Dunkery Beacon Country House is a unique place to stay in Exmoor National Park, set in half an acre of beautiful gardens in the quiet picturesque village of Wootton Courtenay. The property features a lovely veranda and outside patio seating, all of which afford breath-taking views over the countryside and moor.

The individually decorated rooms include sumptuous four poster beds, pocket sprung mattresses, power showers, HD Televisions, and DVD players, together with homemade shortbread and fresh milk for each room.

The hotel’s fully licensed Coleridge Restaurant is open to residents from Wednesday to Saturday evening. The food is an eclectic mix of Modern English with a few exotic twists thrown in. The restaurant itself has won many awards, including Taste of the West Gold and Best Hotel Restaurant in the Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards. Al fresco dining can be enjoyed in the summer months, weather permitting.

For active guests we can provide maps, information on local walks and attractions and secure bike storage with jet wash and maintenance facilities.

A large secure off-road car park is available to guests.
