From the warm welcome and a much needed cup of tea after a long journey to the lovely bedroom, with the breathtaking views. Everything spotlessly clean. Breakfast delicious especially the strawberries from the garden. Unfortunately only stayed one night as we visited for a family funeral, but we will definitely be back for a longer break in this wonderful b&b.... More

A wonderful location with rooms overlooking the panoramic views of the sea. Easy to find and very relaxing from the minute you step over the front door. Joanne and Jem go out of their way to make you feel so special and nothing is too much trouble, Good breakfast menu with lots of choice and excellently cooked by Joanne to... More

We stayed here for two nights as a weekend break. Joanne and Jem couldn't have been any more helpful or friendly; nothing was too much trouble, from lending us walking books to helping me rinse off my wet suit. Would definitely come again.

The hosts of this quite lovely B&B are Joanne & Jem... Quite frankly, they are Gems!!!!! My Mother and I visited here and found that the hosts were both very pleasant and informative of the area with a mixture of humour to boot! I couldn't believe how you immediately felt at ease with this lovely B& B! It is probably... More

My husband and I stopped at this B and B en route to Cornwall. What a place! Our twin room was spotless with amazing views of the ocean from our room, the gardens and the breakfast room. The guest bathroom is shared between the two rooms, in a wing of their own. The bathroom is large, with a shower and... More

We traveled to Northam as we wanted to see the place where our ancestor, William Blackmore (b.1602) had lived before sailing to America. I live in Leesburg, Virginia. We were unprepared for the beauty of the place and could not have been more pleased with the hospitality, accommodations and delicious breakfast at Lydshaw. My son and his wife had one... More

Lydshaw is a small bed and breakfast located in North Devon on the outskirts of Northam, between Bideford and Appledore. The b+b comes with the benefit of amazing panoramic views of the coast out towards Lundy Island. It would be a 10-15 minute walk into Northam for pubs and the locally famous Memories restaurant. I arrived at night by Taxi... More

Lydshaw certainly delivers on all fronts. The welcome is warm and friendly and the rooms are so well equipped with generous tea making facilities and biscuits. Each guest gets a pile of towels with products available in the bathroom. The view is as sensational as the breakfast. We got fresh pate with a selection of breads, preserves, cereals, fresh fruit...
