Our first stay at Butterflies. Parked outside and shown into a very pleasant, clean room with every facility and large en suite bathroom. Noticeable attention to detail. Excellent breakfast with wide choice of food and plenty of it! A good experience.

We stay with Ann and Martin each time we visit family in Porlock and thoroughly recommend the Butterflies guest house. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable and immaculately clean and the breakfast, cooked or continental, is excellent including home made bread. SC

I arrived at The Butterflies after a hard day walking from Minehead and was greeted with a very warm welcome from Ann & Martin. A lovely spacious en-suite room with lots of extras and a fabulous breakfast meant for a really enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this B&B as a great place to stay in Porlock.
