House parties special offer

For a limited time, we've a special offer on house parties. For a stay of 2 or more nights, the price is now £640 per night (was £690). That's amazing value for dinner, bed & breakfast for a group of up to 12 people, with exclusive use of Exmoor House. The offer doesn't apply to stays over the Christmas/New Year period (see my post of 12th June for more info about house parties during the festive season).

Reiki & remedies

If you've stayed with us recently - or even just passed by and seen my poster in the window - you probably know that I'm a practitioner of various complementary therapies and techniques: Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Metamorphic Technique. I've been doing them all for a while, but only relatively recently started promoting them again (we wanted to concentrate on the operational side of Exmoor House itself first!).

So this is just a reminder that Reiki and the other techniques are available during your stay; it's best to book a little way in advance though. The benefits can be many and varied. Obviously it would be unethical of me (not to mention illegal!) to claim that they can 'cure' anything, but many people - myself included - have experienced amazing results. And for a chance to have some me-time and totally relax, Reiki or Metamorphic Technique are hard to beat. Bach Flower Remedies give the opportunity to gently balance any unhelpful emotions you might be feeling.

Of course, you don't have to be staying at Exmoor House to book an appointment... I welcome enquiries from people living locally.

What are you doing at Christmas?

For a different way of celebrating Christmas and New Year, how about a house party at Exmoor House? We'll be open exclusively for house parties over the festive season, for stays of two nights or more on a full-board basis. You could have a traditional style Christmas feast, a buffet or something else entirely - whatever you prefer. Just let us know and we'll give you a quote.

You'll have the place to yourselves so you can be as riotous or as calm as you like - a chance to spend some real quality time with family or friends. Enjoy the countryside, relax by the fire, play games, sit and chat... and escape the endless TV repeats!

This is definitely not one of those 'turkey & tinsel' type breaks (though you can of course have either or both!). No organised entertainment, etc - you're free to please yourselves as to what you'd like to do, with all the cooking, washing up etc will be taken care of. All you need to do is have a thoroughly good time.

Sounds appealing? Get in touch!

Festivals of walking, food & culture on Exmoor

There are some fabulous events coming up on Exmoor later in the year.

For the first time there's an Exmoor Autumn Walking Festival - it's from 18th-21st September. Details will be available soon but if it's anything like the walking festival in April/May, there'll be some really interesting and unusual guided walks. There's a link to the festival site from our website.

The Exmoor Food Festival is from 2nd-11th October. Exmoor House is taking part: we'll be offering Exmoor tasting platters - lunch with a difference. You can try a selection of our pates and terrines, pickles and cheeses, served tapas-style, with salad and our home-made bread. There are some wonderful puddings to follow if you still have room. Booking is essential - please see our website, where you'll find our contact details.

And there'll be a feast of culture too in October (8th-18th) with the Two Moors Festival: concerts, recitals and other exciting happenings across Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Where to stay? Exmoor House of course!
