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,

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.
