“A perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This cottage is so comfortable, clean & cosy with everything you could need & the décor is lovely. It is a perfect location for exploring Porlock & the beautiful surrounding area as walks are from the doorstep. We were made very welcome & the welcome gift was the icing on the cake. We will definitely return & would 100% recommend.

“A wonderful cosy apartment”

My friend and I stayed in Groomscott Appartment for our annual week away walking.
We were not disappointed with this lovely cosy Appartment. It is very spacious and comfortable for two people. It had everything we needed. The owners were very friendly and gave us a nice welcome and pleased to help with anything we wanted. You can get most things you need in Porlock and there are two big super markets in Minehead, not far away.
As I was brought up in Porlock it was great to take my friend on some of the wonderful walks which are close by.

The appartment has everything you need. A nice cosy living room with kitchen, a good bed and bathroom and beautiful surroundings. A small walk to Porlock with its nice shops (and home baked cakes), Bossington, beach, moors, etc.

“Very comfy stay”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful week in this pretty little cottage. The weather was just great and we had lots of trips out to explore the area. The cottage is very cosy and it was very warm whilst we were there and at times too warm with the duvets on the bed, quite rare for October! Porlock and Porlock Weir are quaint and well worth exploring. Dan was very helpful and pointed us in the direction of various villages worth visiting. We loved Dulverton and would certainly revisit again. Don't bother with Bridgwater, but Watchet and Minehead are worth visiting. Next time we visit we will be in a right hand drive car as the roads are very narrow and twisty and not to be recommended in a left hand drive!

“Perfect Accomodation, Perfect Setting for a Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Groomscott Holiday Apartments and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others!
The holiday apartment is set in an idyllic setting in the heart of Exmoor, within walking distance to the beautiful village of Porlock and just a short drive to the seaside town of Minehead and other picturesque towns and villages such as Dunster, Watchet and Lynton and Lynmouth.
The Apartment is set back from Porlock and is very peaceful and relaxing - a welcome break from the daily grind!
However it is just a short walk into the village where there are some quaint pubs and restaurants if you want to eat out.
The Apartments are run by Dan and Kirsty who were very welcoming and considerate of our needs, they have a great knowledge of the local area and recommended various activities for days out - however they are not at all intrusive and will leave you to it if you should so wish.
The Apartment consists of a sitting room, small dining area, compact kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. On arrival we were greeted by a complimentary welcome basket full of goodies; the apartment is beautifully decorated in a cream shabby chic kind of look and is well maintained and was very clean and tidy. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
We have travelled all over the world and I can honestly say this is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed; perfect accomodation, in a perfect location = a perfect vacation! 5* highly recommended!
