Perched high above Porlock Bay, looking out towards Porlock Bay and surrounded by National Trust woodland and spectacular Exmoor landscapes, The Crow's Nest bears constant witness to the ever-changing colours of the sea.

With a shingle beach, pub and hotel a short walk down the hill, the picturesque village of Porlock nearby and the sandy beach at Minehead a short drive away, this charming, thatched, end of terrace cottage is a delight. Partially handrailed steps lead to the pretty little enclosed garden with its breathtaking views. Inside, huge stone fireplaces, exposed beams and uneven floors are subtly reminiscent of times long past, but every modern convenience is also provided including wireless broadband.

The sitting-room has a welcoming wood-burner, and the window seat is the perfect vantage point for admiring the scenery. The well-equipped kitchen, finished in light ash units with wicker baskets and a quarry tiled floor, also overlooks the sea. Beyond the oak furnished dining-room with its ornamental inglenook, polished wooden stairs (please take care) lead to the bedrooms, all with equally magnificent sea views, the spacious master bedroom including a compact en suite shower.

The West Country region

Britain's best kept secret...

Peace and tranquillity - cries of curlews and song of skylarks - an ancient beautiful and unspoilt landscape. Picturesque mixture of farmland, forest and open moor - Dramatic coastline - Fast flowing rivers- Pretty villages with thatched cottages


Porlock Weir, a little port a mile West of the main village, played a vital part in the life of eastern Exmoor over the centuries when the sea route was by far the easiest way to and from the area.

A pebbly four mile long beach comprised of a shingle ridge of considerable archaeological and geographical significance. There is fabulous marshland behind the beach which is home to numerous birds. Popular for swimming, fishing, surfing and sailing -although care needs to be taken when swimming, and surfing should only be undertaken by experienced surfers.
