From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


West Lynch is elegant, characterful and fantastic for that special occasion as it enjoys a games room and an ideal location.

West Lynch, thatched and cosy, has been with the same family for three centuries and lies on the sunny side of the Porlock Valley. Inside, relaxation and comfort abound - it is beautifully furnished with lots of arts and crafts, many sitting areas, 50in and 32in TVs and with facilities such as Wii, games room and indoor pool table. Outside catering is available by an inspired professional chef by arrangement for that special occasion or treat. National Trust woodlands from the former Acland Estates are just beyond the house. These lead to the open moors - with large herds of red deer, Exmoor ponies, the buzzards on the wing and foxes in thir lairs - and dramatic headland of Hurlstone, looking west down to Devon and north to the Welsh coast. Also within walking distance are the romantic villages of Bossington, Selworthy, Allerford and bustling Porlock for year-round needs, as well as Minehead’s farmers’ market. There is surfing at Lynmouth or beyond to Croyde and Woolacombe, and golf at Minehead or the fine course at Saunton for a true test. Horse riding is available for all abilities and entertainment for both children and adults at Lynch Farm and Tropicaria further on. There are also glorious walks, of course, to hidden treasures such as Culbone Church, Butlins at Minehead or Dunster Castle if activities such as outdoor meals, table tennis, croquet and messing about with balls at West Lynch does not suffice. Local beaches are a short drive away, but Bossington beach is within walking distance, with its amazing pebble ridge. Enjoy a stay in this special corner of Exmoor. Shops approximately 1 mile away in Porlock. Nearest shop ½ mile.

    Fabulous house. Lovely decor, loads of room. Lots of charm and very comfortable. Enjoyed a special short break with the family and had many special memories. Enjoyed exploring local area even though the weather was miserable.

    The location of the property was just what we wanted from a holiday. We loved the quirkiness of the old building. However, the house was not well cleaned: furniture had not been pulled out; skirtings and tops were unclean, windows and frames were filthy, all kitchen appliances needed cleaning before use etc Also the place is neglected in some areas: broken banister, catches on windows broken, lime coming through windows, sheets with holes in, garden unmanaged...

    This is a large and comfortable house in a great location. The rooms are large and well furnished. The walled garden is great for dogs and children, we hope the neighbours are used to noise! The pool table was appreciated by all ages. Unfortunately this super property is let down by a lack of maintenance and cleanliness.

    Amazing house full of character and beautiful artefacts. Superb location. We had a lovely stay. Beds were comfortable with quality bedding. The only negative points would be: hot water wasn't working in the back bathrooms whilst we were staying.

    We have just returned from our stay and would love to return after many issues were attended to . The setting and building is superb but oh soo tired , everything is either cracked not working properly or not able to use , very disappointed . Basins , sinks cracked, fridge in kitchen not working , thermostat in tha aga not working , etc etc , but the most disappointing was the non use of the open fires that are shown on the Internet , the only fireplace usable was in the drawing room that was too cold to go in even when the fire was lit so we closed it off. Please please address some of these points as we would love to return when changes have been made . This is not being picky we are just trying to point out where improvements can be made .

    Good marks against all the questions asked. A lovely place chock full of character and facilities. Lovely and warm (Aga and effective central heating), loads of 'antiques'. But don't stay here if you are looking for perfection-kitchen units a bit tired inside, dinning room fire smoked a bit, that sort of thing. We were looking for comfort and character (and open fires) in a rural setting and found it in spades! Looking to go back next year.
