Somerset Towns and Villages




Porlock is a special and unique village. It has retained much of its medieval charm including the 13th Century church of St Dubricius with its famous truncated spire and many attractive and historic buildings.


Porlock sits in a splendid position surrounded on three sides by the wooded and heather clad hills of Exmoor and by the Bristol Channel to the North. Although it only has a population of 1300 it is a lively, living village with a vibrant calendar of activities and an amazing variety of shops, restaurants and accommodation.


Exmoor is a dark skies reserve and Porlock is the ideal base for star gazers of all ages. It also offers an excellent base for walking or cycling. With activities such as horse riding and outdoor adventures available there is something for everyone.
