Porlock is an attractive village with old thatched cottages and a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and places to stay. The ancient parish church is dedicated to St Dubricius and the medieval manorial dower house contains a museum of local history. Porlock Hill is notorious for its steepness and can be by-passed by the toll road. It crosses the heathland of Porlock Common, from where there are beautiful views to Porlock Bay and Dunkery Beacon.

Porlock Weir is a picturesque hamlet, once a busy port, is a peaceful and delightful harbour for yachts and fishing boats. Situated along the South West Coast Path, Porlock Weir is also a good starting point for walks to Porlock Marsh and Culbone - home to England's smallest church. 

The Coleridge Way, a 36 mile walking route, ends in Porlock and outside the Visitor Centre you will find a garden and art installation which marks the finish. Here the pleasure dome is depicted and the "person from Porlock" steps out of the garden wall.

Porlock is also home to the roaster of famous tea and coffee producer DJ Miles, who's coffees are roasted daily adding an enjoyable aroma of freshly roasted coffee to the air in Porlock. You can visit their Porlock Roastery shop where you can purchase some of their great tasting products.
