Breakfast at Glen Lodge Luxury Bed & Breakfast

Your host at Glen Lodge luxury bed and breakfast is Meryl. Meryl loves to cook and will set you up with a breakfast to see you through the morning and beyond. All our food is locally sourced and organically grown wherever possible. An ex-pat American, having bed and breakfast guests to cook for is her idea of the best way to indulge one of her greatest passions which is creating food for people to enjoy!

  • Breakfast Bakery, Porlock, Exmoor

We pride ourselves on using locally-sourced organic produce whenever possible.

At Glen Lodge luxury bed & breakfast alternative diets (vegans, vegetarians, diabetics, etc) can be catered for and we offer more than the average B & B breakfast. You can choose from the traditional full English, waffles, pancakes, muffins, soufflés and other baked goodies. Home-made jams (using organic fruit from our own orchards of plums, damsons and apples) and marmalades are a speciality of Glen Lodge luxury bed and breakfast.

If you are preparing for a long day, we can provide you with packed lunches on request. When you arrive back, you can relax and enjoy afternoon tea brought to you in the dining room, library or on the deck.

Things To Do

  • Porlock Bay View Exmoor

Glen Lodge sits high in the natural amphitheatre of Porlock Bay in the Exmoor national park. Here you’ll find walking and riding trails, Exmoor ponies, fishing and pretty villages.

The South West Coast Path loops beside sandy beaches, through sub-tropical woodland and over cliff tops to quaint fishing ports.

  • Discover mediaeval Dunster (8m/13km) with its castle, covered woolmarket and ancient church.
  • Lynmouth Harbour (11m/19km) has boat trips, seaside jollity and a funicular ride up the cliffs.
  • Thatched cottages and a working mill, golf and cream teas – all year round. From bluebell woods to candle-lit processions, water sports to farmers’ markets, there is stacks to see and do.
  • Or… laze and read a good book, watch birds and idly wonder how we keep wild deer off the grass.

Ideally located in a tranquil position backing onto Exmoor National Park, Glen Lodge is nestled in woods and grounds of 21 acres. A short walk from the village of Porlock yet secluded among towering trees and lush private gardens, this luxury Country House Bed & Breakfast offers the pastoral stillness of a country morning and the romance of a luminous star-filled night.

Glen Lodge is perfectly situated for walking to and around Exmoor, birdwatching, exploring the northern Somerset and Devon countryside, relaxing on one of our nearby beaches, visiting National Trust and other historic properties or just staying around the gardens to unwind. A short walk from the house takes you to the centre of Porlock with unique local shops, pubs, museum, galleries and restaurants.
