About this Holiday Cottage

Peacefully situated in the Exmoor village of Porlock, Watermill Cottage is a wonderful retreat for families and set just a short stroll from the village amenities. Superb walks can be enjoyed right from the doorstep and surrounding towns including Minehead (6 miles) and the quaint hamlet of Porlock Weir (1.5 miles).

The cottage offers characterful and spacious accommodation with the living accommodation set on the first floor and two of the three bedrooms situated on the ground floor. There are two bath/ shower rooms at the cottage and other convenient features include off road parking and a lovely patio garden. The property is attached on one side to another holiday cottage, which has the original watermill at the far end.


The charming living accommodation is set on the first floor and features a comfortable seating area with wood burner stove and a stable door out onto the patio. Entertainment facilities include a flat screen TV, DVD player and CD player. The well equipped kitchen is well appointed with a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, small appliances plus a well stocked herb cupboard. There is also a round family dining table with chairs adjacent to the sitting room and kitchen.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

  • Ground floor double bedroom with antique brass bed and ensuite shower room
  • Ground floor twin bedroom
  • Ground floor bathroom with overhead shower, WC and hand basin


The well established gardens are a beautiful feature of the cottage and they sit alongside the picturesque river. There is a secure, secluded patio with outdoor seating which can be accessed from the sitting room or via the outside steps to the side of the house. The gravel and timber-decked path leading to the front of the property is part shared with the cottage next door and seating can be found on the private terrace next to the river which overlooks the woodland.

There is off road parking for one car (or possibly two small cars) in the open garage attached to the right of the cottage. A real bonus as the village can be quite busy in the high seasons.

Other Things to Note

The rental charge includes towels, bed linen, a high chair, iron, ironing board, Wi-Fi and utilities such as central heating. 


Short breaks of two nights or more may be available at certain times of the year.

Two dogs are welcome at an extra charge of £20 each per stay.

Check in time is after 4pm and check out time is by 10am on your departure day.
