Good Hotel Guide Review
‘A close approximation to perfection.’ Long-time fans praise John and Jane Bradley’s ‘peaceful, hugely enjoyable’ Edwardian hunting lodge, with ‘beautiful views’ towards the summit of Dunkery Beacon. ‘There have been small but significant changes since our last visit: improvements to the car park, upgraded bedroom heating systems, new raised beds for growing vegetables in the garden.’ Walkers particularly appreciate the daily supply of apples in the lounge. ‘Clean, comfortable’ bedrooms have their own character; all have fresh milk, locally ground coffee, chilled spring water. John Bradley is a keen forager; wild foods complement his ‘creative cooking’. A characteristic dish: pan-fried Holnicote venison, fondant potato, sautéed kale, parsnip purée, blackberries. Jane Bradley’s ‘well-chosen, comprehensive wine list’ is fine accompaniment. Nights, take advantage of Exmoor’s Dark Sky designation (a telescope is set up to maximise stargazing opportunities); in daytime, there’s ‘wonderful walking, with maps and guides provided, straight from the hotel’.
