Spent 3 nights at this wonderful B&B with my wife and her parents as we were attending a wedding in the vicinity. Cannot recommend the location highly enough as a quiet getaway on the edge of Exmoor with wonderful views from all our rooms (which were on all three floors) - the access roads are somewhat narrow but add to...

Thank you for writing such a great review. It was lovely having you all to stay and enjoy The Dunkery Beacon and Exmoor and we hope that it was the restful break that you wanted. Exmoor is such a popular choice now for weddings with all the beautiful locations and views all around. If you are down this way, do... More

From gorgeous lemon curd cake on arrival through to hand shakes and hugs on departure, our time at The Dunkery Beacon was just perfect. The idyllic views and spacious room were worth the trip alone; combine these with the friendliest of hosts, loads of sound advice on where to go and what to do and generous breakfasts and you have...

So glad you had such a great time with us on Exmoor and I hope your legs have recovered from the ‘stroll’ up Dunkery Beacon! I can remember the first time we were able to get away without the children and of course we came to Exmoor. The experience of being to able to conduct a conversation without any interruptions...

A very superior bed and breakfast, with clean rooms, good showers (often problematic in many B&Bs), and great breakfasts with locally sourced produce (the sausages are especially fine). The proprietors Beccy and Derek Brown are extremely welcoming and within a few days you feel like you are all friends. My colleagues and I used it as a base for 5... More

We are really looking forward to catching up with you again and meeting your significant other later on this month. Hope that N and B are well and the project is a success.

Dunkery Beacon is a gem of a hotel set in a corner of England which is usually bypassed by those in search of Devon and Cornwall. They do not know what they are missing for Exmoor is an area of peace and solitude and the welcome and hospitality afforded by Beccy and Derek is first class. They have struck the... More

What a lovely review and many thanks for taking so much time to write it. It’s so satisfying to know that all my training had paid off and Derek is beginning to grasp the finer arts of toast delivery timing (such a delicate process). I am considering putting him forward for his level 2 (but on reflection it may be... More

Is was our second stay at the beautiful Hotel/B&B, the owners are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. Warm and friendly the house is inviting and spotless. Our twin room was at the top of the house giving wonderful views across the open countryside. When I chatted to other residents it transpires that most are returning visitors... Mostly there for...

We could find no fault with this small hotel where we stayed for 3 nights B&B. We had a lovely room with wonderful views and the owners were really freindly and helpful. The breakfasts are really very good. The village is reached via very narrow lanes and is very quiet and really prettry and close to other old and interesting... More

Many thanks for your very kind comments and its good to hear that you had such a good time while staying with us. I know that some people find the narrow lanes a little difficult to navigate when they first come to Exmoor but the good thing is that you soon learn to master the art of reversing! The moor...

Fantastic short break walking with our dog in this beautiful part of the country. Our stay was made extra special by the location and comfort of the Dunkery Beacon House Hotel but most of all by the warm and genuine hospitality afforded to us by the owners Beccy and Derek. We would thoroughly recomend this hotel. Nigel, Janet and Max

A colleague recommended this Country House Hotel and we were definitely not disappointed !! Our hosts, Beccy and Derek, were so warm and welcoming and nothing was too much for them! They have a wealth of information on places to visit in the locality and will share this with enthusiasm when requested, providing maps to get you there if necessary!... More

This is one of the best places we have stayed at in this country for sheer quality of welcome and service, breakfast, comfort of beds and bed linen, the room itself (we even had our own sitting room) and its view of Exmoor, cleanliness, location, parking, peace and tranquillity.
