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

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

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
