"An excellent establisment set in glorious countryside where nothing is too much trouble."
A welcoming cup of tea was followed by an exquisite dinner and an excellent night's rest in comfortable surroundings. Breakfast was sumptuous with all ingredients carefully sourced. John and Jane could not have been more helpful, and the standard of cuisine continued in similar fashion for all our four nights. The wine list is carefully chosen to represent good value as well as diversity, with some wines being available by the glass. The location is stunning. Read less

"Heaven in Somerset"
Booked for a 4 night break, had never stayed here before and we were totally delighted with our choice. The view from our room (number 7) was amazing, right across to Dunkery Beacon. The room facilities were perfect. Tea and coffee plus home made biscuits. Delightful toiletries in the huge bathroom and a super comfy bed with quality bedlinen. Breakfast every day was delicious with locally sourced ingredients and lots of choice including a fishy special each day. Read less
Likes:
Everything! The suite, the bed, the shower, the view, the friendly hosts, the fact that green tea bags were put into our room when Jane realised I drank green tea at breakfast, the Kings Ginger!
Dislikes:
Not a single thing!
Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
It was great to meet you both and thank you for posting such a glowing review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much and you loved the 4-poster room you stayed in. I'm also delighted you've discovered the heady delights of The King's Ginger Liqueur and that there are more converts joining the ranks!! John and I look forward to welcoming you back for another break here hopefully in the not too distant future.

Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
Hi Samantha, Thank you for your review and observation. As with a lot of current chefs, I like to break away from traditions and add an alternative dimension to the food which helps to bring a new twist to an old dish. I am sure Escoffier will have done several somersaults as a result of how his food is now interpreted!

"Relaxed luxury with superb food, in a beautiful rural location."
From a welcoming tea tray in the lounge with fresh cream scones, to a farewell handshake, our stay exceeded expectations. The room was spacious and nicely decorated, the bed was supremely comfortable and the views from the bay window, fascinating. The breakfast selection is generous and the food in the Coleridge restaurant was of a very high standard, with menus which offer good variety. Our three night stay felt like the relaxing and luxurious break we'd hoped for. Read less
Likes:
Hospitality is relaxed, befitting a country break, and service is precise without being stuffy. We cannot speak highly enough of the cooking here, ano the winelist is interesting and well-priced.
Dislikes:
None
Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
It was a pleasure to meet you both and we're delighted that your experience here not only met but exceeded expectations. John and I try to provide a welcoming relaxing atmosphere but with attentive personal service and we are glad that you thought we have the balance right. We hope you will come and visit us again.

The location was very good for what we wanted to do around Exmoor, The view from are room was wonderful
Dislikes:
yes, having to leave after only two days. Not having a bar we could sit at with other guests after dinner.
Such a shame, or if there was we did not see it!!!
Response from Dunkery Beacon Country House:
Thank you very much for your feedback - John and I are delighted you enjoyed your stay so much and have recommended to friends. We don't have a separate bar area as such (we just don't have the space), but most guests usually move from the restaurant to the guest lounge with drinks, as they can relax on the sofas and chat with each other in front of the fire. We have 2 rooms which are dog-friendly - the ground floor suite and first floor four poster suite with separate lounge.
