- Very Good
“Great location & a lovely place to stay.”
We stayed at Wisteria for a winter walking break. Allerford is a great base as it is possible to walk to Dunkery Beacon, Porlock and Selworthy Beacon without using the car and everywhere else is but a short car ride away. Also there is the Allerford Club?! Wisteria is adjacent to the river - the whole area is natural (sound of running water) and with character. The hosts are warm and friendly and the accomodation is very comfortable with everything we needed. We would thoroughly recommend without hesitation and will be back again ourselves for certain.
