The Royal Oak at Withypool was recommended to us by a friend so we were a little taken aback when we drove into the inn car park. It looked a little run down and in need of some decorative attention. We were booked in to stay for three nights so we entered our room with some trepidation. The room was not as large as we might have expected and was a bit on the creaky side. The bathroom was a decent size with a large victorian style roll edge bath and shower overhead. My wife and I decided we would make the most of our break so we were determined not to be negative about things - we did not have to worry.
The bed was so comfortable and the room so quiet (after closing time) we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
The food was very good and the staff were all local and very friendly.
The location is superb - miles from anywhere and no mobile phone coverage - absolute bliss.
If you are put off by old buildings and need your up-to-date amenities this place is not for you. But if you want a unique and genuine English inn this is it.
