If you’re looking for a holiday beside the Somerset coast, then read our handy guide to help you decide where will suit your needs best.

A traditional village

During a stay in Porlock, make sure you visit the village’s fantastic eateries. The Ship Inn, one of the oldest inns on Exmoor, offers traditional pub grub and classic restaurant dishes, while there are tantalising menus on offer at Locanda on the Weir (previously The Cafe), sat in front of the 13th Century bay.

The unparalleled scenery around Porlock and Exmoor is stunning during the day, but the National Park was designated as Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve for the quality of night sky viewing - meaning it’s perfect for stargazing.

Outdoor pursuits are extremely popular in the area thanks to the town’s proximity to the Exmoor National Park moorlands and hills so, walking, biking, horse riding and orienteering are wonderful ways to discover the area.
