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

Our two night stay got off to a very pleasant stay when we were warmly greeted by name on arrival. This is a delightful property. It is on the main street and has parking at the rear. Our bedroom was a twin, very spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable. There is a nice lounge available to guests. The breakfast room... More

Chris gave us a very warm welcome & even Bailey the dog came out to say hello. Clare came to welcome us at the breakfast table &... More

This is lovely cottage and very pleasant B&B. It has a nice fresh feel. The upstairs room we had was quite spacious with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very nice. The Cottage is right in the centre of the village so great to wander easily to restaurants and pubs nearby. It would be great to visit again.

Lovely warm welcome from our friendly and very helpful hosts. We borrowed maps, got some great suggestions and had the most delicious full English breakfast with local meats and fresh mushrooms. Thank you!
