information about us

A place where you can enjoy a traditional Devon welcome and where cream teas and dinners are served in cosy, cottage style surroundings.

Every assistance is given to enable you to get the best from your stay and to discover those corners of Exmoor and the West Country that appeal to you. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the Bark House (an AA 4 Star B&B), with tea in the comfortable lounge complete with open fire, where you can meet other guests, or mull over your day with drinks before dinner in the restaurant.

Breakfast and dinners are cooked to order with dishes using local produce from Bampton’s butcher, the local farm shop and the traveling fishmonger.

Within easy reach of the Bark House is Anstey Moor and Winsford Hill, Dulverton and Bampton, the National Trust properties of Piles Mill and Knightshayes Court, along with some great places for horse riding, fishing, water sports, and walking.

The Exe Valley is an excellent base to visit sites of historic interest locally, such as Raddington Church, Sweetworthy, Tarr Steps, or further afield to Exeter, Dartmoor and Hartland. This is an ideal area for cycling and we are very "cyclist friendly".

The Bark House is located in the Exe Valley, just south of Dulverton on the A396 and about 20 minutes from jct 27 on the M5. There is ample parking and we will give every assistance with baggage. Guests are welcome to bring their dog and there is an area for exercise. We are very dog friendly!

We serve Cream Teas, Dinner and Sunday Lunch (reservation essential) and are open to non-residents.
