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

Just returned from a weeks stay in The Cottage with a group of friends. Thanks Chris and Clare for a brilliant week. Really welcoming couple, very comfortable accommodation and very good choice for breakfast with local produce. We will be back!

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

We had never been to Porlock before and we came upon The Cottage by chance. The outside looked very pretty but the inside was spotless,welcoming, well set out & the bedroom was amazing. 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!

Walking the South West Coastal Path, a mate and I had our best b&b stay at The Cottage. The greeting was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, bright and modern in decor. The breakfast was excellent - including an enormous variety of preserves. Would certainly re-book if staying in the area again.

Thanks Chris and Clare for a fab mini break. We walked the south west coastal path from Minehead to Woolacombe over Easter and stayed for 2 nights at the beginning and spent our last night in Porlock before heading home. Lovely couple who made us feel very welcome. Perfectly situated, The Cottage provided a relaxing retreat in a lovely village... More

Attention to detail excellent with great toiletries and a lovely selection of teas, coffees and biscuits - even hot chocolate! Impressive variety for breakfast too and a... More
