The Stable Block offers comfortable accommodation for couples seeking a luxurious getaway, just a stone's throw from beautiful Porlock Weir. This cottage boasts a fabulous bedroom from where you admire the wonderful views of the terrace, garden and Porlock Bay from the juliette balcony. The king-sized bed offers the additional comfort of a television - cunningly hidden in the foot of the bed that rises up at the push of a button! A modern bathroom is located next to the bedroom and has a shower over the bath and heated towel rail. Downstairs an open-plan living and kitchen area provides a range of modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a dining table for meals, although you may choose take advantage of the views and eat outdoors during the summer months.
Perfect for two, The Stable Block is an ideal romantic getaway

Perfect short break - thank you
From start to finish everything was perfect. The correspondence and help during the booking of the property to the stay itself.
The Stable Block is a beautiful, well presented cottage with stunning views. An ideal property for two. Cosy and very comfortable.
On arrival we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack which included tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge. The cottage was very well equipped for a self catering stay. Spotlessly clean with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc.
They had also provided a hairdryer, hair straighteners, hot water bottle, shower gels etc.
We came for a few days away for peace and quiet and certainly found it here. The cottage is a short walk from Porlock Weir. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful. We had mixed weather during our stay but that didn't spoil our enjoyment. Two days of sunshine, one of sunshine and very heavy showers and rain the day we left to come home. Exmoor is very different in the sunshine and rain and we were lucky to experience both.
We would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return one day soon.
Thank you for a wonderful short break.
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.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. One basket of logs will be provided for the wood-burner, further logs can be purchased locally. Bed linen and towels are provided.
