There's no two ways about it - Quay Cottage is iconic; if you have been to Porlock Weir, you will undoubtedly recognise this cottage.

We are delighted to offer this deceptively spacious thatched property in the heart of Porlock Weir for your holiday destination. Overlooking the harbour on one side and a private walled garden backing onto the beach on the other, this really is a unique property that just radiates character and charm.

Quay Cottage sleeps up to 5 people; there is a double bedroom, small single bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Downstairs is a large sitting room with open fireplace, dining area with adjoining kitchen, a twin bedroom and bathroom with shower attachment over the bath. Sliding glass doors from the dining area lead into a private garden with further seating.

Two designated parking spaces are situated across the footbridge at Porlock Weir, approximately 75 metres walk.

A cot and/or high chair is available; please request them when booking so we can make sure they are present for your arrival.

Electricity and heating

Local amenities

Porlock Weir is literally on the doorstep of Quay Cottage. There are two restaurants (The Cafe and Miller's at the Anchor), a pub (all three are dog-friendly) and a range of individual shops such as tea rooms, Exmoor Glass and Studio 7 (imported beautiful textiles).

The village of Porlock is approximately 1.5 miles from Quay Cottage and boasts three pubs, two grocery shops, a traditional local butcher, chemist, cash machine, petrol station, hardware shop, visitor centre and a range of independent restaurants, shops and tea rooms.

Many of the shops in Porlock Weir and Porlock are open during traditional hours of 9 am to 5 pm, although hours are often extended during the summer season. Conversely, some shops also reduce their opening hours out of season.

The West Country region

Exmoor really has something for everyone, it is a place full of contrasts; dramatic coastlines of plunging cliffs, sheltered bays and historic ports, wide open space and wilderness of the moors as well as the wooded valleys with quiet trails for you to enjoy. Exmoor is a holiday destination of unrivalled beauty and interest.

There is so much to see and do on Exmoor - here are some of our suggestions. The local Visitor Centres will also be able to provide you with a vast amount of information about the area and suitable attractions.

Porlock Weir

Situated in a quiet corner of West Somerset, Porlock Weir is nestled in a sheltered spot beneath the moor along the beautiful coastline - where the moor meets the sea.

Porlock Weir is one of the most beautiful places in Somerset. It is located 1.5 miles from the coastal village of Porlock and is in the heart of Exmoor National Park.

The port of Porlock Weir has a long and colourful history but today it's a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, great ale and award winning local cuisine.

Porlock Weir is a great destination for anyone looking for the perfect setting for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.
