Groomscott Apartment is very clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The owners obviously care. The area is very quiet and the location is excellent - great for walking the country lanes around Porlock Village, taking the hikes laid out in Porlock Walks and enjoying peaceful lunches at charming places like Porlock Weir, where time seems to stand still. Porlock Village itself is a beautiful, historic place with an Early English church containing a Crusader effigy and a 1000 year-old yew tree in the churchyard as well as lovely thatched buildings and all the amenities a visitor needs.
The owners of the apartment live next door and are friendly but unobtrusive. Highly recommended.

We had a great holiday at Groomscott apartment. We were made very welcome by Dan and Kirsty and had a lovely welcome package which included wine and chocolates. The apartment was spotless and well cared for. It was peaceful and very quiet and in a beautiful location overlooking Bossington Hill. Easy access to Porlock. We would definitely like to return there sometime.

Friendly owners,not at all intrusive.The apartment was perfect for two wanting a comfortable base for visiting Exmoor.There is a good shower but no bath.The bedroom has two single beds.The property is within walking distance of Porlock but a steepish hill made driving more convenient.Would happily recommend.

The accommodation certainly lived up to the pictures on the website. It was beautifully clean and comfortable with lovely touches such as the welcome basket. It was so peaceful and relaxing there and a great base for exploring North Somerset.I would certainly recommend it as a little haven to get away from the stress of daily living and I must say that the cost of rental was very reasonable and you certainly get value for money and we would have no hesitation in returning at some future date.
