Review from Independent Hostels Guide January 2018
An Eco-hostel which is brand new to the network.
Exmoor Bunkbarn appears to do exactly what it says on the tin. It is on Exmoor. The address says Bridgetown but it is quite a step from an urban centre. This is A Good Thing. An easy walk takes you to open country on Exmoor`s Winsford Hill. Nestling amongst what they claim is some of the most beautiful scenery in the country, it is also driving distance to attractions such as the Exmoor Pony Centre, Wimbleball Lake and Dunster Castle.
And yes, it is a bunkbarn. It is on a family run farm, Week Farm, of mixed livestock over 500 acres. Exmoor Bunkbarn has been converted from a granary and some machinery is still in place. There is accommodation for groups of up to 25 in 3 bunkrooms. An open plan kitchen, dining room is heated by a wood burning stove and all the wood- and stone-work is pleasingly intact. Also, drying room and shower rooms as you’ve come to expect.
If you explore the gallery on their website and on social media, though you’ll also see an element they are rightly proud of but isn’t highlighted in their name: Their Eco-credentials. They walk the recycling walk with reclaimed wood in the furniture and even a pitchfork curtain rail! The woodburner is fuelled by woodchip from their own land. I could go on…
I think it sounds cracking and, as one of the Independent Hostel’s newest members, you should write a review after you’ve stayed and spread the word.

Looking for a Bunkhouse on Exmoor for up to 25 people? Look no further! This brand new Exmoor Bunkbarn has plenty of beds, fantastic showers, a drying room, wood burner, as well as being situated in the Exe Valley, close to moorland, rivers and trails.
Here is myself and Chris from Plymouth College heading out on a recce ride, in preparation for a summer residential.https://www.facebook.com/Exmoo...
Review by Sarah Adams on our facebook page April 2018
A fantastic facility. A basic barn with some real touches of luxury and necessity from a drying room to USB charging. Gorgeously rustic but so much space to accommodate large parties. Would definitely recommend!

Our walking group has just experienced a very comfortable stay at the Exmoor Bunkbarn. We have been using similar accommodation over the past 35yrs and this rates as one of the best we have stayed in. The bunkbarn was very warm and there was continuous hot water. The kitchen is very well equipped ( with sharp knives) and dishwasher!. The drying room is more like a sauna and the toilet/shower facilities were spotless. Prior to our arrival and during our stay , the owners were very welcoming, helpful and prompt in dealing with any queries etc.
Review by Andrea from the RSPB 12th December 2018
Our RSPB Nature Reserve team has just stayed at the Exmoor Bunkbarn for a regional meeting. It was a great location and the bunkbarn was ideal for an informal meeting in the kitchen by the woodburner and an overnight stay all in one location. It is well equipped for cooking and is clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Excellent throughout!! Clean and tidy accommodation and bathrooms, big BBQ, quiet location and we thoroughly enjoyed the complementary logs for the campfire. Thanks for this memorable holiday. See you again in the future,

Very helpful and accommodating host who really went the extra mile to make sure we had a good time and had everything we could possibly need. The place was perfect for a large gathering, a beautiful location and lots of fun (even when the weather was against us!). Great value and a special place - we will definitely be back. Thanks for everything.
Did you know that Exmoor is named after the River Exe and it's moorland reaches in to both West Somerset and North Devon. Exmoor was made a National Park in the 1950s. However, more recently, parts of Exmoor were made ‘special sites of scientific interest’ and because of this, protection is afforded to certain types vegetation in the area. Exmoor is a paradise for the geologist and geographers. It has over 30 miles of coastline where there are rocks over 4 million years old!
