“January 14 Visit and Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

Simply put this is the best B&B we have stayed in. Ideally located to provide access to Porlock, Dunster and Exmoor, and right on the A39 giving you ease of travel east and west across North Devon.
We went for a weekend break and liked the sound of this B&B so thought we'd give it a go; what a great call! We were met by our hosts, Steve and Sally, and made to feel right at home straight away. The rooms were perfect and had everything you need. What a fantastic touch to offer guests complimentary pre-dinner drinks and nibbles in the very spacious lounge in front of a beautiful inviting fire.
After great night's sleep we were given a hotel standard choice of breakfast which really set us up for the day ahead on Exmoor. We left with a warm send-off.
We will be back in the spring when Dunster Castle opens and we will stay here, no doubt whatsoever.

We had a super weekend, we can highly recommend a visit. The house and garden are lovely. The room was spacious and nicely decorated, super breakfast, we also had an excellent home cooked evening meal. Steve and Sally were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble, we will definitely visit again.

We stayed here for our annual Exmoor New Year walking break. This is an interesting building, well located just on the outskirts of the town, with pleasant grounds. The service from Steve and Sally was excellent in all respects. We walked for two days, the first day to the East taking in Bossington and Selworthy and the second day on the other side of the town taking in Porlock Weir, Culbone and beyond. Great walking, and the car stayed put at Exmoor Country House ! We ate at the Ship Inn one night ( all good ) and had a meal at the B & B the next night which was very good value. Recommended.

Excellent!

The hosts could not have been more helpful finding local attractions to visit.
Very clean and tidy room which was a great size, easy walking to the centre of Porlock. Lovely breakfast, at a time that suited us.
Highly recommended, would definitely stay again, only for longer next time!

We stayed at Exmoor House for one night last week...... what a great place! The hosts, Sally and Steve were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and we slept really well! We will be back for a longer stay very soon. I would certainly recommend Exmoor House as a place to stay if you wish to visit this area. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

Stayed for one night with a group of friends. The location is easy walking distance in to town with good facility's. The hosts at Exmoor house are very welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble. The bedroom was a great size, as was the bathroom and all of it was lovely and clean. Great breakfast too. I will return.

We were attending a local Land Rover Experience event in Devon and found Exmoor house on google. The hosts were absolutely fabulous, nothing is too much trouble. We booked a couple of rooms to accommodate the children too, both rooms spotlessly clean, well stocked and comfy.

Can't wait to return ...

Room Tip: we had a look at all the rooms (we were the first of a big group) all rooms lovely. we had room 2...
