F30 - Porlock Vale House

  • Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    15 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 30
    ' take the lane west of Porlock for a mile or so and you find this magnificent house dating from the 19th cent., hugely enlarged by generations of the wealthy as a hunting lodge. It is exquisitely positioned with a superb wooded backdrop looking out over the sea as the coast circles gently round to the small picturesque harbour of Porlock Weir.
    Twelve acres of grounds and gardens surround the house, full of mature trees, huge lawns (croquet, play area), small stream and rhododendrons, all managed for maximum wildlife habitat; wisteria cascades from the verandah, with the pebbly beach (excellent surfing for experts) only 250 yards away across two fields (yours to walk).
    Inside, a wonderful mixture of comfort, elegance and space. The curving drive brings you to the heavy oak front door...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Lovely big house - close enough to beach to walk yet nicely secluded with massive grounds. Age range for us - 11 weeks to 59! Everybody had a fantastic time and there was something for everyone. Kitchen although looked "catery" was ideal for cooking for 23 adults, 6 children and two babies! Dining room was ideal for everyone to sit and eat together. Bedrooms were brilliant and ensuites ideal as a mixture of ages, sexes and relationships - family and friends for a joint 50th birthday week! Owners were lovely and very helpful. Couldn't fault the house really as everybody who went said it was brilliant!! more

We went with a large group of friends and had a lovely time. Various ages in our group from 15 to 70+, some with walking difficulties but got on ok and everyone loved the place and found it a great base to explore surrounding countryside, pubs, restaurants and places of interest. My room 15 was spacious and being at the front of the house over looked the garden but no sea view, apart from the en suite window, but this was not an issue as if you wish you can sit on the terrace and stare at the sea view and Wales all day. The shower was a bit disappointing in the en-suite more of a dribble than a shower, but I managed to swap a shower head from room 14 which was a great improvement as that room was not occupied. Although the house was fairly full it was quiet and noises from other rooms i didn't really notice. Everyone was happy with the accomodation and its a short walk to neighbouring villages. We did a day trip to Lynmouth and Linton which was a lovely drive and not too crowded. We...
