Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
Thank you for your review. Jane and I are glad you all enjoyed your stay. The carpark is now finished, despite being a little wet on the day and now looks very smart. We look forward to seeing you again.

"An all round gem of a hotel & restaurant, run by the loveliest couple you're likely to meet!"
My wife and I have stayed at Dunkery Beacon Country House Hotel three times this year, each time for a two-night weekend. From our first stay in February (for Valentine's) it immediately became a favourite and our go-to place in Exmoor. The location is beautiful, Jane and John are the friendliest front-of-house we've ever experienced, the rooms are spotless and beautiful, and John's food is exceptional (and perfectly complemented by Jane's fantastic choice of wines!). Read less
Likes:
The stand-out features are the location (right in the middle of Exmoor), the grand and beautifully presented rooms, and the really very impressive food (which is worth the trip in itself!).
Dislikes:
In our three visits we've had absolutely nothing to complain about; it's always a wonderful experience and so far Jane & John have a perfect record with us!
Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
We really appreciate you taking the time to post such a detailed (and hugely complimentary) review. We can't express enough how delighted we are that you have enjoyed all aspects of your three stays with us and look forward to welcoming you back for more of the same next year!

Our wonderful Exmoor Country House offers luxury accommodation in a boutique hotel style. Wake up to a hearty breakfast and truly breath-taking views that stretch across the hills and moors.
We are situated down a quiet country lane near to Dunster and Porlock in stunning, unspoilt countryside.

After a day full of interest and activity, why not relax once again in the dining room and enjoy a gourmet three course evening meal (Wed - Sat). Standing in lovely gardens, Dunkery Beacon Country House is a former Edwardian hunting lodge and has seven luxuriously appointed and individually decorated en-suite rooms, plus one with private facilities. One of the bedrooms we have is located on the ground floor, so ideal for people with limited mobility, plus we also designate 2 bedrooms as dog-friendly. Children 10 years of age and over are welcome.

Our aim is to create an atmosphere that is welcoming, relaxing and refreshing and with our en suite bedrooms we provide a superior level of comfort with fantastic views across the moor.

Situated near some of the prettiest villages and dramatic coastline in Britain and with stunning moorland literally on the doorstep, our country home provides the perfect location for an Exmoor experience or to visit Somerset, Devon and beyond.

Dunkery Beacon Country House. A truly unique and special place to stay on Exmoor.
Environmental Statement
We recognise our obligation to operate in an environmentally responsible way and so we undertake all practical measures to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. Some of the measures that we take include:- Recycling of paper, glass, plastic containers/bottles, cardboard, food cans. Wherever possible, we send packaging back to our suppliers for re-use (e.g. egg trays/vegetable trays). We compost most food waste (wastage kept to a minimum by asking residents to pre-order evening meals). We try to source our ingredients as locally as possible and run seasonal menus, which reduces our carbon footprint. We also grow some of our own produce. Coffee grinds are emptied over the garden beds and provide a good source of nitrogen to the soil. Water butts are used to collect rainwater for use on the garden. Kitchen cleaners are purchased in bulk for dispensing in re-usable spray bottles. Most light bulbs have been replaced with low energy bulbs. Solar lights are used in the garden.
