Delightful B & B in the centre of Bampton providing three lovely bedrooms with en suite/private facilities. Our award winning breakfast is served round the large dining table at a time to suit our guests. Bampton is a conservation village in the foothills of Exmoor National Park, 40 minutes from both the South and North Devon coasts. Heron House is an adult only B & B, but is pet friendly to smaller well behaved dogs, for which there is a small charge.

Goodness Sharon M, you have been busy! It was my pleasure having you both as my guests last weekend and I am delighted that Heron House ticked the box, so to speak. We are so lucky here in Bampton, not only do we have good eateries, but a choice of good eateries all within walking distance. I hope you will do this short detour from the M5 again, when next visiting your son in Plymouth, and thank you so much for your generous reviews, very much appreciated. Best wishes Fiona

"Very old house so a little quirkey.Lots of antique furniture..enough drawer and hanging space for a short stay BUT no wardrobe in our room."
"We liked the room and wouldn't need or ask for any changes. This is a period property and the room perfectly reflected its setting"
"All the rooms appeared outstanding"
"Rooms facing the back are likely to be a bit quieter but there's negligible road noise after 7pm anyway."
"Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable."
US$105 - US$126 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
