We visited as a family of 6 adults plus dog. We didn't book and arrived about 20 mins before the end of lunch service after a visit to Porlock. We received a warm welcome and were told that the dog was welcome too - both...More

Beautiful place with beautiful views. Food all freshly made and a great choice on the menu. Worth the slightly inflated prices.

The location and setting of this fairly remote restaurant is idyllic, in particular the approach through the moors. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are friendly. Portions are very generous and well presented and the price levels are reasonable. Music nights are available...More

Relax and unwind while you enjoy the stunning views from our peaceful bedrooms, and outside dining area. The seasonal views of the Valley and Moors are breathtaking (the coastal mist adds real magic to the landscape). Lush green in the spring and summer and full of character and action in autumn and winter. Partridge, pheasant and deer are our companions in the milder months. Staying at The Culbone is a great way to experience life on Exmoor.
