The Exmoor White Horse Inn
If ever you had a notion to spend a few days sampling the joys of the English countryside from a base that pampers the sybarite in you, this is the place to go. This does not mean that the bird of passage seeking a brief respite will be disappointed, but, once arrived, it is difficult to tear oneself away. Mine host is unfailingly cheerful and obliging. The rooms combine genuine antiquity with modem standards of comfort; the bars are stocked with a wide variety of well kept brews and the menu would satisfy the most demanding of gourmets. From its river side location alongside the upper reaches of the river Exe expeditions can be organised to explore the surrounding beauties of Exmoor on horse back or on foot. Salmon and course fishing - in season - can be arranged on arrival. For those of a more vigourous disposition, the Exmoor stag hounds meet in the court yard. Their terms are not at the lower end of the market but, out of season they offer three days for the price of two, or five for the price of three.
