We have just stayed at Bark House for a couple of nights. We had an excellent relaxing stay. The owners were really welcoming & the rooms were clean & tidy. The breakfast was very good & the service was excellent. We would recommend this to anyone & will definitely visit again.

We received a 2 night break as a present and chose to go to The Bark House in Devon. Mel and Martin were friendly and welcoming and the B&B itself is in a gorgeous setting, great for walking and exploring! The Bark House was clean and tidy, beautiful rooms, smoothly run and the food was fantastic! We would recommend anyone...

The title doesn't do justice for The Bark House; Martin and Mel made every effort to make our stay comfortable, relaxing and a thoroughly enjoyable break away. In addition to being situated in the beautiful countryside that it is (fantastic for walks, 15 miles were walked with ease), our stay was made even better with a fantastic meal at The...

The welcome with tea, coffee and cake at the fireside was a lovely touch. The evening meal which can be ordered earlier, was of great quality. The only negative was our room was not always warm. We...

We recently spent a very pleasant couple of days at The Bark House with one of the deciding factors being that it was dog friendly. Found it to be very comfortable and spacious (room 6) and Martin and Mel were good hosts.

I stayed at the Bark House for the new year period with my son and his girlfriend. Mel and Martin could not have been more welcoming including a warm welcome to our ancient Irish terrier Hattie of whom they made a great fuss. My back was stiff after a lot of driving and they bought a hotvwater bottle specially to...

Had a lovely stay here. Evening meal was excellent. Good breakfasts with local produce. We had a cream tea in the garden, which felt very decadent (proper clotted cream & homemade scones & jam - yum!) Room was comfortable, hosts were great. Thanks!
