We had a lovely relaxing 2 day break in this nice family run B&B. The room was big, quiet and clean. We could use the gratis WIFI (there is no signal at all for mobils in this area). If you are looking for nature, go there. We also had diner in the restaurant and loved the atmosphere.

Food and beer here was good, and good value we arrived at the same time as 3 other couples ordering food and so had quite a wait for service but this was down to the fact we all arrived at the same time, the...

Our room which was at the top of two flights of stairs was bright, spacious and clean with comfortable beds.. The shower room was large andsoaps, shampoos etc. were supplied. Breakfast was well cooked and plentiful. Downsides for us..stairs, very sparse... More

We had just one night at the Exmoor Forest Inn which was a delightful experience. We enjoyed a very pleasant walk towards Cow Castle beside the river which is just yards from the Inn, followed by a lovely early evening drink (or two!) in the garden - a real feel of summer. Our room on the second floor was very... More

The Exmoor Forest Inn is ideally situated for those visiting Exmoor National Park. We walked a beautiful stretch of the coast between Porlock and Lynmouth and were able to drive to Simonsbath in a short space of time at the end of the day. . We received a friendly welcome. The room was en - suite and perfectly adequate for... More

The proprietors were helpful and friendly, although the first impressions of the hotel were somewhat disappointing and a bit sad and in need of some TLC.. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable though and the en-suite had everything one could need so that was a big plus, especially the heated towel rail, as we were back packing we were able... More

My wife and I recently stayed at The Exmoor Forest Inn and enjoyed the atmosphere in this interesting building which has been carefully updated in recent times, without losing the charm of its heritage. The accommodation with friendly service proved to be excellent and the food from an extensive menu all to our liking. It is a family owned business... More
