“Perfect cosy, pet friendly weekend hideaway”

Stayed for a long weekend with my partner and dog. We can't recommend this cottage enough! The surroundings are beautiful, with a sea view from the bedroom and a lovely paddock behind, where dogs can happily run about. There is also a gate leading to a beautiful forest path, where you can enjoy a traffic free walk to with the village or the weir, as well as linking with many other walks in the area.

The cottage itself was spotless, beautifully decorated and lovely and warm. The heating was extremely effective, with the added bonus of a beautiful log burner in the lounge and even electric blankets either side of the (very comfortable) double bed. The stairs leading to the bedroom were a little steep, but the addition of brass grab rails at several points helped immensely.

The Kitchen is a great size and comes very well equipped, for those like myself who love to cook and bake, and the bathroom boasts a lovely large bath and underfloor heating. The living room is spacious, warm and comfortable, and the bedroom has a beautiful view of the sea and surrounding hills.

Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, whilst being respectful of our space. We were given advice on where to walk/eat etc and made to feel that we could make requests if needed, to make our stay more comfortable (we didn't need to)! I was particularly grateful when they contacted me upon returning home, to let me know that I had left behind some precious jewelry, which was posted to me the next day.

We have stayed in other "Best of Exmoor" properties before, but can honestly say that this was the best yet. Our only regret is not staying longer. We will most definitely be back!

“West Polock, Coachman's Cottage.”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great position to visit Exmoor, and in particular Porlock and Porlock Weir.
Well presented and beautifully clean and well supplied cottage.
I would definitely return and stay in the Coachman's Cottage.

“Delightful property”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Comfortable lounge. Good size kitchen diner with all needs. Bedroom charming. Bathroom downstairs off kitchen, large . Enclosed pretty courtyard. Only minor downside is the stairs, VERY steep, owner has put hand holds, but if you need loo in night - beware! Position of cottage is up owners drive, but little road to Porlock is quite busy with no footpath. Large paddock behind cottage for dogs. Can walk to Porlock through woods behind paddock, or walk other way to Porlock Weir, cute little village.

“Lovely stay, dog friendly”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Had a really nice holiday here with my dog.
The hosts were really friendly and helpful; great to be able to use the large fenced garden. The accommodation is really comfortable in a nice and quiet location.
The area is good for walking; recommend a walk to Bossington or go for a drive to Watersmeet.
Would recommend staying here, especially for short breaks with the dog.

“Pure bliss”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at this lovely holiday cottage in West Porlock.... The owners David and Nicky were so helpful with tips on local eateries and places of interest to visit. The cottage is well equipped and cosy - ideally placed for visiting the Devon north coast and has wonderful views across the sea ... We will definitely return and next time take our dogs with us - it's got to be one of the most dog friendly areas of England! 5 star!
