If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Very pleasant and friendly owners (Sally & Steve), room spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed. Well appointed en suite with toiletries. Great location and very quiet. Excellent choice at breakfast including a good choice of fresh fruit which often lets places down, this did not disappoint, quality fruit juice, not cheap...

Our room was lovely and warm , spotlessly...

As we liked it so much last time we decided to have a return visit, and it's even better than ever, Sally & Steve have redecorated some of the rooms, extended the menu (the food was lovely) and of course the nice touches like the hot water and fresh milk in the rooms to make yourself a drink. Wonderful.

Stayed at this country house for 2 nights and could have easily stayed a week! Clean comfortable room, fresh, home cooked breakfast of choice and top quality evening meal to boot! Owners are perfect hosts, nothing too much for them (not that we needed anything more than was provided). Very relaxing atmosphere leaving all guests feeling like it's a home...

Stayed for one night and can confirm it's the best for cleanliness, facilities, service, breakfast and location . Have not got a single bad word to say about the place or owners. Bravo. Walking distance to the picturesque village and short drive away from historic Dunster. Good selection of places to eat although dinner is also offered at the house,...

The owners, Sally and Steve are running a fabulous hotel to perfection. The little touches they have added make all the difference, no uht milk or sachets here. Everything is to a very high standard. The honesty bar and lounge are like home from home and the breakfast is lovely. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night on our way to walk some of the South Coast Way. Perfect place - we were welcomed personally and as it was the off season had the lounge to ourselves. Great lounge and lovely large warm bedrooms with good water pressure in the shower. We enjoyed the honesty bar, the breakfast was fantastic and...

Just spent the weekend at Exmoor House, which can only be described as pure bliss, I have been very fortunate in my many years of traveling to stay at some amazing 5* hotels.

Just spent 3 relaxing days at Exmoor Country House. The house is very imposing from the outside and is very tastefully decorated and furnished. We had Room 2 which was spacious and had a magnificent view. I know that Sally and Steve run the House themselves and they certainly run it to a very high standard . Breakfast menu is...

My partner and I stayed here for one night as part of a mini trip around the South of England. We initially found out about the Exmoor Country House from the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor.
