Higher Langridge Farm B & B is set in a somewhat remote part of the Exmoor National Park and can be difficult to locate, but instructions given by the host were clear and easy to follow. The B & B is set in rolling farmland dotted with sheep and cattle, bordered by hedgerows, and close to areas where Exmoor Ponies can be spotted. The farmhouse has been sympathetically restored and offers modern conveniences with the charm of yesteryear. The B & B accommodation is divided off from the family's living quarters and guests enjoy private rooms with a large, comfortable shared living/dining area. Breakfast is a generous serve of sausage, bacon, egg & mushrooms along with cereal, toast, yoghurt, fruit and coffee. The owners are friendly and generous hosts while giving guests all the privacy they desire.
There are many attractions in the area including the National Trust properties Knightshayes and Dunster Castle. Highly recommended is a visit to the Tarr Steps including the circular walk along the river. it is just a short drive to some great value English pubs. We were amazed to see dogs frequenting the front bars with their owners - it all adds to the atmosphere and ambience! Overall, the icing on the cake of our month long European holiday.
