Great host, very informative of the local area and history of it all. Definitely worth visiting this stunning garden by the River Lyne. Had a traditional devonshire cream tea with some cake (homemade on the premises). Must Visit and a big recommend!

Came down with my boyfriend for trek to Brendon via Watersmeet and turned back and rewarded ourselves with a cream tea at The Captains table. A young boy to our surprise served us, very funny and informative. Then soon after came back the next day for some homemade lemon cake which was divine.

After having a very stale coffee cake and dirty pot of tea, complete with chips and stains slammed down in front of us, an incredibly abrupt owner demanded immediate payment in cash before we had chance to even exhale. He then subjected us to a two minute rant on how his meagre profit margins were completely eaten up by the cash hungry debit card companies, before flouncing off in a cloud of importance. I'd like to add we paid over £12 for a pot of tea, scone and a slice of stale evil... Unfortunately we only noticed after our cash was ripped out of our hands that the cake was stale and inedible and any covid safe payment options had gone out the window... Avoid, not a pleasant experience.

(Following the COVID restrictions we self-catered and tended all to ourselves in a separate building away from the owners). Hearing about the B and B before we decided to spend 2 nights down with our dog here in this beautiful scenic part of Exmoor and it surely didn't disappoint!

Brought a few friends down to this stunning location in North Devon and we stumbled across this Victorian building situation next to the River Lyn. We initially wanted to stay for 1 night here and then on decided to stay for another 3 nights as we were captivated with variety of activities in the local area.
