Just spent 2 nights at Rosebank with a group of friends. We wanted a base to go walking and this was absolutely ideal. The rooms were clean and comfy. John made sure we were well acquainted with everything on our arrival including the contents of a small toilet bag with little things we may have missed. ! We enjoyed two...

We always like to stay in our favourite room and John went out of his way to ensure that we were able to do so by asking other guests if they would mind moving rooms. Rose Bank is an excellent base for exploring Exmoor and the surrounding area...

Our third visit to the Rose Bank and hopefully not our last. John and Elaine meet and greet you like returning family , the rooms are outstanding and the breakfast is arguably the best you will get in a B+B. Best place to stay in Porlock. Amanda and Andy.

after reviewing a couple of b& b's in Porlock I decided to go to the Rose Bank for a weekend break. It was one of my better decisions.
