We have just returned from a three day break at Exford Youth Hostel. This hostel is located in the middle of the most beautiful scenery and well worth using as the base for a walking holiday. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms perfectly adequate and comfortable - also - what a beautiful wild garden, enjoyed watching a heron come down to feed from the river which runs through it. The evening food is pretty much frozen pie and chips variety but you cant have everything and there are two good pubs in the village.
We were very sad to find out however, this is yet another hostel that the YHA is thinking of closing. We spoke to businesses in the village who were also worried at its impending demise. How come the YHA cant successfully run a hostel like this, which is tailor made for walkers, pony trekkers, cyclists etc, and is very welcoming to families? All the things the YHA is supposed to be promoting. Go now before it closes!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is a great location for mountain biking, horse riding and a host of other outdoor activity breaks - making it perfect for school trips. For a weekend away in lovely Exmoor National Park accommodation, try this large Victorian house by the River Exe. There are open hills and wooded valleys to explore if you're on a walking holiday and the Somerset and North Devon coasts are nearby. ... more less
