Why We Love It

  • The hotel is in a wooded valley in an area that has red deer, wild ponies and even an extinct volcano
  • William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge were inspired by the landscape surrounding the hotel, and both lived nearby
  • Dunster Castle and Exmoor National Park are both less than 30 minutes' drive away
  • The Grade I-listed ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, and Tiverton Castle, a 17th-century country house, are less than an hour away by car

Overall very pleasant stay. Really enjoyed the breakfasts. We were in room 15, would have prefered to be bit further from reception etc but not too much prob. Also slightly bigger bedroom would have been preferable, with bath, but we understand the space is the space! Thank you.

Setting was amazing. Room was clean and comfortable. The service was the best feature of the hotel. Staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Food in the morning was great and we had a meal in the restaurant which was excellent.

I guess the offers via travelzoo may not necessarily get you the best room - our was on a small side which would have been even ok, but the shower was tiny.
