We would like to share that we were here in 2012 and found the atmosphere very pleasant. The room was clean, tidy & comfy. The breakfast was wonderful. Thank you so much Ann & Martin for a very pleasant stay.

Our first stay at Butterflies. Parked outside and shown into a very pleasant, clean room with every facility and large en suite bathroom. Noticeable attention to detail. Excellent breakfast with wide choice of food and plenty of it! A good experience.

We stay with Ann and Martin each time we visit family in Porlock and thoroughly recommend the Butterflies guest house. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable and immaculately clean and the breakfast, cooked or continental, is excellent including home made bread. SC

I arrived at The Butterflies after a hard day walking from Minehead and was greeted with a very warm welcome from Ann & Martin. A lovely spacious en-suite room with lots of extras and a fabulous breakfast meant for a really enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this B&B as a great place to stay in Porlock.

We enjoyed a short break in Porlock, staying at the Butterflies. Ann and Martin made our stay so enjoyable with their welcome, helpful file of walks and maps, the wonderful breakfasts and little extras in the room that all added to our enjoyment. We would definitely recommend The Butterflies as THE place to stay in Porlock!
