Highly recommend The Cottage B&B in Porlock. Claire and Chris couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. Perfect base for visiting Exmoor. Excellent rooms and delicious breakfast. Claire even lent us her walking boots... Looking forward to a return visit. Many thanks.

Top B&B in the centre of Porlock. Highly recommended. Clare and Chris are great hosts, always made us feel very welcome and ready to help. Cozy accommodation, very good breakfast, value for money, great hospitality, central to lots of beautiful points of interest and pubs/restaurants. Thank you Chris and Clare! Alan, Krissie and Zoe!

We had never heard of Porlock until a conversation with my mum about best fish & chips and she said in Porlock. So I looked it up and thought yes that's a bit of me! Unfortunately the fish & chip shop was closed until march but our accommodation was fantastic. I was going to book a rental but I looked...

My wife and I had a lovely stay here while walking the South West Coast Path. The house is beautiful and had a great Xmas tree when we visited after New Year. The room was spacious, warm and immaculate.

Chris and Clare made me feel at home at the cottage! The room was very comfortable with everything I needed. Breakfast was lovely too, with a large spread to keep me going for a long days walk ahead of me to Lynton. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to others of coming this way

We stayed here for one night and everything from arrival to departure was excellent. Chris and Clare were extremely friendly, the room was beautifully decorated and the breakfast was outstanding with locally sourced ingredients making it extra special.. Would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous quaint spot in town. Had a walk around town was like stepping back in time, from the old church to the old pubs and high street. Lots of short or long walks down to the beach or around the headland, perfect place to waste a weekend away with beautiful friendly accomodating host's. Breakfast next morning was a treat, local...

Just spent three nights at this accommodation and it was superb. Immaculately clean, Chris and Clare could not do enough for us. Breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had, with the freshest, tastiest ingredients. We will definitely be coming back, and hopefully soon. Highly recommend The Cottage
