Steve and Sally we're lovely and made us feel right at home. Steve gave us information about the house and the town and was so helpful. Our room was immaculate and had everything we needed and breakfast was to a very high standard. Definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Well, what can I say, except to agree wholeheartedly with all these fantastic reviews. Exmoor Country House has the winning combination of the comfort of a "luxury" hotel, and the friendliness and value of a B & B. Breakfast was delicious, and our evening meal on the first night was superb....We wish we'd eaten there on both nights! Sally and... More

It seems like Steve and Sally, the owners, found the formula: This place is perfect with its friendliness, beauty, and professionality. The location, just above the lovely village Porlock is great, our rooms window were defiantly rooms with a view, of the beauty of exmoor's Landscape. The room , as the all place is - tastefully decorated, and very comfortable... More

Steve and Sally are friendly owners providing great service and excellent food in a spacious and spotless large house - certainly not 'twee West Country'. Steve's welcome was helpful and friendly ; our bedroom was large, the twin beds comfortable, the shower efficient and the go-withs such as water, tea/coffee equipment were all there.

There is a great honesty bar, guest lounge and nice touches like torches for use if walking into town and fresh milk readily available for hot drinks. Although my bathroom wasn't en suite, it was lockable and a wonderfully thick robe provided to get there. The scrambled eggs in the morning were amazing. There seemed to be plenty of parking...

Love the fact this place is getting deservedly great reviews on TripAdvisor and Steve the owner has only just realised and started responding to reviews. We stayed here 18 months ago and it was great then and it seems it still is.

Our party of two 'mature' couples stayed for one night en route to our holiday destination. The reception could not have been more welcoming,warm,helpful and informative. The building was handsome and the bedrooms tastefully and comfortably furnished and spotless. Breakfast was plentiful and of good quality. Need I say more?

thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here with friends. Very warm welcome and interest taken in our comfort from our hosts. Beautiful room 5 is to be commended- tasteful and comfortable with attention to detail. we spend a number of weekends away and this was probably the best value for money yet. Will be looking to return.
