It's difficult to find anything to fault with this excellent B&B centrally situated in the village of Porlock. Did I say difficult? Perhaps 'impossible' would have been more accurate! The owners, Nick and Maggie, have gone out of their way to ensure that the simple but comfortable rooms are furnished with everything a guest could need. The icing on the... More

This guest house is really lovely. Its spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and a great breakfast. The hosts Nick and Maggie were really friendly and knowledgeable but not in your face. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and a piece of cake which we had on the front lawn. There is plenty to do in the local area.... More

Excellent hospitality, the hosts were most welcoming. Our room was spacious and the bed lovely and comfortable. The cooked breakfast was very tasty, the afternoon cream tea served in the front garden was superb, especially the scones, which were to die for.

This is an excellent stopover point in Porlock to enjoy all the hiking trails from. The guest house has maps of the area, as well as very knowledgeable owners who were happy to point us in the right direction. The breakfast is included and is well worth it. Overall, this is one place we would visit again anytime!

The owners are lovely people, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. They can even do a pack lunch on request, which consists of... More

The couple who run it are lovely hosts. The breakfast is delicious. Home made jams are included and they are outstanding. Not only is this guest house everything a guest... More

Very pleasant surprise. Room was very cosy. Very clean and everything you needed for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was excellent with a selection of anything you wanted. The owner's make you very welcome with nothing being too much trouble. Definitely be returning when in the area. A lucky find.

Our stay at Overstream was indeed 'pleasant enough. Pros: The host is very friendly and helpful, and as others have noted in their reviews, the place is spotless! The bed and pillows were comfy. There was ample wardrobe/chest of drawers space. Breakfast service is quite speedy. Cons: There was only approx 1 foot of space either side of the bed,... More
