We stayed here with my parents and were very impressed. The rooms were very comfortable and and well provisioned with tea, coffee, bathrobes etc. The guest house is right in the middle of Porlock and only 3 minutes away from an excellent pub. What really makes this place special are the couple running the place, as they make great efforts... More

Simple, clean and excellently run by a very friendly and helpful couple. The beds were particularly comfortable (though the rooms a little warm for my liking). Excellent selection available for breakfast, and the full English was well-cooked and delicious.

We have just returned from our second stay in John & Elaine's wonderful B & B. This stay was just as superb as our first as mentioned in my review of 14th October 2014. We specifically asked for and, were accommodated again in Room 4 which is right up at the top of the house in the eaves. The cooked... More

A truly lovely place to stay. The hosts are extremely welcoming and the bedroom is comfy and well equipped. Everything you need is there from bathrobes and slippers to sewing kits. The breakfast was freshly cooked using local produce. Delicious! Would highly recommend and hope to stay there again soon.

Set in one of the most picturesque places this Country has to offer, this B&B was an absolute joy to stay at. The couple that run the place really care and keep it in an absolutely fantastic condition. Our room was comfortable, warm (it was freezing outside) and equipped with two TVs and Wifi; it was a genuine pleasure to... More

I have to admit that I have never appreciated this place as much as I do now. We have stayed there with my partner and his parents in October 2010. I don't know why I never wrote a review. The place is very spacious, bedrooms are cosy and clean. The owner is a lovely man, wearing a smart shirt and... More
