Lynmouth is a delightful village and this is the place to rest and recover - especially if you are doing the coastal path. I have nothing but praise for this place. My friend and I had a single room each - actually mine was a double four poster bedded room; better than the one I stayed in for my honeymoon.... More

Well this was our 4th visit. End of November 2012. To be honest the quality of this Bed and Breakfast cannot be beaten in our opinion.

Would definitely revisit. When we arrived we were offered a tray of tea and biscuits whilst being shown to our room which were served in the lounge. A lovely touch.

We have known Sharon and Neil for many years and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them. A totally spotlessly clean guest house, beautiful rooms, stunning location in tranquil and special Lynmouth, Lorna Doone House even comes with parking. The variety and quality of the food is par excellence with sorbets at evening meal. Where today do you still get that!... More

Very friendly and helpful, clean and tidy throughout, we had a comfortable room on the first floor overlooking the river. With just a matter of minutes to walk into the village and situated on a quiet cul-de-sac this is an ideal place to stay and explore the surrounding area or just stay local and walk the area. The evening meals... More
