Set in the centre of Exmoor with the advantage of being in a small village. There is a local shop a couple of doors down from the hotel where we were able to purchase sandwiches for our packed lunch and another pub within walking distance if you want a change of scene in the evening. The hotel is comfortable and... More

We had an evening meal here after a good day's walking. Nice atmosphere , good service and very tasty food. We'll be back. A proper menu...not reheats from a freezer! The belly pork was particularly well cooked and the side accompaniments were great.

We've just had another great stay at The Crown, having not been there for a number of years. It still has the same family-run feel to it. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff.

Well placed for local travel, walks etc . Excellent hotel, very pleasant atmosphere and well looked after. In particular the standard of food in the restaurant would take a lot of beating, and for anyone wanting gluten free meals their was a very wide choice. To sum up, a first class weekend break, and a highly recommended hotel.
