Not much to say either way to be honest. Stopped off for s quick pint with the kids on the way back to Porlock. Beer and staff were fine, but as it was 4pm on a Wednesday, it was very quiet.

Relax and unwind while you enjoy the stunning views from our peaceful bedrooms, and outside dining area. The seasonal views of the Valley and Moors are breathtaking (the coastal mist adds real magic to the landscape). Lush green in the spring and summer and full of character and action in autumn and winter. Partridge, pheasant and deer are our companions in the milder months. Staying at The Culbone is a great way to experience life on Exmoor.
