The location is just fabulous, the accomodation itself fine for the price. Room - very small, but adequate Bathroom - I was not aware that I had booked a room with a shared bathroom and general use toilet, probably my fault as very last minute booking for business trip. The bathroom was poorly lit an even inappropriate for shaving Breakfast... More

We had a relaxing, peaceful break in this beautiful B&B in Lynmouth. Lovely couple that own this very clean and colourful Victorian style B&B, they were very informative and friendly. Easy parking in a beautiful area. The garden in so colourful and full of flowers and a lovely place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and the view... More

The owner was most welcoming. The house was rather dark, due to the dark wood decor. The room wasn't very big, and neither was the breakfast. We weren't aware that there were cereals to be had. So just had " the full English". It was ok but not enough for my liking.There was however some toast. On the last morning... More

The room was very welcoming and spacious. The owners,Josie and Clifford are a lovely couple, Clifford has a wealth of information on the area and is always on hand to... More

We booked a two-night break. On arrival the owner was very friendly and helpful, gave us tips on where to eat and where to go while we were there, with a good local knowledge of the various walks. We had the balcony room, which was of a good size and clean. Although the décor may not be to everyone taste,... More

Ok "delux" room was tiny..We had paid the extra money so that we would enjoy a little extra.One wonders how small the basic room was.It was clean, but one could hardly call it spacious..The other gripe was the parking sign clearly signposted on front of the building.This is clearly misleading as in fact there isn't any.

After a long drive through Cornwall from a long camping trip, we were pretty exhausted upon arrival. The Captain's House was fairly easy to find but we couldn't see any parking nearby on the single lane road it was situated on so we turned around and parked near the harbour (£5 for 24 hours was very reasonable) then walked through...

We stayed two nights. The room was small however it was very clean and for the price we paid it was excellent value. The owner was very helpful, recommending sites to see and places to go. He got us a map of the local area and planned the day for us with where to go. We stopped off at all... More

This colourful, spotless, cheery little gem in a beautiful setting offers extremely good value for money. Perhaps the breakfast is basic but more than enough, especially considering how affordable it is to stay here. The host is full of local knowledge and is more than happy to share with you. Will most certainly be staying again.

After a day off wondering what to do, we decided to take a short trip to our favourite place Lynmouth. On checking for a room we found one here. On check in we were greeted by a very nice host. He took us to our room whilst telling us about the history of the house. The room decor was slightly... More
