“Ideal family holiday”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

A beautiful Jacobean cottage in a village location on the edge of Exmoor and the sea. Perfect! Our friendly hosts made us and our toddler very welcome and the room was pristine. We had two delicious breakfasts there which set us up perfectly for the rest of the day. The sausages in particular come recommended by our daughter :-)

Porlock is a beautiful place and Myrtle cottage is warm, charming and most of all relaxing. We stayed two nights with a very active two year old. We could not have been made more welcome. The family room is clean bright and comfortable. It has masses of storage space - room for toys, books and an immaculate travel cot. Everything is great order and with lots of little nooks and crannies. The breakfasts are filling, well-cooked and nutritious. Janet and Nigel are gracious hosts and they genuinely take care of you such providing a weather report every morning and fresh coffee on arrival. My advice might be book in advance because I can see this place being very full in the summer. Really nice stay.

Room Tip: A travel cot can be provided so just ask for in advance

What a wonderful place! Very family friendly. Janet and Nigel were lovely and made us feel very welcome. Delicious breakfast and a very good selection too. Local products included! The family room was delightful with huge box of toys for the children to play with. We highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Porlock or surroundings.

Only stayed one night but Nigel and Janet made us feel so welcome. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was extremely well cooked and there was a full selection of cereals, fresh fruits and yoghurts available. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in Porlock.

We have stayed in many B&B's over the years but none better than Myrtle Cottage. Porlock is of course a beautiful village and this cottage in the heart is stunning from outside and superbly equipped and spotlessly clean inside. Nigel & Janet are wonderful hosts who looked after our every need...and served up a wonderful breakfast. In top of all that - it is fantastic value.

What a find!

Myrtle Cottage is a beautiful character filled thatched cottage situated in the pretty village of Porlock. Hosts Nigel and Janet gave us a friendly welcome and we were made to feel right at home in their comfortable house. Breakfasts were fabulous - good local produce is used and the Miles coffee was fab. We had to buy some from the local store to take home! If you are walkers - there is plenty on your doorstep. The Ship Inn is a few steps up the road and we enjoyed it so much that we ate there both nights - good casked ales and wonderful food. Will we be back? You bet! Look forward to a visit in the Spring. Keep up the brilliant work Janet and Nigel :)

Room Tip: Room (#2) was well appointed, it is on the road side but was quiet. Good parking on site too.

Myself and my good wife Julie visited this wonderful place in eraly November - how delightful, a magnificent entrance takes you into a magical trip through history - an amazing house seeped in history and a sense of days gone by - the beaming smiles of hostess Janet and husband Nigel deliver an invisible welcome before a word is spoken. A magical spot in an already beautiful corner of England - an ideal base to explore Exmoor and beyond.

Clearly a bed and breakfast to be experienced and enjoyed, soon and often.

Many thanks to Janet and Nigel for a wonderful welcome and fantastic time - we will most definitely be back!!!

Sean & Julie,
