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

From the moment we arrived until we left we were charmed by Guy and Sue! We were offered a cream tea on arrival...Guy joined us along with Lottie and the horses and cat. 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

we stayed two nights and found the room very comfortable ad lots of space. Guy and Sue made us feel very welcome, and my sister spent a long time chatting with Sue about the Harps that Sue has. Lottie the Labrador took us for a long walk, and led us back to the B&B. Breakfast was wonderful, with Guy offering... More

We have travelled the world and this was the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. We booked last minute and arrived exhausted. After a lovely friendly greeting from our hosts we showered and lay in bed looking out onto a quiet forest with the sound of a brook in the background. We had the Jeeves room. It was the... More

some people say they are dog friendly but Bracken House really is! Delightful walks and wonderful scenery - comfortable and welcoming B & B in the most most wonderful setting. Guy and Sue made us very welcome as did Lottie the Labrador. We will look forward to coming again soon.

While attending a family reunion in Barnstaple, UK, we were fortunate to stay 4 nights at the most adorable B&B, The Bracken House. Our host, Guy, ALWAYS made us feel at home in his home. Each morning we'd wake up to the smell of fresch baked bread which went very well with the home made jam. Everything Guy prepared was... More
