Lovely comfy kingsize bed, spacious bathroom with nice products.
Breakfast was really nice. A lovely place to stay.
The Gables is a perfect Thatched retreat and a wonderful place to Stay.
Susan and Dave make you feel very Welcome and Porlock is just so beautiful. Wish we lived nearer.
This trip was booked at the last minute based on previous reviews,we were not let down,we cannot fault the accommodation and village in any way.Will stay again.
Perfect in every respect.
The Gables is lovely cottage located in a narrow road just off Porlock high street.
I initially thought that parking might have been a problem here. However it isn't really much trouble at all. Just around the corner (less than a minutes walk) is a car park with very reasonable charges. A ticket bought early evening will take you through till 11 am the following morning and costs just £1.50.The accommodation is about as good as it gets.The rooms are light and clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom is spotless with constant hot water and a good supply of towels. If (like me) you don't really do breakfast, you might want to make an exception here. The breakfast menu is excellent and the food is perfectly prepared. The couple that run The Gables are friendly and engaging and very helpful. I stayed here with my eldest son (36) and his opinion was much the same. The only minor drawback concerns Porlock itself rather than the accommodation. If you like to eat late, or need to, be prepared for a long drive because nowhere in Porlock serves food after 9.30, even at weekends. That apart, my stay was thoroughly enjoyable and I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

Supurb, Quality Accomodation at Affordable Prices.
I have stayed at the Gables a number of times and wouldn't consider going anywhere else when visiting this part of the country.
A warm welcome awaits you from Sue and Dave, the owners of this beautiful, thatched, Chocolate Box 'Cottage'. The rooms are beautifully presented, crisp and spotless, with a great attention to detail,all for your relaxation and comfort. Breakfast if to die for, with such a choice of everything, from fresh fruit and creme fraich, to a 'Full English' ( and when I say full I really mean it), followed by toast and jam, all served on matching crockery and crisp white table linen. You can relax in your room or enjoy coffee or tea outside in the garden or in the guest lounge. Sue and Dave go out of their way to make your stay exceptional.
