There were wonderful veiws from the bedroom and they provided lots of infomation about the area in the cottage. The DVD player was also easy to use and they provided some 2 DVDs if you forgot to bring any of your own as well as some light readingto enjoy during your stay. The duvets were very think and soft so kept you warm during the night. Altogether it was a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the wonderful outdoors.

Comfortable stay in Porlock.
Porlock was lovely! We had a comfortable & quiet stay at The Gables. Louise was friendly & helpful. Breakfast delicious. Floors were squeaky - you get that it old houses - so you can be disturbed by other visitors moving around.
