Above: The view from Woodlands
Woodlands is a light, spacious and comfortable detached house ideal for a relaxing holiday and for exploring the beautiful Exmoor National Park. As its name suggests, Woodlands nestles on a wooded hillside above Porlock Weir from where open sea views are enjoyed from the terrace and most of the rooms in the house. Occasionally a shy red deer may even be seen browsing in the garden - but you would have to be up early to see this!
Walk along the coast path from here to Culbone Church, the smallest parish church in England, which can only be reached on foot. Or wander down to the Weir for a pub meal at the Ship Inn or eat at the superb Le Cafe or Millers at The Anchor Hotel. Stroll along the beach, watch the birds and the boats; drink in the unique atmosphere created by the natural landscape and the changing seasons.
