From the small touches in all of the rooms to the superb nibbles and breakfast. Steve even took time out of his day to guide us to points of interest in his... More

We stayed at the Exmoor Country House as part of our South West Coastal path treks and simply loved the place. Accommodation was high quality and comfortable , food well presented and delicious , hosts extremely accommodating and friendly. Lovely area around Porlock - great for exploring Exmoor. Couldn't recommend it more highly - we will be back for sure.
