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.

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.
