My wife and I have recently returned home after spending a four day break at the Cutthorne Country Hotel in Wheddon Cross on Exmoor.
Having never stayed there before and uncertain as to what we would find, we looked at previous reviews about the Cutthorne posted on tripadvisor and were not disappointed.
If you want a full on, in your face, lively hotel with mass produced food and local attractions then this would not be for you.
However, if you are looking for a peaceful haven in which to unwind from the rigours of working life, if you want seclusion with fantastic views, if you enjoy walking and if you value good home cooked food and friendly people this should satisfy your every need.
The hotel sits in a secluded spot on a hill just outside of Wheddon Cross and we stayed in the four poster bedroom. The views along the valley from our room were fantastic and each morning we awoke to a birds chorus. It was delightful.
We were greeted by Pam on arrival and her friendly manner made us feel immediately at home. Pam, Patty and Phil looked after us so very well and Pam is such a source of information that we found her invaluable. She is also does the cooking and grows her own vegetables in the garden and these are served for dinner each day. What can be better than to eat fresh vegetables dug from the garden only minutes before.They are truly delicious.
The house is really homely with the smell of wood burning on the fire and you are immediately transported to that "in the country" feel.
The location in the centre of Exmoor makes it a superb hub for exploring, walking or relaxing. The choice is entirely yours.
I would recommend this hotel without hesitation to anyone who wants a break in which they can unwind, chill out and go back home totally relaxed and feel that they have been taken care of.
A huge thank you to Pam, Phil, Ann and Patty.
