Sue welcomed my wife and me as if we were close friends.
We felt like at home and slept very well and this stay will remain as our highlight in our memory.
The room was lovely and we had an excellent breakfast in combination with a very nice and accommodating host.
Nothing was missing. It was a marvelous stay in Bracken House. We will come back to Bracken House on our next England tour. Read less

Bracken House, formerly known as The Old Rectory, is situated on the edge of the popular North Devon village of Bratton Fleming. It is a high quality bed and breakfast with a 5* rating from the AA. It is within easy driving distance of the spectacular coast with Putsborough, our favourite beach, being about 40 minutes away. Exmoor (about 3 miles away) and many other local attractions, including National Trust properties (Arlington Court), gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Castle Hill and Marwood are also within easy reach. There are lovely views from the house and gardens over the lovely unspoilt North Devon countryside and also down to Hartland Point in the distance.

We have four ensuite bedrooms, three doubles on the first floor floor and one on the ground floor. The main premium room is Wodehouse which has views to the front and side of the house and also has a four poster bed with en-suite bathroom and a separate shower, another has views to Hartland Point in the distance (Wooster) and the other (Jeeves) looks over the garden and surrounding countryside. Jeeves can be made up as a twin, if preferred, and can have a third bed if need. Anatole is a double bedroom on the ground floor and would be suitable for guests who have difficulty in climbing stairs and the doors have been widened to accommodate wheelchairs users and has a bath with shower over.

The historic towns of Barnstaple and South Molton are 8 and 12 miles respectively to the south and Exmoor National Park is 3 miles to the east. The stunning coast line of North Devon with its cliff paths and sandy beaches are a short drive away. Nearby villages include Goodleigh, Brayford, Stoke Rivers, Shirwell, East and West Buckland as well as the towns of Barnstaple, Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and South Molton.

We have named the rooms after characters in P G Wodehouse's novels as his uncle was Rector here from 1875 to 1913 and it is known that PG stayed in this house many times
