We stopped at this b&b in August after visiting relatives. The area is very peaceful but convenient for Exmoor and Exeter. Carole was very welcoming and friendly and our breakfasts were extremely good. We had a child with us so the room was a little cramped, probably better suited to couples but none the less well equipped.

We stayed for one night in the converted barn. Carol, the Landlady, was very welcoming and the barn was perfect. Our dog 'Farley', enjoyed his stay too. He had a lovely time playing with Carol's dog 'Talula'. As for the breakfast, it was amazing and Carol had gone to a lot of trouble to supply a very satisfying meal. Thank... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights with our 9 month old in the annexe just off the cottage. We had such a lovely time and the barn was lovely and very comfortable. Carol is very friendly and makes a lovely breakfast! Will definitely recommend it
