“This place is heaven!”
Reviewed 17 August 2008

We have been visiting The Oaks each year for the past 7 or 8 years with various family members and friends and each time nobody wants to leave. Nothing is too much trouble for Tim & Anne and everything about the place is perfect. The rooms are fabulous, a good size with great bathrooms and a huge attention to detail such as fresh flowers, biscuits, fruit and a chocolate on your pillow at night! The beds are really comfortable and I always get a good nights sleep here.

The food is to die for. A variety of choice each night. I don't know how Tim & Anne do it, the food is just heavenly from the melba toasts & homemade rolls on the table and the fish course after your starter to the ever changing selection of perfectly cooked vegetables through to the melt in your mouth puddings followed by the coffee and the homemade chocolates which slip down a treat! (marzipans are my favourite!) Words cannot describe how good the food is here! Breakfast is great too!

The location of The Oaks is perfect for doing your bit for the local economy in the village and for getting out and about on Exmoor! I look forward to my trip to The Oaks each year, I simply cannot fault it! I have a stressful job and as soon as I arrive the ticking clocks and the relaxing atmosphere have a calming effect on me!

Our first visit to The Oaks was our honeymoon in 1964. It was special then, in a beautiful setting and the service was good. The cost then was, for a week, 10 Guineas with a reduction for honeymoon couples of 10 shillings.
We decided to return in 2004 for our Ruby Anniversary and found the outside of the hotel looked the same. However the inside had dramatically changed. The rooms, now all en-suite, had been enlarged to resemble small suites traditionally furnished for the comfort of the guests. Fresh fruit, flowers and bottled water were provided every day.
The entrance hall-snug and the lounge had real open fires. A well stocked bar and comfortable seating welcomed us as we returned from our days out.
The food was excellent, freshly cooked using locally sourced products.
Obviously costs have substantially increased in forty years but a stay here is still good value for money. The hosts, Tim and Ann will go out of their way to welcome you and ensure that your stay will long be remembered.

Stayed October 2004

We have just returned from the most wonderful weekend break at the award winning Oaks Hotel. A warm and very friendly welcome awaits you on arrival and nothing is too much trouble for the owners. Their attention to every detail pays dividends as you cannot fault this hotel. Breathtaking seaviews from the bedrooms and the most fantastic countryside all around the quaint village, makes a holiday here a very memorable one. We are already planning our next trip.
