My partner and I stayed at the Lorna Doone during the early part of April after a recommendation from family. The B&B was very easy to find and parking was not a problem. However, if you have an older/not too powerful car (like mine!) I would strongly advise against arriving via Porlock Hill.
Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly by Neil, our host and chef, who showed us every kindness and attended us to our room. We were lucky to get a front, river facing room with a fantastic view over the East Lyn River. The room itself was very well appointed, featuring the usual facilities, such as television, hairdryer and kettle, as well as a well stocked tea tray! The room was immaculate in terms of decor and overall cleanliness.
As a taller person, I was gratified to learn that the bed was over 6ft long - and incredibly comfortable! The en-suite bathroom was larger than your average B&B en-suite, with the shower also being tall-person friendly.
We opted for an in-house evening meal on the first night of our arrival - a choice I strongly recommend to all guests as there isn't a great choice of restaurants in Lynmouth, but much more importantly Neil's cooking is immense. We enjoyed 2 evening meals while we stayed at the Lorna Doone, and both meals were incredible - a strong recommendation. During the evening meals and breakfast, we were served by Sharon who was very friendly and attentive.
I would strongly recommend the Lorna Doone as a B&B, and I imagine that we will be staying here again. Thank you, Neil and Sharon, as your warm hospitality and great food made for a fantastic weekend.
