Only stayed for the one night but everything was found to be spot on. Read more

Very well equipped apartment. Excellent location. Very clean. Definitely return again. Read more
Thank you glad you were comfortable. This apartment is especially popular with guests staying with their dogs
We came to stay so we could visit the steam railway next door. Ian and Chris are very welcoming and friendly. Nice roomy bedroom with everything we needed. Lovely breakfast choice and evening meals very tasty. Read more
Nice couple of days with a nice coue of guests. Evening meal was a bit of a challenge as guests were vegetarian but we obviously managed ok - not much in the way of choice i'm afraid beyond a couple of days.
A one night break to enable an early morning start working at the adjacent Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. Read more
As it says on our website just a short stroll through our gardens and you step back in time on to the platform at Woody Bay Station, a delightfull restored narrow guage railway making us an ideal location for the railway enthusiast and country lover alike. Glad you enjoyed it.
If you would recommend to a friend why rate the rooms as 3 out of 5. We hope you enjoyed your stay and would be happy to be of service again.
We are a pair of regular Devon visitors and look forward to short breaks in the area. We try to find a base where we can travel from and that is home for the time. Read more

Breakfast can start half an hour earlier if needed, as most of our guests are on holiday we dont like to try and rush anybody though,
Visit to Lynton area so my brother could visit the L&B Railway Read more
Close but not too close to the railway is often an attraction for our guests, glad you enjoyed your stay
A two-night stay booked at the last minute. Looking for a quiet place to stay in the general area, I found Moorlands from the website of the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway which is a few yards away. Clean and comfortable with all the facilities I wanted; a friendly welcome, good service and a great breakfast. Read more
We will look forward to a return visit - thank you
On arrival, I could not have asked for more help. I was given a warm welcome and help in finding everything i needed. The hotel was clean and tidy and, although perhaps a little dated, absolutely fine for my overnight stay. The grounds and location were beautiful and the local area full of opportunities to explore. Unfortunately, my trip didn't allow time for that. My only slight criticism was that the shower water pressure was weak and the bathroom could do with modernising. Recommended. Read more
Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay even for the one night at a wedding close by
We had a lovely stay at this apartment it has all you need, we have stayed here before and will be returning again. The people are very friendly and helpful, it is a lovely area to explore Thanks Read more

Pleasant, friendly and relaxing. Excellent food and helpful staff Read more
Thank you for a favourable review, this weekend went very well with most people staying attending a special event at the Woody Bay Station. Most enjoyable for us as well.
My wife and I stayed three nights in the tranquil beauty of Exmoor. Enjoying excellent, if exhausting country and coastal walks right from the doorstep we also copped out and rode the narrow gauge steam railway starting from the station at the end of the garden! Wonderful pubs in the vicinity but the hotel dinner proved a superb option and good value. Being an erstwhile railway hotel it's a great place for train enthusiasts, full of railway history. We weren't surrounded by anoraks, though. Read more
Thank you for a nice review, see you again soon
One of many stays here. Some are one night stays and some are short breaks. But however long the stay, the same feeling of relaxation appears quickly! Read more

I brought my very elderly Mother and an elderly friend for a brief stay and found that Moorlands provided a very acceptable place to stay for criteria that were difficult to fulfill.(i.e.One single room and a ground floor room offering two beds). Read more

My husband and I had an opportunity whilst our 2 children were away to go away ourselves for a few days so having been to moorlands many years before thought it would be good to go back and knowing they accept dogs was a bonus ad we have a 14 week old pup Read more
How nice that you came back after so long. So very pleased that you enjoyed it once again
It was brilliant to have a very comfortable room and a wonderful bed, often, when booking single rooms you get the least attractive, not so here. I did find the shower a bit hard to work,but it was clean and adequate. Read more
Single room recently redecorated so glad you liked it
We stayed in the larger self catering apartment on the 1st Floor. Very clean and spacious with nice views of the gardens from all windows. A nice place to relax after a day spent exploring the area. Read more

Thank you, we try our best. We felt that doing an early breakfast was easy compared to running 33 miles. Well done to all those who took part.
Have stayed in the apartment at Moorlands several times now, along with our dog to enjoy some of the best countryside and walks in the country. Plus in the case of Woolacombe one of the best beaches in the country. Read more
Dean apartment is particularly popular with guests with dogs, glad you enjoyed your stay once again.
A two night stay which enabled us to get an impression of Exmoor and the North Devon coast. The last part of the journey was an experience in itself, but was completed in daylight and we received a warm welcome. Read more
From arrival to departure we were looked after by Ian and Christine and made to feel welcome. They had no problem catering for a wheat free diet. This all helped to make our stay relaxing and stress free. Read more
We are usually happy to deal with dietary requirements, some notice is apreciated so we can get some stock in if necessary. If you have a reqirement there's no harm in asking.

