedure was inaccurate. No slip for car parking was available as stated. Phone call connected to a lady who I assume was the previous owner - she knew nothing about my booking but was able to tell me about the parking.
We would not recommend this property which seems to have disappeared from Owners Direct lists.
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.
