Porlock, Exmoor National Park, England
Perched high above Porlock Bay, looking out towards Porlock Bay and surrounded by National Trust woodland and spectacular Exmoor landscapes, The Crow's Nest bears constant witness to the ever-changing colours of the sea.<BR><BR>With a shingle beach, pub and hotel a short walk down the hill, the picturesque village of Porlock nearby and the sandy beach at Minehead a short drive away, this charming, thatched, end of terrace cottage is a delight. Partially handrailed steps lead to the pretty little enclosed garden with its breathtaking views. Inside, huge stone fireplaces, exposed beams and uneven floors are subtly reminiscent of times long past, but every modern convenience is also provided including wireless broadband. <BR><BR>The sitting-room has a welcoming wood-burner, and the window seat is the perfect vanta...

We were looking for a short break away from the city and ideally by the sea as a mini retreat. Porlock Weir was a perfect location and the Crow's Nest was a perfect play to stay. We could only stay a couple of nights, which is shorter than the normal minimum stay of 3 nights; but Chris and his team helpfully and speedily got back to all my queries and organised for us to stay 2 nights only and to get into the cottage a couple of hours earlier than would normally be allowed.

The cottage was very well-equipped and the rooms were spacious and comfy. It was really easy to both work and relax. Every room had a view of the sea out to Wales, and every evening we'd stand outside and listen to rolling sound of the waves.

Porlock Weir is tiny, and friendly. The rock beach is amazing in its colours (but the algae can make the rocks slippery, so wear sturdy boots and watch your ankles if you walk the beach.) We also spent some fun times in the Ship pub, which we'll definitely be...

About the neighborhood
Porlock Weir, a little port a mile West of the main village, played a vital part in the life of eastern Exmoor over the centuries when the sea route was by far the easiest way to and from the area. <BR><BR>A pebbly four mile long beach comprised of a shingle ridge of considerable archaeological and geographical significance. There is fabulous marshland behind the beach which is home to numerous birds. Popular for swimming, fishing, surfing and sailing -although care needs to be taken when swimming, and surfing should only be undertaken by experienced surfers.
