Really friendly and ammenible hosts, gorgeous breakfast. Stunning location, room was well appointed and cosy. Rick and Gina made our stay most enjoyable due to their warm and friendly approach. Delicious home cooked food.

We had a nice room, and we had lovely breakfasts each morning. We did miss having a chest of drawers to put things in. The hotel is a bit remote, and you need a car or Rick is happy to provide a taxi service to wherever you need to go.

Found the Bark House by chance whilst looking for a cream tea on a Sunday during a stay on Exmoor - what a great accident! We were the only ones in the restaurant (what with it being a Sunday in December) but the owners were happy to welcome us in and provide great service. It really felt homely and welcoming...

We had a gorgeous couple of nights away. Rick Gina and Barbara were excellent hosts and went the extra mile. Our bed in room 6 was really comfortable, and we had a sweet little bathroom. Delicious breakfast in the mornings.

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...

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. Rick and Gina...

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...

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,...

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...
