About the hotel

The Blue Ball Inn, formerly known as the Exmoor Sandpiper Inn, is a beautiful, privately owned, traditional country pub with low ceilings, blackened beams, stone fireplaces and an atmosphere of unspoilt old world charm. The Inn has a fine and growing reputation for providing real ale, fine wines and excellent food which is served all day in the summer and lunchtimes and evenings in the winter. Set in an imposing position on a hilltop, a few hundred yards from the sea in Countisbury, the inn has been a landmark on the main route from Lynmouth to Porlock for as long as anyone can remember.

We are close to the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth and the Doone Valley. Our 16 en-suite bedrooms offer the tranquillity that you would naturally expect from an unspoilt grade II listed, 13th Century Inn on Exmoor.

excellent dog friendly dining inn

Still very much a pub with pub carpets, locals in the bar and bedrooms which whilst pleasant enough had no hint of the designer about them - extremely comfortable beds.

Service laid back and friendly but also quietly efficient. Very good food with two menus one of which was pub type food and the other restaurant type food. Lots of remarkably well behaved dogs.
