On a last minute surf trip to north Devon we booked a room here and couldn't have been happier! A beautiful house in an idyllic setting with rolling hills and stunning views. Our bedroom was spacious with a huge bed and luxurious roll top bath. In the morning we had a lovely breakfast with the fantastic service. Close enough to... More

We only stayed for one night as we were passing through the region but would have stayed for much longer if we had the time. A lovely building situated in the quite rolling hills of Devon and decorated to a high standard. The owners were so helpful, warm and friendly and recommended great places to eat. Breakfast hit the spot... More

Guy and Sue are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and you instantly feel at home. The Wodehouse suite is pure luxury and the breakfasts are delicious. Our stay was extra special given we also got married at Bracken House. My sister commented it was one of the most romantic weddings she had ever been to, we would have to... More

This delightful B&B is situated in beautiful Devon countryside. It has very comfortable and attractive rooms with lovely views. Welcoming and friendly hosts who are on hand at all times. I liked the family style arrangement for (very substantial) breakfast which helped to foster a homely atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend Bracken House to any... More

Enjoyed 5 nights in this delightful house set in a beautiful part of North Devon. Nothing was too much trouble for our friendly hosts, Sue and Guy (not forgetting the beautiful Lottie!). Our room was spacious, extremely comfortable and always spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the beautiful dining room was always delicious with a wide choice and attention to detail. In... More

Guy and Sue made you feel instantly welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble and were always at hand if you needed something. The food is of a high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our home-cooked breakfasts - especially the crêpes. Lottie the Labrador is a star too! We highly recommend Bracken House.

Excellent idyllic & tranquil B&B set in rural Devon. Lovely rooms, hearty breakfast, splendid views. Whats not to like? Spent the evening star gazing and watching meteors in the surrounding gardens unaffected by light pollution of any kind. A really great find - I'll be back!

What a lovely place to stay run by a charming family. A beautiful country house in a charming setting. Good rooms with comfortable beds. The communal breakfast was very good and it was nice to meet the other guests. If you are lucky the lady of the house might be practising the harp which made the stay eeven more special.

Being first time travelers to Devon, we were not sure how the journey would turn out. Fortunately, experiencing this charming place opened up a whole new horizon for my family and I. The English countryside has so much touristic value to offer - one may think it is expensive, hard to get to, etc. Luckily for us, we booked the... More

My wife and i enjoyed our short stay in May 2016, made all the more enjoyable by 'dropping on' with the weather.
