A lovely quiet spot next to the river only a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Clean, friendly and a great breakfast. Room was beautifully presented and very comfortable. Stayed here for 2 night with my husband for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here one night after walking the Two Moors Way and really enjoyed our brief stay. Loran Doone House is a short walk from the harbour, at the side of the river. We had a very nice room at the front of the property, looking out over the river. We had a nice en suite bathroom. There is a... More

What a wonderful B&B...... the best in town as far as I'm concerned. From the minute we arrived we felt it was home from home. As far as the room was concerned it was wonderful, spacious and immaculate. Nothing is too much trouble for our hosts. The full English breakfast is by far the best ever, not a sign of... More

My husband and I stayed at Lorna Doone House a few years ago, and we were really eager to stay again for the last night of our 14 night tour Along The Coleridge Way.

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.

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.
