Once again porlock was a massive hit The hotel overstream was brilliant stay for the third year. Maggie home baked cakes (ginger cake) as a welcome is worth the visit. It's the most beautiful and welcoming little place with lots to see and visit in and around the area.

This guest house has a very quaint charm, yes the decor looks a little dated but the spotlessly clean rooms, situation and extras far make up for it. As soon as we arrived we were offered tea and homemade cake on the house- which was to die for. Most impressive are the hosts who could not do enough for you,... More

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!

Stayed here for one night, wished we stayed longer. Rooms are nice and quite big, there's tea and coffee facilities. The breakfast room is lovely and cosy, and the English breakfast is nice. 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
