This is a fantastic B&B in a magnificent surrounding. The room I stayed in was big and fully equipped, so was the bathroom. There was nothing missing; everything was thought of. The breakfast was in a nice room with a grand piano and a harp; the breakfast was nicely cooked and presented by Guy, a very friendly, helpful and forthcoming... More

Bracken House is a great place to stay - a very warm welcome on arrival and complimentary pot of tea. Stunning room and bathroom and a great breakfast to boot. Guy and Sue are fantastic and very friendly hosts - can thoroughly recommend the experience.

I stayed at Bracken House for one night on business. On arrival, I received a lovely welcome from Guy, who suggested I sit in the garden whilst he fetched me a tray of tea. Garden is an understatement for the marvellous grounds that surround this beautiful house. Sue then came out to see me, and of course Lottie the black... More

Two weeks ago we spent a wonderfully relaxing two days at Bracken House with Guy and Sue Sheratt. This was our fourth visit and it now feels like staying with old friends. Their newest bedroom, with an enormous four poster bed is fabulous, with beautiful views from both windows and the bathroom with separate shower room certainly has the Wow!... More

I stayed for two nights whilst on business in the Barnstaple area and had the downstairs bedroom. It was an extremely comfortable and quiet bedroom and I didn't want to get up in the morning as the bed was so restful. Guy made me feel very welcome and the breakfast (cooked to order) was delicious. Will definitely stay there again... More

We came to Devon to visit family and was glad to find somewhere as comfortable and relaxing as Bracken House.We arrived early and received a warm welcome along with a welcome cuppa. The room and bathroom facilities were superb and well appointed - we slept very well indeed in an extremely comfortable bed !

We had two nights in this pretty house which is a former rectory. The accommodation is traditional and comfortable, and guests are made to feel very welcome. You feel as though you are part of the family and have come to stay with old friends. Guy made us delicious breakfasts as Sue was dashing hither and thither with her harp.... More

The owners were very welcoming, made us feel at home. Lovely night's sleep, comfortable bed. The setting is beautiful with a walk along a footpath, where you can view lots of bluebells, primroses etc. Bracken House is in the process of starting a wedding package, the photographs will be amazing for the album. Sue (owner) is a harpist, how lovely... More

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.
