Details

This popular Inn and restaurant and bed and breakfast is in the centre of Wheddon Cross, the highest village on Exmoor, and a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful National Park.

The Inn was originally a staging post for travellers on their way between Dunster and Dulverton, and you will still find a warm welcome, good food and extremely comfortable accommodation awaiting you there today, almost 200 years later!

Whether you are looking for a bed and breakfast for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings on Exmoor, or a more active holiday, the Rest and Be Thankful Inn and Exmoor are sure to meet your every need.

The fantastic Exmoor National Park is home to Snow Drop Valley. Tours and walks to Snow Drop Valley can be accessed from the bus leaving right from our door. The B&B also has enviable access to the West Somerset Railway less than 10 miles away.

If you are looking for a walking, cycling, or fly-fishing break, we will do everything we can to provide you with the perfect holiday. There is a secure store at the Inn, where cycles and other equipment can be kept, and we also have a drying room for wet clothes and boots. Horse riding and hunting can be arranged with prior notice.

Our restaurant has firmly established itself as the place to eat when visiting the moor, or to pop in for a light snack when out for a ramble. We take pride in our traditional home-cooked pub meals in the heart of Exmoor, using local produce in and around Wheddon Cross Exmoor whenever possible. Great care and attention is taken in the cooking and presentation of each dish. Vegetarian dishes are always available, and any special dietary requests can be accommodated with prior notice.

The bar area has a traditional country pub atmosphere, with log fires in winter. There is also a skittle alley and a pool table. The bar’s normal opening times are (11am – 3pm, and 6pm – 12 midnight) and 10am for morning coffee. We serve food in the bar and restaurant from 12 noon until 2pm, and from 7pm until 9pm. In addition to our new restaurant menu we offer a weekly specials board, light luncheon menu and traditional Sunday lunch Carvery.

Our Bed and Breakfast Exmoor Accommodation provide guests with a level of comfort more usually found in a four-star hotel rather than a Country Inn. All our bedrooms are en-suite with good quality furnishings. Our comfortable beds are made up with crisp cotton sheets. Soft white bathrobes and a basket containing good quality toiletries and face cloths provide extra touches of luxury.

Great care and attention has been taken to ensure your complete enjoyment whilst in Accommodation in Exmoor, from double glazing to sound proofing the floor so that limited noise penetrates from the bar below. The two bedrooms at the front of the building are large and spacious and the three at the rear enjoy views of Dunkery Beacon and the surrounding countryside.

Each room is like a hotel rather than a guest house and has a mini bar, safe deposit box, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities, television and telephone. All bedrooms are non-smoking. There are ironing facilities on the first floor landing.

Our family bedroom can accommodate two adults and two children or up to four adults in comfort. A choice of a double bed and two singles or four singles beds is available in this room.
