This is a very late review but better late than never. We had the pleasure of staying at the The Bark House B&B last August and we had an amazing stay. You won't find better hosts than Gina, Rick & Barbara who make a great team. It was so nice to be welcomed with tea and homemade cake on arrival...

On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from the owners Gina and Rick and presented with delicious homemade cake and a coffee in the bright and comfortable guest living room. Our room was decorated beautifully maintaining that 'escape to the country' feel with modern pastel furnishings. We also had a gorgeous view of the Bark House orchard which...

We were booked to visit the Bark House for Easter weekend but they cancelled on us THE DAY BEFORE our reservation, leaving us with no place to stay at a time where all BnBs are fully booked. Despite previously confirming our reservation, they told us that they had double booked our room. I understand that mistakes happen, but it's a...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my hubby. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Shower was a delight! Owners were extremely helpful with ideas of places to go and local pubs to eat (even offering to run us there). I had a wonderful massage courtesy of Kiki which was amazing. Would definitely go back and i...

The hotel is at the side of a main road a few miles outside Tiverton and also doubles as a tea room during the day. There is a small car park over the road. The hotel has the benefit of a guest lounge so no need to be stuck in your room in the evening. Our room was very pretty...

A great place to unwind and relax next to the river, beautiful views, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was great (dinner, breakfast or the cream teas!!), the orchard was a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. Enjoyed our staff and will definitely be returning soon.

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful part of Devon, and the owners have worked really hard to make a success of it - and it is a success! We had a very nice stay, and will definitely go back, if we have a break in that part of the world again.

My friend and I were looking for a place to have a cup of tea and cake before booking in to our hotel in Bampton. We were driving along when we spotted a sig. for The Bark House and pulled off the road. It looked as though it was shut (it was a Monday) but a man asked if he...

We had a two night stay at the Lovely Bark House. It's a beautiful country cottage with a warm and cozy feel to it throughout. Very clean and tidy. The location is beautiful. The building overlooks a beautiful orchard, field and river that attracts beautiful birds. The Breakfast and dinner can be enjoyed from a nice dining room with a...
