About us

The Jubilee Inn was built in 1936 and was once frequented by the legendary film star, Terry Thomas, whose family lived here in the 1960s and 70s. It has recently undergone a complete renovation and extension to create an exclusive private family home which offers seasonal services to private guests.  Located on the Devon and Somerset borders – the home is with easy access to both Exmoor and all the activities that come with the National Park, as well as being within easy reach of the Exmoor coastline.
