First time in Lynmouth but certainly not the last. Perfect location for a short break. We were more than happy to put the car away in Lorna Doone House parking lot and leave it there until we had to leave. Lots to see and do within short distances. Our accommodation at Lorna Doone House was perfect. Beautiful, river view room.... More

We were welcomed with a pot of tea and biscuits and that was a great start to our 2 lovely nights at Lorna Doone House. It is a picture perfect villa style house over looking the river in Lynmouth. Helpful hosts, taking other guests to the start of walks for them to walk back, offering directions / suggestions for our... More

My husband and I got back yesterday from a two night stay here. We stayed in a beautiful room with a four poster bed. The room was spotless. It had everything you could want. Tea and coffee facilities with complimentary box of fudge and bottle of mineral water. Beautiful soft white fluffy towels and beautiful bedding. A wonderful power shower... More

Very comfortable accommodation in such a pretty location overlooking the East Lyn river in Lynmouth. Beautiful Super King size bed - soft and cosy, with plenty of space in the bedroom, plus a large ensuite - no cramped conditions here! This is also the first B&B on this trip that we've found a MOST welcome top sheet on the bed... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and loved the room with ensuite. The B&B is right next to a river and found the sound of it very pleasant. The scenery can not be faulted and we found Lynmouth to be a very picturesque and lovely place. We enjoyed one of the local walks and this would be... More

We stayed just one night at the Lorna Doone and wished we had booked for longer. We received a warm welcome and pot of tea on arrival and we were very impressed with the decor and facilities in our room which had a lovely view of the river. We have visited Lynmouth many times over the last 40 years but... More

This was our second time staying at Lorna Doone House and its difficult to find superlatives to describe our experience except to state that, 'if Carlsberg did Guest Houses then this is how they would do it!' The welcome, hospitality and accommodation were all first class. Guests can also choose to have an evening meal at Lorna Doone which is... More

What a stunning location this is. Very friendly hosts and great food. Nothing too much trouble. Only complaint was the bed. Small and not too comfortable but it is personal taste. Parking handled well... You leave the car key with your host if you are out walking and he moves cars about so nobody is blocked in. Worked well.

After a long trip down to Devon we were welcomed at the door by our wonderful host with a brilliant smile and a perfect question, "Would you like a cup of tea?" What a wonderful way to start a holiday. The accommodation was top rate and the hosts so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was also excellent. Unfortunately the breakfast... More

My partner and I stayed at the Lorna Doone during the early part of April after a recommendation from family. The B&B was very easy to find and parking was not a problem. However, if you have an older/not too powerful car (like mine!) I would strongly advise against arriving via Porlock Hill. Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly... More
