We had a two night stay at the Lovely Bark House. It's a beautiful country cottage with a warm and cozy feel to it throughout. Very clean and tidy. The location is beautiful. The building overlooks a beautiful orchard, field and river that attracts beautiful birds. The Breakfast and dinner can be enjoyed from a nice dining room with a...

We were welcomed to the hotel by by Gina and shown to our room which was so pretty and welcoming from the bathroom to the bed was first rate.

Our girls treated us to a weekend break and we chose to stay here after checking out reviews. So glad we did! Rick, Gina and Barbara made us feel so welcome and looked after. Their enthusiasm for their new(ish) venture is really infectious. Even though the building needs a little attention, our room was lovely and comfortable, clean and had...

We stayed for two days and were very well looked after indeed! Excellent breakfast and dinner on both days. Rick is an excellent cook and Gina a great host. Would become a great boutique spa hotel as my wife and I both had superb massages. Definitely visit again in a beautiful location on the edge of Exmoor.

Most places out of season let their service slack but not here. Lovely welcome. The room was a little small but very comfortable and impeccably clean with a comfortable bed. Nice bathroom with a shower with great pressure - shower does seem to only run hot; not a problem this time of year but could be in the summer. The...

We decided to stay at the Bark House after buying a voucher from Buy a Gift. Checking on the reviews on TripAdvisor indicated that it should be a good place to stay. We were not disappointed! The friendliness of the owners was outstanding, what a joy to meet such lovely people. Gina, Rick and Barbara have only been the owners...

I don't normally write reviews, but this place was so good I've had to break my habits! Our cosy, well decorated room was characterful and clean. The food was well cooked (great crispy bacon!) and some of it locally sourced. We also had aromatherapy massages which were absolutely brilliant. The river is just across the way and places to walk,...
