We stayed at Sampson Barton Guest House for one night on our way to Cornwall. We arrived early and needed to get changed somewhere, and Bev was good enough to make us a pot of tea with biscuits while she got our room ready early. We were looked after throughout and were made to feel as if nothing would be... More

Stayed at the Sampson Barton guest house when visiting the area for a wedding. Arrived at 9pm on the Friday night so checked in and was advised that we could still get dinner down the road at the castle pub, which was excellent. The B&B was superb, so quiet and peaceful, and our room was a good size and very... More

We arrived after a long journey from Brighton, to be greeted with tea and scones (freshly warmed from the oven!) and we knew we were onto a winner. Breakfasts were first class, and the entire guest house was clean yet cosy. It is out in the middle of beautiful countryside, so takes a while to get everywhere but worth it... More

A great place to stay if you are visiting the area or passing through. Delicious menu changes everyday and they were wonderfully helpful to my partner who is recovering from cancer. Pretty garden for sundowners

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
