We passed through Porlock on our way to a night in Lynton and fancied staying there for a night. On our way back north we parked on the road just 30 yards from the Cottage, which had a vacancy sign showing. What a lucky find. Chris welcomed us at the door with a smile and showed us a room. We...

Booked for a night for a stop over for weekend cycling trip and was so pleased when we arrived. The B&B is exceptional and Chris and Clare make extra special with there kind and considerate service. Planning on going back again with my partner for a small break. Highly recommended.

This was our second visit to The Cottage and it is still the best B&B we have been to and Clare and Chris could not do enough for us and made our visit most enjoyable. The bed was most comfortable and the full English breakfast was wonderful. We will certainly be coming again if we are in the area.

Originally booked for two nights but stayed for four!!! Cannot think there is anywhere better to stay in the area - everything is excellent and Chris and Clare were brilliant. Location is good, parking is available, food is excellent, the rooms are so comfortable.

Bright en suite rooms, gorgeous toiletries, a spacious lounge with a bar to enjoy a pre dinner drink all made for a relaxing and memorable stay. Not to mention the delicious breakfasts... More

My husband and I stayed one night after attending a wedding in Porlock. This B & B is so well situated in the middle of town, right near some lovely pubs and restaurants. Claire and Chris were perfect hosts, the room lovely and the breakfast just what we needed after the night before! Free parking behind the cottage is also... More

The bedroom was very comfortable with a large shower. Claire and Chris were very welcoming and keep an immaculate property. The breakfast was good with - rare in a B& B - excellent coffee. I was very impressed that Chris described the menu in German to a couple of German guests - really thoughtful. I would definitely recommend this place
