A luxury Exmoor B&B with sumptuous grounds and sensational views.
There are posh B&Bs, and then there is Bossington Hall: a brand-new, luxury Somerset Bed & Breakfast that not only enjoys a marvellous location, with eight acres of grounds, gardens and leisure facilities but is also home to six extremely comfortable, spacious guest rooms, all with wonderful views out to sea or over the moors and woodland behind. Based just outside the popular seaside village of Porlock, on the edge of the mighty Exmoor National Park, there are plenty of B&Bs in the area but we have to say none can match the personable luxury of Bossington Hall, not to mention the glorious views. Come here once and we guarantee you'll return.

Formerly known simply as 'Lynch House', the house was built in the early 20th century by a local shipping magnate, in a 'sunny spot' on the outskirts of Porlock just a stone's throw from the sea. All the rooms are different, but they're all very generous sizes, especially the massive The Greenaleigh Suite (which can accommodate 4 in double and twin bedrooms). All the other rooms are regular but spacious doubles, and because of the way the house is configured, only 2 have en-suite bathrooms (the other 4 each have private bathrooms). Again all the bathrooms are spacious and well-equipped, with towels, robes and toiletries, and a couple features rolltop baths. Beds are king-size or super-king-size, with comfortable, good quality mattresses, and all the rooms have good wifi, Smart TVs, tea and coffee-making facilities and complimentary water. Two of the six rooms allow dogs, and two can inter-connect, making them perfect for a family with slightly older children. Breakfasts meanwhile are legendary, with a choice of Full English or Continental, and packed lunches can be provided for hungry walkers.

Bossington Hall also has more than the average crop of B&B facilities, including a cinema room with a large screen, tennis court, the oldest private squash court in the country, a children's playground, river and pond and and acres of informal gardens. You also couldn't be better placed for exploring Exmoor, and Porlock is only a mile away, with plenty of options for drinks and dinner. Very much a place to relax and explore both the stunning coastline and and national park.
