Situated within Exmoor National Park, on the National Trust Holnicote Estate, we offer character and homely bed and breakfast in our Grade II listed National Trust farmhouse, with delightful gardens, herb garden, and owl garden attached. We are situated within Porlock Vale, just a short distance from the lovely village of Porlock, near the Devon border, in the southwest of England. The rooms are comfortably furnished, with antiques and Persian rugs, and good quality beds and soft furnishings. The house offers charm and comfort, whilst preserving many of the original 15th century architectural features. You will find exposed beams, Victorian fireplaces, slate skirtings, and mullioned windows throughout the property. An eco-friendly B&B, with TV, coffee and tea making facilities and Wifi in all rooms. Our breakfast is served in the guest lounge, or in the garden sunshine on a fine summer day, with fresh fruit, fruit juice, yoghurts, cereals, toast, a variety of cooked or continental options, served with tea and coffee. The large gardens are for you to relax in, or enjoy one of our Somerset cream teas, homemade cakes, and home grown salads and herbs for lunch. We have restored the gardens to their original design, and have included a herb garden, with culinary herbs, a Mediterranean herb rockery, a scented garden, and cut flower garden. Our herbs are used in your rooms, in our menu and are for sale in our shop. We offer activities with our owls, birds of prey, horse riding and unique alpaca treks taking your out to Hurlstone Point. We have probably the best collection of flying owls in the UK, and you can often see our youngsters and babies as our collection grows. You can visit the Centre whilst staying with us, and enjoy the ongoing activities throughout the day. We welcome dogs at our b&b, with their own dog bed, towels, and welcome pack of nibbles - there are mile upon mile of amazing dog walks over the hills and through the woods nearby.
