Weekend break

I had a very pleasant weekend, landlady, Gill, was most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

The homely atmosphere and uniqueness of the Seaview gets my vote. Ted the labrador was also very welcoming. I highly recommend the Seaview, it's a great place to stay and to explore the beautiful surroundings.

Lovely location

We spent a lovely weekend in Porlock and are already looking forward to seeing more of Exmoor.

The B & B was nice and central in the middle of the village with an old pub serving good food just behind it. We were greeted warmly and given handy tips about the area. The room was nicely decorated with personal bits and bobs and it had an ensuite bathroom with a shower. The room could have been a tad cleaner and fresher but it was perfectly comfortable.

The full English breakfast was generous with locally sourced items but the sausages were seriously undercooked.

You'll only get a peek of the sea from some of the top windows as it's about two miles away (and a stony beach at that) but the village is charming and there are lots of lovely things to see and do in the area. Generally, recommended.

A perfect runners retreat for the weekend!

My girlfriend and I made a last minute booking for a weekend away in Porlock as somewhere new to visit with coastal paths and green hills so that we could incorporate an 18 mile training run into our break - we weren't disappointed.

We were made fantastically welcome by the owner of the B&B - Gill is one of the friendliest and most helpful people you could hope to meet; nothing was too much trouble, the breakfast was fabulous and filling and I was even able to put my compression sock ice packs in the freezer ready for after our run. The B&B was cosy and it was extra lovely having a log fire burning at breakfast in the morning. The Top Ship pub is a minutes walk and serves good sized portions of wholesome food - we went there both nights for ease and were not disappointed. Some great beers available such as Proper Job and Otter so I was very happy.

A nice example

The room was quirky and small but really comfy.

The breakfast was good with an excellent range on offer and Gill made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived.

Just Right!

A comfortable room in a quaint house.

'Hotelier' as friendly & charming as on a previous stay with nothing too much trouble. I was very well looked after from start to finish - comfortable bed, an excellent breakfast & what a range of items to choose from. Worth every penny & looking forward to staying again in the not too distant future.

Like staying with friends or relatives

Gill was lovely.

Very helpful and well organised. We booked at the last minute and had to take the only room available which was a small twin room at the top and back of the house. However it was spotlessly clean and met our needs. Breakfast was interesting and informal with all the guests sitting around one large table. We were fortunate to be sharing the table with other mature guests who were happy to chat and exchange information over breakfast. Gill enhanses the illusion of being within an extended family environment by learning and addressing everyone by their first name. After dropping luggage at the door, car parking is a short stroll away in the village hall car park.
