This quaint b&b is in an wonderful location in the Devon countryside. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Food is fantastic quality and standard so I would suggest you take a spare set of clothes in a bigger size.....you will need them!! Lovely outside garden space.

Lovely location. A very enjoyable stay whilst visiting the area. On arrival we were greeted with tea/coffee home made scones, cream and jam ( a lovely touch) Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, prepared to order and considering there were seven of us in our party our breakfasts were served together and were piping hot. Nothing too much trouble... More

My 7yr old son & I stayed one night at Sampson Barton & it was lovely from start to finish. The place is well situated just outside South Molton & near to Kings Nympton. From initial online booking I received a prompt & welcoming confirmation note & immediately felt confident with my choice. We received a warm welcome on arrival... More

We stayed at the Sampson Barton Guest House for one night in May and had a lovely time. The guest house is on a narrow country lane but we followed the directions that Bev and Neil sent and had no problems finding the place. We were made to feel really welcome on our arrival, with a lovely cream tea! Our... More

A comfortable converted farm situated on the edge of Exmoor in rolling countryside with quiet lanes and walkways that you can explore on foot. Leave your car parked safely in the farm yard and walk to Kings Nympton to enjoy the thatched buildings and a good lunch and pint at the Grove. We were made to feel welcome as soon... More

Magical, tranquil, beautiful - a wonderful place to stay with the best hosts you could ask for. Clean, comfortable rooms with homemade biscuits on your hostess tray. An inglenook in the guest lounge with a glass of wine or coffee and after dinner mints. Just wonderful to relax in after a spectacular 3 course dining experience that will take some... More

Twelve of us recently stayed at Sampson Barton for 2 nights for a family celebration. From the moment we walked into a warm welcome and a cream tea, everything was perfect. Bev and Neil worked hard to make sure we all had a wonderful time. Comfortable accommodation; delicious breakfasts. Neil's dinner menus were interesting and imaginative - the food could... More

You keep going and you keep going and then there it is. A haven of peace. Great room, excellent breakfast and a great location. I wish we had had time to walk in the area but there were other things we planned on doing. And thanks to Bev for being such a great host.

Just returned from a week with Neil and Bev who run the Sampson Barton Guest House and Restaurant. Everything was a joy from the spotless, warm bedrooms to the lounge with massive stone fireplace and log fire, to the amazingly good food. A different dinner menu each day and a choice of 3 dishes for starter, main and sweet. Some... More

I stayed here for two nights in the summer of 2014 with my adult daughter while we were conducting some genealogy research. Sampson Barton Guest House is located in farmland along a narrow Devon lane between George Nympton & Kings Nympton about 5km from South Molton. It was originally built in the 1600's and is full of character. Our room... More
