  • "We had the most wonderful week at Enfield."

    The perfect base for exploring Exmoor. The property is well equipped & warm & cosy. A lovely place to unwind after a day exploring with extremely comfortable beds. Set in a quiet country lane with a short stroll to the shops.

  • "This is just the most perfect holiday & relaxation property."

    It is beautifully presented and cleaned to a high standard. It has all that you need for a long or short stay. The property is very centrally located but is on a quiet street just 5 minutes walk from the High Street that has cafes, restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. It is also within a short distance of several lovely footpaths. There is a lovely garden with this property too. Sykes says that there is no Wi-Fi but in fact there was and it worked perfectly! We got parking outside the property.

  • "Yes, 4 adults stayed at the cottage."

    There was a lot of space and the house was decorated to a very high standard. We all commented that it was like being at home. The owners we would guess use the house frequently. As stated it was home from home, not items being bought for a rented house which most people would never buy. Well done owners for providing first rate accommodation ( a lot of thought had gone into the design and furniture ) at a reasonable price. These were the considered views of all 4 adults.

  • "An excellently and tastefully furnished property, owners have provided everything you could need ,its cosy, comfortable and is in a beutifull part of the world ,it would get full marks if only it had a dedicated parking space, the house is on a narrow lane with parking outside 0ne side of the lane only and we could only park on the whole lane once in the week we stayed."

    To be fair to the owners they did mention they could not guarantee your parking and we found a place every day not to far away so to us it wasn't a big issue on the whole an excellent stay and deal

  • "We liked the house very much and Porlock is a nice, friendly village in which to stay within easy reach by car of several nice beaches."

    A good place to take children, particularly if they enjoy fossil hunting! In fact, all three generations of our family enjoyed themselves. Somerset is lovely and we fully intend to revisit sometime, hopefully soon.

  • "There were 4 adults and we all enjoyed staying at the cottage."

    It was roomy and the kitchen was like a second lounge. There was a good selection of DVD'd which we didn't use on this occasion and the instructions for the use of facilities were spot on. We initially had a problem with the wifi but the owners were very helpful in sorting this out -the rest of the week it worked perfectly. Yes we would highly recommend this cottage it is a very high standard at a reasonable price.

    lots of activities to see and do only draw back is that you have to drive out and about to see them .The person who said that the beach is about 10 minutes away was not telling you the truth more like 35 minutes away down a very long path to not a beach but lots of pebbles no sand .we went in all the pubs 3 in all and the people were very nice and chatty the food was all home made .The road the cottage is on is very tight and winding road with first come and first served parking ,but there is parking at the top of the road .

  • "We found parking to be easier than expected."

    Just took turns with other residents as spaces became available. Only drawback for one of our party was the lack of a toilet on the ground floor, but house very adequately provided with bathrooms and toilets. Very central for various facilities, including shops, pubs for meals and local places of interest.

About the location


Minehead 5.5 miles; Lynton 11 miles.

Porlock is a quaint village, popular with tourists due its character, proximity to the lovely North Somerset coastline and situation within the Exmoor National Park. There are plenty of little gift shops along with pubs, cafes and restaurants to be found and only two miles away, the picturesque harbour of Porlock Weir offers wonderful views across the Bristol Channel. The Porlock Hill takes travelers up a steep, winding road out of the village to the Exmoor Hills, where walkers, horse riders and cyclists will love the open space, where ponies and red deer roam the moors. In 2011, Exmoor was designated as Europe’s first International Dark Skies Reserve, and so this is an excellent base for a romantic evening spent gazing at the stars, where a clear night unveils an abundance of interesting constellations to the naked eye. Porlock offers the choice of sea fishing from the weir, and the reservoirs and rivers of Exmoor are only a short, scenic drive away. Golfers can stay in Porlock and enjoy one of the several courses on the edges of Exmoor, with the nearest only seven miles away. The medieval village of Dunster, where the castle dominates the skyline, makes a great day out, or take a ride on the West Somerset steam train along the coast to the little harbour village of Watchet. A fabulous village location with lots of outdoor pursuits to interest every visitor.
