The Rest and Be Thankful Inn is a 19th century coaching Inn at the heart of Exmoor National Park, providing first-class bed & breakfast accommodation, local home-cooked meals and a warm and friendly atmosphere.

This popular Inn and restaurant 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 guest bedrooms provide guests with a level of comfort more usually found in a four-star hotel rather than a Country Inn. All bedrooms have en-suites with good quality furnishings. The 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.

Each room 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. The 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.

The 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. All food is home-cooked using local produce whenever possible, and 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.

In addition to the restaurant there is an adjoining room seating up to 16 people, which can be used for private parties. Booking is advisable.

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 6pm until 9pm. In addition to our new restaurant menu we offer a weekly specials board, light luncheon menu and traditional Sunday lunch Carvery.

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