Splendid Vicorian with modern day luxury

4.8 on April 17, 2014

We've stayed twice. The bedrooms have every comfort and the breakfasts were wonderful. We also dined at some really outstanding restaurants in the area at the recommendation of the Salters. Meryl is a great cook too so we asked her to cook dinner for us one night. It was delicious and featured local produce. It is well worth the drive from London to spend a few days there.

Glen Lodge of Porlock, little seaside town, wonderful moors..

4.0 on December 29, 2011

My wife and I so enjoyed our stay at Glen Lodge. The house was set on high at the edge of the village. The gardens were tended and, in August, the flowers took us all the way down to pubs, restaurants and the little old church at the center of town. Up the very steep grade at Polock hill to the rolling moors all in bloom with sheep grazing and, if you are lucky, maybe a glimpse of a free roaming wild pony. The views from the house down through the valley to town, and the scene from up top of the hill looking out to sea, were outstanding. We hope to get back some day for a longer stay.

Traumhafter Aufenthalt!!

Ein wunderschönes Haus auf einem traumhaften Grundstück! Ein kleiner Bach plätschert Tag und Nacht, eine tolle Holz-Terrasse, House & Garden-Zeitschriften zum Durchblättern und Faulenzen... Ein sehr niedlicher Ort mit zauberhaften Häuschen und wunderschönen Wäldern! Das Essen: Ein Traum!! Alles frisch aus dem eigenen Garten zubereitet! Selbstgebackene Kekse und Kuchen zum daniederknien! Der Ausblick aus dem ersten und zweiten Stock einfach unschlagbar! Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!

Delightful elegance

Very welcoming home with a beautiful view of the valley down to the beach. Mine was a comfortable room, elegantly decorated, with bathroom next door. Breakfast offered a variety of healthy goodies and local specialities. Fresh baked breads and muffins, and full breakfast available. Attention to detail with quality toiletries and treats. Friendly homeowner.

Great B&B!
