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

I arrived at the B&B having walked along the coast path from Minehead. It was well located and easy to find in the high street in Porlock. I was made very welcome by Chris and Claire and shown to my twin-bedded room. It was very spacious and had a sofa as well as a bath. Everything was clean and fresh,... More

Our second stay at The Cottage was perfect in every way. Delicious breakfast from local sources, very comfortable room with an invigorating shower and wonderful hosts. Quaint relaxing lounge with nice books. Looking forward to our third visit soon.

We stopped in on our way to St Ives. The Cottage is well located and the owners are very friendly and gave advice with regards to eating and drinking in the town. Rooms were comfortable and even though we had one on the front road, the double glazed windows made the room whisper quiet. The shower was steaming hot and... More

We have stayed in 4 Porlock bed and breakfasts and the owners here made The Cottage the most welcoming of them all! We had a lovely spacious twin room. The old cottage is quirky and homely and they even accommodated our off menu breakfast requests. Would recommend to all!

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
