Unique and quirky property

This was a real find for a place to stay.

The old worlde Cham of a 16th century farm house in a fantastic setting. The hosts are friendly and helpful with a good knowledge of the local area. The room was quirky with thick walls and squeaky floorboards . A selection of beverages in the room. And good views of Exmoor. only 2.5 miles from the coast. We were welcomed to the property by Cathy and a large pot of coffee and cake. The breakfast was of a good standard with plenty of choice. After breakfast we were greeted by numerous chickens and 3 Macaws in the garden. The room was very quiet and relaxing.

Wobbly floors

How lovely to stay in such a wonderful house and setting.

The wobbly floor was a feature, just as well not to be drunk when going to the bedroom. Very roomy shower room. Quiet with no street lights.

The most special place we have ever stayed at

Of all the excellent B & Bs that we stayed in during a fortnight's tour of the West Country, this was the one that left us feeling that without question we will come back to again one day for a longer stay.

It really is the most extraordinary place - macaws sitting elegantly on their tree perches in the garden (one hanging jauntily from its beak, another bidding you "Good morning"), beautiful peaceful grounds with a river running through them and surrounded by wooded hills, loved and well-cared for animals, fascinating owls and birds of prey (we saw an owl demonstration in the great barn, presented by a superb falconer whose love of the birds was evident). The complex of ancient buildings, including the 15th century house where you stay, is a privilege to see in itself - thatched barns and a chapel, stables to visit with horses in residence - you can just wander quietly about and feel you never want to leave. B & B guests pay a reduced rate to go into the Owl and Hawk centre, and it's certainly money well spent. A lovely lunch afterwards in the tea garden, with the macaws still keeping a beady eye on us. We will never forget this amazing place.

We had a great time.

We spent six nights at the Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre and had an easy going and really relaxed visit.

Staff were friendly and accommodating. The area is lovely, a National Trust estate really near the sea. Thatched cottages, cream teas and quiet evenings just sitting in the garden. We did a lot of walking along the coastal path and were never short of good pubs and places to eat. The accommodation is in a lovely National Trust farmhouse, with a fantastic ancient front door. It sits in a cluster of buildings including a medieval chapel of ease and thatched barn. We went round the Owl and Hawk centre, really enjoyed the flying display and booked an hour session where you can fly some of the birds yourself. We got to fly 4 owls which was amazing, it was fantastic to be so close to them and the falconer who was with us was really interesting. We had a great time.
