4th year running we have spent a couple of nights here. It is a lovely b&b in a great position with a lovely view across the river and down to the sea. Last year we stayed in a room at the back but it is definitely worth paying extra for a balcony. The room (5) was clean and comfortable with... More

The room is clean,comfortable and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was very good. We will be returning... More

My wife and I really needed a night away, so we chose Lynmouth due to it being only a couple of hours away from us in wiltshire. We found riverside cottage online and it's price and location were just what we were looking for. We arrived on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was very busy and parking was a problem,... More

Stayed for 3 nights and what can I say other than we chose well. The room was immaculate and came with a balcony with superb views of the sea and Lynmouth as a whole. The cooked breakfast provided every morning was excellent, and more than enough to set us up for the day, and to top it all, Debbie the... More

We spent one night there and paid £70. For this price it was ok, but if I came back I would rather check on other hotels/B&Bs. The welcome was friendly, but very hectical. The room was tiny with the shower in the toilet and the sink in the room. The king size bed was very small for two people. Breakfast... More

Unlike sc0rpi063 we found the experience of staying ar Riverside Cottage very good and certainly comfortable an=d friendly. When we arrived we found that the booking agents had not passed on our requests for a twin bedded room, two extra pillows and no duvets. Not a problem to Debbie who sorted everything out with great cheerfulness. She apparently runs the... More

The room had a balcony and king size bed as advertised and the view over the river was pretty , but be ware... More

The outstanding thing about the guesthouse is its riverside position - we had a balcony overlooking the river and harbour, which was lovely, especially when the sun came up over the sea in the early morning. Also our landlady was lovely - very cheerful and welcoming. The rooms were clean and tidy, the bed comfy, and the shower was very... More

I am very sorry that the sausage wasn't to your taste but I can assure you that they are handmade pork sausages bought from a local butcher, we do not by any cheap produce in this business and take great pride in producing good home made food for the B&B and our cafe. Debbie More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, and have achieved the highest rating from the Food Standards Agency. We have seven rooms, six with sea views and private balconies. Each balcony is complete with chairs and the large rooms also have a small table to allow you to sit and watch the world go by. Our restaurant is open between 10.00am and 5.00pm serving excellent freshly-made food, locally sourced and prepared by our in-house chef. Riverside Cottage is a perfect base for walking, cycling, fishing (River Lyn, harbour, beach or boat), and riding, pony trekking or just as a centre for North Devon touring. Alternately just relax on your balcony with a drink and admire the views (selected rooms only). ... more   less
