Either way you can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the surrounding countryside as well as visiting the many places of interest in the area.
Horse riding is available close by for the novice or for the more experienced rider, as is the hire of bicycles.
Tudor Cottage is in the beautiful village of Bossington, given to the National Trust in 1945 as part of the Holnicote Estate. The cottage has been tastefully modernised combining old world charm with today's comfort and offers three rooms, each with either en-suite facilities or it's own shower room with toilet and basin. Start the day with a traditional English breakfast or with something lighter as you plan your exploration in this beautiful part of the country.
Pre-ordered packed lunches are available.Bossington is on the edge of Exmoor, a mile from Porlock and a few minutes walk from the sea. For those who want to forget the car there is plenty of walking from the front door in the immediate vicinity or off across the moor. Also the moor can be enjoyed by car with plenty of places to stop and admire the scenery and the wildlife, and the peace of it all. For those who want a change from walking but don't want to drive, there are safaris.
These provide an opportunity for relaxed exploration plus an opportunity to learn about the area. Transport does not have to be petrol powered. Bicycles are available from Minehead and there is a 'Pedal Around Porlock' circular tour as well as the opportunity to plan your own route.
For those who really want to get to grips with the country and get off of the beaten track the area is ideal for horse riding and rides can be arranged for beginners and for the more experienced.There are many attractions both close by and further afield. The nearest, apart from nature itself, is Exmoor Falconry and Animal farm where you can see a wide range of birds of prey and watch demonstrations. The Falconry also offers the opportunity for a 'hands on experience'.
Some 20 minutes walk away is the village of Porlock, which for a small village, has retained a remarkable range of shops and has a museum and its visitor centre where all are welcome to drop in for a chat and to get some information and ideas for places to visit.
