Our first return since East Lyn House changed hands.
Our verdict - excellent. Great to meet the new owners, Paul and Sally ( not forgetting Daphne) and found that they are warm, welcoming and very hospitable.
Definitely worth staying if you are in the area as you will be made very welcome - we will be back in the near future!

Room Tip: The views from room 5 are great and leaving the window which faces the door slightly open allows you...

Stayed here at the end of August. Found Paul and Sally very welcoming. Best breakfast ever.
Wonderful location. Our room was up two flights of stairs but well worth the climb.Room was
beautifully presented. Would definately stay here again, if in the area. Parking was an
absolute bonus. More than highly recommended. Thank you Paul and Sally.

Location is stunning, something new to explore every day. Paul and sally were friendly and accommodating and intuitive to guests needs I.e those who need privacy or those who enjoyed company. Rooms are ever so clean, well decorated & nicely furnished.
Sound of the stream outside was calming to go off to sleep by. Full English breakfast is the best we've had in a long time.
Also en suite shower room & W.C were separate. Nice touch!

minus-we could not stay longer, we will return.

Room Tip: Stay in 1 room per night as every one is as lovely as the next!!!!(sorry best if not impractical adv...

Very nice to be welcomed with tea on the patio almost hanging over the river - room was clean & well decorated (just a shame that matress was a very hard memory foam & there was no shower gell or shampoo provided in lovely en suite) We had fabulous views from both our windows - upstream & downstream to sea.Lovely breakfast with suberb home made bread & real bonus of secure garage parking.

Room Tip: Room 1 has super dual aspect views

Arrived after a tiring long drive, so was so nice to have such a lovely warm welcome from both Paul and Sally, who provided a much needed pot of coffee. We had a very comfortable, light and airy room (number 5) which had dual aspect windows overlooking the river lye from watersmeet.
After a good nights sleep we enjoyed a superb cooked breakfast, which I defy anyone to find anything better. Can't wait to stay with Paul and Sally again- wonderful hosts.

Lovely stay in the East Lyn. Sally and Paul were very hospitable and welcoming. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated; breakfast generous and nice.

Rooms overlooking the river, pretty view. Peaceful. Tea and drinks on the patio. Ample parking. 5 minutes into Lynmouth with touristy shops, 5 minute drive or cliff railway to Lynton for more shopping. Lovely walk (steep in parts) to Watersmeet.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room at the top facing river was lovely with the river gurgling the background and great views.
