Delightful, remote, quiet
We rented the cottage for a week at the end of July and wanted somewhere suitably remote as we got back into the habit of going away. Milbanke didn't disappoint, it was spacious, well equipped with a good size private garden. The private path down to the beach gave us access to an area that was deserted the entire time we were there. The cottage is situated on private land just off the start of the (very) quiet toll road meaning there was no traffic and no passers by. Peaceful bliss! However, it is only a 10 minute cross country (or beach) walk to Porlock Weir which for a tiny village has a handful of pubs/restaurants/cafes catering for a range of tastes. The house also has access directly onto the South West Coast path allowing you to explore in both directions. Highly recommended cottage.

Perfect in everyway
We stayed here with a group of friends our annual Somerset break. We knew of Porlock Weir but didn't know of this hidden Gem! The house was well equipped but not cluttered, perfect for relaxing in or recovering from a days exploring! They even had a dogs bowl, dogs toys, chairs and beach games all for your use. Waking up each morning to a view across the garden to the sea, just beautiful. Highly recommend taking the short stroll to the beach (make sure you have sturdy soled shoes ie trainers) to see the sunset, beach is often deserted and makes a lovely walk around to Porlock Weir. There is the long way all along the beach or the short way, along the beach and then the path. Highly recommend the bottom ship great atmosphere in the evenings. A Gin&Tonic at the Millers also worth looking at, and if you have a group of you Cinema night at The Millers also worth a visit. The caretaker of the property lives next door and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, the perfect balance between there if you need her but not intrusive. Have stayed in many holiday cottages in the UK but to us this was spot on. We cant wait to come back next year!
