The Rest & Be Thankful Inn is in the centre of Wheddon Cross near Minehead. We are an ideal base for those who want to visit attractions in Somerset and Devon, plus being the perfect base for exploring Exmoor National Park. Wheddon Cross is the highest village on Exmoor and the starting point to many fantastic walking and cycle routes.
The inn was originally a staging post for travellers on their way between Dunster and Dulverton. For over 200 years the inn has offered a warm welcome, friendly hospitality and a place where guests can rest, relax and replenish. Nowadays, we provide comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms, along with a family friendly bar and restaurant.
Our guest rooms have been thoughtfully decorated and furnished. They are of a standard and level of comfort that you would usually see in a four star hotel, rather than a country inn. All rooms include:
Crisp cotton sheets.
Soft white bathrobes.
Safe deposit box.
Tea and coffee making facilities.
Complimentary basket with good quality toiletries and face cloths.
Ironing facilities are available on the first floor landing. We also have a family room that can sleep up to 4 people. This has a multi-way set up and can be a double and twin or 4 singles. Please advise when booking which set up is required. Great care and attention has been taken to ensure your complete enjoyment whilst in Accommodation in Exmoor, from double glazing to soundproofing the floor so that limited noise penetrates from the bar below. The two bedrooms at the front of the building are large and spacious and the three at the rear enjoy views of Dunkery Beacon and the surrounding countryside.
Our restaurant and bar is open to both residents and non-residents. Locally, we have a good reputation for the food we serve. We pride ourselves in our traditional home cooked pub meals, made using local produce from in and around Wheddon Cross and Exmoor. 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.
