Glen Lodge

A picture perfect B&B, bordering Exmoor National Park…

Set in 21 acres, close to the sea, surrounded by splendid walks and coastal paths resides this very special Wolsey Lodge. Nestled amidst the trees, Glen Lodge is a tranquil haven, with a tiered garden that extends all around, complete with a captivating stream cascading over waterfalls alongside secluded terraces, the croquet lawn, and seating areas.

Built in 1886, the original features have been blended into the warm and welcoming home. It has a cosy library, outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub, a gym, sitting and dining rooms all of which enjoy the amazing views across the garden to the sea beyond. There are even pathways that lead directly from the gardens to the village of Porlock, with its array of shops and tea rooms, only a short stroll away.

Tea and cakes are served to B&B guests every afternoon and are well worth returning home for! Each bedroom has been carefully furnished with all the finishing touches you would want and expect of a bed and breakfast tended to by experienced hosts. 

Breakfast here will be nothing less than exceptional – the freshly baked muffins are a particular specialty and not to be missed.

Absolutely lovely. Bedroom was large & comfortable. Hosts were welcoming & friendly. Meals were wonderful. It was "nothing less than exceptional.

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts here in Somerset at Glen Lodge are David and Meryl Salter. David is a master craftsman. When at home in Porlock the garden is his domain and he is a keen sailor and birdwatcher. Meryl is an outstanding cook and keen photographer as well as sharing ‘twitching’ with David.


Glen Lodge is in Hawkcombe, Porlock, Somerset. Exmoor is a delight throughout the year – don’t miss a walk to Dunkery Beacon, charming Porlock Weir, Valley of the Rocks, cliff railway at Lynton, Dunster Castle, Tarr Steps and of course the Exmoor ponies and deer. Take a stroll across the open moors before enjoying a meal and drink at one of the wonderful pubs in the area.
