We stayed in Rockvale for one night and had a family room. It was very nicely decorated in a seaside theme which my daughter loved. We also had a great view of the town from our room. We had a warm greeting and were looked after very well during our stay. There was a great selection for breakfast and both... More

Perfect three days in this beautiful place. I didn't expected hens and books they were a good surprise! The room was clean, has a fab view. It is close to everything, but very calm. Friendly hosts with good advices about the surroundings. Lovely lounge with chess board. For me it was a perfect relaxing, I am sure that it wasn't... More

The location is perfect for being in the center of Lynton and very close to the Cliff Railway. The level parking is atop of a steep driveway, the B&B offers great views from most of the rooms as well as a nice front patio area with outdoor furniture to take in the beautiful surrounding hills. The breakfast is as good... More

We had a really lovely stay at this B and B. It is ideally located (and has parking) very close to the Cliff Railway and Valley of the Rocks, as well as near restaurants in Lynton. The room was very clean and had a fabulous private bathroom. The breakfasts were plentiful and there was a wide choice! Heather and Alwyn... More

It was a nice room for a family, with a beautiful view over the hills. There was a lovely breakfast, and with many choices available. Many walking routes nearby, where you got to experience some of the hills. Very friendly hosts.

We've just come back from an excellent stay at Rockvale. Everything just spot on, clean, excellent food from a very wide menu for breakfast and a sensibly priced evening meal menu, served in style. Rockvale has got the widest range of bottled real ales I've come across in a guest house, and joy of joys, at room temperature! The other... More

A quintessentially traditional British B&B with fabulous views over Lynton. Run by sisters Heather and Alwyn, you couldn't hope to find two more kind, considerate and amenable hosts. They were particularly accommodating for our 7 month old daughter, sorting out special breakfasts and rescuing the babysitting grandparents when there was no phone reception in the restaurant when we were out...

8 of us stayed in Lynton whilst walking the North Devon coastal path and the guest house is located at the top of a steep drive about 100m long. Rooms are very clean and there is a very good choice of breakfast as well as a large guest lounge with large windows to take in the view across Lynton itself... More

So, I'm back in the UK, this time solo, and heading for Exmoor. Should I stay in Lynton? I knew nothing about it but thought that I'd give it a try. I'm sooooo glad I did. This place is fantastic with coastal views to rival anywhere in the world and great walks straight from town. I also made the right... More
