Stunning sea views of Porlock Bay, perfect for a romantic getaway!
A Cosy Getaway with Beautiful Views
I had a most enjoyable stay at The Coach House over Christmas . Clean and well-maintained with lovely stunning sea views; I found it cosy, relaxing and well-equipped. It was just a short stroll to the pretty harbour where there are a couple of shops, a hotel open to non-residents, a pub and restaurant. A bus takes in Porlock Village and Minehead. I enjoyed glorious walks along the coast, through woodlands and across the fabulous moorland of Exmoor (easy to find the ponies but deer-spotting needs an eagle eye). I most definitely recommend this property which had the further benefit of being able to park securely right outside the front door.
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.
