There was a group of five adults, each of us well traveled, and we all said numerous times how much we loved Dunns Cottage - one of the best we've ever stayed in. Everything was just so lovely and homely, it really was very hard to leave. The view was amazing, the kitchen was well set up with everything you could ever need, the garden was superb, the beds very comfortable and so on. Nothing to fault whatsoever. I'm now looking for an excuse to go back!

As always Dunns cottage de-stress, relaxes,and is the place to catch up with your sleep, if you lead a busy life this is a oasis, the new lay out and new bathroom is pleasing and was overdue, the kitchin refit is really good, although I find it strange that the door opens on to the cooker, makes cooking interesting! only down side is there is no clothes hanging in bedroom 2, I'm sure just an oversite,
but its that good we have booked again!
Excellent location and a great family cottage with brilliant fac

Unfortunately our cottage in Porlock Weir was flooded, fortunately we were moved, without fuss, to Dunns Cottage. The cottage is warm, comfortable and very well equiped. The views are fantastic. There's a great walk to Porlock village behind the cottage. Parking is really only for one car.

The cottage is just right for a relaxing break, cosy, quiet & comfortable, log fires are a must just for that "feel good" feeling,Kitchen & bathroom are having a make over which was needed,looking forward to seeing the results next year,
location. good for walking,great sea views, parking off road just a bit tricky, village & shops good for most requirments,nice helpful people,Eating out, Porlock Lapswood rest evening meal is a "must", "Kitnors" tea rooms in Bossington must be the best in the UK, Lunch & Cakes to die for!
Chaple Knap cottages run by chris Lister & mrs Lister where a joy to deal with,nothing was to much trouble,
We have booked our choice of cottage's already for 2014.

Everything you could need and more.

Picture perfect cottage, very comfortable, tastefully furnished and decorated, well maintained - everything you could need with many thoughtful extras. Large, secure garden also well looked after. Two terraces with comfortable garden furniture and fantastic views - perfect for enjoying an early morning cuppa or early evening glass of wine, listening to the owls. Truly, a place you could spend the rest of your days. Porlock is a charming village (approx 15 mins walk) with 2 mini-markets, Post Office, church, pubs & restaurants, hardware, outdoor leisure, art & craft shops and more. It also has a garage - with attendant service!!! We would highly recommend staying at Dunn's Cottage - with provisos - see below.
Cons: We kept to pathways all week with the dogs always on the lead and never allowed to run loose. We were very upset, therefore, to find that, even though our dogs are regularly groomed and protected with Frontline, we had to consult the vets during the week after finding over 30 ticks on them. Ticks are prolific on Exmoor and we have since learned that it is a hot spot for ticks carrying Lyme Disease. This is serious, folks, as it can affect humans too making you ill for years and can even be fatal. Therefore, regrettably, we would not recommend Exmoor as an area to visit with your dogs - as for people, ensure you protect any bare skin. We strongly believe that the Exmoor authorities should be doing much more - not only to publicise this problem but to try to contain and eradicate it.

We had an excellent 10 day stay in Dunns Cottage with two young children. Stunning views, very clean, nicely decorated and really well equipt.
The garden is on several different levels so less suitable for toddlers but a good space to sit and relax.
Added bonus that we could bring our family dog to!
beautiful cottage in an idylic spot with great views of porlock

Dealt with Caroline at Best of Exmoor as we had very specific needs and she couldn't have been more helpful, brilliant customer service! We never used the car once we walked to either Porlock Weir or Porlock. The cottage was even better than it looked on the website. We spent lots of time sitting on the new patio area enjoying the fantastic views. Off road parking was ample for 2 cars and easy and the cottage had everything you needed and more, it even had a full Sky package which would have been a godsend if the weather was bad. We took our very nervous dog who isn't very friendly and doesn't travel well and all locals, pubs, cafes etc were very accommodating and the enclosed garden was perfect. We will definitely book again for next year. Nothing negative to say.
