The Somerset 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.
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.
