Underway description

This delightful, detached holiday property is a must for those seeking to enjoy a comfortable house in a great location. Positioned just outside the delightful coastal village of Porlock in west Somerset, Underway is presented to a very high standard offering comfortable bedrooms and spacious living areas. With magnificent sea views across Porlock Bay towards Hurlestone Point and Bossington Hill, the house is a great place to spend a break catching up with friends and family, or as a well-positioned base for exploring this stunning and uncrowded part of the country. In addition to well-appointed accommodation, there is a delightful garden for guests, including a woodland garden laid out by the noted botanist Norman Hadden, who lived at Underway for many years. Porlock is a very quick drive or a short walk away and has a good range of local shops and restaurants. Also within a fiftteen minute walk is the picturesque harbour of Porlock Weir with its pubs and restaurants.
Whilst staying at Underway, there is plenty to do. Enjoy the natural wonders of Exmoor and the dramatic coastline in this region. There is superb scenery and walking on the South West Coastal Path or inland on Exmoor, with highlights such as Dunkery Beacon and the village of Withypool. The pretty Victorian villages of Lynmouth and Lynton, which are famous for the Watersmeet Gorge (NT), Valley of the Rocks and the famous funicular cliff railway, are well worth a visit. Looking towards Minehead, visitors here can go back in time on the scenic West Somerset Steam Railway, or visit the enchanting, medieval Dunster Castle (NT), with its beautiful terraced gardens, deer park and watermill, all making for an interesting day out. There are beaches at Dunster and Blue Anchor, and fishing, golf, horse riding and cycling are all available. Further afield, the resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Woolacombe are well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.Large living room with French doors.
