We stayed 2 nights and it felt like we had joined a house party. The welcome and service was excellent, starting with tea and cake. The food was tasty and beautifully cooked, with Tim making you feel special. The bonus was the after dinner company, many were returning customers and conversations extended into the night.

The food is delicious (and everything made in house). The rooms are extremely comfortable and everything to a high standard. An 80 mile trip over Exmoor in...

We were just passing through and booked The Oaks on basis of previous recommendations. Well it was a treat - very friendly reception, lovely room with a view (number 7) - bed was super comfortable. Nice touches abound - decanter of sherry for pre-dinner, chocolates in the room after dinner and the food was absolutely super. If we're coming this...

This hotel provides a unique experience - we were so well looked after, lovely features like the Roberts radio, beautiful views, and sherry before dinner is fabulous. So comfortable and relaxing.

A hotel which more than lives up to its entry in the Good Hotels Guide. Peaceful and in a very attractive setting The Oaks is the ideal small hotel. It is comfortable and welcoming and owners Tim and Anne Riley go out of their way to make guests feel at home from arrival till it's time for a reluctant departure....
