“A cut above the rest.....”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We agree with the other reviewers. This is a lovely place and the owners could not be more generous and welcoming. Morning's found us joined by guineafowls, chickens, and an owl roosting in the barn. Everything about this B&B has a mark of quality about it.

Dulverton is also a pretty little place to visit, and we were treated to a jazz/irish/fusion folk band playing in the local pub.

Relaxing, friendly and quality. Well worth a visit!

My Parent's have stayed twice at Streamcombe Farm (Feb 2012 & July 2012) and my partner & I have joined them for Dinner on both occasions. They always look forward to coming down, just so they can book themselves in!
Ian & Karen make you feel extremely welcome from the moment you arrive, providing an attentive but discreet service throughout your stay. The B&B is full of character, with 3 wonderful en-suite rooms, a cosy living area and stunning conservatory dining area to admire the Somerset scenery from. Ian uses seasonal local ingredients in all of his food, you will never be disappointed his menu or his creative skill.
If you are looking for a romantic getaway, a special place to get together with family/friends or some peace & quiet then this the place for you. I would highly recommend Streamcombe Farm to anyone looking to enjoy some time in Dulverton Area of Exmoor and really be looked after.

Warm welcome back. Our second visit and again we were not disappointed. The rooms are tastefully decorated and warm, but what makes this a step up from your usual luxury B&Bs is the fabulous evening meals. Why travel else where in the evening after a day of exploring, when its all there! Just remember to take your own wine.

We booked two nights in this Ian and Karen's lovely B&B. The converted barn room we had gave lovely views across the valley where the sun rises. A big soft bed and clean, modern shower room.

Blissfully quiet and yet only a couple of minutes drive from Dulverton. There are three rooms so no more than 6 lucky people staying here at any time.
The breakfast was all locally sourced - much we suspect home grown. Freshly cooked and really done with care. The conservatory is a lovely place to eat and start the day off.

Ian the owner also runs cookery courses from a catering kitchen and training room across the courtyard - he clearly enjoys cooking.

We'd booked Dinner on the first night and did not regret it. We arrived at the conservatory to find a candlelit environment. As we were the only couple that night is made it feel so much more romantic! The food was wonderful, and again home cooked, the hosts entertaining and interesting and the room great. What more could you ask for? This is the hidden gem you must stay in when visiting Exmoor.

Room Tip: Ask for the upstairs front bedroom - it's got the view across the Valley.

My husband and I have just experienced a fantastic day learning how to bake bread at Streamcombe Farm. Ian was a brilliant teacher, he took us through step by step on each of the different breads that we made through out the day. You dont just make basic sour dough bread but also get to make and take home with you, foccacia, brioche, fruit loaf as well as making your own tortilla's for lunch!
The groups are kept to just 6 maximum so you get great hands on experience.

Thanks for a brilliant day!

I saw this B & B (which is as good a quality as a country house hotel) on a Nick Knowles restoration programme, and was glad I made the long and windy journey to its door.

Ian and Karen have created an oasis of calm and luxury in this busy world and you can kick of your shoes and really relax. To add to the enjoyment Ian cooks an excellent evening meal so you don't need to leave!

We stayed in the Hayloft the largest room with a balcony - which was sadly overgrown, but could be a lovely place to sit and have coffee. The bathroom has a huge roll top bath and walk in shower, and the whole place has been finished to a high standard, lovely bed linen, plenty of toiletries, and we were welcomed with a huge pot of tea and home made cookies. The evening food is simple fayre but delicious strong in flavours and fresh as can be - grilled sardines on a spicy garlic crouton, rissotto just right, and homemade blackcurrant ice cream - yummy. The breakfast was also excellent with bright yellow eggs from the chickens roaming the grounds, local produce and tasty homemade breads.

This place is off the beaten track but be sure to beat a path to its door - you won't be disappointed.

We stayed 2 nights to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Ian & Kaen were great hosts in looking after us. The accommodation has been created with great sympathy from the farm outbuildings to a very high standard. This is only bettered by Ian's culinary skills & enthusiasm for everything he does.
Janet is returning for the cookery course in a few weeks.
Highly recommended.
