Relax in Style

The perfect base to explore the magic of Exmoor

The House

All our rooms are furnished and finished to a high standard. Our English breakfasts are cooked to order using the best local produce we can source and evening dinner is available for guests every day except Sunday. Ample parking and easy access for those walking the Southwest Coast Path.

Evening Dinner

To book dinner on your day of arrival just let us know your choice from our menu the day before you arrive. Once here you may pre-order evening dinner from the menu in the hall after breakfast. As we don’t offer a dinner bed and breakfast rate you’ll always be free to explore other dining options in and around Porlock….and if you don’t know the area we’ll be happy to make a few eating suggestions you might like to try. Please note…we only cook dinner for house guests and we don’t offer any lunchtime eating options.


Breakfast happens anytime at your leisure between 8 and 9.30. Although we’re familiar with offering gluten free etc we’d appreciate the heads up in advance about any special dietary needs you might have.



We welcome children aged 10 years and over.

The Gardens

There is plenty of space in the garden to have a wander….gardening tips always appreciated…!

The Dogs

For the benefit of all our guests dogs are not permitted in the House. We can however can lodge your dog in our clean safe and secure external enclosure…call in advance to check availability. Our doghouse is ten pounds per night and has a food prep table and a fresh water tap…there’s even a radio to keep the hound company! Please note small house/lap type dogs are not best suited to our doghouse…medium and larger breed dogs who are happy in their own company seem to settle and adapt very quickly. Your dog may use our gardens for exercise but of course owners are responsible to clear up the doggy do-dahs. If you’re bringing your dog please ensure he’s kept under your control at all times….and although its an obvious one please don’t leave him behind when you go out….enjoy your walk!

The Rest

The gravelled area in front of the house offers ample free parking.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the house or anywhere in the grounds. Please do not book to stay with us if you or any member of your party is unable or unwilling to forego smoking whilst on our property. Enforced Curtailment policy will be invoked if this rule is not adhered to.

All bedrooms are on the first floor accessed via a staircase which has 20 stairs and two mid-point 90 degree returns.

If you’re cycling we have a secure lock up area for your bike…please let us know in advance if you require this facility.

Mobile phone reception is generally good from most service providers.

We don’t permit caravans and mobile homes on site.

Its a given that we always expect guests to be considerate to others around them.

Cancellation policy. So long as you book direct there’s no penalty to pay if cancellation is advised by phone before 10am 3 days before commencement date of your stay. If booking through an agent their cancellation policy / terms may differ from our terms.

Wireless is available throughout the House although the signal is better downstairs in the guest lounge than in the bedrooms….ask for the password at check-in.

You’ll find a leaflet display area in the hall..have a look as there’s lots of attractions to see. There’s information on places of interest that you might like to catch a bit further afield…Agatha Christies Holiday Home “Greenway” is a good example….although its 75 miles away its a good day out…so long as you like driving! If walking is your thing we have detailed guides and walking suggestions for our local area.
