“our hideaway by the sea”
Reviewed February 21, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

There are no words to describe this previous little cottage. This has been our second time there and as the first time - we lived our stay at porlock weir. The log fire and underfloor heating plus the TV in the bed are definitely the core attractions of the cottage. Of chose not forgetting the main one - the view from the bedroom is breath taking. Every time we need a break from our busy schedule we know that this place will help us unwind and relax. Thank you so much for this little cottage. It's our little piece of heaven!

“Lovely little place”

The Stable Block was a perfect place to relax and unwind for a the weekend. The accomodation was just right for 2 of us, the kitchen very well equipped and te log burner was great. The views from the bedroom are wonderful and the village of Porlock Weir very quiet and peaceful. Oh and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us, fabulous! We'd definitely go back.

“Very special place”
Reviewed January 19, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I booked a long weekend here for my partners 40th birthday & a last trip away before our first baby arrives. And as it turned out we had far more to celebrate as my lovely man proposed to me down on the beach while we were there!

The cottage is perfect, the views stunning & I was really sad to leave!

They provide everything you could need- except tongs in the kitchen for cooking! But I can live with that!

It's warm & cosy & we made good use of the log burner. We loved the reclining sofa & the view from the bed was just beautiful.

It is an easy walk down the hill to the seafront where there are places to eat- only 2 were open at this time of year but we sampled both!

We had no issues with the gates as other people have mentioned- we did as instructed & they worked perfectly.

This is a beautiful cottage that now holds a very special place in my heart & we will definitely be back!

“Cup of tea and a sea view”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

This was a return visit for us and as always, everything was comfortable and attractively furnished. Great to have both bath and shower. The main attraction however is the morning cup of tea in bed, looking out to sea through the bedroom windows. The Stable Block is in a beautiful location, with facilties nearby and lovely walks. And if you go in October, the tea gardens at Bossington and Selworthy are still open!
We weren't able to get internet access this time, but the owner did her very best to sort it out for us and we have had that faciltiy on previous visits.
Can't wait to go back.

“beautiful cottage and location”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Stable Block n Porlock Weir. Its a beautiful location and the cottage has excellent facilities. the view is superb.
The owners next door are extremely helpful and the off road parking a bonus. Its only a couple of minutes walk to several great places to eat.
Will definitely stop here again - there are not many places just for 2 people and who also accept a dog
