Marley cottage couldn't be handier for the picturesque village of Porlock, with its winding roads and thatched cottages. Although it is a cottage, it is very spacious and has been beautifully renovated. The furnishings are excellent and tasteful. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need for a stay, including a washing machine and tumble drier.
