We stayed here for one night. We had a very nice a spacious room at the corner of the house in the front. It had all the amenities we needed. It is not all new, but everything works and it was very clean. The owners are very friendly people and the breakfast was good. We would certainly recommend this guesthouse... More

Just got back from one of my regular trips to Porlock and Overstream. This hotel is consistently excellent - Nick and Maggie are warm and welcoming and will do whatever they can to make your stay a good one. The rooms feel clean and fresh and everything is in excellent order. I particularly look forward to the homemade marmelade. There... More

Two of us stayed for 3 nights and were glad we chose Overstream. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful and make you feel instantly relaxed. The full English breakfast is highly recommended, although there is a great selection of every other breakfast fare you could want! Our room was spotlessly clean. Really cannot fault this great B&B in the... More

A spacious room on the top floor with original character features - it made my day as I always wanted a fireplace in my bedroom. Wonderful views and a huge very comfortable bed.

We stayed here after a bad camping experience in the local area and were very kindly greeted by Maggie the owner. The rooms were spacious, comfy and reasonably priced. The owners Maggie and Nick were very helpful about the local attractions and finally the breakfasts on both days were cooked to perfection, best eggs I have had in a long... More

A very hospitable place, friendly, professional and efficient owners. Upon arrival you're made very welcome, advice and information available, and an afternoon tea helps too. Very easy place to find with a large car park to the rear. Right on the high street and on the A39.

We just happened upon the Overstream as we had no specific destination and what a great discovery. Not only was the Overstream wonderful, so was Porlock! And the hosts/owners, Nick and Maggie were wonderful. We were greeted with tea and cake in the lounge! The Guesthouse is an older building that is updated without loosing it's character and ambiance.

Stayed in a lovely spacious and bright room overlooking the church. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The owners of the Overstream, Maggie and Nick are wonderful welcoming hosts. Nothing is too much trouble to ensure their guests are comfortable. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided lots of information on places to eat and locations to visit. Great choice... More
