We enjoyed our January stay. The inn is a great base for walking or going wider out into the moor. Food was excellent and enjoyed the draft beer too. The inn has been undergoing modernisation but still retains lots of old work country charm in the bar. We'll return

Nothing to find fault with at all. Been to a lot of hotels etc and there is usually something not quite right but this was just right. The food was up to good hotel standard but good value. Run by a hard working family team.

Lovely rooms and excellent breakfasts. Although we live locally we have stayed a couple of times recently to avoid driving home after parties locally! So although we haven't eaten dinner there, we have thoroughly enjoyed both stays and look forward to the next one. Both bedrooms we stayed in were warm and well-appointed.

We stayed one night between Christmas and new year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Despite a family emergency at the hotel and a warning they were short staffed and serving a limited menu, everything was wonderful. The room was very clean and comfy and the food was very good. Lovely peaceful location with lots of walking and riding close by.... More

Good central moorland location, wonderful meals and room. First time back on Exmoor for many years (growing family and Grandchildren). Wifi very useful for emergencies, but having said that there is still a landline(remember those ! ). The moors only feet away, almost no light pollution. Great stay with great hosts and staff well recommended !

A lovely bolthole in a quiet location; excellent for walkers and dog lovers especially. Many varied Exmoor walks from the Inn but this isn't really a village with no shop but another hotel and a tea room. However it is a beautiful escape to a quiet and peaceful inn with a genuinely warm welcome and wonderful food and comfortable bedrooms.... More

A lovely warm welcome. Room was very comfortable, with generous tea/coffee etc. Evening meals were good. Throughout our stay every effort was made to ensure that we had all we needed. Good attention to detail. The hotel is central for visiting coast and moorland, with lovely walks on the doorstep. This was our second visit. I'm sure we'll be back.... More

This was our second visit, it is so relaxing here, friendly staff, good food, and a short walk across the road to take our dog for a run, not much to do in the area but who cares, we just love the peace and quiet and will certainly come back.

We spent 3 comfortable days at the Forest Inn and were very pleased with the facilities provided. Comfortable room, friendly staff and excellent cuisine, our dog enjoyed it as well! Ideally suited for walking and trips to Lynmouth & Lynton.
