On a circular walk getting their had good views across the Bristol Channel to Port Talbot puffing up stream and smoke. Meanwhile back on the summit it turned grim when we got there. We marked the walk up to do again on a better day. We came from the national trust car park east although you need good map Reading or GPS, it was in the OS walking map.

Brilliant activity for Mum, Dad and teens or younger. We all enjoyed the afternoon thoroughly and felt accomplished to have learned new skills while having fun at the same time. We also felt that this activity was great value for the afternoon; all equipment was provided and of top quality, and our guide Ben was so patient and knowledgeable.

I found Burrowhayes approximately 14 years ago, when myself and friends went on a camping trip. I have been back several times since, both camping and to ride.
The Dascombe family are lovely. Nothing is too much trouble.
The horses are extremely well looked after (I'd never ride anywhere where they weren't) and they have a good selection for riders and non riders.
The location is perfect and the views you will get from the saddle are amazing.
On my most recent trip we saw cattle on the moor , Red Deer and Exmoor ponies, along with a huge variety of birds.
I can't sing the praise of these guys enough. Whenever anyone mentions heading to Exmoor, I tell them they need to go to Burrowhayes... Be it for riding or camping. I really can't fault it.

An easy 2.5 mile stroll along the South West Coast Path on the halfway path around Bossington Hill, giving extensive views over the dramatically flat marsh and farmland of Porlock Vale, a landscape of national importance because of the rare flora and fauna which flourish here.
We did part of this walk by parking in Porlock & walking through the village along Sparkhayes Lane to reach National Trust “Sparkhayes Marsh & The Holnicote Estate.
We walked about 3miles across the pathways on the Marsh towards Bossington. This is all flat & fairly easy walking.
The beach itself is rocky.
You get some spectacular views of Porlock Bay & the cliffs.
Although we parked in the village of Porlock you could probably (if you chose to do this section of the walk) find free parking along Sparkhayes Lane

A 15th Century Manor House which now houses a small but quaint museum which is completely run by unpaid volunteers. Exhibitions reflect local history, and are themed by the Curator - Dr Lita Strampp. Our Landlords (Porlock Parish Council), were successful in achieving National Lottery Funding to improve the building nearly 10 years ago. We are rent paying tenants in the building. We do not have an entry fee, but invite those visiting to make a donation towards the current rent, and ongoing running costs. We hope you might be generous, but any amount small or larger is gratefully received. Thank you. We are a Registered Charity
This museum tells the history of Porlock and the surrounding areas.It is run by volunteers who love their job. There is a garden at the rear growing all sorts of old plants. Well laid out You will need more than one visit to see it all. Free admission so please give donation to keep this jewel sparkling.

A woodland garden and organic showpiece of international renown, Greencombe stretches along a sheltered hillside below the tree-covered slopes of Exmoor and offers visitors an outstanding view over ancient fields onto Porlock Bay. The moss covered paths of Greencombe meander through an exceptional collection of ornamental plants that flourish beneath a magnificent canopy of oaks, hollies, conifers and sweet chestnuts. Camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas, maples, lilies, roses, clematis, and hydrangeas all flower in turn among ferns and the garden's four National Collections: Erythronium, small mountain-lilies; Vaccinium, 'whortleberries worldwide'; Gaultheria, 'whortleberries for bears'; and Polystichum, the 'thumbs-up' fern. For 50 years, Greencombe has thrived using organic gardening methods, with a riot of birds and butterflies all around. Also of interest, the garden is home to a champion English Holly tree (ilex aquifolium), the largest and oldest in the British Isles. Like all good plantsmen's Gardens, Greencombe is full of rare and wonderful plants and has much to interest and delight every visitor.
Our second visit to this special garden.Our first visit was several years ago when a much loved parent was dying.The night away was such a relief and the lovely garden was an unexpected delight in lifting ones spirits.

Nestled in the village of Porlock, Exmoor National Park. The shop sells a wide range of Miles loose tea, teabags, coffee, hot chocolate, and many other gifts and tea and coffee accessories. Since 1888 the Miles family have been producing award winning products. Tours of the roastery and tasting events take place every month, check out the website or facebook events for more details.
A tour here is a fascinating experience. A great historical setting in a lovely village. A fine example of small Enterprise adapting to constraints of National Park yet able to expand without loosing local connection. Interesting family history relayed by guide Sam with great charm....MoreThank you for joining us on the tour and for such lovely feedback, All the best.

Up stream from Robbers Bridge car park a delightful river side walk. Wheelchair accessible with boardwalks over difficult bits. The wild flowers are at best in summer and reflect a large selection of the rarities Exmoor has to offer.

On the plus side 4x4 access to Exmoor was good. On the down side the guide had a voice like a fog horn and was very repetitive. Not one i would recommend to others.

This spacious gallery with a growing reputation shows a large selection of carefully selected work. The ever changing stock includes contemporary paintings, original etchings, prints, jewellery, ceramics, sculpture and lots of other interesting pieces. Regular Exhibitions are held.
This is a really good gallery. Concentrates on local artists who have painted the surrounding beautiful scenery but there are lots of other paintings as well as pottery, jewellery and sculptures. They change their pictures on a regular basis so you will always see something new. We've bought paintings from there as well as using them to frame an existing picture. Recommend
