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!

We had a room with a view of the river and a comfortable 4 poster bed. We opted for a dinner, bed and breakfast package as I am celiac and did not want to have to go hunting for gluten free dinners. I took my own cereal and bread and had excellent meals cooked by Neil, who seems to treat... More

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
