The property

Nestling at the foot of the famous Porlock Hill is the attractive village of Porlock, with old thatched cottages and a good selection of shops, cafés and restaurants, between the wild moorland of Exmoor and the sea.

Porlock Hill, a 25% (1 in 4) incline, was first ascended by motor car in 1900 by a noted rally driver of the time, who won a £50 wager in the process - there is now a very scenic toll road avoiding the hill!

In Porlock, tucked away in a narrow lane behind the 13th century church, Marley Cottage is in a secluded yet central location.

Dating back to the late Victorian era, this end-of-row cottage was originally built for local boat builders and their families.

Inside, the cottage is stylish and welcoming.

Furnished to create an inviting holiday home, the open-plan living/dining room, which has a wood burning stove, has comfortable sofas and smart oak dining table/chairs.

Upstairs are three bedrooms; two pretty double rooms and a twin, sleeping up to a maximum of five guests.

To the front is a small south-facing sitting-out area, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, across which, in typical nineteenth century fashion, the adjoining cottages have right of access.

Whether walking, cycling, riding, fishing or simply exploring Exmoor and its pretty villages, Marley Cottage is ideally placed to enjoy this beautiful part of Somerset.

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.
