Groomscott Apartment has been converted from grooms quarters and the harness room into holiday accommodation that is ideal for couples looking for a base for walking and sightseeing. Groomscott is situated on the outskirts of Porlock for people to enjoy all that Exmoor and this traditional village has to offer. Groomscott Apartment is accessed via a private drive for the holiday apartments (shared with Little Court) which is just a short distance from the main road leading into Porlock. From the allocated parking space a path leads you to the apartment. The entrance takes you straight into the open plan living room and kitchen; two steps take you up into the bedroom, which has twin beds and en-suite shower room. The french doors open onto a pretty garden with outside seating.
