We have just made our second visit to the Lorna Doone. We have made numerous visits to Lynmouth over forty plus years and this is definitely the best B&B in the area. The food is outstanding and the rooms are lovely.

The owners were very welcoming from the outset, I booked on the phone and instantly knew I could look forward to some fantastic hospitality. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome and offered some well needed refreshments. We stayed in room 3 which had a glorious view of the river but most importantly it was extremely spacious!

We booked a three night stay at Lorna Doone House having read the reviews here on Trip Advisor, we were not disappointed. Set in a lovely peaceful location (if you like the sound of running water) just on the outskirts of the village centre overlooking the East Lyn River. There is on site parking which is a bonus, the village... More

Decided to have a long weekend away for our wedding anniversary. Thought we would return to Lynmouth after many years. Picked Lorna Doone House from after reading reviews on Trip Adviser. We were not disappointed. We were made very welcome from the first minute by Neil. Had a lovey four poster bed, room 4, which overlooked the river. Room with... More

We don't often stay at guesthouses being seasoned caravaners. Whenever we do we always find ourselves feeling disappointed and wishing we'd taken the caravan instead. Not so this time - what a fantastic find. Wonderful welcome. Lovely room. Excellent hosts. Can't recommend it highly enough.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in March. On arrival we were impressed not only with the greeting from Sharon but also with the location, the room and the facilities. It didn´t just meet our expectations but exceeded them. There was absolutely nothing we could fault about the entire stay. Breakfast was almost more than we could... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that Lynmouth worked its magic and you had a relaxing stay. Thanks also for the lovely comments about Neil's food. He works hard in the kitchen to make sure that everything goes out just right and it is always nice when people comment on how much they have enjoyed our meals. More
