Puffins Holiday Apartment
We intend to open after the 12th of April, as the rules of lockdown are still unclear and if you book directly with us we will operate a no deposit pay on arrival system, should you need to cancel due to COVID restrictions no charge will be made.
We have received some amazing reviews over the years that we have had Puffins. We use TripAdvisor, Booking.com and AIRBNB and have received certificates from two and will hopefully receive a certificate from AIRBNB once we have received enough reviews.
We achieved a 9.7 award with Booking.com in February 2020, we are very pleased with this result and continue to work hard to maintain this standard.
As a young person living in Brighton, Melody would return home for her holiday, it was vital for her well being. Walking everyday on Exmoor, come rain or shine is amazingly refreshing. With this in mind it was Melody’s intention to create a comfortable creative holiday space from which this refreshment can be found.
Melody says – “Having worked in hospitality, the experience of creative excellence, I hope has inspired me to make my guests stay special and a holiday to remember.”

Exmoor has a great art history, with links to Coleridge, Wordsworth and Turner, all who visited and stayed in Porlock.
Melody and David also register Puffins on TripAdvisor and are very happy for you to look at reviews or book Puffins via them.
Renovations were completed in August 2015 and although not equipped for disabled guests, it is a ground floor holiday apartment with suitable access. In essence Puffins is created for guests who like a little luxury with a creative flair.
