Nice clean B&B right on the high Street of Porlock with private off road parking. Very clean and well kept. Breakfast was fresh fruit, cereals, jams, toast, full english with good quality bacon and sausage which was very good and plenty of it.

We have just returned home from a lovely 3 night stay in The Cottage at Porlock. Very central to the village with parking at the rear. Lovely comfortable accommodation in the heart of the village. Breakfast each morning was a delight, well cooked by Clare and using the local village produce. Clare and Chris were always friendly and helpful and... More

A lovely welcome awaited us as we arrived and were shown our clean and spacious room. Advice would have been given about the area, where to eat and visit but I know it well and had already booked dinner. Breakfast was excellent with just the right amount of friendly service. We will come again! Right in the heart of the... More

Stayed one night whilst walking the SW Coastal Path with a friend. Porlock is a nice and historic village/small town. Although the A39 runs down the main street it was surprisingly quiet, especially at night. The twin room was a good size, shower-room fine with a powerful shower and decent towels. Chris and Clare very friendly and helpful (Chris had... More

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.

Chris and Clare are the most wonderful hosts, offering all of the comfort and those little touches of luxury that make a B and B holiday extra special. 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
