We had two nights here including an evening meal on the night of arrival (great quality and good value). Guy, the host, is a delightful conversationalist with much local knowledge and many interesting tales. He is happy to socialise but left us free to decide when we wanted the company. He takes great delight in perfecting the guest experience. Excellent... More

This needs to be our little secret, otherwise it will get very over-subscribed and the price will go up!! Bracken House occupies a very pastoral setting and a tranquil, peaceful, location. Great central position for moors and coast. Guy & Sue are your very genial hosts and as widely commented upon are most helpful and contribute greatly to a very... More

Comfortable, relaxed and friendly, and, so long as you discuss with your hosts in advance, may well take well behaved dogs into their home as well (many Exmoor pubs do the same). Plenty of outdoor things to do straight out the front door. Easy car parking, and breakfast just right to set you up for the day. Our bedroom was... More

Beautiful quiet rural location, with wonderful views. Marvellous hosts Guy and Susan will make you feel right at home, and make every endeavour to ensure your stay is a great one. One of the best night's sleep I have had on holiday. Despite being quiet, this location is very central for exploring North Devon, it's coast and Exmoor and many... More

Bracken House is stunning, very rural and peaceful with the most beautiful views. The owners are very welcoming and went out of their way. Food was delicious and very locally sourced (mushrooms from the garden). Bedroom really comfortable and stocked with everything I needed. I made a little friend in the form of their Labrador pup who is one of... More

I stayed here for a week at the end of which I was most reluctant to leave, having been treated almost like a friend of the family rather than as a paying guest! Guy and Sue were the friendliest of hosts, nothing was ever too much trouble, and I can wholeheartedly endorse all the previous positive comments. Suffice to say,... More
