Superb stay as always and Huw and Sam keep their standards very high. A real home from home break. The room was warm, comfortable and very very clean as were all the public areas. Nothing is too much trouble for Huw and Sam.

What a little gem of a hotel, situated on the Exmoor National Park. Stayed for three nights, and enjoyed the hospitality of the owners Sam and Huw, who looked after us admirably throughout our stay. Highly recommended.
