We have been lucky to rent and stay at this beautiful holiday home for the last few years and can’t get enough of it. As soon as you arrive you are greeted with a warm and loving home which makes you relax as soon as you enter the doorway. The house is equipped so well with a gorgeous log burner and stunning views and excellent enclosed back garden for the dogs and children. If you don’t want to eat in then the list is endless of excellent eateries around - just a short stroll or you can drive for day trips to fantastic places too - Doone Valley, Lynton and Lynmouth, Valley of the rocks, Tarr steps etc. Can’t recommend enough!
Very comfortable accommodation in a great village on the edge of Exmoor.
We had everything we needed for our Christmas stay for three generations.
Champagne and cake greeted us on our arrival.
We'll be back.
Excellent place to stay, comfortable, spotless and spacious. Great little village, with lots of walks on the doorstep. Many places we didn't have time to visit, so hopefully we'll be returning again before too long.
We have just returned from a great week staying at Maxwelton and Bracken. The house had everything we needed and more for a brilliant stay for 6 adults and a dog. The living room was very spacious and comfortable as were the bedrooms. The wine and cake on arrival were greatly appreciated as was the apple pie made by the housekeeper during our stay. The position of the house is excellent being so close to local amenities in particular The Ship Inn which we can highly recommend.!! Thanks for a great stay.
We had a brilliant time at this property. Although Porlock is very small, there are some great pubs and this house is centrally positioned to enjoy Porlock and the surrounding area. The housekeeping team met us on arrival as we had a shopping delivery come just before arrival time - this was very flexible of them and they were very welcoming. The house seems huge and it’s great to have a separate laundry room when you have four small kids with you. The arrival goodies were appreciated- my son loved the sponge cake and wanted it for breakfast! We found the rooms to be comfortable and spacious. For people travelling with small children it is good to know that the house has a cot, high chair and plenty of stair gates. There is a well-stocked toybox and a piano to entertain. Our youngest boy loved playing with the little tykes car in the garden. We hope to return.
Wonderful location for a relaxing family holiday. Our 4th visit and hoping for a 5th. A comfortable family home with everything you require. Beautiful views and close to the village centre, beach and walks. Highly recommended.
Had a wonderful 4 nights here celebrating a special birthday with my family. There were 8 adults and a baby and the house was perfect. Loads of space and different garden areas. We also had our dogs with us and the garden was really well secured so no chance of them escaping.
The weather was great when we were here and so we spent most of out time sitting around the really comfortable garden table.
The housekeeper who lives nearby was very helpful.
Loved porlock and exmoor. Would really recommend staying here.
