Relax and Unwind

on the edge of Exmoor

About Bratton View

After living and working in Central London we moved to North Devon in 2003 to retire. We loved the view and the house so much we decided it would be selfish to keep it to ourselves !

We  have made our home welcome to our guests who come from around the country to experience an incredible vista and all the home comforts you will need for a peaceful weekend or a comfortable long stay.

Your home-from-home

Bratton View occupies the ground floor and is completely independent of Farm Gate – where I live with my husband. You’ve got your own space in this wonderful location situated down a private lane, our property enjoys stunning views over the North Devon countryside, even as far as Hartland Point and the sea. The beauty of this location means you’re so close to Exmoor National Park, without the isolation that some more rural areas bring – you can be in Barnstaple within 15 minutes.

Your Home from home comforts

With your own front door from the patio, you enter into the comfortable centrally-heated lounge with a TV and multi-fuel burner for those cosy evenings in the Autumn and Winter. In the apartment there is a fully fitted kitchen with everything you need to make your snacks and picnics for the days ahead.

The bedroom has a king or twin beds. En-suite to the bedroom is a brand new high-spec wet room with under-floor heating and heated towel rail. There is also a range of books and maps at your disposal.

Personal touches

I  enjoy my painting and craft work and some of my  paintings are around the apartment. All the furniture is hand-painted creating a wonderful homely and vintage feel.

You can be sure of a real home cooked breakfast with all of the trimmings served to you in your apartment at a time of your suiting – be that 6am or 12pm, whichever suits you best. Fresh fruit salad , juices , choices of cereals and homemade marmalade and jam on offer as well.

For those who prefer more privacy Bratton View is happy to accept guests on a self-catering basis. Or why not mix and match? You decide.

Providing your gateway to Exmoor

You’ve got so many options here – make the most of exploring the wilds of Exmoor or relax on the patio with the view, a good book and a glass of wine. If you don’t want to leave civilization behind completely, Barnstaple is just 15 minutes away.

The Apartment

Unlike most North Devon B&Bs, Bratton View boasts a fully fitted, self-contained apartment. Our guests get all the comforts of home, with no reliance on the main house for any facilities.

We’ve got a well equipped kitchen, a comfy lounge, a high-spec wet room, free WiFi throughout and a cosy, vintage bedroom waiting just for you!

The Bedroom

This versatile room can either be a twin or a King size depending on your needs. Comfy mattresses and crisp sheets will help you unwind.

The simple and beautiful interior design features paintings by the owner and even the furniture has a personal touch, having been lovingly restored and adapted by Angela herself.

There’s plenty of space for clothing storage, just in case you over-pack!

En-suite Wet Room

A genuine wet room with high spec fixtures and fittings, including a powerful shower. We’ve included some of our favourite luxury toiletries, as well as fresh towels and a side-lit mirror. The perfect place to wash off and relax after a long day of exploring Exmoor.

Your Own Kitchen

This lovely space has everything you need to rustle up a meal if you fancy a quiet night in. Remember to bring some goodies with you – the Morrisons just off the A361 from the M5 could be a good bet (they do some good wine deals too!)

Lounge/Breakfast Room

A spacious lounge / diner all to yourselves, complete with WiFi. Your living space includes a cosy wood burner with a sofa, table and chairs and television.

This homely space is immaculately presented and leads out onto the patio – here (if the weather’s kind) you can see for 35 miles to Hartland and the sea. A wonderful place to spend an evening, listening to the birds and watching the sun go down.


In the morning, wake up at a time to suit you and look forward to Angela’s superb breakfast. We don’t operate a strict time-frame for breakfast, we serve it when you’re ready – be that 8am or 11am.

You can expect fresh fruit salad, cereals, fruit juice and the heartiest cooked breakfast you can handle, with all the trimmings. Top it off with Angela’s homemade marmalade and jam, washed down with a fresh coffee or pot of tea.

Welcome to Bratton View!

We look forward to welcoming you to our luxurious and relaxing bed and breakfast in Bratton Fleming, on the edge of Exmoor national park.

This has been our home for years and, with its 35-mile view to the sea, it would be rather selfish to keep it to ourselves! We welcome visitors throughout the year – they come to experience North Devon or explore Exmoor. We have walkers, detoxers, city folk and country folk alike.

We think you’ll love it here in Bratton Fleming, but don’t take our word for it, see some of the comments from our happy visitors!
