Rick, Gina and Barbara are fantastic warm people who cannot do enough to make your visit enjoyable and memorable. We stayed for 3 nights on the 10/11 & 12 November B & B. It was my 65 birthday on the 11th November, hence the reason for this short break with my wife. We stayed in room 6 which is very... More

We originally visited Bark House 40 years ago when on honeymoon and this weekend we returned to the Hotel to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. The hotel has retained its charm and uniqueness and we were greeted very warmly by the current owners. The accommodation is excellent and the evening meal is great value and very well cooked.

We felt very welcome at the Barkhouse. Good home cooked food, comfortable bed, warm room and welcoming hosts. They were very nice folk and the B&B is a beautiful old building in a green valley with the sound of flowing water outside. We stayed there using a gift card voucher which a number of other 'participating' venues seemed to add... More

The Bark House has always been a special place, just minutes off the main road between Bampton and Exeter, and in a lovely natural setting on the edge of Exmoor. It has been under new ownership since the summer, but the transition has been smooth. Rick and Gina are warm, welcoming, and helpful hosts, the old building itself is lovely,... More

It was nice to be welcomed by both Rick and Gina. The room was nice and warm, very clean and the shower was good. Cosy bed. I like the feature to the room which was the bay seated window which gave it that cottage look. Breakfast was nice from Rick and also a lovely homemade cake form Gina added a... More

Perfect location for driving to the moor. Great welcome from lovely hosts Rick and Gina. Rick especially was most helpful with local knowledge, without being overbearing. Our room was wonderfully spacious with the added bonus of an outside door to let the dog out. Breakfasts were beautifully cooked with everything you could need. Would definitely come back again. Thank you... More

Fantastic hosts made our stay so special, a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful setting. A great base for North Devon, close to Knighthayes National Trust and Dunster Castle only short drives away. A fabulous evening meal at The Bark house and also at nearby Swan at Bampton. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!
