A great B and B with friendly hosts, beautiful views and possibly the best "full English" breakfast we've ever had. We came to Lynton to attend a wedding and spent a lovely couple of nights in this guest house. It is "old fashioned" in the nicest sense of the phrase with decor and furniture appropriate to its Victorian architecture. We... More

If you want a room with a view you usually need to go uphill. Devon roads are known for their steep gradient and getting to Chough Nest up a very steep, narrow road was not easy. It was, however, worth it. The hotel building is beautiful and parking is free. We had a room with a sea view on the... More

Made to feel so very welcome by the owners. Chough's Nest is a beautifully maintained cliff top hotel with vast panoramic views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. The place is immaculate with beautifully furnished bedrooms and white linen breakfast tables with full English breakfasts (while enjoying the view). What more could one ask for? The hotel is on the... More

Lovely homely and comfortable hotel, right next to the path to the Valley of the Rocks. Wonderful and most peaceful views from bedroom window. We stayed in room 1 which had a very comfortable bed and a great bathroom with good bath and shower. Beautifully cooked breakfast by the owner who couldn't have been more accommodating. We will stay here... More

We stayed here at the end of walking the Two Moors Way. The reception area is rather old fashioned and I was a little worried about what our room would be like. However, I shouldn't have worried. Our room was large and spacious with room for a sofa to relax on and a generous sized bathroom with bath and shower... More

Small hotel run by a lovely couple and their family. Very good room comfy bed and fabulous views. Breakfast was cooked to order much better than hotel buffet style. Will certainly visit again as the area is fantastic for chilling and walking.
