The food was great and my gluten free diet was catered for so well with lots of choice. There are great walks from the doorstep and Lynmouth town just a... More

Being able to park alongside the guest house rather than in Tors Road was a bonus. The evening meal was one of the nicest we have enjoyed in a long time,... More
