Can not rate this place highly enough. Rooms lovely, and spacious. Food amazing, I am a coeliac and the Chief could not have been more helpful, giving me options not on the menu for me to choose from, even making a gluten free batter so I could have fish and chips. We stayed with our 2 dogs, and they where... More

Just got back from our 3rd stay at The Exmoor Forest Inn & once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We (including our dogs) are always made to feel welcome. Our room was clean & spacious but had a cosy feel. We ate in the restaurant both nights & had delicious home cooked meals both times. Breakfast was very good... More

The Exmoor Forest Inn is simply a wonderful old hotel set in the very heart of beautiful Exmoor. The rooms are quaint not modern but extremely comfortable and warm. All the usual conveniences are provided and the rooms are fastidiously clean. The food at the hotel is excellent with gourmet options as well as hearty pub food. The bar is... More

Arrived quite early to check into a room but were immediately shown to our room and the guest lounge where we were brought cups of tea and an ice pack for my injured knee. Also got to cuddle up to there 2 adorable spaniels - just what you need after a hard mornings walk!

My wife and I and two dogs stayed at the Inn for two nights over the New Year and had a wonderful time. If you have dogs you'll live this place. The rooms are quaint and spotlessly clean and the quality of the ho,me cooked food is really good. We dined in the small restaurant both nights and really enjoyed... More

Dropped in for lunch today and had the lamb rump, cooked to perfection, thank you. Staff friendly and restaurant clean and tidy, dog welcomed and water provided for it on request. Would recommend a visit.

We booked three nights here, a dog friendly room without too many stairs which was discussed on the telephone at the time of booking . Slightly disconcerted by our room which was up two flights, second flight very steep both for us and the dog! Anyway nice comfortable room so we settled in! Good supper in the hotel And excellent...

I have now visited four times and stayed overnight twice within the last few years. My latest stop over with friends was as good as they have always been-exceptional. First class food, quality accommodation, lovely beers and an inspiring location. Fabulous hosts to boot. We will return in the near future to try out their newly converted cottage accommodation.
