The hosts of the Lorna Doone were very kind and welcoming. They had thought of everything to make their guests comfortable, even to the extent of buying peas to sooth the swelling on my partners twisted ankle. The accommodation was lovely and the choice and quality of the breakfast was fabulous! The setting of the house was magical, right next... More

As always a perfect holiday -good food, comfortable surroundings, a home from home. A brilliant spot to take it easy or walk your legs off… Lovely room with comfortable bed and great view of river. Beautiful setting in the valley surrounded by green hills. Great walks in Exmoor and the sea as well. We'll be back.

We booked three nights B&B with dinner on the first night. Neil and Sharon are very welcoming hosts and our room (No 8) was spacious, clean and well appointed. Food was delicious - the breakfasts in particular were great and set us up well for a couple of days of good walking. Dinner was also very good value. The house... More

We booked this lovely B&B on the internet and made it our home for three nights during our trip to Devon and Cornwall. The house is located right next to the river and very close to the centre of the town of Lynmouth. Our room, No. 9 I think it was, overlooking the river was spotlessly clean with a very... More

Although this was our fourth visit to Lynmouth where we like to go to unwind and recharge the batteries, this was our very first visit to Lorna Doone House but certainly won't be our last. We honestly cannot fault this guest house, where the hosts (Sharon & Neil) go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a pleasant and... More

We have just made our second visit to the Lorna Doone. We have made numerous visits to Lynmouth over forty plus years and this is definitely the best B&B in the area. The food is outstanding and the rooms are lovely.

The owners were very welcoming from the outset, I booked on the phone and instantly knew I could look forward to some fantastic hospitality. Upon arrival we were made to feel very welcome and offered some well needed refreshments. We stayed in room 3 which had a glorious view of the river but most importantly it was extremely spacious!
