A serene stay at an eccentric harbourside hotel in Somerset, including breakfast and an award-winning gin and tonic

Perched between the shingle shores of the Bristol Channel and the rolling wilderness of the Exmoor National Park, Porlock Weir is a charming functioning harbour village and a wonderful destination for a romantic rural getaway. For centuries, Millers at the Anchor has accommodated visiting sailors and hunters and has recently been revamped by antiques aficionado and gin-producer, Martin Miller, in his own inimitable style.

Millers at the Anchor demonstrates the full breadth of its owner's extensive antiques expertise – its eclectic and intimate library, lounge, dining room and bedrooms are uniquely and individually decorated with plush furnishings, oil paintings, marble busts, gilt mirrors and antique candelabras.

It makes for a great base for exploring the South West Coastal Path and the heather-clad hills and secluded, blooming valleys of Exmoor. There are also a number of traditional British outdoor pursuits on offer locally for you to engage in. Relax with a glass of prime, homegrown gin and a splash of tonic after tranquil rambles across Exmoor National Park – could you picture a more perfect scene? This hotel bagged itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and there's no doubt why.
