The Gables
Ranked #6 of 18 Porlock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The Gables is brilliant. Sue & Dave brilliant. Rooms and communial area's fabulous. As a global traveller having stayed in most cities in the world, I lowered my expectation, but it was really spotless and gleaming, inside modernised in a contemporary way with great quality touches of cool toiletries, TV, FREE Internet, Miles tea (local tea merchant since 1880's) and local produce at Breakfast. Sometimes its too easy to cut corners. They dont. They also let dogs in, so a perfect weekend of running all over the hills for my dog Cobie. Try the local cider its a knockout, and Cheese shop has amazing chutneys. GO

Room Tip: I stayed in Exford.

We stayed here at the end of July for two nights. Lovely clean and spacious accommodation. Wonderful breakfast with lots of choice. Friendly and helpful hosts. Easy walk into village amenities. Car parking is about 200-300 metres from house.

We have stayed here previously and little has changed since our last review two years ago - great welcome, room very clean and lots of options at breakfast. Our hosts (Sue & Dave) were very helpful and Porlock is a great base from which to explore Exmoor.

Had a fabulous stay at The Gables, booked for 2 nights and stayed for 3!!! Sue Dave & Jess were lovely nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were great, the location was perfect for the centre of Porlock ( a 2 minute walk to High Street). As other reviews stated breakfast was great and plentiful. There was also a guest lounge and pretty garden. I would recomend this to anyone looking for a great B & B, we would use this again & again & again.

We stayed with our dog at this delightful B&B in the quaint village of Porlock. The owner, Sue, really made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast is superb! The room was lovely with views over the garden. Defininately 5 stars!

Only stayed for one night, but the room was lovely, with views over the garden, the welcome was very friendly, and the breakfast was brilliant (just order everything!!) Had evening sunset beers at the Bottom Ship, and dinner at the Top Ship, both excellent.
