Bracken Apartment is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday and offers a high standard of accommodation. It can accommodate two guests, making it ideal for couples or larger groups of seven to eight if Maxwelton (see separate advert) is also rented at the same time.
Located in the traditional Exmoor village of Porlock, in West Somerset, this stunningly unspoilt part of England has immense appeal in terms of wildlife, history, outstandingly beautiful and diverse landscapes.
Porlock and Porlock Weir offer a great selection of fine restaurants, country pubs and cafes where you can enjoy delicious cream teas, seafood specialities, along with traditional local fayre. Porlock has an assortment of interesting shops, church, museums and a very helpful tourist information centre where you can find all the information you need to help you plan your holiday.
The Exmoor National Park has so much to offer and is a great location for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities or wildlife, with Exmoor being home to the majestic Red Deer and of course, the Exmoor native ponies. Picturesque historic villages surround Porlock. Its landscape is diverse with rolling moorland ablaze with heather, lakes, rivers, sparkling streams, ancient woodlands, beaches, archaeological sites and dramatic stunning coastline.
There are plenty of footpaths, cycling routes and bridleways throughout the National Park with an abundance of opportunities for enjoying wildlife and bird watching, mountain biking, cycling, walking, pony trekking, sailing, fishing or just taking a drive along the pretty country lanes.
Porlock Weir sits just two miles from Porlock village and is a charming unspoilt harbour and lovely location to spend an evening at the pub or restaurant. There are a some shops, an Aquarium and the Boat Shed Museum.
Steeped in history, the picturesque village of Dunster is only eight miles away. Its castle dates back to Norman times and today it hosts many events throughout the year. Another National Trust property within the village is an 18th century restored watermill and there are at least two hundred listed buildings which all add to its charm.
A simply stunning drive from Porlock takes you a little further afield to Lynmouth (ten miles) and Lynton (twelve miles) which are linked by a cliff railway. Here you will find plenty of places to eat, and Lymouth has a putting green, tennis court and quaint fisherman's cottages.
