Very well done on the award, my husband and I returned last Autumn for a short break, hosts Jane & Richard work so hard to make guests welcome, they are always available, always on hand with advice on walks, places to eat and attractions to visit. Sea views, sunsets, perfect location, delicious breakfast. Thoroughly recommended - very well done again.

Well done Richard & Jane on your award. We stayed at Shelley's last Autumn for the third time in 4 or 5 years and as usual thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As ever a friendly welcome awaits, they are always have time for their guests, just that little extra that you never get in managed and corporate hotels. Shelley's has a warm... More

Congratulations to Jane & Richard on winning a TripAdvisor award for another year. We stayed at Shelley's last summer and have off and on over the past 10 years. We've always thoroughly enjoyed the way Jane & Richard run Shelley's in a light, informal style and their generous hospitality. They're always round and about, always on hand to chat, to... More

'Shelleys ' - A timeless location and a very warm and friendly greeting. Rooms fantastic and very comfortable (home from home). A fantastic breakfast every day which really sets you up to walk the coast paths. Five star the best break you will have had in years.

We loved the traditional yet light, bright dining and guest lounge rooms. Delicious, freshly cooked and generous breakfasts. Friendly, helpful hosts. The balcony & conservatory to our room overlooking the sea. The relaxed and 'at home' ambience yet a professional and quick service when waiting on the tables, the printouts of maps and info for places to go, tailored to... More

We were in need a few days away from it all. We stayed at Shelley's last year and had such a relaxing stay we thought we'd return. Jane & Richard welcomed us taking our cases up to our room. The room was as before spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, and had lovely sea views looking out over Lynmouth Bay... More

Shelley's is perfect for an October break, Jane & Richard are excellent hosts, welcoming and friendly. Our room was lovely with fantastic sea views out over Lynmouth Bay. Shelley's is located in the centre of the village just up from the harbour close to all the shops, pubs and restaurants, We had a great time and will be back,
