About the property

Deceptively spacious cottage almost on the beach at Porlock Weir

There's no two ways about it - Quay Cottage is iconic; if you have been to Porlock Weir, you will undoubtedly recognise this cottage. We are delighted to offer this deceptively spacious thatched property in the heart of Porlock Weir for your holiday destination. Overlooking the harbour on one side and a private walled garden backing onto the beach on the other, this really is a unique property that just radiates character and charm.

Quay Cottage sleeps up to 5 people; there is a double bedroom, small single bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Downstairs is a large sitting room with open fireplace, dining area with adjoining kitchen, a twin bedroom and bathroom with shower attachment over the bath. Sliding glass doors from the dining area lead into a private garden with further seating.

Two designated parking spaces are situated across the footbridge at Porlock Weir, approximately 75 metres walk.

A complete gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Quay Cottage 8-15 April 2016. The cottage setting is wonderful - surrounded on three sides by either the sea or harbour. You can see the water from almost every window. The decor is simple but really homely and we felt really relaxed and comfortable. It's literally a one minute walk to the local pub, restaurant or hotel, all of which are good. There's also a handy fish and chip shop across the way, which was great, so we didn't cook a meal all week except for breakfast. While we were staying a couple of people asked us where we rented it from. Part of me wants to keep it a secret as it's so lovely, but I would highly recommend the cottage!

Other Activities:

Exmoor really has something for everyone, it is a place full of contrasts; dramatic coastlines of plunging cliffs, sheltered bays and historic ports, wide open space and wilderness of the moors as well as the wooded valleys with quiet trails for you to enjoy. Exmoor is a holiday destination of unrivaled beauty and interest.

Situated in a quiet corner of West Somerset, Porlock Weir is nestled in a sheltered spot beneath the moor along the beautiful coastline - where the moor meets the sea.

Porlock Weir is one of the most beautiful places in Somerset. It is located 1.5 miles from the coastal village of Porlock and is in the heart of Exmoor National Park.

The port of Porlock Weir has a long and colourful history but today it's a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, great ale and award winning local cuisine.

Porlock Weir is a great destination for anyone looking for the perfect setting 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.
