    • “milbanke was extremely comfortable & inviting, in general a great holiday cottage.”

    Mr Bates, West Bromwich, October 2018

    • “The cottage was as described clean warm and very holiday friendly , would recommend for a quite relaxing break, Unfortunately we had to leave early due to some building work which both the owner and holiday company were totally unaware of and was not scheduled to the end of season, both the owner and Holiday company were very professional in dealing with the situation which was not of their fault, we were refunded for our lost days quickly and without fuss , Would highly recommend Milbanke cottage and Helpful Holidays and would have no problem again staying at this loverly cottage and using Helpful Holidays, RECOMMENDED Alan Ayton,”

    Ayton, SLOUGH, September 2018

    • “This is our second visit to Milbanke and we hope to return in the near future. We initially went to Helpful Holidays five years ago because it was a small company covering a limited area so were rather concerned when you joined forces with Sykes. Our experience with other companies that have become part of something larger has not always been good. We hope you can keep your niche and fantastic customer service.”

    Mrs Donegan, CHIPPING NORTON, July 2018

    • “location is superb this cottage is a hidden gem, although far enough away to have peace and privacy just a 10 minute walk to the nearest pub along the beach, not saying too much as we want to visit again, selfish yes but you would be too if you stayed there, 10 out of 10 .”

    Mr Tutty, Abingdon, May 2018

    • “The cottage was excellent, well equipped and comfy and warm. The location was excellent, peaceful, secluded and having access to the beach was a brilliant plus for us, the children and the dog. It was great to be able to let the children (they're 10 and 12) go off and explore on their own and have some freedom and the dog was happy on the beach all day long! It made for a happy holiday for all of us. Exploring the local beach and woods was also exciting as we discovered all the old tunnels to the old manor house. Highly recommended the house and location as can easily walk to Porlock Weir and pub. We'd happily book the cottage again and only ever use Helpful Holidays for any cottage booking in the South West as we have always found their service and cottages on their books to be excellent. Thank you.”

    Mrs Knight, BRISTOL, March 2018

The Property

A mile from Porlock Weir and 2 miles from Porlock, with stunning views over Porlock Bay and the Bristol Channel, a semi-detached cottage converted from stables at the end of a no-through lane, once part of the Ashley Combe mansion built for Lord Byron’s daughter. The coastal footpath hidden behind the cottage leads through woodland, past former garden terraces and under old tunnels once connected to the main house. A private path leads in 150 yards to the pebble shoreline and sea beyond. The perfect location for walkers, nature lovers and silence seekers. Lawned terraces to the side and rear, steep in places. Opposite the cottage, large enclosed garden (table/chairs) with a stream. Inside, gentle colours and fabrics, designed for relaxation. Slate-tiled hall (loo); utility room (washing machine). To one side, large living/dining room (open fire, TV/DVD) with wood floor and French windows to courtyard and garden. To the other, kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with breakfast table. Upstairs, three bedrooms, all with lovely sea views over Porlock Weir - two double (5' beds), one with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Dogs permitted in hall and kitchen only. Spring water. A wonderful, timeless place with some of Exmoor’s best walks immediately from the door.

Porlock Weir: pretty hamlet (restaurant, pub, shops) around a tiny, ancient harbour and pebble beach, 1½ miles west of Porlock. England’s smallest church at Culbone is 1 mile away, and all around Exmoor’s oak woods and heather hills - wonderful for walkers.
