This is a small hotel in bustling Porlock, which is a great base for exploring Exmoor and the North Coast of Somerset and Devon. The surrounding countryside is spectacular but what really sets the place apart is the kind and welcoming hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Tea and cake on arrival and excellent freshly cooked breakfasts.

Two of us stayed for 3 nights and were glad we chose Overstream. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful and make you feel instantly relaxed. The full English breakfast is highly recommended, although there is a great selection of every other breakfast fare you could want! Our room was spotlessly clean. Really cannot fault this great B&B in the... More

A very hospitable place, friendly, professional and efficient owners. Upon arrival you're made very welcome, advice and information available, and an afternoon tea helps too. Very easy place to find with a large car park to the rear. Right on the high street and on the A39.
