A traditional family run hotel with 'old fashioned' values and service. Lovely location, peaceful and quiet with superb views. Fabulous food, nice friendly owners, very clean, comfortable and good value - what's not to like!

Situated right on the coast path with lovely sea views and views of Lynmouth and the coast. A lovely superior room with plenty of space. The hosts were very welcoming and attentive and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended, especially if you are walking the South West Coast Path, as you are right on it with level walking to the... More

Our room was very comfortable with a lovely sea view across the Severn to Wales. The food was good and there was a reasonable selection of wines available. The breakfast was excellent and summed up perfectly a "full English". For us personally we found our mattress was too soft and also the Dinner timings and arrangements slightly over formal with...

We used Chough's Nest as a base for several nights while walking in Exmoor. We were very happy with it: our room was clean, nicely decorated, and had a splendid view; and the bathroom was modern with an excellent shower. Breakfast was great and the hosts were welcoming and helpful in giving advice about walking routes.

This hotel is a lovely place to stay, but is a bit tricky to get to by car as most of the road is very narrow indeed. It is worth it though and the greeting from John and Rose was very welcoming and they work tirelessly to make your stay a memorable one. We had a second floor room and... More

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
