Cyclist.co.uk writes of this climb:

“The 6.8km Porlock Toll Road is not to be confused with the main road that also snakes steeply (25% max) up Porlock Hill. The toll road is owned privately by the Porlock Manor Estate and is much narrower, far prettier and largely traffic-free.”  Read more 

The climb begiuns in the coastal village of Porlock, population 1,440 (2011).
