I stayed on the ground floor in a twin bedded room, I was given the impression by the owners that it was a" all singing and dancing " room. So I booked for 3 days. Yes it was clean and tidy, the shower room was tiny,however I could have put up with that,I had gone out for the evening and... More

Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for our hosts and they truly seem dedicated to providing you with a first class experience during your stay. It was the attention to detail, such as... More

Good location in the centre of the village of Porlock with on site parking. Tea and cakes on arrival (on the house). Great breakfasts and comfortable rooms coupled with good service and value for money.

We just had a tea and scones here. The tea was generlously enough for two cups per person. The scone are just how they should be. Well made. The terrace gives a nice view on the street and is tranquille. The service informal.

We stayed for just one night in this lovely old hotel. We were allocated room 6 which was spacious and light. The bed was very comfortable and the room nicely appointed. The hotel has some rather quirky features including an "antique" 2-person lift to all floors. All areas of the hotel were well looked after and cleaned to a high... More

Set in a senic and lovely area, with good decor, and central for Lynton and Lynmouth, Minehead, Selworthy and Exmoor. The B and B has good Off Road parking, and Nick and Maggie were perfect hosts. Perfect for a family break with lots of walks and perfect countryside all around
