Dunns Cottage is full of character and the perfect destination for families - or couples requiring more spacious accommodation. Situated in the small hamlet of West Porlock between Porlock Weir and the village of Porlock, Dunns Cottage enjoys outstanding views across open fields towards the sea. Entrance to the property is via the kitchen, which leads into a spacious sitting room and is complimented by an adjacent dining room. The front of the property looks away towards coast and a telescope is situated to help you see the wonderful array of birds and wildlife on the marshlands of Porlock Bay. Upstairs are two large king-sized double bedrooms and a smaller bedroom with a small-double bed. There is an upstairs family bathroom with bath and shower, plus a second separate toilet, and a further toilet downstairs in the utility room.

Dunns Cottage is fitted with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and electric cooker with ceramic hob. Other equipment includes cookware, toaster, kettle, coffee machine, a variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. A television (with Sky) in the living room and wireless broadband is available throughout the property.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. Dunns Cottage benefits from central heating throughout the property, plus a wood-burning stove in the living room; kindling, matches and one basket of logs will be provided. Additional logs can be purchased from the hardware shop in Porlock. Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips. Sorry, there is no high chair available at this property.

A small amount of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits are provided to ensure you can have a hot drink as soon as you arrive. There may also be other non-perishable items like a salt, pepper and a few herbs or spices available. Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid and surface cleaner will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided.

Dunns Cottage has a private garden which is landscaped over two levels behind the property plus a seating area to the side from where beautiful views of Porlock Bay can be enjoyed. Off-road parking is available directly outside the property for one car.

Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement (maximum of 2). A supplementary fee of £15 will be added to your invoice. Please do not allow your dogs on the furniture or upstairs and do not leave them alone in the property at any time.

Dunns Cottage is strictly non-smoking.

Week-long bookings and short breaks of three or four nights are available. Please see availability for further details. Arrival is from 4 pm on the first day of your stay. Departure by 10 am on the last day.

Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.

Porlock Weir has a quaint little harbour and its own unique charm; the port has a long and colourful history. Today Porlock Weir is a quiet harbour and a thriving community that welcomes tourists every year, many of whom come to enjoy the pretty scenery, shops, tea rooms, pubs and local cuisine. On a fine day, the South West Coast Path offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the fabulous views across Porlock Weir and the bay. The coastal footpath links up with many other walking trails including Culbone, home to the smallest church in England. One of the more unusual attractions at Porlock Weir is the submerged forest. At low tide, the remains of ancient tree trunks arise from the grey clay soil. These desiccated stumps are the last remaining evidence of a forest that, once upon a time, lay five miles inland.
