Reviewed 27 February 2017

Good home cooked meal with fresh ingredients. Friendly and helpful staff. We would eat there again. We did not stay at the hotel but rather had a very pleasant evening meal having seen the menu choices displayed outside earlier in the day.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this lovely review. It is a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your dinner with us and it was really quite a coincidence that you met another couple from Barnstaple (who were staying with us that night) during dinner as well. I have already passed on your comments to our...

I popped in for some local information and the proprietor couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Clearly run by people who love the local area and enjoy sharing it with visitors. The smell of lunch was lovely - next time!

Dear Lawrence, thank you very much for your kind words. We indeed love Dunster and its surroundings with the gorgeous Exmoor National Park and we are blessed to work and live in an area which is so full of cultural and most of all natural highlights. If you are next time around during lunchtime or in the evening, just pop...

The Yarn Market is a quirky but comfortable hotel right in the centre of the village of Dunster, itself delightful and full of interest. It has no airs and graces but treats each guest as an individual and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely staff. The food is excellent in terms of choice, quantity and quality, using fresh...

Dear Julia, thank you very much for your kind review. It was great having you and the other members of the walking group staying with us again. In regard to the weather you probably came one week too early as today it was a lovely sunny and mild day just like in spring. But good to hear that you enjoyed...

What a shocker this place is! A rabbit warren of halls, stairs and corridors (not disabled friendly), the bedroom was smaller than the bathroom and the bed the size of a postage stamp. A kettle and triple packed biscuits (didn't know they still made them) was abandoned on the chest of drawers along side a 12 inch TV! I think...

While we take every constructive criticism seriously and try to use it as a motivation to improve, it is quite hard to do so when the size of a bed is compared to a postage stamp and when you talk of “uncooked” breakfast (while lots of the guests of a folk dance group which were staying with us the same...

My second Choral Weekend at the Yarn Market Hotel. A fabulous weekend learning and performing Carmina Buruna. All the staff are friendly and very helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The weekend was full board and every meal was very good. The food is excellent, lots of variety and well cooked and presented. I was very impressed by...

“Not all rooms have a bath in the en-suite, so worth asking when you book if this is your choice.”
