We spent a weekend at The Bark House with friends in January. We were given a lovely warm welcome by Gina, Rick & Barbara and an amazing dinner of locally sourced products. They have a huge wine selection which we enjoyed sampling and the most tasty local cheese board! The homemade cake selection is a must do treat. Breakfast was...

We have just stayed for the weekend at the Barkhouse. The welcome is warm and heart felt which laid the foundation for the weekend. The bedroom is comfortable, the food plentiful and well cooked. We will be back

This is a loved location for my husband and I and we have been many times before. This time was different as the property has changed hands. It is family run and was brilliant, Barbara and Gina made us feel so welcome. (Rick was away). you can tell they really enjoy what they do. We loved what they had done...

Coffee and cake, fresh yummy and friendly host. Beautiful building and full of character. They even do a full English breakfast and over night stays. Lemon drizzle cake is a must with lemon curd yum yum yum.

Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Gina and Rick, the breakfasts were excellent and we were welcomed on arrival with tea in the lounge. At this time of year the beautiful old...

Lovely room, fantastic breakfast and evening meal, a wonderful welcome and chat with the owners throughout our stay. Would certainly stay there again if in the area. Only negative, Room 4 curtains were very light material and so room was light by 6 am.

Just back from a 2 night stay at the Bark house. We had a lovely room and a great bathroom. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have had in any hotel. Rick, Gina and Gina's mum were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble. They even provided us with food in our room on a wet Sunday...

Me and my husband stayed at the bark house this Thursday and Friday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rick and Gina are very welcoming and informative, our room was very nice and breakfast was very good. There is a pub, the Red Lion, in walking distance, about a 20 minute walk, quite a steep incline so you need to be...

We were given a lovely welcome from the owners when we arrived. Even offered a cup of tea! Bark house is a lovely building just slightly in the wrong place being on quite a busy road. Car park is opposite. We stayed in a smallish room. Big enough though for a short two night stay. Very clean and well maintained....
