Additional Location Information
Situated in a quiet corner of West Somerset, West Porlock is nestled in a sheltered spot beneath the moor along the beautiful coastline - where the moor meets the sea.
Less than a mile from Dunns Cottage is Porlock Weir, one of the most beautiful places in Somerset.
The port of Porlock Weir has a long and colourful history but today it's a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, great ale and award winning local cuisine.
Porlock Weir is a great destination for anyone looking for the perfect setting for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.
Exmoor really has something for everyone, it is a place full of contrasts; dramatic coastlines of plunging cliffs, sheltered bays and historic ports, wide open space and wilderness of the moors as well as the wooded valleys with quiet trails for you to enjoy. Exmoor is a holiday destination of unrivaled beauty and interest.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Came to househunt but didn't want to leave cottage!
Charming, cosy cottage, beautifully decorated in a seaside way. Beds were large and comfortable and living room amply filled with comfortable sofas and easy chairs. Log fire completed the relaxing atmosphere.
Views to Wales were superb and we never tired of watching the tide come across the fields below. Telescope provided was a nice thought.
Plenty of sitting out space and pretty garden.
As mentioned by other reviewer the cooker was rather dated but plans for new kitchen and bathroom look good.
Fish and chips from Piggy in the Middle in Porlock were good value and delicious. Also the little takeaway place at Porlock Weir was nice for sandwiches and hot rolls.
Would have liked to have stayed much longer.
A great cosy cottage
We stayed at Dunns cottage Easter week and were welcomed by a warm cosy cottage with extra touches such as flowers ,wine and provisions for a hot drink before we unpacked.All the rooms were to a high standard with the exception of the kitchen.Although the kitchen was clean it was old and the cooker from the 1960's was a pain to use.However the owners had left a copy of plans which they intend to carry out later this year which will transform the kitchen and bring it up to high standard of the rest of this great cosy cottage.We would love to return after the changes are made as we had a fantastic holiday.
