After a dreary, rainy drive to Lynton, we were warmly greeted by hosts John and Susan. The facility is full of charm and provided the rest and quiet that we needed after a difficult journey. John was extremely helpful in offering advise about local things to do and see. The short walk to the Valley of Rocks from The Denes... More

This was a great place to stay. Very friendly and welcoming, we arrived and tea and coffee offered, and cake as well, very tasty. We found the rooms very clean and tidy, with tea and coffee in room and some biscuits as well. Easy walking to Valley of the Rocks, which is a beautiful coastal walk. Would happily stay again....

staying at The Denes was our best B & B experience during a five week tour of the UK. John and Susan went out of their way to be hospitable and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable.

We spent two nights at the Denes and found it to be very comfortable. Parking looked like a bit of a nightmare as another guest had hogged most of the car park space but there was plenty of free on-street parking, so no dramas there. As it was walking distance to the town, once we had parked up for the... More

The Denes is perfect with fantastic hosts John and Susan. The location is great as its 5mins from valley of the rocks and other walks if that's your thing with restaurants and pubs in the other direction. Rooms are spotless, breakfast fantastic as nothing is a problem for them. We will be back. Thank you for having us. Martin and... More

Having stayed in The Denes twice it is certainly among the best B&Bs we've used. Touches likes loads of towels, toiletries and even a chocolate on the pillow add to the friendly atmosphere and an excellent breakfast with a huge choice. Excellent room and comfortable bed.

This is a friendly and welcoming B&B with very nice hosts. As soon as I arrived I was offered tea and cake. My room was very comfortable and surprisingly large. Everything was immaculately clean.

Wow - little touches that made you feel welcome. We were in the newly refurbished room 2, which was bright and spacious with plenty of room for an additional bed for our daughter. Breakfast was excellent, and plenty of choices. We will return!

Excellent B&B, situated in a perfect location to explore the best that North Devon has to offer. John and Susan did everything they possibly could to ensure that our visit was comfortable and welcoming - the breakfasts were excellent, the rooms were well appointed and spotlessly clean, overall I have to say that we couldn't have asked for more.
