"Welcome to Porlock" Porlock by yumyum

Porlock Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 97 photos

I came to Porlock on a sunny day, while we took a drive around the area. Porlock is located near the Bristol channel in Somerset and very close to North Devon. It is a cute little village with all the neccessary shops and restaurants. A big attraction is the Exmoor which starts right up the hill.

    You have indeed been to Porlock Sonja and got some great pics while you were there. It is a stunning part of the world and my Porlock page is nowhere near finished - I'll probably have to add a TL or two as I'm sure I'll have orphan photos even once I've done with tips.

    A nice and very Englishy-looking town! The closest I have been is Bristol, where I changed buses once, and Bath.

    It looks like you had some great views while touring the Porlock area - except while behind the bus! My wife and I really enjoyed this scenic part of England on our last visit.

    Lovely little page here. Unfortunately I haven't explored the region around Bristol yet. But did you know that I once went through the Dartmoor with an historic bus?

    Beautiful view on Bristol channel (I've had a look at the map and found that we call it Bristol gulf - though Englishmen like to name the sea waters by channels). Thanks Sonja for the tour!
