Relaxing accommodation in the heart of Exmoor

At Exmoor House we aim to give you the homeliness of a bed and breakfast with the comfort of a small country hotel. The guest accommodation is in three twin/double bedrooms (can be either twins or doubles), a double bedroom and a family room. All five rooms are en suite, either with bath or shower.

The house, in Exmoor's highest village, is full of quirky character and has an unusual history - it was built in Edwardian times for a local tailor.The dining room, where you can enjoy views of Dunkery Beacon with your breakfast and dinner, was orginally the tailor’s shop. The guests’ sitting room was built as the village reading room (a kind of mini-library); it's also been the village club room, the tailors’ cutting room and, at one point, a 'Santa's grotto' for village children to choose their Christmas presents. The rooms still have their original wooden panelling, which helps to give them a homely feel. You'll find more about Exmoor House in days gone by, and our village too, on our history page.

In winter there's a cosy log fire in the sitting room - perfect for relaxing after a day on the moors with, perhaps, a warming glass of whisky from our honesty bar. You won’t find any blaring TVs here; what you will find is an interesting selection of books and magazines - many of them about Exmoor - and a collection of board games. There are also plenty of maps and guide books so that you can plan the following day’s expedition.

In the summer, why not take your drinks out onto the terrace garden and soak up the sun or, later on, check out our amazing night sky. The Exmoor dark skies are among the best in the UK and Exmoor National Park is a Dark Sky Reserve. With very little light pollution here to contend with, this is the place to be for astronomers - or anybody just interested in star gazing - and Exmoor House is a perfect place to stay.

Exmoor House has a welcoming, peaceful atmosphere - one of the things that attracted us in the first place and something that our guests frequently comment on. After a day exploring, walking or cycling on Exmoor, what could be better than relaxing with some tea and home-made cake in front of the fire, or enjoying an aperitif out on the terrace before dinner?

There's not much mobile phone reception up here on Exmoor, and many people who normally lead busy lives find this quite restful, but we do have WiFi in case you need to keep in touch while you're away.

There is ample parking at Exmoor House for cars and motorcycles and lockable undercover storage for bicycles.

Walkers, cyclists and bikers will be pleased to know that we have a drying room for wet outdoor gear, trays for muddy boots and facilities outside to wash your bike.

Exmoor House is non-smoking throughout and we don't accommodate pet dogs, cats etc (we can give you details of a nearby kennels which comes highly recommended).
