I am a member of Solent Socialising and we hired this youth hostel on an exclusive basis on 26-28 September 2014. There were 19 of us and we all had a marvelous time. The hostel is very well situated to access all parts of Exmoor. It is also close to an excellent pub...The White Horse. The facilities were typical of... More

Really nice people running it and great location. We stayed 2 nights in August 2014 and found the other guests really nice and the hostel was very quiet at night. Great breakfast and lovely couple in charge. What a shame it is closing next year as we would gladly visit again.

Spent 3 nights here. Booked a family room. A lot of the rooms are in a sort of portacabin extension on the back of the house. this proved to be rather noisy at night. From room 8 we were disturbed by people talking in other rooms........not because they were being loud, but because of the thin walls. Our room was... More

Amazing location, kids would have just stayed on the park for the whole trip given the chance. Central for exploring exmoor, nice pub and cafe, horses and hunting paraphernalia everywhere. Booked family room with ensuite bathroom. Clean, 2 bunk beds to be made and stripped ourselves (Had brought sleeping bags so bedding was a bonus!). As a youth hostel, expected... More

Sorry you didn't find the self catering kitchen where we have lots of cups, glasses and water, it is just in the corner of the dining room and open all night for just such a problem. If you are using YHA in the future it is worth noting that most smaller YHA's have limited opening with reception closed during the... More

Exford YHA is in the lovely Exmoor village of Exford. The staff were friendly and helpful including arranging for us to check in after reception had closed for the night. Every thing was clean and tidy good breakfasts to set you up for the day. As with all youth hostels great value stay. The only downside was while clean and... More

We stayed here as a family of four for one night in May 2014. Our room was titchy, two pairs of bunk beds and a sink, but comfortable. There was enough space for all our luggage.

So glad you had a good stay with us. Unfortunately some of our rooms are a little on the cosy side and we try to allocate them sensitively but as you booked quite late the room you stayed in was all that was left. We also offer ensuite family rooms which would have been better suited to your needs. Maybe... More
