We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment on a bed and breakfast basis. Apartment was really clean and comfortable with good sized lounge and more than adequate kitchenette. Breakfast as good as any we've had. The couple running it couldn't be more accommodating.

When we arrived we felt welcome immediately - we were shown to our private unit which had its own lounge area - a huge bonus for us. We enjoyed a great stay and a top quality breakfast in the morning. Couldn't do enough for us - many thanks for a great stay.

The hotel is situated within acres of tranquil and peaceful gardens, which are ideal for young and old to enjoy.

Stayed for 4 nights in wonderfully equipped self catering apartment. Good location for hiking and general sight seeing. Excellent hosts and reasonable price. The apartment was clean and obviously well cared for. Good wifi reception in hotel lounge, despite remote location. One could not have asked for more. Look forward to paying another visit to this gem of a place.

We arrived an hour early but that was no trouble for the owners. We had booked self-catering and were upgraded from the 1-br apartment to the 2-br apartment on the top floor at no extra cost and what a delightful stay. A much needed break from any human contact, luxurious bath and shower, lovely deep and comfortable bed with crisp... More

My return to Moorlands this time was on my own, to spend 2 days driving at the adjacent Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. The warmth of the welcome felt like coming home and the refurbished single room was truly superb. The grounds in the evening are magical - full of birdsong and beautiful spring flowers. Because I had to leave at... More

We stayed here or a romantic weekend break and found it to be charming and very peaceful. The hosts are lovely and the breakfasts were delicious with a lovely garden view. We stayed in the 2 bed apartment which was cosy and very clean.

We stayed at this hotel but in their one bedroom apartment, it was very clean and comfortable, and lovely and warm . Mark and Desi are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, they welcomed us like old friends. I would highly recommend it for the flexibility of self catering and will definitely go again.
