My partner and I chose The Bark House as a place to stay for a 2 night stay in Tiverton & a very good choice it was. We were welcomed very warmly by Rick and Gina when we arrived and asked immediately if we would like tea and banana cake, after having had a 4 hour drive the answer was... More

Fantastic hosts made our stay so special, a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful setting. A great base for North Devon, close to Knighthayes National Trust and Dunster Castle only short drives away. A fabulous evening meal at The Bark house and also at nearby Swan at Bampton. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!

We visited with our friends and were overwhelmed at the kindness and brilliant service we received from Rick and Gina the new owners. Our bedroom was very comfortable with a lovely bay window seat. The location at the foot of Exmoor National Park is brilliant. We took our evening meal here and there was a great choice of menu and... More

The Bark House is set in a stunning location, the bedrooms and all communal areas are lovely and fit beautifully with the style of the house. The hosts Rick, Gina & Barbara are so friendly & welcoming! We had our three year old with us and they couldn't have been more accommodating and happy to have us stay there. We... More

Just back from a 4 night stay. Lovely room, en suite with shower, and all the amenities one would expect. Rick and Gina very attentive and obliging, nothing too much trouble - tea and home-made cake in the lovely orchard near the river just what was required after a day out. The location is gorgeous and easy access to Exmoor.... More

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.

We came down to stay at Bark House which is ideally situated on the edge of beautiful Exmoor. The Hotel is under new management and Gina & Rick made us very, very welcome. 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
