Had a lovely stay here. Evening meal was excellent. Good breakfasts with local produce. We had a cream tea in the garden, which felt very decadent (proper clotted cream & homemade scones & jam - yum!) Room was comfortable, hosts were great. Thanks!

We spent two nights here in July 2014 and were impressed with everything - the friendly welcome, the excellent walking tips and the fantastic breakfast. There are so many lovely spots in this part of Devon.

We chose The Bark House as place to stay as we were given a voucher as a Christmas present and we were not disappointed at all. We had a very warm welcome when we arrived and were given a hand with our luggage when we arrived. It was very easy to find and was in a stunning location. Very big... More

A very warm welcome and wonderful hospitality. We had afternoon tea and delicious cake in the orchard and a beautiful walk in the riverside meadows. Very comfortable room and plentiful full breakfast.

We stayed 11-13 April 2014. Yet again an excellent welcome from Mel and Martin and we put in to room 6, which we haven't used before, and found it to be very spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean. We bring our dogs here as a treat for them and they are made equally welcome but you would never know dogs have... More

We stayed at this b&b in April and had a really lovely stay. Our two dogs were welcome and also enjoyed being away with us. The room was quirky and very clean. The bed was very comfy and the food was to die for. Martin and Mel couldn't have been more friendly but knew when to give you space as... More

Lovely food but the rooms needed a lot of attention. Very dusty. Whole establishment very run down except downstairs which has recently been replaced because of flood damage. Garden very over run. Such a pity as the whole outlook of the place on the web page looks so good.
