Both myself and my daughter had the pleasure of staying at The Gables for a week in the Easter holidays .... WOW what a beautiful house, location and even more the hospitatlity of Sue and her family.
The Gables is set in a wonderful location with access to some amazing places. Sue was very knowledgable of all that we could do within the area,
The accommodation was of a fantastic standard, the rooms were so comfortable and warming with all the added extra touches that Sue had placed in the room for our comfort (Hot chocolate for my daughter)
I have recommended The Gables to many of my friends and family and I also intend to visit again in the very near future.
Thank you soooo much to Sue and her family for the wonderful hospitality and I look forward to our next visit :0)

Room Tip: The Bovington and Lexmoutha are both amazing, but I also had the oportunity to look at the other roo...

Just got back from a long weekend in Porlock. We stayed at the Gables which was a delight. After a long journey we were shown to our room by Sue. We stayed in Exford, it was a family ensuite, 1 double and two singles. It was perfect for our requirements. Sue then showed us the lounge, bringing us fresh coffee and tea.

The breakfasts were fantastic, we never needed to eat again all day afterwards. On Easter Sunday we came down to breakfast to find Sue had placed two chocolate bunnies for our children on our table. It was very thoughtful!

Porlock is a lovely location, it gives easy access to lots of family focused activities. I would recommend it.

This is a beautiful, extended, cottage situated just off the main streets of Porlock. It is quiet and extremely comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious and everything beautifully presented. Sue Dennis is friendly and approachable, but not at all intrusive. There is everything for 'wet weather play', books, dvds, games, puzzles. A really lovely place to be.

We stayed here in November last year and were very impressed with the personal service and attention to detail. We stayed in the cottage which was a delight and Sue was a charming and friendly hostess. Would not hesitate to return should we venture this way again.

We had a wonderful stay here; Sue was very welcoming with afternoon tea and biscuits, the breakfast was excellent, and the room was nicer than we imagined it would be.

Room Tip: Our room had a step-down into the bathroom; if you have any physical issues, you may want to request...
