This was our fourth stay at Coachman's Cottage and we've already booked for next Spring. Very well equipped and comfortable cottage with beautiful gardens and views. Owners always very welcoming and helpful. An excellent property for dogs with large enclosed yard at the front of the property and large secure garden behind providing plenty of outside space. Good location for exploring Exmoor and local coast.

“Amazing cottage, great location!”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My wife and I signed up for the Exmoor marathon so we wanted somewhere that would be comfortable with our dogs. Well the coachmans cottage is just that! It's a five minute walk into Porlock which has all the essentials but far enough away for total peace and quiet.
The cottage is fantastic, great layout with a very comfortable lounge, nice kitchen with a door that opens into a gated courtyard so the dogs could sun lounge at their will.
Best of all there's a huge fenced paddock at the rear of the property which is totally fenced so our dogs were free to roam in, this also allowed us to get access to the footpaths leading into worthy woods for some lovely walks.
The owners live next door and we never noticed them ( in a good way) but we're very helpful and friendly.
We've stayed in many cottages in Exmoor but this was our favorite and we will be back!

“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 10 March 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We spent a wonderful few days, at the Coachmans Cottage, back in November. The cottage itself is the perfect place, for two people-plus your dog, should you have one.
Beautifully decorated and furnished throughout, the cottage was comfortable, warm and fully equipped with everything you may need. It is situated in a truly lovely part of Somerset.
The owners, Nicky and David, couldn't have been more kind and helpful! There if you need them but also, unobtrusive and respectful your privacy. We look forward to returning to Coachmans Cottage, just as soon as we can.

“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.
