Lovely countryside stay
Lovely 2-night B&B stay in a twin room which was clean and comfortable and a good size, with a large bathroom with a powerful over bath shower. Good night's sleep both nights as the village is very quiet. Ideal base for exploring Exmoor. Food was very good at breakfast(pre-ordered the night before) and at dinner. Friendly staff. Good Covid measures in place.

Extremely well run. Spotlessly clean. Lovely food. Staff who go that extra mile. Excellent location. Pretty thatched cottage village with ford and tea shop and plenty to do in surrounding areas. You will definitely want to re visit.

Lovely stay
A lovely "olde worlde" pub in the heart of Exmoor. Lovely, clean and comfortable room with plenty of space to move around and relax in. Superb dinner on site where you were not in any way rushed though the courses as you had the table for the evening. Breakfast was divine, beautifully cooked and more than enough to set you up for the day ahead (we didn't eat again until tea time). Overall, would highly recommend.
