“We'll be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

The Riverside is a lovely B&B, set right by the river and most room overlooking the sea as well. We stayed in room 5. The room was comfortable and clean and extra pillows were provided without asking. Can't say that there was too much noise through the night other than listening to the beautiful river flow outside. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of cereals, toast, juices, tea or coffee and a fantastic 'full english'. The owners seemed very nice altough we didn't see much of them. Lynton and Lynmouth are beautiful places to visit and my only complaint was that we had only booked one night.
Would most definitely stay here again.

Have just returned from a wonderful weekend staying at Riverside Cottages. Well what can I say, this place is lovely, spotlessly clean, so welcoming and they do a fantastic breakfast. The owners Sue and Richard not only made myself and my husband feel welcome but also our dog, offering extra towels to dry him off if need and providing him with his regular morning sausage for breakfast. The local pub “The Village Inn” is also very dog friendly with the landlord dishing out treats to all of the dogs in there. At one point he did a count and there were 14 dogs, all well-behaved either sitting or lying on the floor next to their owners. This is a great resort of you have a dog as the walks are wonderful and you are always made to feel welcome in shops/cafes/bars etc. We will definitely be returning 

Have stayed at Riverside four times now and once again had a wonderful weekend. Lovely room with plenty of space and fantastic views from the balcony. Friendly welcoming owners who cook a wonderful breakfast and keep the place spotlessly clean.
Brought sister, her husband and my father with me this time booking three rooms and have already booked for next year - four rooms this time for my children to come too! Lynmouth can't be faulted as an old fashioned fishing village that feels like a million miles away from city life and when we come here I would never stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony and sea view - its worth the extra few pounds!

I stayed here for a couple of nights with a friend to get away from the city and our kids !!. We shared a twin bedded room with a balcony overlooking the river and sea. It was great to wake up in the morning with the sound of the river rushing past and the sun shining on the sea. We bought a bottle of wine to share later on the balcony and left it on the dressing table to come back and find the owners had produced two wine glasses without asking, little things like this show how thoughtful the owners are. The room was bright and really clean. The breakfast is really good and the owners very welcoming.
We enjoyed walking by the river and up the steep hill to Lynton. The pub on the front does a fantastic beer battered fish and chips (expensive but well worth it} but avoid the cafe next to the Riverside on the left as you come out the front door, I don't know what was in their vege 'cornish' pasty but it was nasty mush and was more frozen fare than nice home baked. Would highly recommend this lovely B&B for a short stay away from it all !!
