Miller's at the Anchor - Review
DOWN ON THE HARBOURSIDE where Exmoor meets the sea, Miller’s At The Anchor is stuffed to shameless excess. Owned by Martin Miller, this hunting lodge by the shore simply heaves with antiques and curiosities.
Miller’s At the Anchor has all the hallmarks of its famous owner’s unique style. Roaring log fires, glimmering candles, books by the thousand and bowls of fruit and sweets are everywhere. So too is a riot of stuffed animals, roman busts, Venetian chandeliers, gothic candelabra and assorted objets trouvés.
Prints and paintings are set off against vibrant walls in shades of cerise, purple and slate. Lavish drapes sport opulent gold tassels, while squashy sofas are piled with mis-matched cushions.
This curiosity-laden seashore inn is a sister to beautiful Miller’s at Glencot House near Bath. Here, country manor opulence has been traded for a simpler and more rugged country inn vibe.
Help yourselves to a Miller’s G&T from the honesty bar before getting ensconced on a fireside sofa and leafing through some of the fascinating tomes cramming every table and bookshelf.
Bedrooms oozing antiques and artful touches are set off with flamboyant flourishes. Our sea facing room sported cherry-coloured walls, ornate mirrors, decadent drapery and some playful rococo cherubs. Others bask in blues and greens, while the new bridal suite comes in winsome shades of cream and ivory. Bathrooms are basic, though most will be refurbished in the coming months.
Dinner in the aptly named Harbourview restaurant is a mix of gastro pub faves and seasonal specials. Themed suppers are teamed with a movie on Sunday nights in the armchair-filled screening room, stocked with nearly 400 DVDs.
Play billiards if you prefer, or park your two wheels in the cycle lock-and explore the wild rugged beauty and wooded coastal hills of Exmoor. Gaze out at the boats bobbing in Porlock Weir’s pretty marina or set off along the shore with a southerly Somerset breeze blasting away the cobwebs.
