The West Country Sights

Porlock Hill

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 05/28/2014

Fodor's Review

As you're heading west from Porlock to Lynton, the coast road A39 mounts Porlock Hill, an incline so steep that signs encourage drivers to "keep going." The views across Exmoor and north to the Bristol Channel and Wales are worth it. Less steep but quieter and equally scenic routes, up the hill on toll roads, can be accessed from Porlock and Porlock Weir.
