How to get here

Car

While Porlock Common itself is bisected by the A39, a major road, but directly to the East is the infamous 1 in 4 (25%) gradient Porlock Hill which for anyone towing or in something larger, may struggle. A more scenic route can be taken via the Porlock toll road (£1.00) which is well signed posted in the village of Porlock.