Hotel was quietly situated in nice grounds and good surrounding countryside - ideal for walking holiday. Quite well placed for getting to areas in North Devon without being too far from anywhere. Read more
What can I say - Thank you
We stayed in the Bodley Apartment for 3 days and found it to be extreemly comfortable. Very friendly and relaxed hotel with nice grounds. A great base for touring North Devon Coast and Exmoor. Whilst driving back from Woody bay at dusk had to stop the car for a baby deer. It then stood next to the car just a couple of feet from my drivers side door for some 5-10 minutes looking at us looking at it. A truly memorable moment we will always remember. Read more
Very pleased you enjoyed your stay, however we cant guarantee the deer everytime
We stayed for four nights in the self catering accommodation with our dog. It was very comfortable with everything we needed for a lovely stay. The area is stunning with some gorgeous walks and views. Read more
My husband,friend and I had a wonderful time at Moorlands. Everything was perfect including the weather and scenery. Ian and Chris were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. We had delicious breakfasts and evening meals which was a god send after our long walks. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location so peaceful. We loved the steam railway at the end of the beautiful garden and feeding the lambs too. It was a special touch. We would certainly recommend it to everyone. Read more
Very comfortable beds and pleasant rooms on ground floor. Read more
My partner and I stayed here as we were attending a wedding reception nearby and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moorlands. A very friendly welcome awaited us and we were then shown to our enormous room (& equally large bathroom - only negative was poor pressure in the shower). The house is set in beautiful grounds with a stunning view and the breakfast was delicious. Will definately be returning next year for the festival in Lynmouth. Read more
overnight stayto attend a nearby wedding Read more
Really enjoyed our stay. The self-catering apartment allows us to be private but feel safe and well-looked after.It is also good to be able to have the dog staying with us. Read more
The property is well located and is reasonable value for money, but is in need of renovation as the rooms are old and "tired" Read more
Our property is an old victorian house and has been decorated accordingly. I agree, if you are looking for a boutique hotel this would not be the place for you.
We chose Moorlands largely on the strength of the reviews found on the website for a long weekend over the Mayday bank holiday - we are looking for a house in the southwest and wanted to use the break as an initial reccy; as well as to remind ourselves of the lovely Devon countryside and indulge in a few cream teas. Read more
Unfortunately as we are on the Exmoor National Park we are not allowed to illuminate our sign.
Lovely hotel, friendly owners. Rooms were comfortable, had problem with water but they sorted it out quickly. However, no place to go for early morning walks unless you have your wellies.. Read more
May I sugest a walk along our local railway line, or the road opposite Moorlands goes directly up onto Exmoor
Beautiful setting and grounds. We were there in Autumn but it must be a lovely spot on a good summer's day Read more
Bedside lamps and ceiling lights have now all been replaced. We wouldnt have held our guest responsible, but understand his concerns
In lovely surroundings, accomodation standard is excellent. Have now spent 5 short breaks at Moorlands and will be going back next year. Read more
Thanks for a lovely reveiw
A great place to go for exploring Exmoor whilst still being near a main road. Also has the historical advantage of being associated with the newly resurrected Lynton and Barnstaple narrow guage steam railway which appears magically through the trees at the side of the grounds. Read more
The next review says the oposite about the beds. We cant win this one
The bed and breakfast was nice if you want to listen to steam trains and lambs, the beds for us were very hard but if you like hard beds they will be fantastic for you, we have at home a memory foam bed these do not apply in bed and breakfasts we did not take this into account, we thought that the price of the bed and breakfast was very high for 1 night but except we were there for 1 night only. Read more
The last review says the oposite about the beds. We cant win this one
Hotel is set in beautiful location,service is curteous without being intrusive.Rooms are clean and tidy Read more
Sorry we cant do anything about the weather
