This property is well suited to families or couples looking for a fuss-free getaway in the lovely village of Porlock. Centrally located in the village, you have a great selection of restaurants, pubs, cafes and tea rooms all within easy walking distance, as is the village bus stop which means you do not need to have your own car to make the most of the location - quite a rarity for Exmoor! The property consists of a large double bedroom (with king-sized bed), two single bedrooms and family bathroom (shower over bath) upstairs. Downstairs is the well-equipped kitchen and an open-plan dining and sitting room, with patio door leading down a flight of steps to access the private courtyard/garden to the rear. Archways is part of a development which was built in the 1990s, therefore benefits from double glazing and modern heating.
Mountain biking and horse riding are ideal ways to see all that Exmoor has to offer, but you don’t have to be energetic to get the most out of this beautiful area of the country. Take a trip by steam train on the longest privately owned railway in the country. Visit the many properties owned by the National Trust in the area, including Dunster Castle, the Holnicote Estate, Coleridge Cottage, Arlington Court and Knightshayes Court and don’t forget all those wonderful tea gardens, pubs and restaurants.
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.
