We visited Lynton for a couple of days during the early summer (end of July) and stayed at the Castle Hill Guest House as we knew it. We had forgotten just how much space you get! Not only are the bedrooms generous, but we also had our own lounge area. This was brilliant after a day out and about. The... More

Honestly can't fault this charming guest house. From the moment we arrived (an hour before check in) we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Alastair and Emma are the perfect hosts, informative, attentive and interested but without being too overwhelming. Our room was decorated to a high standard, cleaned daily and included lots of very unique personal touches... More

Stayed for 4 nights at this B & B and found it to be one of the best I've stayed at. Alistair & Emma are attentive & friendly hosts who keep a very clean & comfortable Guest house. Castle Hill is very well situated for exploring the delights that this part of Devon offers. Lynton itself is full of lovely... More

Just back from a delightful four night stay at Castle Hill where Emma and Alistair made us feel very much at home. The b & b is in an excellent location with shops, restaurants, cafes etc close at hand but also with amazing scenery and walks right on the doorstep too. Comfortable beds, really nice "lotions" in the bathroom in... More

The owners of this lovely guest house have really thought about all your needs. Emma and Alistair are so very friendly and welcoming they are the perfect hosts of a guest house, nothing is too much trouble. The lounge is large with a big selection of DVD's and books. The breakfast room is light and bright and the breakfast itself... More

The warm welcome we received from Alistair immediately put us at ease, we knew we were going to have a very nice couple of nights. The whole feel is welcoming, the jelly babies in the entrance hall a big hit, the lounge area arranged in modern but relaxed style with beautiful fish tank and 100's of dvd's - just in... More

We were made very welcome, enjoyed relaxing in the lounge with a bottle of wine, which we had purchased and this was not a problem, Alastair and emma informed us that we could... More

Castle Hill Guest House is absolutely perfect. It is based beautifully at the top of Lynton. We enjoyed the fact it was so close to so many amazing places – Valley of the Rocks, Watersmeet and the Lynmouth Cliff Railroad to name a few. The room we were in had a view to die for! It was so relaxing and... More
