Exmoor Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast

West Lynch Farm

Our Farmhouse, West Lynch Farm, dates back to the 1400's built as a traditional 'Open-Hall Manor House' of its time!  There is also some evidence that there was an existing building of some importance on this site in 800AD!  Wouldn't it be amazing to discover how these people hundreds of years ago lived!? 


Step back in the footsteps of time when you stay with us and enjoy our special National Trust countryside that surrounds us!

When you come to stay with us you can surround yourself in friendly, homely comfort, with central heating, comfortable beds, and spacious rooms. Our huge dining room with wood-burning stove, rescued ships beams, and 17th century ornate windows, offers a story to be told to all our visitors.

We are situated in the heart of beautiful unspoilt Exmoor countryside with countless walks to the sea, on Porlock Marsh, through the woods to Hurlstone Point, Bossington Hill, Selworthy Hill and Village, only one mile from Porlock for evening meal!

You can find out about the history of the farmhouse here, and discover some of its hidden secrets!


We have three lovely spacious, homely rooms for you to choose from depending on your requirements and your group size.

  • OTTERS HOLT - is our largest room suitable for a small group or a family extending from front to rear of the farmhouse with a double and two single beds, a table for activities and games, and is situated on the Ground Floor.  The Shower Room for Otters Holt is at the top of the stairs.  For single guests this Shower Room may be shared with a single person in Badgers Sett.

  • BADGERS SETT - is our Standard Double, spacious, warm and cosy, and well appointed.  Badgers Sett can be used as a single or a double room.  The Shower Room is across the corridor.  For single guests this Shower Room may be shared with a single person in Otters Holt.

    Both Otters and Badgers share the same bathroom, however when we have more than one person booked for either room at any time we close down the other, so the bathroom is never overcrowded.

  • FOXES DEN is our high quality room with a single and a double bed and appointed to a higher quality, with a private shower room in a 'Penthouse' style annexe.  Warm, comfortable, welcoming and charming!  Foxes Den can be used as a single, a twin, a double or for two adults and one child.

  • Dogs Welcome in all rooms at £5pn per dog. 

  • Bicycles can be stored over-night in a barn FOC
