Set in the splendour of the Barle Valley, Simonsbath House stood alone for over 150 years before the small hamlet of Simonsbath developed in the 19th Century. This 350 year old house retains many of the wonderful features of yesteryear yet still provides a comfortable and cozy place to stay.
With all rooms having picture postcard views of the Barle Valley you can sit and relax whilst planning your next walk along the banks of this picturesque river. Alternatively take a drive to some of the well known parts of Exmoor and its surrounding coast. Just 7 miles will take you to the stunning beauty of Watersmeet on the East Lyn river or follow the road further into Lynmouth with the cliff side railway connecting the town to Lynton.
From here you can walk easily to the Valley of the Rocks or you can go further to Woody Bay, Heddons Mouth, and the infamous Hunters Inn. Alternatively the coastal resorts of Minehead, Ilfracombe, and Croyde Bay are all within a short drive. Most people come to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Exmoor exploring the beautiful countryside either on foot or by car.
Simonsbath House offers the ideal base and we are pleased to suggest suitable walks and areas of interest to visit. We are proud to offer ten individually decorated bedrooms all with en-suite bath and shower facilities with stunning views of the valley. The rooms all have coloured televisions telephone hairdryer and hospitality tray containing coffee and tea with biscuits and mineral water.
