It offers easy access to coast and moor, with excellent opportunities for walking and site-seeing. Tanglewood is a detached cottage on a quiet track in Hawkcombe Woods, a National Nature Reserve - so it provides peace and seclusion, while being within an easy walk of the village.

Outside, there is a raised terrace with table and chairs that overlooks the garden, as well as a table and chairs at the bottom of the garden, from which you can listen to the rush of the stream. Up to two well-behaved dogs allowed downstairs and the grounds are fully fenced so that they can play. There is an additional £25 charge for up to two dogs. Tanglewood is usually booked from Friday to Friday, although we may be able to offer flexibility on change over day at Christmas - please contact us for availability and price information.More

About the neighbourhood
Tanglewood is within walking distance of the Exmoor National Park village of Porlock, with its shops, tea rooms and restaurants (for lunch, we particularly like Mrs Jackson Tea Room or The Big Cheese Shop; for dinner, you might try The Lapsewood, The Ship Inn, or fish and chips from Piggy-In-The-Middle).
How to get there
From Bristol, you can take the M5 to Bridgwater and than the A39 to Porlock. (From London, you can either start your journey on the M4 or on the M3/A303.)
