English Country House Bed and Breakfast on Exmoor
New owners Bruce and Sheila bought The Great House in January 2020 and spent six months gently restoring it before re-opening as a luxury Bed & Breakfast in July 2020.
An historic building oozing with character and full of original features, The Great House is a Grade II Listed, 17th century Country House offering luxury accommodation in traditional English style.

Book An Experience
A visit to Exmoor National Park is much more than enjoying the spectacular scenery – why not immerse yourself completely in our way of life and book an experience?
From Alpaca Walking and trekking the moors on Horseback, through to being a Keeper for the day at Exmoor Zoo or a Sea Kayak Guided Tour, there is so much to do both on land and water. During the Summer months, experiences are extremely popular, so we would advise you to book well ahead of your stay to avoid disappointment.
We are committed to finding eco-friendly, sustainable solutions in the day-to-day running of our B&B – please see our “Environmental Policy” for full details.
Located in Timberscombe within the Exmoor National Park in South West England, just 2 miles from the National Trust’s Dunster Castle in the the historic mediaeval village of Dunster.
Approx 45 mins from the M5 at both Bridgwater and Taunton.
There are sandy beaches just 4 miles away on the coast at Dunster Beach and 6 miles away at Minehead.
The Great House is on the outskirts of the tiny, rural village of Timberscombe (population. 476), a short 150 yard stroll from the village centre with its church, village shop/post office and excellent pub, The Lion Inn.
In accordance with Government guidelines, our dining tables are placed 2 metres apart to conform to minimum social distancing standards.
When we are at full capacity, there will still only be a maximum of thirteen people at any one time. Alternatively, guests can choose to dine in their rooms, should they prefer.
We can offer a choice of three-course evening meals for our guests, but please book in advance as we are a small B&B and all meals are cooked to order.
We will, of course, continue to thoroughly disinfect all rooms in between guests as part of our enhanced standard cleaning regime, as well as communal areas.
Please do call us if you have any concerns and we will be happy to assist.

“Best B&B we have ever stayed in and very friendly pub down the road. Would highly recommend it. Close to sea and within Exmoor National Park.”
