The Ship Inn is located at the foot of the infamous Porlock Hill. A very short stroll will take you to the centre of the village with its good range of shops, restaurants and Post Office.
Words can hardly do justice to the beauty of this area. Porlock must be one of the most beautiful places to live in England. On three sides it is surrounded by the hills of Exmoor, but to the north the Bristol Channel provides spactacular views of the sea.
Exmoor itself is both wild and romantic. Now a National Park, Exmoor is best known for its wild ponies and red deer. Close to Porlock is Porlock Weir, a picturesque harbour which retains many historic feratures including charming cottages.
