Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Excellent’ hosts Tim and Anne Riley are the heart of this small hotel, in a village on the Exmoor coast. The Rileys have owned and run their hotel for more than 30 years; fans applaud the sense of tradition in the Edwardian house, its rooms filled with books, paintings, tufted armchairs, floral fabrics and period furniture. Arrive to tea and home-baked cake, then relax in spacious bedrooms with views of the sea, the village or the hills. Later, mingle with fellow guests over aperitifs in the lounge. At dinner, Anne Riley cooks traditional English dishes that feature local game and seasonal vegetables. Her four-course, daily-changing menu might include chilled melon, dry cider jelly; roast fillet of Exmoor venison, port wine, redcurrant. The chocolates that follow are home made. Walk off the meal along coastal footpaths or woodland bridleways the next day (ask the hosts for their favourite routes). Longing to feel the wind in your hair? The Rileys are classic car enthusiasts; hire their MGB Roadster convertible and take to the open road. (M and JP)
