“Exmoor at its best”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Our third time to visit here in 2 years. As friendly and welcoming as ever. Huw and Sam are a great team and have succeeded in creating an environment where you feel more like a house guest than a hotel visitor.

Very relaxing, good service and food. Catered for dietary options.
Would stay again, lovely garden.
Afternoon tea and cake a nice touch as were the canapés and pre prandial drinks.
Lovely breakfast nicely presented

A wonderfully situated small Boutique Hotel, catering only for Hotel guests. Five minutes from the North Devon Coastpath with its spectacular scenery. Great quality appointments, lovely rooms, big comfy beds, showers that work! Owners who understand and cater for discerning guests. Friendly, unobtrusive staff. We'll come again to enjoy the Old Rectory and walk the coastpath.

A most comfortable, relaxed and civilised place to stay. Truly lovely surroundings, carefully well-appointed accommodation and excellent food. Definitely understand why the repeat bookings: I trust we shall return.

A super place for a romantic weekend away. Large and comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds and gardens and elegant but relaxed dinning room and orangery. Food was exceptional. Four course evening dinners, home cooked, and really delicious. Complemented with a very well chosen but not overwhelming wine list.
Beautiful and dramatic coastal walks available from the door.

Just about as good as it gets: beautiful house set in stunning countryside; garden brimming with wildflower colour. Huw and Sam blend professional service with real warmth and hospitality so you feel at home from the minute you arrive. The evening meal was a real highlight, from the first bite of the pre-dinner canapes to coffee in the drawing rooms. The food was local and fresh and packed with flavour. Not one course disappointed. There was great advice on local walks (some spectacular coastal walking just a step away). It's honestly hard to criticise this amazing small hotel, maybe a slightly later breakfast on Sunday? But we will be back again and again I suspect.

Hi Barbara

Wow! What a wonderful review - thank you very much!

It was really good to hear that you enjoyed your stay here last week and about how much you enjoyed our food - as you say, we use top quality local ingredients which we think translates into great tasting meals.

Thank you also for your suggestion about later breakfast finishes on Sundays.

We hope to see you again soon!
