Porlock is one of the most spectacular villages along the Exmoor coastline. It personifies the famous Exmoor tag-line “where moor meets the sea”, as the rolling Exmoor countryside drops starkly down a steep hill to the pretty village of Porlock. Visitors can enjoy the spectacular views above Porlock across the Bristol Channel to Wales and there are plenty of self-catering holiday cottages where guests can relax after a long day trekking out across Exmoor or along the miles of stunning coastline. The village is full of charming craft shops and great pubs where you can enjoy local food and beers.
Once settled in the West Somerset village of Porlock, there is so much to do; being on the edge of Exmoor and on the South West Coast Path, the walks from Porlock are exceptional. You can simply enjoy walking either way out of Porlock and you will experience some incredible variations in landscape or for the more intrepid hiker you could follow the footsteps of Coleridge and take the Colerdge Way, all 51 miles across Exmoor. There are loads of local churches and ancient buildings to visit, such as, Culbone Church, the smallest parish church in England.
