Bossington Hall

Porlock, Somerset


Country House Retreat in Somerset

With views down to the sea and surrounded by incredible, untouched, Exmoor countryside, full of superb walking routes, this Lutyens style country house B&B offers an escape to a quieter, less hurried time. But with tennis and squash courts onsite and an area full of activity options, this is the best of both worlds. Explore or simply restore.

The Location

The house is elegantly positioned, surrounded by eight acres of grounds with views down nearby Porlock Weir, but it’s not isolated. The village of Porlock is nearby with its hub of pubs and restaurants plus there is stunning Exmoor all around with a wonderful range of activities and attractions. Nearer the house there’s also a section of the Southwest coast path which makes an easy circular walk, taking about an hour.

The M5 is close by, making getting here by road easy from across the UK and nearby Bridgwater and Taunton are on major rail lines.
