Things to do

Upon arrival at Locanda, we are happy to help unload your luggage whilst you relax in the lounge with a pot of Exmoor tea or coffee and begin to let go, unwind and get comfortable in your home away from home for the next few days. We are on hand to answer any questions you may have and to help make your stay with us memorable, there is a selection of curated books, movies, vinyl and a card table with backgammon and puzzles for you to enjoy. A large part of the Locanda experience for many of our guests is the food, Pio, our Italian chef co-proprietor is a passionate cook and will try to accommodate dietary requirements where possible but if a set menu is not for you there are other dining options in Porlock Weir for your enjoyment. Another popular aspect to the Locanda experience are the coastal walks, being on the SW coast path there are many beautiful walks for all abilities and we provide guides and maps for you to borrow, we can also provide a picnic, or maybe a flask of coffee sitting out on the beach listening to the waves?

We want Locanda to be your cosy getaway tucked away in this quintessentially British corner of England where the moor, sea and ancient woodlands all meet in peaceful harmony with nature. our aim is for you to be able to let go and relax with your needs taken care of by the small family-run team at Locanda and we do all we can to make it so.
