We were looking for somewhere near Exmoor and the North Devon Coast to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Having read the reviews we were 'sold' on Bracken House. However the reality surpassed the expectation. Guy and Sue were most welcoming, the Jeeves room was wonderfully decorated, the bed was so comfortable and Lottie the dog was a big favourite too.

We chose Bracken House B&B as our usual self-catering accommodation for New Year, was booked. Guy and Sue and the family made us feel very much at home. Super-comfortable bed (we stayed in Jeeves), and the room spacious and airy and choc-full of interesting books. The en-suite shower room, with fluffy towels and robes, is warm and inviting on a...

Last week we stayed for a second time this year at Bracken House. David was recovering from heart problems and Guy and Sue could not have been more welcoming and charming. Their home becomes your home and especially this time, it felt as though we were staying with friends. Food was totally delicious and loved having Sue and Guy eat... More

A trip to North Devon to visit places where we used to live.We were made welcome from the very start by Sue, Guy, Lottie and Pepper. Our room was very comfortable with the best bed I've slept in for a long time!!! With great views and dark nights. Treated as friends rather than guests, the whole week was a relaxing... More

He suggested a fabulous place for supper and dare I say it drove us there in his car with the top down...breathtaking!! The bed was sumptuous...the furniture... More

Lovely country home with 3 bedrooms available. Beautiful furniture and fittings. Very quiet and peaceful and the hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Grand old former rectory and hotel now a family home and guest house.

I had a lovely one night stay at Bracken House. Fabulous views and Guy and Sue are the nicest hosts! I can't recommend it highly enough for a short stay in Exmoor. Only three bedrooms so you really feel at home and are made extremely welcome as soon as you arrive
