Porlock and the Vale are surrounded by the hills of Exmoor. It is still a small and traditional English village with some good shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Porlock is a nice place to stop off and take a break. The countryside surrrounding Porlock is spectacular. Porlock and Porlock Weir are often confused. Porlock Weir is a small harbour to the West of Porlock and definately a recommended location. It's enchanting and antiquated buildings will impress the visitor.
Porlock Bay is easily accessible by footpath from Porlock and the visitor will find a shingle beach with an inland salt marsh. The countryside is unique here and the wild flowers and marshland scenery make this a bird watcher and hikers paradise.
