Carol and Ray run a good B and B which is centrally located in Lynmouth. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfasts very good with generous portions and nothing was too much trouble, Ray dropped my friend and our luggage to the next B and B we were using as my walking buddy was unable to walk that particular...

We stayed at this B&B back in 2003, and returned here once more. It is a basic B&B, though well-maintained and comfortable. The room was fairly tightly packed, and if I was a very large person I think I'd have problems in the bathroom as it fitted a lot into a small space, including a semi-circular shower. We couldn't get... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid-September, having booked it due to the reviews on TA. The reviews seemed too good to be true, but I can assure you they ARE true. Comfortable room, with all you need in a B & B (en-suite, tea/coffee/biscuits, fresh milk!, hairdryer, toiletries, TV, very clean) and a great view of the River Lyn... More

Clean and tidy B&B we used on South West Coast Path. Very Friendly. Good Breakfast to start the next days walk. Easy to walk to the pub for dinner and took our card rather than a cheque. Happy to recommend.

What a difference friendly hospitality makes to the enjoyment of your stay in a B&B! That is exactly what Carol & Ray the lovely owners at River Lyn View provide, along with spotlessly clean accommodation, absolutely superb breakfasts and attention to every detail that enhances the comfort of your stay. With a beautiful view over the river Lyn and a... More

We stayed the night at this lovely B+B. as last time everything was lovely - friendly hosts, scrupulously clean room and amazing breakfast. The location is lovely, just a couple of minuts stroll to the centre of the village and beside the river. lWould definitely recommend.

From the moment we arrived, we couldn't fault our weeks stay here. Absolutely superb B and B. So comfortable and spotlessly clean! Fab tea facilities in room. Carol and Ray go out of their way to make your stay a superb one. So warm and friendly, couldn't do enough for us. They welcomed our dog Trinny with open arms, letting... More

We were very pleased with our stay here. The room was small but adequate and had everything one would need while away from home. The owners are certainly friendly and pleasant and do their most to make your relaxing without being too intrusive. The breakfast is a no-frills fry up that is very filling and tasty, we were walking 13-miles... More

Like many other reviewers, I found it very difficult to find any fault with River Lyn View. The room was exactly what we required and very comfortable. The usual tea/coffee facilities were enhanced by the addition of several varieties of biscuits, cocoa and fresh milk. The owners could not be more welcoming and the breakfast was excellent, our dog also... More
