For the wood-burner in the kitchen, a basket of logs and kindling can be supplied for a supplement of £7. You can add logs to your booking when you make your reservation. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own logs with you, or they can be bought in the village from the Hardware or the village shops.
The courtyard to the rear of the property is enclosed.
There is no allocated parking available but it's possible to stop in the temporary parking bays by the door on the High Street to unload your bags, parking here is limited to 30 minutes.
For longer stay there is an element of free parking around the village, however we would recommend Porlock central car park which is £5 a day or £25 for a week (via Phone and Pay). This car park is just a few minutes walk down the High Street from the property.
