Just dropped in for lunch on the way to Withypool. We weren't sure at first if they were open or if they served non residents, but as soon as we opened the door we were made very welcome. Nice selection of beers and the ploughman's we chose was very good.

They offered tea and biscuits on arrival and happily securely stored our bikes (garage). The room was perfect and hot water was plentiful. We booked an evening... More

The Bark House hosts, Mel and Martin, are kind, helpful and welcoming people. The house itself is immaculately clean. Our room was small, but perfectly adequate...the living room downstairs, with a cosy fire, gave us the space we wished for to enjoy a good read in the evenings. The house is located in a quiet spot, but close enough to... More
