We've just spent a week here on a walking holiday and this has been a brilliant base. The usual high quality HF food, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and excellent facilities including lovely and well-tended grounds, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a small croquet lawn, a big heated boot room (essential for a walking holiday), good parking, and lots...

My wife and I were part of a group of nineteen enjoying a four nights HF Holidays break. Most of us were booked in for Guided Walking, the remainder enjoying Country House Breaks. The location was perfect for both types of holiday, and the weather turned out to be much drier than forecast. Our room was spacious and well maintained,... More

Wonderful scenery. Beautiful rooms, each a little different in fabrics and colours. excellent boot and equipment area. Plenty of choice for all meals, and a good standard of cuisine. Perfect for a walking holiday or just a stay in the country. Buses to Lynton. Pretty garden area around manor house. Friendly atmosphere, ideal for solo travellers.

Set just off the A39, but miles out of Minehead (its postal address) this is a lovely old house owned by the NT but rented out to HF holidays for their walking holidays. Their guests are mainly retired people who enjoy communal walking holidays. For meals one sits round a large table with other guests waiting for good wholesome (not... More

I have just recently returned from a five day stay at this hf hotel. The hotel, setting and surrounding areas were perfect for our group. The staff gave excellent service, attention and help in all they did. The food was excellent amazing choice. Lovely surrounding areas to travel to. Seeing the Exmoor ponies wandering around on the Moor was a... More

To be honest I found it difficult to find anything I didn't like about Holnicote House! I have just returned from a five day stay with a group of 40 others - each year a different location is chosen and we spend the time walking and sightseeing. This is the fourth HF hotel I have stayed in with this group... More

Like many others, I came here as part of an HF Guided Walking holiday. Staff welcoming and room was good and spacious. It was just a little too warm and I had a problem opening the sash window, but staff soon rectified this and I was happy and comfortable. Food was delicious with many choices. Weather was wonderful and I... More

We were at the hotel as part of an HF Activity holiday in September 2015. Room The room was a good size as we had paid extra for a Premium room. There was plenty of storage space, including drawers.

This is National Trust property run by HF Holidays. We have now used several HF Holiday Hotels, being regular walkers with that company, and the 'Notable Feature' about them is the way in which their Staff Teams deliver consistently high quality, courteous, cheerful and attentive service. True, these holidays in which we participate are organised 'Group Holidays', so the staff... More

We went on a guided walking holiday for a week. Wasn't very accessible by public transport, the nearest railway station is Taunton, 50 miles away (unless you count the preserved railway line at Minehead, though it doesn't connect to the main line). There is an infrequent bus route there. As we travelled by train, we got off the train at... More
