Guy the owner was extremely welcoming and friendly. The room was very pleasant and the bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast (I had poached eggs on toast) was 10/10. I will definitely be staying at Bracken House when I am next on business in the area.
Attentive hosts nothing too much trouble lovely room with rural views lovely home setting ,not too far from barnstable and other interesting places.
No local pub or restaurant shame Bracken House was not licensed
Lovely tranquil location with fabulous views. Friendly attentive host. Superb (very) full breakfast of local and home produce.
Not a thing.
A lovely warm welcome and most pleasant hosts.A great breakfast ! To explore Exmoor,no better location
A little attention to the driveway perhaps?
The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The setting is stunning with amazing views and gardens that you can sit in and relax.
Quiet relaxing, superb scenery, centrally placed for access to surrounding areas
We were a group of three girls and were treated so well-it could not have been a more welcoming stay. We didn't have a car so Guy offered to give us a lift into Barnstaple-very grateful! There are beautiful walks/views around the house.
This B&B is a little gem, Guy and Sue are the best of hosts, they do their outmost to make your stay a very pleasant experience. The house and its surroundings are beautiful and tranquil. Breakfast is beautifully cooked and served in a pretty room. Our room had a stunning view, it was clean and had a new renovated bathroom. The beds were comfortable. The icing of the cake was the kindest dog, Lottie,which we would gladly adopt! A great place to stay!
Nothing to dislike!
what a superb place to stay, a very welcome pot of tea on the lawn, after a day of work, lovely people, they could not do enough for me, i even took the Dog for a walk. Sue even played her Harp for me, what a sound! room was perfect, clean tidy, great shower. breakfast was just right.
a little difficult to find, sat nav went a bit crazy.
Travelling to Devon for a funeral, could have been a very gloomy affair but staying in this lovely Vicarage with beautiful views and the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, made this trip, although sad, a most surprising pleasure.
Idyllic location, beautiful furniture, attention to detail, friendly hosts.
Great hosts Comfy bed Good breakfast Interesting company Found an excellent pub for dinner but entailed a 6 mile drive to it
A pity local pub was closed as it meant driving out to find an eating venue No available heating in bedroom on chilly days.
For us, bed too small. No doubt ok for others.
Homely and very welcoming
Breakfast was excellent with homemade bread. Genial host, clean rooms, very relaxing. Well placed to explore everything North Devon has to offer.
Owners are so friendly
I spend much of my time working away from home. My stay albeit for only one night was excellent. The house, the room and the excellent hosts. Not to mention the fantastic breakfast and the idyllic surroundings all first rate. If all my away from home accommodation was as nice as this i would be a very happy man. Thank you so much for making me feel welcome.
Guy had to taxi us because the local taxi co didn't operate in the eves! Very hospitable and comfortable, thank you
A lovely place to stay. A warm human, canine and feline welcome, very beautiful surroundings and instantly felt at home. My second and certainly not my last visit.
Nothing at all.
Warmth of greeting
Having to leave so soon
Everything about this lovely place was perfect, from the friendly hosts who couldn't do enough for you to the beautiful breakfast. The room was superb with exquisite views and the thoughtful attention to detail was appreciated. It would be a picky person indeed to find any fault at Bracken House.
We were warmly welcomed by the proprietors and they were very helpful. Accommodation well looked after and clean. Very quiet with great views. Breakfast was of a high standard. We will be going back.
Approach road a bit bumpy
