I attended a Mountainbikie course this past weekend and was out most of the time, I had to drive all the way from London to arrive at a lovely room all ready for me. Chris & Clare are lovely hosts and were ready to help at any point. The shower was amazing, I don't doodle in the shower, but I... More

This is a very belated review as we stayed at the cottage at the beginning of our South West Coast Path walk in April. It is great place to stay, the rooms are clean and nice, toiletries are great and it's very central for eating out in Porlock (we ate in the Ship Inn). Breakfast was good and we would... More

Visited Porlock many times before, as we love it, but this was our first time at the Cottage. We were after B&B for one night, The Cottage was available and reviews looked good on Trip Advisor. We weren’t disappointed at all. Chris and Clare made us feel so welcome striking the balance just right as hosts. The room was very... More

Managed to grab a room here after very tiring day driving. Was very pleasantly surprised - lovely bed and breakfast with a very cosy feel. The owners, Chris and Clare, go out of their way to make you feel at home. Our room was spotless, nicely decorated , comfy bed and a lovely bright on suite with a shower to... More

We made an unscheduled stop in Porlock staying at the Cottage and found Chris and Clare very welcoming and helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable, breakfast excellent and the dinner recommendation was ideal. Chris and Clare provided us with some local information and map of a coastal walk which was stunning. Thank you and we hope to stay again.

I have stayed at the cottage for four nights and I must say it was one of my best B&B stays: Chris and Clare are lovely hosts, always with a good suggestion on where to go, what to do and where to eat. The room no. 2, in which I stayed, was very clean and silent. Furthermore, it had all... More

Very comfortable and homely with a really warm and personal welcome from the very friendly owners & a cracking breakfast too. So relaxing we stayed an extra night. Based in the centre of the village so nice places to eat and shop just a stones throw away but still peaceful and quiet. Ideal spot for a break xx thanks :)

In June we chanced upon this B&B and together with our two friends enjoyed a short stay in this hidden gem. All the previous reviews say it all really - Chris and Clare were very welcoming and our rooms were spotless and very comfortable. There was a good choice for breakfast with local produce which set us up for the... More

This B&B is in a very old home, right in the middle of Porlock. The bedroom we got was fairly small, with sloping ceilings, but cozy and clean, and the bed was great. The bedroom had a shower right in it. Very yummy breakfasts! Chris and Clare are great hosts, in a great location on the main street of Porlock.... More
