The Gables is truly beautiful. The attention to Detail in the rooms and garden is superb. The rooms are tastefully decorated in a charming way that reflects the age of the building. It has great facilities too - tea/coffee, bottle water and biscuits even down to a really good hair dryer. My room had a vast bathroom with lovely touches... More

I have stayed at many B&B's in Exmoor but this really takes some beating. Lovely owners (Sue and Dave), well decorated, spotlessly clean and a breakfast that is amazing - fresh fruit (lots of it), cereals, loads of jams, marmalades etc and a full fry that is simply wonderful with as much toast, tea/coffee as you want. Stayed with my... More

You won't find a better bed and breakfast than this. It's the most beautiful building in a very picturesque village, breakfast was great, everyone was very friendly and we had a lovely room. It was a great base for some wonderful walking. Highly recommended. .

Had another excellent stay at the end of March 2014. Sue was a very welcoming host and made us feel as though we were at home. The Gables is perfectly placed in the centre of Porlock Village and the rooms within in it are clean and spacious, as well as tastefully yet minimally decorated. The breakfast was magnificent and was... More

Just got back from a weekend stay at The Gables and once again we got five star service. Rooms always presented beautifully, breakfast you couldn't ask for better or more choice and as always made to feel right at home by Sue and family. Looking forward to our next stay hopefully later on in the year.

This must be one of the best places we have stayed! Fantastic welcome, comfy bed, really lovely decor, and absolutely spotless. Excellent breakfast on top of all that. The house is really lovely and Sue & Dave do a great job. The only downside really..... we could only stay 2 nights!! I would highly recommend this for anyone visiting the... More

For my 80th birthday my son and daughter-in-law took me to Porlock where I had lived during the Second World War. They could not have chosen better than "The Gables" to stay. The house is beautiful,the welcome very warm and the breakfasts are to die for! I highly recommend a stay here.

We are just on our way back from a fabulous visit to Porlock. We stayed at the Gables B & B and have to say we loved it. Warm welcome, very clean, charming building and to top it off an amazing breakfast! I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

The Gables is a beautiful house just behind the High Street in Porlock. Gorgeous garden, and clean pretty well-appointed rooms that were 'just right'; not too kitsch and sweetly faintly smelling like flowers and the country-side. This B&B embodies all the best England has to offer. Do not hesistate! You will be warmly welcomed, with wit, a great omelette and... More
