We spent two nights at this well positioned Hotel, set in the beautiful Exe valley. The hosts Me and Martyn were wonderful hosts. The welcome with tea, coffee and cake at the fireside was a lovely touch. The evening meal which can be ordered earlier, was of great quality. The only negative was our room was not always warm.

We recently spent a very pleasant couple of days at The Bark House with one of the deciding factors being that it was dog friendly. Found it to be very comfortable and spacious (room 6) and Martin and Mel were good hosts. Had the best in-room selection of teas/coffees we have come across and dog facilities are excellent - just...

I stayed at the Bark House for the new year period with my son and his girlfriend. Mel and Martin could not have been more welcoming including a warm welcome to our ancient Irish terrier Hattie of whom they made a great fuss. My back was stiff after a lot of driving and they bought a hotvwater bottle specially to... More

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.
