Bossington Hall overlooks spectacular views of Exmoor and the Bristol Channel. A short walk brings you to the picturesque villages of Bossington, Allerford and Porlock. The famous South West Coast Path passes by at the beach below.

Refurbished this year to a high standard, the house abounds with period charm, yet has the modern trappings you have come to expect. 15 bedrooms, with sumptuous King and Superking sized beds, and 14 bathrooms in total. 7 bedrooms feature zip-n-link beds allowing for flexible accommodation. The primary kitchen, with a large Smeg induction range cooker is complemented by a secondary, separate kitchen (ideal for allergy sufferers or small children's meals). Seamless wifi is available throughout the building. Upstairs the kids can be entertained on a wet afternoon with the large screen TV and games console. Downstairs is the pool table and darts room, with french doors leading to the veranda, ideal for a few beers and a barbecue. Next to the card games room is the second TV room with another large screen telly. For those requiring a bit more privacy, or even more space - we also have Gate Cottage on the estate, a self contained 3 bedroom cottage.

Outside, the 6 acres includes a hard tennis court, a mill pond and the old squash court which is being refurbished into a charming mini cinema. The veranda is equipped with plentiful seating, and of course, a barbecue.

Exmoor is full of things to do, from flying hawks, horse riding, fly fishing, coasteering, walking, several zoos, kayaking, sea fishing to name but a few of the attractions within a few miles. Porlock is well stocked, with two supermarkets, a hardware shop, art gallery, ancient church - even an 'attended' petrol station.


Set in the heart of Porlock Vale, Gate Cottage is a selfcatering cottage with a beautiful view from every window.

Freshly refurbished its 3 double bedrooms, (one with twin beds, two with king size beds) the cosy cottage makes you feel pampered in a home away from home. Gate Cottage has a courtyard garden with overflowing pots of fresh herbs and a ready barbeque to take full advantage of its position as a private sun-trap.

The living-room has a log-burner, tv, dvd player and comfy sofas.The kitchen is a light bright galley style with a door that leads onto the garden The dinning room can comfortably seat six.

We believe in welcoming every member of the family and that includes furry, waggy ones, the beauty of the area is definitely one best shared with our four legged friends, all that we ask is that paws are wiped and kept on the floor.
