This is a quiet area with little on the roads. There are p!entry of places to visit and to eat if you don t eat in. This trip was bought as a...

I don't normally write reviews, but this place was so good I've had to break my habits! Our cosy, well decorated room was characterful and clean. The food was well cooked (great crispy bacon!) and some of it locally sourced. We also had aromatherapy massages which were absolutely brilliant. The river is just across the way and places to walk,...

We arrived on Friday afternoon to a very warm welcome from Gina, Rick and Barbara. Dropped bags in the pretty, comfortable and well-appointed room (number 1) and made our way to the lounge for very welcome tea and freshly baked cakes. What a great start to the weekend. Had dinner at the Bark House, great food, beautifully cooked and well-presented,...

Just had a great weekend at The Bark House. The family made us very welcome.. My husband watched the rugby with them while I had a great shower in our lovely warm room & got ready to go out. He had a beer in the lounge, I had complementary hot chocolate and biscuits in our room, which was absolutely spotless....

We loved our stay at The Bark House, Gina and Rick were lovely hosts and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms we had was recently decorated and was lovely with a view that looked on to the orchard. We enjoyed freshly cooked breakfast every morning. It was a lovely break away for me and my husband.

We had a nice room, and we had lovely breakfasts each morning. We did miss having a chest of drawers to put things in. The hotel is a bit remote, and you need a car or Rick is happy to provide a taxi service to wherever you need to go.

Found the Bark House by chance whilst looking for a cream tea on a Sunday during a stay on Exmoor - what a great accident! We were the only ones in the restaurant (what with it being a Sunday in December) but the owners were happy to welcome us in and provide great service. It really felt homely and welcoming...

We had a gorgeous couple of nights away. Rick Gina and Barbara were excellent hosts and went the extra mile. Our bed in room 6 was really comfortable, and we had a sweet little bathroom. Delicious breakfast in the mornings.
