I was put in charge of organising a girls 'get together' weekend, free from husbands, partners and children. Scrolling the internet I came accross Tarr Farm on a search engine having decided Exmoor was the area to spend a couple of nights. It was fate, Tarr Farm had a "Fitness and Pamper" special offer on for the weekend. I booked immediately.
We arrived early Friday evening and had drinks on the terrace. They had organised for us to walk along the banks of the River Barle to their sister hotel, the Royal Oak Inn at Withypool. This took little over the hour. We had a superb dinner at the Oak and after were taken back to Tarr Farm where a candle lit bathroom was waiting for us along with a hot bath with aromotherapy oils - Bliss.
After a delicious breakfast, (I had chosen a detoxing smoothie, poached eggs with smoked haddock) we were given the choice of either walking, cycling or horse riding. Whatever we chose we were to all meet up at lunchtime for a suptious picnic. It was amazing. The setting was out of this world. Two of us decided to walk and what was lovely was that Judy, the proprietor came along too. The other two in our group chose to cycle. By the time we returned back to the hotel tired and aching (a bit!) from all the fresh air, three fully trained people in Thai massage were waiting to do a treatment on us privately in our own room. That evening we enjoyed a wonderful dinner and a much needed bottle of wine.
The following morning after a long lie in and a leisurely breakfast we reluctantly checked out. I can see why they have been awarded 5 stars.
