  • "Enfield is a lovely property situated in quiet area."

    The house was extremely well furnished with plenty of the everyday appliances one would need at hand.The information provided at the property was very helpful. The nearby facilities were within walking distance for those basic essentials. 'Piggy in the middle' provided us with a very good meal and the local bars were very good. There are plenty of enjoyable walks roundabout the area. All in all we very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning to the area again in the near future and if available,staying at Enfield. Thank you to the owners and in particular to the cleaner for providing us with an exceptionally well presented house for us to stay.

    The owner Debbie is a very nice lady and nothing is to much trouble we had a lovely stay and the cottage is perfectly situated for exploring the coast. The Exmoor Coaster is an lovely open top bus that goes just round the corner from the cottage goes right upto Ilfracombe through Coombe Martin and Lynmouth the views in Exmoor were breathtaking and we would recommend you try this as well.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback and for your assistance in regards to sorting the shower out I am so pleased you all had a pleasant time Take care Debbie Property Owner

  • "This was a lovely property; well-maintained, well-equipped, clean and comfortable."

    There was plenty of room for the five of us to comfortably relax in the living room and eat around the dining table. The kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed, even cooking oil and spices, which is really helpful when on a self- catering holiday. The decor was modern and fresh and it was clearly a much loved home. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and impeccably clean. The location was fantastic, a brief walk to the Main Street and lots of lovely country and seaside walks on the doorstep. It provided a great base from which to explore the local area. The owner was friendly when communicating and the process of booking through Sykes was very easy. We would recommend the property to anyone and are looking to return.

    Bless you for the lovely feedback The house is well loved and we do our best for all our guests to enjoy their visit at Enfield Debbie Property Owner

    Thank you for the milk etc and particularly for providing the Christmas tree and decorations. Very thoughtful. This part of the country is beautiful, with some lovely walks. The house is in a perfect position for both the walks and the shops, pubs and cafes in Porlock.

    Enfield is decorated to a high standard and has a very homely feel. The mornings & evenings are blissful sitting out in the garden and the walks around Porlock are very pretty. Everything spot on for a family of 5. The only thing I would ask to be more clear is process around the bins, we were a little unsure. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.

    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.

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.
