Luxury meets the wild at Dunkery Beacon Country House. Located in an elevated position on the hillside of Wootton Courtenay, an idyllic Exmoor village close to medieval Dunster and tourist favourite Minehead, you need only step so far as the wrap-around veranda and the staggering views will sweep you off your feet.
Four-poster luxury for your Exmoor minimoon
Each of the former hunting lodge’s eight bedrooms are positioned to make the most of these vistas. If you can bring yourself to look away, though, you’ll be delighted by the character touches inside that mean no two rooms are the same.
And while each is charming and spacious, there is a clear favourite for an Exmoor minimoon. This four-poster room blends grand furnishings with gentle duck egg upholstery, patterned wallpaper and a raised window. Snuggle down into it once and you’ll never want to leave…
Experience foodie heaven in Somerset
Dining at Dunkery Beacon perhaps best encapsulates the hotel’s balance between countryside and decadence. The experience begins with a pre-dinner drink beside the log burner. The extensive Berry Bros. & Rudd wine list and selection of local spirits offer plenty of tempting tipples.
Move through to the dining room of The Coleridge Restaurant and the country appeal continues. Nowhere is this more true than if you nab the table drawn up to a converted fireplace, which is now a cosy, cushion-clad seating area. The award-winning menu proudly showcases locally sourced ingredients to create top-class plates with a sense of adventure – try the pigeon with fig and you’ll see what we mean!
