Perfect weekend away with the Wife.

Warm welcome. Lovely couple providing impeccable hospitality through our stay...a perfect weekend away with the wife and some much needed R and R away from our busy lives back home. They were more than happy to tell us about the area, including places to eat and walks etc. Food was amazing...all cooked to order, and locally sourced. The attention to detail was brilliant...eg. Providing cold fresh milk in thermo canisters for our room. Home made shortbread to accompany fresh locally sourced ground coffee with cafetière and local tea for your room. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. 10/10

A Charming Country Hideaway

We really enjoyed our stay at Dunkery Beacon Country House. This is a small and friendly country house our hosts looked after us very well. The hotel is very charming. The bedroom was clean and tidy with fresh décor and all of the facilities that you would expect (television, tea and coffee making, toiletries). The views over the Exmoor Hills were stunning. The hotel was in a very quiet location close to Minehead and access to the hotel was along quiet winding country lanes. The dining facilities were excellent with fresh décor and modern furniture. We took breakfast and dinner in the hotel and the food was to a very high standard and award winning. The chef support local produce suppliers. We chose this hotel because it was provided easy access to the West Somerset Steam Railway and Dunster Castle. We would definitely return and would recommend it to friends.

Former hunting lodge, converted to a small hotel with restaurant. The conversion provides good spaces for its new role while retaining the original character. The furnishings, artwork and 'pickup and read / look / play with' resources were all excellent and fitted the hotel's style. The attention and service from the owners was excellent and the food was superb.
