four star bed and breakfast in north devon


Sampson Barton is a B&B in North Devon providing the ideal setting for a wonderful break. Converted from a dairy farm back in the seventies, it sits on a quiet country lane surrounded by iconic patchwork fields with Exmoor's luscious green hills in the distance, providing the perfect backdrop to the sleepy hamlet, housing just 4 other properties. Nestled between the quaint villages of George and Kings Nympton, just 3 miles from the market town of South Molton, our delightful, Devon Longhouse has 3 double en-suite rooms and 1 superior double with king size bed (The Peppermint Room) all with fantastic views of the garden. These idyllic surroundings provide the perfect escape much needed from the fast pace of everyday life.

For 30 years this North Devon B&B was always considered a comfortable place to stay, however, during the past 11 years since moving in we have poured our hearts and souls into this wonderful house and have sympathetically decorated and renovated all of the bedrooms, guest lounge, dining room and public areas and gained AA 4* status.

Sampson Barton B&B is in the perfect location for all that North Devon has to offer, such as award-winning beaches on the North Devon coast, Woolacombe being the Number 1 beach in the UK. Picturesque villages on Exmoor with their areas of outstanding natural beauty to experience and admire. There are National Trust properties and gardens to enjoy in abundance with RHS Rosemoor being one of the main reasons guests come to stay with us.

Our aim is to offer the very best possible for our guests whilst staying with us in our B&B, ensuring their experience creates many happy memories for a long time to come; not just whilst staying with us, but also to have a wonderful time exploring the area and sampling the delights North Devon has to offer time and time again.
