Ivybank is lovely, homely cottage in a beautiful area. We have stayed in Porlock many times and were really happy with the location The veranda was a real bonus as the weather was good. We loved eating out there with such a lovely view. The dogs loved exploring the garden. The art works on the walls was a joy to see. Just loved the cottage and can't wait to go back.
Mr White

The bungalow was lovely, well equipped and extremely comfortable. We loved the open fire. Had a peaceful, relaxing break.
Mrs Green

It was quiet, very comfortable and a lot of personality and thought has gone into the cottage and garden. In a fantastic location with a lovely view in winter, but will doubtless be in leafy seclusion in summer so it was great either way.
Ms Ouai

The position of the cottage was excellent for everything from walking into the village or through the forest into the moor to days out in the car.
Mrs Archbold

An excellent cottage in an excellent area. Highly recommend.
