“A wonderful cottage in a very nice area.”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We took the children (5&3) along with the Grandparents to this wonderful cottage. It was very well appointed and we were not found wanting for anything. The area is nice with lots of good walks and plenty of interesting things to do.

“Great location & comfortable”

The cottage is central to town but quiet. It had everything we needed for the week. It was nice to see no MDF furniture; it was all oak. The shower was a little underpowered but adequate. A single WC was a challenge for two teenagers and 4 adults but we coped! One also has to be very organised when cooking as the kitchen is a little on the small side.

Janet and I have just come back from a lovely week's holiday here. Although the cottage is positioned in a secluded area approached by a narrow lane, I had no problems getting my car (Fiesta) in and out. The cottage is well cared for and beautifully furnished with high quality matching furniture containing everything you need for a lovely holiday including a nice touch of fresh flowers on the table. The position is literally yards away from the village centre and we would highly recommend The Ship for anybody who's looking for an evening meal. Good food and a nice pint!

“Ideal cottage in ideal location”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our family had an enjoyable stay in this comfortable cottage. A small point, the wardrobe in the second bedroom is too big, a smaller one would allow the doors to be opened without minor gymnastics and hitting the bed. That aside, we all enjoyed our stay at Marley Cottage.

“Magic in the heart of Porlock”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We found the fantastic cottage to be just the ticket. Easy access to Porlock, lovely facilities with enough room for us all. Log burner great for taking the chill of a Dunkery blow about. All aspects of the stay great, comfortable and what we wanted in what is a very special village.

“Lovely, comfy cottage in a great location for walks and pub lunches”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We had such a relaxing stay at marley cottage. In a great location to make the most of all the area had to offer. Amazing walks and countryside combined with a perfect little village all on your doorstep. We also enjoyed a few evenings snuggled up in front of the fire. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated, everything very new, and very welcoming. Will come back !
