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,

I have been using tripadvisor for many years as a reliable source of booking holidays, hotels and restaurants. I have found the reviews to be quite accurate and useful but have only now decided to be a reviewer myself. This is based upon my own perception of Shelley's at Lynmouth. I am somewhat confused at the continual large number of... More

We were looking to grab a late availability last minute short break before the weather turned and winter sets in. We'd stayed at Shelley's for the first time earler this year; we'd had such a good time, we thought why not return and see Exmoor in it's Autumn colours. Shelley's never disappoints, Jane & Richard are great hosts, breakfasts are... More

What a find, Shelley's is a lovely small bed & breakfast hotel right in the centre of the harbour village of Lynmouth, and makes an ideal base from which to explore Lynmouth & Lynmouth and Exmoor National Park. Jane & Richard are friendly, welcoming and informative proprietors, nothing is too much trouble with always a minute to chat with you,... More

We stayed at the beginning of October, Jane & Richard are excellent hosts. Shelley's is in an ideal location near the harbour, restaurants and seafront. Fantastic breakfasts, welcoming hosts, bright, light spotlessly clean sea view bedroom, what more could you ask for. As I said a really great place for a short break away from it all. Thoroughly recommended

We enjoyed a 4 night late September Autumn break which was made even better with the glorious Indian Summer we enjoyed during our stay at Shelley's in Lynmouth. Shelley's is right in the heart of the village and has a fantastic aspect with spectacular sea views looking out across Lynmouth Bay; hosts Jane & Richard have created a warm, friendly... More

This was our first stay in Lynmouth and we chose Shelleys based upon other peoples reviews. We really enjoyed it! The hotel occupies a great position with lovely views and we were made to feel very welcome from the moment that we arrived. We stayed in a Balcony Room which was extremely comfortable and the Lounge was a lovely spot... More
