Highly recommend staying in the Studio accommodation on Doverhay Farm. The room itself was light and spacious with an incredibly comfy double bed. Tea/coffee facilities, mini fridge and a small T.V are provided and the eco loo and shower are situated in a shed next door. The eco loo was fine to use (think posh festival) and the shower hot; just what you need after a long walk in Porlock. Michael, the owner, welcomed us on arrival and was very friendly and accommodating. It's a shame the first reviewer didn't stay for breakfast (maybe it would have tempered their mood) as Michael's home-cooked breakfasts were great. One of which we ate in the garden whilst basking in the morning sunshine. The farm is a very pretty and peaceful environment to stay in and a short walk from local shops, pubs and cafes. Porlock itself is very picturesque with some beautiful walks and all visitors must try the Ship Inn for dinner. If you’re looking for a relaxed romantic weekend, then this is the place to stay.
Next time we’ll try the Shepard’s Hut!
