    • “We had the most wonderful weekend at this beautiful property. Thank you”

    Mrs Peart, Kidlington, February 2019

    • “We had a lovely holiday thank you. The house is the absolute perfect location for a Christmas break; full of atmosphere, cosy, but big enough for a large party to not be on top of each other all of the time. The kitchen was fully equipped and easily facilitated all of our catering needs. All of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The bar was an absolute highlight. Would definitely come back again.”

    Mrs Stringer, Rickmansworth, December 2018

    • “A fantastic place for a big family/ friends get together, lovely house & garden, with beautiful surroundings, nice pubs etc close by within walking distance . The staff on hand were very helpful & pleasant. Hope to return for the 3rd time at some point!”

    Mr Davies, CHRISTCHURCH, August 2018

    • “The location of the property was very peaceful with lovely scenery. Each bedroom barring one had lovely views. The staff we met were very kind and helpful and we found the property clean and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent.”

    Mrs Charlton, MAIDSTONE, August 2018

    • “The only problem is the stones on the beach and you can not do anything about them. We loved sitting on the verandah eating breakfast and watching the sea. Plausibly the seats there could be better but that is a minor irrelevance. the children loved running around the grounds. in front of us.”

    Mr Barrone, SWINDON, August 2018

    • “We had an amazing time at Porlock Vale House. We were a party of 20 for a family reunion and the house worked out perfectly for us, especially every room having its own en suite, the kitchen was well equipped, the beds comfortable and the views from the house were absolutely incredible. The children in our party especially enjoyed seeing the horses and cows in the adjoining fields and being able to run around and play in the extensive grounds. The owner and his staff were extremely helpful in suggesting things to do and especially recommending a caterer for our special celebration. Thanks to Helpful Holidays for making everything run so smoothly from initial inquiry to booking.”

    Mrs O'Leary, Danville, July 2018

    • “We are a group of Scottish dancers ages up to eighty ,there is comfort in the house, any problems we had were dealt with with good grace and speed the grounds are beautiful the beds very comfortable and the house is always warm. Porlock weir though tiny is worth a visit as is dunster and mine head. We all enjoyed our visit and intend to return next year”

    Mrs Brown, Ludlow, April 2018
