Porlock village offers an excellent range of amenities, allowing you to enjoy your holiday without the need to keep getting in the car. There are shops for provisions, pubs for a meal out, a Visitors Centre brimming with information to help you plan your holiday and also Dovery Manor Museum, a free attraction where you can learn about the history and culture of the village. There is also a great playground where little ones can let off steam.
Lace up your walking boots and explore miles of wonderful footpaths straight from the front door, taking you across the rugged Exmoor moorland, beside Hawkcombe stream or along the South West Coastal Path which is accessible from Porlock Bay. Walk to the pretty nearby fishing village of Porlock Weir and along Porlock Bay with salt marshes attracting an abundance of birdlife (on a fine day the views stretch as far as Wales!).
For those who want to explore the wider area, Minehead is only a short car ride away (approximately five miles), as is Dunster with its magnificent castle. In the opposite direction just over the Devon border, yet only twelve miles away are Lynton and Lynmouth which are joined by a cliff-top railway, or discover the beauty of the moor by horse back or Land Rover Safari - the choices are endless.
