Selworthy, Allerford and Bossington being National Trust villages closeby to explore. Porlock is said to have a micro climate which provides for a long holiday season from April to October.
Porlock (with the infamous Porlock Hill!) is situated in the Exmoor National Park famed for its beauty. Heather covered moorland, beautiful woodland, stunning scenery and an abundance of wildlife (including Red deer). There are National Trust villages to explore such as Selworthy and Bossington with their thatched cottages and tea rooms, wonderful walks in the wooded valleys of Horner Water and Hawkcombe to the picturesque valley of Oare, famous for the story of Lorna Doone.

"Excellent central location for Purlock!"
We had a lovely time in Lowerbourne. Upon arrival we found the cottage in excellent condition, tidy and well loved. Great care and attention has been taken to ensure guests have a very comfortable stay. The beds were fabulous, proper bedding - lovely Egyptician cotton sheets and down pillows! Heaven after a long day! The cottage is really well located to enjoy all Purlock has to offer, with great access to shops/pubs etc. Lovely little garden in the back to enjoy sunny breakfasts!

"A home from home..."
Lowerbourne is situated bang in the middle of Porlock but down a very quiet lane so there is no noise from the light traffic travelling through the village. The local amenities are all close by with s… More
Thank you for your review. The cottage is located in West Somerset, approx. 8 miles from the North Devon border.

"Lowerbourne and the holiday in general was amazing."
I went on holiday with a friend and our two children and I can honestly say that we had an amazing week at Lowerbourne.
The house was amazing, it had absolutely everything you could possible need for a holiday. None of us have slept so well for ages, the beds were incredibly comfortable. The surrounding area is breathtaking with plenty to do and plenty to visit. The children spent hours playing on the beach.
We would definitely return to Lowerbourne and I couldn't recommend it hightly enough.
Thank you for your comprehensive review of the cottage. We do not have WiFi/Internet access.
