Milbanke is a semi-detached cottage a mile from Porlock Weir in the Exmoor National Park with stunning sea views across Porlock Bay. Created from the former stables of the Ashley Combe Estate it enjoys a unique private seaside setting.

At the rear a terraced lawn and hedge separate the garden from the SW coast path and facing the sea is a big enclosed garden with a tumbling stream and garden furniture. A short private path leads to the stony beach and a beachside walk to pretty Porlock Weir. Milbanke is designed for a relaxing Somerset break.


The cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms, all with sea views; two King beds, one with en-suite shower room and a twin. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over. On the ground floor is a cosy sitting room with wood floor, leather sofas, TV (plus DVD player) and open fire. The adjoining dining room has a French door to the yard/garden and a large bookcase with a wide selection of books for holiday reading. The slate floored well-equipped kitchen with breakfast table and the entrance hall with adjacent utility area and cloakroom complete the ground floor. Central heating throughout. Free Wifi.
