“Every box ticked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I stayed here for a long weekend with some hiking friends. Everything was as good or better than we hoped for. We were warmly welcomed and given helpful advice about local eating choices. Our rooms were comfortable and spacious with a good selection of hot drinks to make in the room and everything was spotless. Breakfast was served at convenient hours and the full English was...well full.
Overstream is in a great location in this attractive village which has a surprising number of shops and eating places. For walkers the bus service was a convenient way to get to our start points and the local pubs were equally convenient as finish points

My wife and I both love Porlock and the surrounding area and have been there on and off for around 10 years. Our first few visits were camping, followed by self catering accommodation for several visits.
For a change we decided on B & B accommodation for 7 nights this year, and were not disappointed in any way. Lovely breakfasts, spacious room, and the excellent attention to everything by Nick and Maggie. We both wish Nick and Maggie the very best for the continued success of their enterprise. The welcoming cuppa and cake after the drive down the busy M6 and M5 were most acceptable.

Stayed at the Overstream for 4 nights on a walking holiday from the 1st August. Could not fault it. Everything was spotless, the breakfast was first class and the packed lunches with the superb home made flapjack keep me going on the walks. Maggie and Nick could not do enough for us.I highly recommend this guest house that is situated right in the heart of Porlock.

It is hard to find sufficient praise for Overstream - it is so much more than your average B&B. It is very clean and comfortable and most welcoming. Maggie and Nick did everything they could to make our stay an excellent one. They are the best of hosts.The breakfasts were wonderful, (perfect poached eggs every time!!) and were much needed as we were walking the Coleridge Way with friends. Packed lunches are also available on request and £6 provides you with a wholesome and delightful lunch accompanied by Maggie's delicious cakes and flapjacks. The 8 of us who stayed there as a group thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be definitely returning soon. Very good value for money and situated conveniently amongst all the amenities of Porlock.

Room Tip: We had a king size room on the 1st floor -lovely and airy in very hot weather

Stayed 4 nights from 18th July with a group of 8. This guest house cannot be faulted. Well appointed, well decorated and Spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were tasty and very generous with a wide choice. Even the 3 conserve choices were made by the hosts.Packed lunches for our walks along the Coleridge Way, were fantastic. Maggie's cakes and flapjacks are to die for and different each day. Nick and Maggie clearly enjoy their chosen occupation and are the ideal hosts - friendly, patient, flexible, very well organised and attentive without being intrusive. Overstream is without the shadow of a doubt the best guest house Jane and I have stayed in, and the tariff is very reasonable indeed.

Stayed at the Overstream for one night on our trip to southwest England. We found the room very cosy and nice, spacious so that our 2-year old son could play in the morning. Breakfast was great!! We would like to come back for a fewi more nights, there are so much to see in Exmore. A very friendly and affordable accomodation that we can recommend to everyone!
