This is a very good B&B. We have just spent one night there. The welcome was very friendly. The rooms are very spacious, immaculately clean and well-equipped. The breakfast is very good - both for a traditional English or if you want something a but more unusual. All made using local ingredients. A nice home-cooked brownie and cup of tea on arrival.

The whole place is tastefully decorated. It is more like staying in a nice country house than a B&B, and is as far removed from the normal, stereotypical British B&B as it is possible to get. It is very quiet.

In every respect an ultra high standard b&b. Breakfast amazing, same goes for service. Good
location near the national park. Though Exford is a really small village there is a choice between several good restaurants, pubs and more casual eating.

We just spent the May bank holiday weekend at Edgcott House and couldn't recommend it more highly! Simon and Penny were wonderful hosts, Room 5 had an amazing comfy bed, wonderful bathroom and great afternoon tea cakes left for us each afternoon! Penny's breakfast selection was incredible and Simon helped us plan our walks/bike rides. There's a decent pub within 5 minutes walk too - what more could you ask for??

We are walkers and enjoy North Somerset. We have stayed here several times over the past 12 months and it is simply the best b&b we have ever stayed in.
The attention to details is great and there are a number of personal touches that we have not experienced before.
The rooms are spotless and the bathrooms are really good.
The hosts are lovely and the breakfast is absolutely wonderful. I am a vegan and they catered for me and then some.

I would challenge anyone to find somewhere that could beat this place.

I stayed in Edgcott House over 3 nights during Easter 2013. Apart from the initial problems of finding it, everything else was just perfect. Penny greeted me even before I reached the front door and I found my room cosy and welcoming, and the ensuite very well proportioned with all the amenities I could want.

The "sitting room" was truly a wonderful place to relax, sit by the log fire and read a book from their vast selection, ranging from gardening, cooking, cars, lifestyle, and fiction.

The Breakfast. Oh my. What can I say? Penny's cooking is better than going out to a restaurant or cafe for breakfast. It's a full menu of choices, and every item sounds delicious. I wish I had the capacity to try everything!

Simon is a wealth of local knowledge and also acts as a tour advisor in case you are at a loss of what to do or where to go. Extra marks for Jovi the gorgeous cat who came to say hello after breakfast!

This is simply the best B&B style property we have stayed in. All the plaudits on TripAdvisor are more than justified. The bedrooms are well appointed with most comfortable mattresses; the main room downstairs where you have breakfast and can sit by the log stove is a wonderful room - it is worth seeing in its own right and I do not recall it featuring on their website.

The hosts have it just right in terms of their welcome and the way they are there to help. But as others have written this house must offer "the best breakfast in Britain". It is simply wonderful. Everything is fresh and the range of tastes catered for immense.

I could write a lot more in equally glowing terms, but all I can do is urge you to stay here in the heart of Exmoor and to enjoy a fabulous property.

B & B does not do Edgcott House justice. This is top quality hotel standard accommodation and breakfast. In fact, I've never had such a quality breakfast. The presentation, taste, choice and service are all top notch and I am truly jealous that I cannot produce this at home! My waistline would probably be thankful that I cannot! We were offered the choice of a larger room upon arrival and accepted this kind offer and continued to be pleasantly surprised by the extra touches. The flapjack and quality teas in the room, the organic toiletries topped up daily, the beautifully comfortable room, personal controls on the heating, the abundant bookcase, the beautiful surroundings, and... a true highlight for us.. use of the lovely heated bootroom to store our wet hiking gear and the dog towels we had been offered. WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO DESCRIBE ALL THE TOUCHES THAT MADE THIS AN AMAZING STAY. TOP MARKS.

Room Tip: The Owner is so approachable, just ask.
