Exmoor House: awards and accolades

Rosi with Green Tourism award

At Exmoor House we think it's important to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and in 2010 we were the very first Exmoor accommodation, and the first guest house in Somerset, to achieve Gold in the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). Not only that, but in 2008 we won a Green Tourism Best Performer award - which means that we were one of the top 12 businesses (out of 425) assessed by them in England that year. We have since left the scheme, but learnt a lot through our membership.


In 2015 Exmoor House was one of the first five businesses to become anExmoor National Park Partner Exmoor National Park Partner, which involved demonstrating how we are helping to look after Exmoor and encouraging people to enjoy its landscapes.

Frank with baking trophy

Frank won the village fete cup in 2010 - the Cynthia Stevens Memorial Challenge Trophy - for his local goat's cheese & bacon flan (believe us, this is a real honour, as we have some fantastic home bakers in Wheddon Cross and Cutcombe). The judges loved it. We think you will, too.

We have now left the VisitEngland / Quality in Tourism scheme (under which we were rated 4* Silver Award, with the Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome Awards). We still follow the 4 star and award guidelines, of course.


In February 2014 Exmoor House won the BrightPig Business of the Week award on twitter.

Autumn on Exmoor

The changing Exmoor seasons are always a delight. October and November are a time for colourful trees, red deer rutting - and Somerset carnivals.
