The heart of Devon – a romantic place to stay
Devon's heartland is the ideal area for a cosy winter break complete with wood burning stoves, windswept moorland, rural idylls and delicious dishes to warm the soul.
If you’re looking for a romantic weekend away then why not stay with us?
There are few locations in Britain where you can get a mixture of wild moorland with lush, deep, wooded valleys, pretty cottages, rivers and acres of farm and woodland.
Bampton itself is a very pretty, traditional town with a thriving main street, which dates back to 700AD at least. The town’s centre has been declared a conservation area and has many listed buildings, some as early as the 17th century.
The townsfolk have greenfingers and have won the Britain in Bloom national award numerous times and even scooped a world win in 1999.
If you stay with us you can cuddle up in front of our log burning stove in the bar, dine by candlelight, star gaze, our area has amazing dark skies, and take strolls hand in hand to blow away the cobwebs. It’s all here!
The stunning Exmoor National Park is just six miles from the town and the beautiful beaches of North and South Devon are only a 40-minute drive away.
Exmoor is where English author Richard Doddridge Blackmore’s novel ‘Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor’ was first published in 1869.
But it’s not just legacy, literature and landscape, there’s plenty of foodie heaven here too as we offer seasonal dishes, made with love, using ingredients sourced at various wild and windswept locations nearby.
All of our rooms, which are non-smoking, are located on the top floor of this fabulous old building. With spacious, comfortable rooms you’ll find all the quirky character you’d expect from a town house. They’re perfect for a country break – renovated and decorated by our local craftsman – all three rooms include an en-suite, WiFi, TV, tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary toiletry products for a relaxing stay.
For breakfast, we offer a full English made with fresh, local produce or there is always a selection of cereals and lighter options available. Evening meals can also be arranged for staying guests.
