Location ideal but property below standard expected

  • 2 of 5

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.

Often described as 'the jewel in Exmoor's crown', Porlock has a long history of settlements existing on or near the site of the existing village, with stone-age remains only a short distance away. Porlock is a working village and boasts a number of pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and independent shops. There few more delightful surroundings than Porlock Vale, nestled at the foot of Porlock Hill, bounded to the north by its shingle ridge and breath taking views towards the Bristol Channel, and to the south by the rolling hills of the Exmoor National Park. The Exmoor coastline is formed mainly of cliffs but at Porlock the land flattens out and a unique mile long shingle ridge and an inland salt marsh have formed. For the bird watcher this is a very interesting site as a great variety of waders and wildfowl can be seen here in the winter as well as the occasional unusual bird passing through.
