The West Country region

Porlock is a charming village which lies between Exmoor and the sea, sheltered by picturesque hills and within the Exmoor National Park. The village has an excellent range of everyday shopping facilities with the quaint hamlet and harbour of Porlock Weir nearby.

West Somerset's premier coastal resort, Minehead has a more comprehensive range of facilities and is approximately six miles distance, and the County town of Taunton which has mainline rail connections and access to the motorway network is approximately twenty six miles. For those who enjoy exploring the countryside, the Exmoor National Park, Brendon and Quantock Hills and many other renowned beauty spots of the areas are all close at hand.


Exmoor National Park has everything for your holiday. Beaches, beautiful countryside and the moors. Porlock is a beautiful quaint village and Marley Cottage is centrally situated close to the 13th century church. The lively seaside resort of Minehead is 6 miles north

Nearby are many interesting places to visit, they include Hawkcombe Woods Nature Reserve, Porlock Weir and Harbour, Dunster and its Norman castle, the owl and hawk centre at Bossington and the National Trust's Holnicote Estate. Porlock is at the western end of The Coleridge Way. The South West Coast Path runs close to the village along Porlock Bay. This area also offers sailing, horse riding, fishing, cycling, golf and bird watching.

"Perfect location for walks in Exmoor"

The cottage is well equipped and nicely renovated. We likes especially the small sunny garden and the location of the cottage. It is in the middle of the beautiful village Porlock - Pubs, Tearooms and supermarkets are in walking distance. And, we could start our Exmoor walks directly from the cottage.

"Lovely comfortable cottage"

A very comfortable cottage in the pretty village of Porlock.Excellently furnished, warm and cosy and very clean with all the equuipment that you should need incuding a dishwasher, had files holding appliance instructions and info re refuse etc which was excellent. . Parking was fine for my medium sized Honda Jazz . Well sited, in a very quiet spot within a short walk of the shops with a convenience store opening late which was handy and restaurants and pub if you didnt want to cook. Lots of places to see & visit. We loved it and iwould be very happy to return.
