Set within Exmoor National Park, this property offers guest to enjoy the natural wonders of the whole area.

In the village of Porlock on Exmoor National Park and nestling between Porlock Hill and the sea, 1 mile, these converted ships mews, formerly stables, and detached dormer bungalow offer sea views of Porlock Bay and make an excellent holiday location to enjoy the natural wonders of Exmoor and the dramatic coastline in this region. There is superb scenery and walking on the South West Coastal Path or inland on the moors, and many places to visit to make a memorable holiday. The Victorian villages of Lynmouth and Lynton, famous for the Watermeet Gorge (NT), valley of the rocks and the funicular cliff railway are well worth a visit, or looking towards Minehead, you can go back in time on the scenic West Somerset Steam Railway, or visit the enchanting medieval Dunster Castle (NT), with its beautiful terraced gardens, Deer Park and Mill making for an interesting day out. Nearer home you can wine and dine in the owner’s adjacent public house and restaurant, the 13th-century Ship Inn, or enjoy the fine selection of unusual shops in this pretty traditional village. There is also fishing, golf, horse riding and cycling all available, or further afield the resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Woolacombe are well worth a visit. Shops 200 yards, pub/restaurant 100 yards.

All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen/bedroom area with double bed. Shower room with toilet.

Electric central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Electric hob. Combi microwave/oven/grill. Shared garden with sitting-out area and furniture. Parking (1 car).

    Trouble was cooking facilities inadequate, small two ring portable stove which had to be used away from tight sink area and would have steamed up studio had I used it. Only one of everything so that I bought extra odds and ends. N0 wifi which most offer so couldn't use mobile phone.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the ships mews. The ships mews was lovely. Cozy and warm with a pub on your doorstep. Porlock was beautiful and was central to a lot of places to visit. Our doggie loved it as much as us. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    Great location for walks and friendly pub next to it, food was fantastic. Cobwebs and spiders in the basic bathroom. Didn't look like it had been cleaned for months. Pull out bed was stained and filthy. Smelt damp.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We aim to have satisfied guests and are disappointed by your review. It is a great shame that you did not let me know of any issues when we would have had the opportunity to do something about your observations and put any issues right. The bookings we have had in Mews 1 were for couples so unaware of why the sofa bed was used as a bed? We have many happy returning guests who feel that for an open plan Apartment, the Mews is well equipped and comfortable.

    the room looked better on the photos than we felt it was. it was difficult using kitchen electrical equipment due to position of sockets. there were many good places to eat in the village so we didn't need to cook. while we were there the cost of the room was more than those in the Ship pub which included breakfast

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The Mews is an open plan studio apartment (30x15ft), and, as such, is a well-equipped property with many happy and repeat guests. We are sorry to hear you thought a room in the pub was better value.

    Great location although opening the front door onto the pub car park is a little strange. Very handy for sitting in the garden a little walk away across the car park with a pint. Couple of issues that the owner fixed very promptly

    Lovely property just right for two for a short getaway. Great location in a lovely picturesque village on the edge of the Exmouth national park.

    Overall we found the accommodation very comfortable and centrally placed for many neighbouring visits. Our only minor complaints were that there was no proper hob to cook on, only a two plated plug-in unit which did not give you a lot of heat! Also, the fridge was very noisy and had to be switched off at night to enable us to sleep. Having said all that, there are some excellent eateries in the village if you did not want to cook.

    Pollock is wonderful. This cottage needs some attention to the basics. Supplies are absolutely minimal including linen.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We want everyone who stays to enjoy our Mews Apartments. To this end each guest is asked to call us before arrival where we are explicit about what is included. We provide linen and make up the double bed, as described in the details. We also additionally leave a couple of towels - we always advise guests to bring more of their own if required. We also leave one tea towel, again we advise on this in the pre-arrival conversation. So we unsure about the comment made about linen. We leave soap, loo roll and some basic cleaning things - this is also described. We leave tea, coffee and biscuits to have on arrival as a welcoming gesture. This is generally appreciated as are the Mews and location by the vast majority of our guests.
