About this property

S20229 is elegant, characterful and fantastic for that special occasion as it enjoys a games room and an ideal location.
S20229, 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 and a games room. 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 S20229 does not suffice. Local beaches are a short drive away, but Bossington beach is within walking distance, with its amazing pebble ridge. Fishing around the coast is also popular - a number of chartered boats take off from Minehead and the pier at Llfracombe is often fruitful for those who decide to cast off from there. Enjoy a stay in this special corner of Exmoor. Shops approximately 1 mile away in Porlock. Nearest shop ½ mile.

    "This cottage is in total state of disrepair. Doors with only one hinge attached. Rotten floors which one of our family put their foot through.Drains leaking across the floor. Black mould in showers. Food down the front of kitchen cupboards. Out of date fire sensors, exstinguishers nearly 2 years overdue. Electrical testing not done for 6 years. The list just goes on and on. This cottage was priced as a premium property and would not pass any local authority inspection. This cottage in its current state should not be allowed to be rented."
    David ‐ 31 Aug 2018
    "1950's bathrooms, a single shower in a house with 6 bedrooms is not acceptable in the 21st century. Kitchen adequate but very old underneath the recent paint. Doors with only one functioning hinge. Toilet with a stand-up lamp powered via an extension lead duct taped to the floor. Electrical wiring also mostly 1960's and arguably dangerous in places - socket not properly fixed to the socket box in the sitting room. A number of lights not working.Could be a very nice house with extensive, sympathetic modernisation. Until then, hopelessly over-priced."

    "First thoughts on arrival in a rain storm were what have we done...house was cold, tired and worn, no instructions and half the lights had blown....however we found the instructions next day . Caretaker was helpful and sun came out. From that point cottage was perfect despite needing freshning up and needing more showers. We had some lovely family meals, played badminton and had bbq in the lovely garden across the road and had lovely walks with the dog straight from the door. Worth a stay as long as you are aware its an old cottage with creaky floors, strange plumbing, etc but full of character. Wi fi can be hit and miss. By the end of tbe week we were all sorry to leave"

    "Cooker was a little temperamental and wifi was poor. Everything else was excellent."
