Bus 300 heads from Porlock east along the coast to Minehead (£6, 15 minutes), and west to Lynmouth (£10, 55 minutes). It runs from mid-July to early-September, with two buses a day, Monday to Friday only.
Drivers can choose from two picturesque routes into Porlock village. The New Rd toll road sweeps through pine forests and round U-bends, while Porlock Hill (A39) is a brake-burning 1:4 descent. A further toll road, the Porlock Scenic (Worthy) Toll Rd, provides an alternative, bouncing, route up out of Porlock Weir.
