Porlock

With the green hills of Exmoor on three sides and the sea in front, this untroubled village has inspired poets and dreamers for centuries; friendly cottages and inviting shops line the narrow winding streets, knights of old lie at rest in the church, the bones of aurochs were found in the silt at the edge of the bay two miles away. For tasty teacakes go to Mrs. Jackson’s Victorian Tea Rooms; have a cream tea at the charmingly named Whortleberry Tea Rooms, or for good honest pub grub go to the 13th century Top Ship. Go down to Porlock Weir to watch the world go by on the harbour.
