We recently came upon this site on spec and were very fortunate to be accommodated. The site is absolutely spotless with the grass cut every day. The owners are so helpful and fully deserve the 5 star rating. A lovely level site, not at all regimented as we've found on some caravan club sites, and all within such a short walk of the village centre and its amenities.

I visited recently over the bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed our stay, the campsite itself is immaculate and all the facilities are well equipped and extremely clean. The site is walking distance into Porlock which is great to grab some food or a few sherbets.

The area is stunning with some great walks around Bossington Bank.

We will return!

Although we are no strangers to Porlock, having stayed here several times either in rented accommodation or B&B at the Top Ship, this was the first time we had brought our new caravan to Porlock. We came for a week in April and were absolutely amazed at the standards set on this site. Nothing was too much trouble for the site staff and no matter where we went the facilities were excellent - and everything worked!! We will definitely be going there again, several times throughout the summer.

I've been to this site 4 or 5 times over the last few years and will continue to come back. I camp in a small tent using the site as a base to cycle or walk in Exmoor and it is in a superb location. It is a 2 minute walk into the town with shops, pubs and nice places to eat; it is also on the edge of Exmoor National Park and takes minutes to get into the wild, wilderness and natural beauty of the British countryside at its best. It is also next to the sea with coastal walks, but best of all it is quiet, peaceful and very well maintained.

I am surprised to read some negative comments regarding the rules because these help to keep the site what it is: peaceful, clean, tidy and well maintained. The facilities are excellent and cleaned numerous times a day and the site is always immaculate with some of the best kept gardens, which have consistently won prizes and awards. Perhaps those looking for less restrictive rules will appreciate the Site more when confronted with others who have inconsideration for their fellow-campers with excessive noise, bad behaviour and a disregard for the facilities. As a cycle-tourist and camper I have stayed at numerous sites in every area of the UK and this is without doubt one of the very best.

Family business can mean parochial,old fashioned and reluctant to let staff be involved.
Not at this park ! all staff very motivated, and it shows in enthusiasm when helping clients.
The park is imaculately clean and tidy, both showers and grounds. this takes nothing away from the relaxed friendly atmosphere.
The location is perfect, 5 min walk to porlock centre, plenty of local shops and cafes, along with
several excellent restaurants.
We stayed in a caravan aug 2012, and were astounded, because it was immaculate, to find it was being replaced for 2013. we have booked again for 2013. If i owned a park, i would run it
exactly like this.

We have spent a holiday at Porlock Caravan Park the last two years and can't wait to return this year - have just booked for a week in September and were delighted to find that you can now book on line.

The caravans are immaculate and extremely well fitted out with all mod cons - flat screen TV, microwave, wi-fi, etc, etc. The grounds are also beautifully kept and the owners and staff very friendly and helpful.

The village is delightful, brilliant views and there are plenty of walks and places to visit nearby.

All in all, a perfect holiday for us.

We originally only booked to stay for 2 nights however ended up staying longer. The staff are really friendly and all the site facilities are spotlessly clean. The site is very quiet which was perfect for us. The site has wi-fi access which was quicker than my own homes Internet. Not only would I go back again and again, I could easily park up my van and live there!
