Overstream Guest House Information


The Overstream is located in the heart of Porlock, and is ideally situated for all local activities including Exmoor National Park and the magnificent coastline. The Overstream has five ensuite letting rooms. The garden view bedroom has an ensuite with a bath, which has a shower over it. The Sea View and the Church View bedrooms have a large shower ensuite. The small double and the twin room superior have a small shower ensuite. All rooms have have tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and a TV. Free internet access is available. Porlock lies at the foot of the infamous 1 in 4 Porlock Hill and is approximately one mile from the sea. The village retains much of its olde worlde charm and character and thatched cottages with tall chimneys (a feature of West Somerset) can be seen in the winding high street. There is an excellent range of shops, restaurants and inns catering for everyone's needs. Porlock is within Exmoor, one of the smallest National Parks (265 square miles). It consists of some of the most breath taking and unrivalled scenery in the country, with a superb mixture of dramatic coastline, rolling moorland and beautiful secluded combes. There are 600 miles of rights of way over footpaths and bridleways and many thousand of acres of open moorland on which public access is permitted. We have a wide range of maps and detailed walking maps available. We have a large car park and a lift to all floors. The Overstream is licensed and guests can relax in the lounge with daily papers, in front of a log fire or in the garden. We are not able to accept pets.
