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 an experienced host. 

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

Apple Loft & Grooms

Apple loft is the most recent of the two conversions which have transformed the former stables into first class self-catering flats. The open plan kitchen is fully fitted with quality appliances, the lounge is home to a handy sofa bed, TV with Freeview and a DVD player, which leads to the king size bedroom, a large shower and a smaller single bedroom. This is the accommodation to choose if travelling with a pet.


The second location, Grooms was the former residence of the groom in the early days of Glen Lodge. Now it is a luxurious, light and extensively furnished residence with two bedrooms and a shared shower.

Lazy evenings at either of these flats can be enjoyed on the sofas watching TV, a DVD or out on the sun-kissed decking be it with a book, your favourite tipple or both. 

There is free parking and all guests are welcome to take advantage of the communal Jacuzzi and hot tub as well as enjoy the extensive and well-tended to garden which surrounds Glen Lodge.
