As other reviews have stated the hotel is well signposted. We stayed at the hotel as it has a no refund policy, therfore the owners let us transfer dates rather than loose out money.

We stayed in moorlands self catering dean suite. Very clean and comfortable. This suite has a garden so was perfect for our dog. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. There are lots of stunning places to see just a short drive away. Thank you :-)

In september 2011 I stayed in the upstairs Bodley Suite and was very impressed and I was equally satisfied with the Dean apartment. Being situated on the ground floor with the entrance into the kitchen (with a tiled floor) was very handy... More

I stayed at Moorlands last weekend in the Bodley Suite. I was thoroughly satisfied with the accommodation which was very clean, comfortable, quiet and well equipped. Moorlands is well placed for walking and other attractions. The accommodation was very reasonably priced and represents excellent value for money. As we were self-catering we did not have any meals but the option... More

Beautiful old country home turned hotel in the middle of Exmoor. Beautiful views over farmland toward coast, which is reachable via paths from hotel. Friendly owners, lovely straightforward breakfast. Lots of privacy. Nice toiletries and tea/coffee in room. Games and books for rainy days. Note that breakfast starts at 8:30 a.m.

The hotel is in a lovely location. Rooms are very comfortable. The host couple were very friendly, went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as they could. We had some problems with airlock in the bathrooms but was solved very swiftly. Food was delicious and very fresh. Overall, a fantastic and relaxing break. Downside, no mobile... More
