As a young person living in Brighton, my trips home were vital to my well being... Walking everyday on Exmoor, come rain or shine is amazingly refreshing . With this in mind  my intention was to create a comfortable creative space from which this refreshment can be found. Having worked in hospitality  the experience of creative excellence I hope has inspired me to make my guests stay special.

Puffins is a ground floor apartment in the centre of Porlock just a short walk to the local shops, pubs and restaurants.  Renovations were completed in August 2015 and although not equipped for disabled guests, it is a ground floor apartment with suitable access.  In essence Puffins is created for guests who like a little luxury with a creative flair.  

Porlock is a working village set in the heart of Exmoor with walks from your doorstep or just a short drive away.  Porlock has a selection of shops for day to day needs and other art, craft, antique and clothing shops as well as pubs, restaurants and coffee shops.

From my studio across the path from The Old Tannery, I sell my artwork and offer art lessons (please contact us for details).  We also have a small Gallery in Porlock High Street which showcases David, my husbands photos alongside my paintings.

We hope to welcome you in the near future.
