We had three lovely days at Heron House visiting family who live near by. Fiona's breakfasts are superb. I particularly love the fruit compote. What a welcome complete with Christmas Cake. Pantomime in Barnstaple great fun. Hair raising drive from Watchet via Porlock and Lynmouth. We will return.

Hello ggcooper It was lovely to have you both stay here at Heron House again, so pleased you enjoyed our local Panto even if the drive was hellish! Just a small bit of Christmas cake to finish up..... Bridge ladies on Thursday will probably do the job. See you again soon I hope. Happy New Year. Best wishes Fiona

Lovely b&b - home from home only better. Fiona was as welcoming as ever. Snug room with very comfy bed, loads of hot water and plenty of toiletries. Some super touches like the mincepies with our tea tray on arrival. A real fire in the lounge and Christmas cake in the dining room if we wanted.

Heron House is located in Bampton, a village to the southeast of Exmoor and a good base from which to explore that part of the moor. We were there for a short break to do some walking, so found the hearty breakfasts a most suitable way to start the day. These comprised well selected local produce where possible, including bread...

Hello BristolElephants! Thank you very much for giving Heron House 5 stars with your review, I think you timed your walking break perfectly, good weather, not too cold, children all safely in school and lots of Exmoor ponies to be seen.

Our hostess Fiona made us feel very welcome and our stay there was excellent. A cosy sitting room to relax in, our bedroom was perfect and the bathroom had a large bath to wallow in. All this topped up by a delicious breakfast, combining healthy eating with a cooked English.

Stayed two nights in this lovely B & B. A beautiful house with a lovely calm feel. Everything was fresh and clean and Fiona was very welcoming. Nice touches such as torches next to the bed, a small tin of biscuits, fresh milk and proper coffee in the rooms. Breakfast was superb - a huge selection of delicious homemade jams,...

Hello I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Heron House and found your few days in the West Country to be really relaxing.

When we arrived at Bampton we were a little disappointed with the exterior of the B&B. It could do with a face-lift! We could not check in the room till 5 p.m, which is rather late in the day. But we were then greeted by the lovely lady owner Fiona, who could not have been more friendly. The room was...

So glad you liked our Breakfasts and comfy bed. There is only one Sunday in the month when the Swan does not serve food, and this is Quiz night, huge fun and well worth taking part. There are other restaurants and pubs in the area, notably in Dulverton and Waterrow, all serving excellent food, so no one will go hungry!...

Having frequented several Premier Inns this year, it was a very pleasant change to stay in a B&B with character. The house is lovely and our room was very comfortable. I particularly liked the inclusion of a cafetiere, fresh milk and a tin of biscuits! We had the room with the bathroom across the corridor, which was no problem, and...

We stayed here for 5 nights in August 2016. My husband and I shared one room and our 20 year old son enjoyed his own.
