Seemed like time to walk the start of the South West Coast Path and the location of Silcombe Farm seemed ideal as a spot to spend a couple of days walking from Minehead to Lynmouth. The location was indeed ideal being just about half way and right on the path. Our room was spacious with a nice view and there... More

Perfect not only for an overnight stay along the SWCP but I imagine also for a couple of days "away from it all". Culborne church is close by. Only disadvantage is that they do not have a website and you need to phone them which is a bit more difficult from abroad and for non-native speakers. Location, room, breakfast hosts,... More

After a long and hard walk from Dunster in the rain, we arrived at Silcombe Farm to a lovely warm welcome from Jane and Henry. Thanks for looking after us and also for driving us to the local for something to eat. Very special place and lovely to stay at. Perfect for walkers doing the South Coastal Way.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and although we were a bit concerned that they didn't have a website our fears were unfounded. Lovely clean spacious rooms, excellent breakfast and nothing was too much trouble for Jane and her husband. To top it all perfect location right on the south west coast path with lovely views of the... More

My partner and I had the most lovely night staying at Silcombe farm. We found it by chance on the internet (no picture of the room )but it just looked a lovely place to stay out in the middle of Exmoor. The room was very big and absolutely gorgeous with a nice chaise longue in it . The landlady was... More

Really enjoyed our 1 night stay at Silcombe Farm in July. Jane was a wonderful host - very friendly and helpful, and was happy to drop us off in Bossington so that we could walk back to the farm for our overnight stay. We opted for an evening meal which was delicious. The room was delightful and the bathroom immediately... More

A lovely farmhouse in a wonderful location on the edge of Exmoor, with superb views over the Bristol Channel. The owners are hospitable and very friendly. Our bedroom was pretty, large and extremely comfortable. The food was amazing - almost all home-grown, and including freshly-baked bread! A real find! We can't wait to go back!

Excellent location for walking the South West Coast Path. It is well signposted from Culbone. Picturesque setting. Very quiet. Colourful garden for sitting outside. Double aspect room with fine views. Pub up the road, where Jane the proprietor would have taken us to, was closed so Jane kindly cooked an excellent dinner for us.

As other reviewers have said, it is a lovely farmhouse with very large rooms in a very quiet location. Jane was very friendly also and once you got used to how quiet the house and surroundings were it was very nice. Only things to consider is that the farm is at least 2 miles of single track roads from the... More

We called into Silcombe Farm without a reservation on a wet blustery night as we were walking the South West Coast Path. The welcome was warm, rooms spacious, immaculately clean and interesting. Lovely views of the surrounding farmland and coast, great hot showers. Beautifully cooked breakfast with some of the nicest sausages I have had, just right to set us... More
