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.

    The cottage is stunning and very roomy. It was warm and welcoming. It has a rustic charm. Everyone loved it and felt very relaxed. The cottage is well equipped. We had an amazing weekend. I agree with comments by others that the rubbish bins outside were full, we did not find a welcome pack to explain anything (the neighbour had to tell us about parking), and the house would benefit from a thorough clean.

    This spacious property is in a great location and is very charming. The overall decor is "shabby chic" ie really lovely but well lived in with lots of nooks and crannies for the children (and adults) in our party to enjoy. The place is packed with lovely pottery and pictures and interesting old furniture, and overall it is comfortable. However, lots of the equipment is on it's last legs and some even borderline dangerous, and the house could do with a good clean. Overall we had a brilliant time there.

    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.
