Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided. A feature of the cottage is the terrace garden to the side of the cottage affording views across the hills, Porlock village and out to sea. The garden is arranged over three levels – one with a table, four chairs a parasol and barbecue, one with four rattan arm chairs and a parasol and finally one with a rocking bench. The garden has a lovely ‘cottage' feel and from spring and throughout summer there are always flowers to be enjoyed.
