The owners Maggie and Rex are so hospitable, breakfast was wonderful and our stay quite enjoyable. they also recommended a great pub/restaurant, as well as a wonderful walk along the coast the next morning. Wonderful place to stay.

Although we've driven through Porlock for some 25 years we've never stopped at Overstream. Decided to give it a go on Sunday and will definately be back. Despite the gardens being near the road it is still very quiet, the staff are friendly and the cream tea very good. Would recommend a visit.

As title suggests, this place is spotless. Owners are very welcoming and breakfast was absolutely fine. We we're told we were going to be in a small double and it was very small. There was only a few inches either side of the bed, the sink was in the room (i was not told this when I rang to enquire... More

Just perfect in every way. Great location, extremely obliging friendly hosts, well equipped spacious room, super comfy bed, good breakfast, plenty of local information available, welcomed with a cuppa and cake on the house. Couldn't be better.

A lovely B+B run by a very sweet couple. As soon as we arrived (early) we was offered homemade cake and tea on the house - which we highly recommend! Our room was very large (room 3) with a double bed, a single bed and our ensuite. A nice welcome folder was provided which gave us tonnes of ideas of... More

Just got back from my third stay at Overstream - consistently excellent, everything I want from B and B. Welcoming hosts, very clean and comfortable throughout, delicious breakfast [home made marmelade is my favourite] and a very reasonable rate for single person occupancy. I visit Porlock regularly and look forward to my next stay at Overstream.
