Just returned from 3 nights at the Dunkery Beacon with my parents and 2 children aged 9 and 6. What a fantastic place! Really its all been said already but Derek and Beccy are fantastic hosts from the moment you arrive with welcoming tea and homemade cake, delicious breakfasts, and endless help and advice about where to go and what to do, including pubs and restaurants to visit in the evenings. They work so hard to make sure you have a great time, its tiring just watching them and they are absolutely brilliant with kids, even annoying ones like mine! The hotel itself is spotless and rooms are really comfortable with fantastic views. The garden is lovely place to relax and meet their 4 dogs (who very nearly became 3 as my boys wanted to smuggle one out to take home). There is much to do in the local area and I have vowed to return and walk on the moor and try and capture a glimpse of the majestic stags that Derek managed to photograph so beautifully while we were there. All in all, Derek and Beccy made us feel like old friends rather than paying guests, a rare skill I'd say, and I can only echo the sentiments of another guest - I want to wholeheartedly recommend the Dunkery Beacon, but only so long as it doesn't become so popular that I can't book a room next time I want to visit!! Go and treat yourself, you won't be disappointed!
