Perfect for two, The Stable Block is an ideal romantic getaway
Perfect short break - thank you
From start to finish everything was perfect. The correspondence and help during the booking of the property to the stay itself.
The Stable Block is a beautiful, well presented cottage with stunning views. An ideal property for two. Cosy and very comfortable.
On arrival we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack which included tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge. The cottage was very well equipped for a self catering stay. Spotlessly clean with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc.
They had also provided a hairdryer, hair straighteners, hot water bottle, shower gels etc.
We came for a few days away for peace and quiet and certainly found it here. The cottage is a short walk from Porlock Weir. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful. We had mixed weather during our stay but that didn't spoil our enjoyment. Two days of sunshine, one of sunshine and very heavy showers and rain the day we left to come home. Exmoor is very different in the sunshine and rain and we were lucky to experience both.
We would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return one day soon.
Thank you for a wonderful short break.
Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.
Porlock Weir has a quaint little harbour and its own unique charm; the port has a long and colourful history. Today Porlock Weir is a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, pubs and local cuisine. On a fine day, the South West Coast Path offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the fabulous views across Porlock Weir and the bay. The coastal footpath links up with many other walking trails including Culbone, home to the smallest church in England. One of the more unusual attractions at Porlock Weir is the submerged forest. At low tide, the remains of ancient tree trunks arise from the grey clay soil. These desiccated stumps are the last remaining evidence of a forest that, once upon a time, lay five miles inland.
