Porlock Adventure

Thanks to our good friends we were able to enjoy the beautiful weather over the last few days exploring the Porlock area while staying in their lovely static caravan.

Porlock Holiday Camp is a small, family run site in a beautiful setting overlooking the sea and the hills, close to Porlock centre.

On our first full day we drove along the North Devon coast road, visiting some of the many beaches.

Combe Martin
Ilfracombe
Croyde Bay

The next day we went on the Lynton and Barnstaple narrow gauge railway. It is a very short return trip from Woody Bay but there are big plans to extend the line.

From there we drove to Lynton and took the water powered funicular cliff railway down into Lynmouth.

On the Sunday we drove across Exmoor to Exford for a lovely Sunday roast at The White Horse.

Amazing scenery
Wild ponies
The Tarr Steps, a medieval clapper bridge over the River Barle.

In the afternoon we visited Greencombe Gardens, home to the largest holly tree in England, situated on the hillside overlooking Porlock.

We had a great time and look forward to visiting the area again. It was lovely be on holiday again, enjoying the normal pleasures we used to take for granted.

Thank you, Jan and Mike.

Off to Norfolk next!

  1. What a beautiful area and lots to see and do. Did you dip your toes in the sea? We’re looking forward to our visit at the end of the month and we’ll be visiting many of the locations you visited. I hope we have the same lovely weather as you did 🤞🏻 xx

    • We didn’t paddle. The beaches were very busy. We just soaked up the atmosphere. Lovely to see families enjoying themselves.

  2. Lovely area to visit Carol. Thanks for sharing the photos. Brought back good memories. 😊😊
