To get away from it all and enjoy luxurious comfortable and beautiful facilities, together with all the delights of Exmoor and the North Devon Coastal Path, look no further than the Old Rectory. Fantastic food and wonderful hosts - a real treat and the opportunity to re-charge the batteries!

What a little gem of a hotel, situated on the Exmoor National Park. Stayed for three nights, and enjoyed the hospitality of the owners Sam and Huw, who looked after us admirably throughout our stay. Highly recommended.

Very professional. Good attention to detail. Many of the guests were celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. Other guests return year after year and most stay several nights.The owners really appeared to enjoy their work as did their staff.
