Chris and Sue have only taken over this guesthouse two weeks ago but they had already been sourcing their breakfast ingredients from the local stores. They were also more than helpful and welcoming when we arrived exhausted from a long journey, and on the second day when we returned wet and bedraggled from a day's walking. I'm sure the sun...

We found this a lovely place to stay when we were walking the South West Coastal Path. The proprietors were really nice and my room had a wonderful shower with jacuzzi style jets (great after a 9 mile walk!). It is centrally situated and there is a good pub (The Castle) nearby where we had a great drink and meal.

Stayed here overnight as a direct result of favourable online reviews and they weren't wrong. Excellent welcome from the proprietors and really great service . Even changed the location of our room to one with a better view when they discovered that we liked to " stargaze." Breakfast is plentiful and top- notch . You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended

We could not have been made to feel more welcome by the hosts / owners of this beautifully kept guest house. The location is great, Porlock is situated in the heart of Exmoor and a short 15min drive from Minehead. The village has a couple of nice pubs and restaurants so the fact that the B&B does not provide evening... More

This was our first stay at this guest house and we had a lovely time. The breakfast was wonderful with plenty of choice, but needed to be pre-ordered the night before. This could be inconvenient for some people who may change their mind overnight. However, I am sure this would be accomodated, if required. The Guest house is conveniently located... More

We stayed for two nights at Elaine and John's very comfortable B&B. The room was lovely with an excellent view of the sea and surrounding countryside. John couldn't have been more helpful with his advise on where to go and who to talk to. The "rubbish" breakfast was a feast to behold, fresh , well cooked and very good service.... More

We stayed in a twin room which had comfortable beds, good shower and was warm but there's not much room. This didn't matter to us as only staying a night. It's perfectly located in Porlock and was quiet. Breakfast was good- usual Scottish Breakfast. Owners were friendly and accommodating.

We stayed with Elaine and John to see in the New Year and had a wonderful few days. As regular visitors to Porlock, it is always great to discover yet another dog friendly B & B. Delicious breakfast too!
