From the moment we arrived, our hosts were attentive, and helpful. We were shown our room, which was delightful, and then offered tea and biscuits in the lounge. The hotel is only a stones throw from the town, and harbour, walking beside the river. Breakfast is plentiful, cooked to order, and very good, with copious amounts of tea, coffee, and... More

My partner and I spent one night on our way through to Woolacombe for a weekend of camping and surfing. We received a very friendly welcome by Sharon, who couldn't do enough for us. The off road car park was very useful as the car was left fully loaded overnight. The room was comfy and cosy with a lovely view... More

We spent 3 nights at this lovely guest house in Lynmouth. The room we stayed in was warm, clean, comfortable and well equipped and we had a fantastic view of the river. Our two teenagers had the room next door to us and they loved the fact the room had a tv/dvd player. The owners were extremely friendly and very... More

Sharon and Neil run an efficient and friendly establishment. Arriving happy but a bit weary after completing the 100-mile Two Moors walk (which starts/finishes in Lynmouth), Sharon sat us down on their outside seating overlooking the River Lyn and brought tea and biscuits before showing us to a clean and well-equipped room with spacious bathroom. It is clear that some... More

Just spent 2 nights this very lovely guest house. The hosts Neil and Sharon were welcoming and friendly. Neil is a great chef, we had a lovely meal on both evenings, the steak on the first night was yummy!

A wonderful place to stop…we've been coming for over 20 years. Stayed for a week. Superb food as always. Comfortable rooms with the sound of the river which is right outside. Sit on the veranda with a welcome pint after a long walk in stunning countryside. Park the car in their car-park and walk all week around the area. Close... More

Thoroughly recommend this lovely B & B sat by the river in Lynmouth. So welcoming, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely choose to stay here again. The village was just a very short walk away and is a lovely place to visit. Book your restaurant early though as they get booked up pretty quickly at weekends!
