We stayed here for just one night (Saturday) in a 'large double'. Not as large as I would have liked, but certainly adequate, & the balcony was a nice addition. The balcony catches the morning sun, & sitting out before breakfast was lovely. The window for breakfast is only an hour, between 8 & 9, which is shorter than most,...

We have visited Lynmouth for many years and have never been here. We visited for lunch. I didn't partake but they seem to have a really good range of ice creams. The service was good and I enjoyed my lunch (just a sandwich) but no problems. Will return, even considering staying as we found out they accept dogs.

Looking for 2 night break, we found Riverside Cottage ideally situated on the edge of the river. Early risers will enjoy a selection of cereals, full English or veggie breakfast with lighter options available. We opted for a river view which came with a little balcony, great for people watching, it's amazing to notice the huge rise and fall of...

Sunrise to sundown; balcony, feet up, glass of wine, watching the world go by with a smile on it's face. No need for a good book. Even if you don't like eggs you have to try the poached eggs for breakfast.

This is such a lovely BnB. Super friendly host, which made such a difference. Great activity recommendations, super comfortable bed, and an excellent breakfast, what more could you want?!! Perfect location for exploring Lynmouth, with a wonderful balcony overlooking the river, which proved to be a joy for people watching.

Visited lunch-time whilst on holiday in June with my wife . Very busy but welcoming. They explained there would be a delay as they were so busy but wait was not too long. Had a separate gluten free menu including fish and chips Both gluten free fish and chips and the normal fish and chips were excellent. Thank you.

Just stayed for 2 nights to meet friends. Perfect room, allowing us to take all 3 Labradors with no hassle and no extortionate surcharge. Nice balcony overlooking the park, and a sea view. Delightful, fresh cooked breakfast each morning, with the dogs again made welcome. Room was spacious and airy, curtains could have kept a bit more light out for...

We had just the one night in the incredibly comfortable bed. The room was delightful and the view from balcony just beautiful. The icing on the cake was the bath. So many guest houses only have a shower. Very tasty breakfast served by friendly hostess.

We had a lovely comfortable large double room with balcony and it was a real treat to sit, drink tea, eat fudge and watch the world go by. Weather was fantastic. Breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, and have achieved the highest rating from the Food Standards Agency. We have seven rooms, six with sea views and private balconies. Each balcony is complete with chairs and the large rooms also have a small table to allow you to sit and watch the world go by. Our restaurant is open between 10.00am and 5.00pm serving excellent freshly-made food, locally sourced and prepared by our in-house chef. Riverside Cottage is a perfect base for walking, cycling, fishing (River Lyn, harbour, beach or boat), and riding, pony trekking or just as a centre for North Devon touring. Alternately just relax on your balcony with a drink and admire the views (selected rooms only). ... more   less
