This must be one of the best places we have stayed! Fantastic welcome, comfy bed, really lovely decor, and absolutely spotless. Excellent breakfast on top of all that. The house is really lovely and Sue & Dave do a great job. The only downside really..... we could only stay 2 nights!! I would highly recommend this for anyone visiting the area. We will definitely be back in the future.

For my 80th birthday my son and daughter-in-law took me to Porlock where I had lived during the Second World War. They could not have chosen better than "The Gables" to stay. The house is beautiful,the welcome very warm and the breakfasts are to die for! I highly recommend a stay here.

We are just on our way back from a fabulous visit to Porlock. We stayed at the Gables B & B and have to say we loved it. Warm welcome, very clean, charming building and to top it off an amazing breakfast! I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

The Gables is a beautiful house just behind the High Street in Porlock. Gorgeous garden, and clean pretty well-appointed rooms that were 'just right'; not too kitsch and sweetly faintly smelling like flowers and the country-side. This B&B embodies all the best England has to offer.
Do not hesistate! You will be warmly welcomed, with wit, a great omelette and restaurant and walking tips.
I was traveling with my female flatmate and we had great laughs, and enjoyed the homely and fun atmosphere. Simply perfect!

A wonderful welcome greeted us when we arrived at this gorgeous Porlock Cottage - superb room, facilities and an excellent breakfast added to a relaxing weekend. The cottage has a beautiful garden and lounge along with plenty of local information books and guides on what to do as well as being at the bottom of a short walk to beautiful Exmoor.
