This smart Victorian cottage is in Porlock and sleeps up to 5 people in three bedrooms.

At the foot of the famous Porlock Hill, the attractive village of Porlock with old thatched cottages, shops, cafes and restaurants, sits between Exmoor and the sea. Tucked away in a narrow lane behind the 13th century church in a secluded yet central location is Marley Cottage. Dating back to the late Victorian era, Marley Cottage was originally built for local boat builders and their families.

Inside, the cottage is smart and inviting. On the ground floor, the open-plan living/dining room has a wood burning stove, comfortable sofas and smart oak dining table/chairs. Upstairs are three bedrooms; two pretty double rooms and a twin, sleeping up to a maximum of five guests.

To the front is a small south-facing sitting-out area, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, across which, in typical nineteenth century fashion, the adjoining cottages have right of access. Whether walking, cycling, riding, fishing or simply exploring Exmoor and its pretty villages, you can enjoy all aspects of this beautiful part of Somerset at Marley Cottage.
