Guy and Sue are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and you instantly feel at home. The Wodehouse suite is pure luxury and the breakfasts are delicious. Our stay was extra special given we also got married at Bracken House. My sister commented it was one of the most romantic weddings she had ever been to, we would have to...

This delightful B&B is situated in beautiful Devon countryside. It has very comfortable and attractive rooms with lovely views. Welcoming and friendly hosts who are on hand at all times. I liked the family style arrangement for (very substantial) breakfast which helped to foster a homely atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend Bracken House to any...

Dear Ros Thank you for your kind review and comments. The breakfast arrangement works extremely well and it is often a complete surprise when complete strangers realise that they have something in common with another gust that they would never have known had they been on separate tables!. It is indeed a very small world and we look forward to...

Enjoyed 5 nights in this delightful house set in a beautiful part of North Devon. Nothing was too much trouble for our friendly hosts, Sue and Guy (not forgetting the beautiful Lottie!). Our room was spacious, extremely comfortable and always spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the beautiful dining room was always delicious with a wide choice and attention to detail. In...

Guy and Sue made you feel instantly welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble and were always at hand if you needed something. The food is of a high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our home-cooked breakfasts - especially the crêpes. Lottie the Labrador is a star too! We highly recommend Bracken House.

Excellent idyllic & tranquil B&B set in rural Devon. Lovely rooms, hearty breakfast, splendid views. Whats not to like? Spent the evening star gazing and watching meteors in the surrounding gardens unaffected by light pollution of any kind. A really great find - I'll be back!

What a lovely place to stay run by a charming family. A beautiful country house in a charming setting. Good rooms with comfortable beds. The communal breakfast was very good and it was nice to meet the other guests. If you are lucky the lady of the house might be practising the harp which made the stay eeven more special.

Being first time travelers to Devon, we were not sure how the journey would turn out. Fortunately, experiencing this charming place opened up a whole new horizon for my family and I. The English countryside has so much touristic value to offer - one may think it is expensive, hard to get to, etc. Luckily for us, we booked the...

Bracken House is a sublime property set in acres of beautiful and tranquil grounds in the heart of Devon. My partner and I chose this property initially based upon all of the excellent reviews it had received here on trip advisor.

We were greeted at the door by Guy and Sue, who helped us with our bags up to our lovely room, which had recently been refurbished. We were given a supply of fresh milk (no jiggers here!) to add to the already well stocked beverage tray. The bathroom was immaculate with massive bath sheets which nearly went around me twice!!!...
