We spent a night staying with the delightful hosts John and Susan. They run an excellent B&B on the main street of Lynton, a quiet country town. It is well placed about 5 min walk from the small centre and 10 min walk from the astounding Valley of the Rocks walk which runs along the cliff face overlooking the Bristol...

Have just returned from a single nights stay at this Bed & Breakfast. My wife and I found it to be a charming guesthouse located in a quiet spot of Lynton. The host were extremely helpful in allowing us to check in earlier than the standard time due to a family commitment in the afternoon and they were most accommodating....

We felt so lucky to have been referred (by another B&B) to The Denes. What a wonderful B&B in a beautiful old house. John and Susan are fantastic and accommodating hosts; Susan happily made me an omelet on request. The room and mattress were very comfortable; shower was understandably a bit small and a bit slow to drain, but perfectly...

We got a warm welcome with offers of tea on arrival. Room was a good size and very comfortable. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Location was good, with pleasant views, and good walks nearby. Lynton itself is quaint as is Lynemouth. Would highly recommend this B&B. Eve + Baz

Thanks for the review Eve & Baz, I would point out to viewers on Trip Advisor that the cemetery is an historical one, last used in the 1930s I believe.

We had 2 rooms booked and can say as an ex-hotelier there was everything one would expect. The standards of cleanliness are high.

Very warm welcome from Susan and John at this lovely B&B. Perfect room at the top of the house, very clean with nice touches and a very good breakfast. Five minutes walk into the town or, in the other direction, onto the most stunning coastal walk.

This B&B is great value for money. While our room was located up 2 flights of narrow stairs, the room itself was very well appointed, with some nice extra touches, such as a fancy chocolate on the pillow, bottled water, and a biscuit jar. The shower was fantastic, with great water pressure, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was also...
