This was recommended by local artist and art teacher Tony Williams. The house itself is a typical old country house with sloping walls and floors and, from the outside, nothing special to look at. The gardens are well maintained and quite charming. The guest house is run by a friendly and attentive couple. The inside has been refurbished tastefully and... More

Stayed recently for festival and Bev couldn't of helped more if she tried, absolutely lovely room and food. Would definitely stay there again esp if festival returns next year. You felt like an old friend and got addressed by first names as soon as you walked in, how Bev managed that I'll never know. Great relaxed atmosphere and credit to... More

Stayed here in July whilst visiting a festival locally. The Guest House completely exceeded my expectations which were high anyway. The grounds are perfectly kept and beautiful and ll rooms spotless. The food was fantastic and the hospitality second to none. Such wonderful people have made this guest house the best I've stayed in. We had a relaxing stay, nothing... More

From the moment of arrival we were made to feel at home and nothing was too much trouble for Bev or Neil. The house is just as we had hoped, full of charcter and spotlessly clean. Our bedroom was lovely and was available to us at any time. There was no feeling of having to go out as soon as... More

Calm and relaxing, superb welcome and food. There is so much Bev and neil could show most other hotels we have stayed at about looking after guests, which is not the same as "customer care." Thank you both....looking forward to our next trip

Approach After negotiating the winding narrow lanes of Devon via a tempramental Sat Nav, we arrived at Sampson Barton Guest House on the Friday evening of our weekend stay. We were greeted by the proprietor, Bev, and treated to a delicious Devon Cream tea! The house dates from 1600 so boasts huge fireplaces and lots of history. I should imagine... More

Words can't describe this guest house. Bev & Neil certainly are the perfect hosts. The whole house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Although our room was small the facilities were still great and it certainly wouldn't stop me from staying in that room again, and we did book late! We certainly recommend eating there in the evenings as the... More

Kings Nympton. Sampson Barton Guest House. Ideally situated for a tour of Exmoor, Somerset Coastal and North Devon, RHS Rosemoor is a short drive and worth a visit. After an exhausting day touring through the delightful countryside, the best treat is to arrive back at Sampson Barton and indulge the hospitality of Beverly and Neil, A bit difficult to find...
