Ideal for enjoying yourself with activities such as walking, horse riding, fishing and shooting as well as being an ideal base for touring the North and South Devon coastlines.
With 6 individually styled bedrooms, all with charming personal touches and attention to detail that will give you the perfect retreat from life’s stresses and strains.
Tastefully refurbished, Karslake House’s style is traditional country guesthouse with deep set windows, comfy sofa’s and peace and quiet at it’s heart – all combined with our friendly, yet discreet service and genuinely warm welcome that starts as you arrive with a complementary afternoon tea with homemade biscuits served in our lounge or charming garden, to provide a truly relaxing atmosphere.
Our renown “Exmoor breakfasts” with local jams, marmalades and locally sourced produce (unless you prefer something lighter) will make sure your day starts perfectly and, come the afternoon, our spacious restaurant and delightful gardens offer the perfect setting for treating yourself to a light lunch or delicious afternoon tea.
