“Best B&B I have ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

I would highly recommend this B&B to anybody.

I first visited this B&B back in May and enjoyed it so much that I came back again 3 months later.

Everything was perfect - nice bed, amazing shower, tv, wifi, very clean & tidy, fresh milk was provided to us in chilled flask, we were given very tasty biscuits with our tea / coffee selection, nice views from our bedroom window.

The breakfast was absolutely sensational both times I visited.

Porlock is very nice - Lots of nice places to go for an evening meal.

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 really enjoyed our stay at The Butterflies. The hosts were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was modern and immaculate. The breakfast was lovely! We would definitely recommend this B & B to anyone who wants to stay in this beautiful area. Very good value for money!
