As a young person living in Brighton, my trips home were vital to my well being. Walking everyday on Exmoor, come rain or shine, is amazingly refreshing. With this in mind my intention was to create a comfortable, creative space where this refreshment can be found. Having worked in hospitality, the experience of creative excellence has inspired me to make my guests' stay special. There are cosy slippers and gowns, lovely linen, a double ended bath and a large separate shower. We also have high quality king size beds in both bedrooms, one of which can be split into two singles, thus ensuring peace and quiet for a good night's sleep after a stunning a country walk. Heating is via the latest Dimplex electric radiators with extra heating in the lounge and bathroom.

Puffins is a ground floor apartment in the centre of Porlock, just a short walk to the local shops, pubs and restaurants. Renovations were completed in August 2015 and although not equipped for disabled guests, there is suitable access. In essence, Puffins is created for guests who like a little luxury with a creative flair. Porlock is a working village set in the heart of Exmoor with walks from your doorstep or just a short drive away. Porlock has a selection of shops for day to day needs as well as art, craft, antique and clothing shops alongside pubs, restaurants and coffee shops. From my studio across the path from Puffins, I sell my artwork and offer art lessons (please contact us for details). We also have a small Gallery on Porlock High Street which showcases my husband David's photos alongside my paintings. We hope to welcome you in the near future. Melody & David More

Booked this trip to have a break from work. This was the perfect short stay for that. Although the weather was not good the home was well equipped and beautifully furnished. Puffins has everything needed for a relaxed time away. Huge bed and comfy mattress....More

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the comfort and lovely decor of this apartment. It was spotlessly clean and the rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had parking on site and could walk metres into the village. It was always incredibly quiet,...More
