A Ginger Peanut Stay – photo Nick Hook Photography

What do you look for when you are looking for that perfect staycation?  Whether it be for a few days to get away and recalibrate, an overnight stay en route to see family, a business trip, a comfortable place to stay for an event, wedding or party – The Ginger Peanut in Bampton is just the ticket!

Bampton is an ideal location from which to visit the local surrounding area and all that it has to offer. We are on the edge of Exmoor and within striking distance of both the north and south coasts offering gorgeous beaches and endless coastal paths and superlative views.

Exmoor has much to offer walkers, food lovers and families. Spot the wild Exmoor ponies, stags, herds of red deer, birds of prey and the occasional fox! Walk along the river valleys of the Barle and the Exe or, if you are here in the season, why not do a spot of salmon or trout fishing? For the equestrians amongst you, this is horse heaven. There are endless bridleways and moorland to enjoy at a leisurely pace or gallop hell for leather across the heather! If you prefer a quieter life, visit the pretty villages of Dulverton and Dunster, browse the shops, enjoy a Devon cream tea or a pub lunch. In Summer enjoy picnics by the rivers and in the Winter enjoy a cosy lunch in a Devon pub or restaurant.

The coast offers coasteering, kayaking, standup paddleboarding and surfing for the adventurous water lovers amongst you. Alternatively, a leisurely amble on the coastal path or along the long sandy beaches of North Devon is enough to build an appetite.

At the end of the day, retire back to the Ginger Peanut and enjoy a drink at the bar, a cup of tea and a piece of Mrs Mundy’s delicious cake, a leisurely lunch or an excellent dinner cooked by our Italian Head Chef, Vincenzo Gallitto. Our bedrooms are the ultimate in comfort with luxury superking and king beds, power showers, flatscreen tvs, superfast wifi and a pantry stocked with goodies to tuck into along with teas and coffees.
