Boatman's Cottage

Boatman’s Cottage is a delightful stylish cottage tucked away in the centre of the wonderful Exmoor village of Porlock. Believed to date back to the 1890s, this cottage is part of a small terrace originally built for boatbuilders and their families. The cottage row is described in the Historic Exmoor record as ‘having a pleasing sense of seclusion’ and it certainly does, yet a short walk along the mediaeval Drang and you are in the heart of the wonderful Porlock Village. 

The cottage has been sympathetically modernised to ensure a very comfortable experience, yet retains much of its original charm. There is a large bedroom at the front of the cottage with a king size bed and a second double room which has its own basin. You will sleep in high quality Egyptian cotton sheets. There is a spacious, light and airy bathroom with a shower over the bath. Downstairs there is a newly fitted kitchen with Bosch appliances, including a dishwasher and washing machine. There is a separate dining room with table and chairs and comfy sofa, as well as a very cosy sitting room, with a corner sofa and wood burning stove. Outside, at the rear, there is sunny private terrace, which is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee before you set off on your daily adventures, or to enjoy a glass or two at the end of the day to unwind. A large part of the charm of Boatman’s Cottage is that it is accessed via a mediaeval passageway.
