South View Guest House
Ranked #10 of 23 Lynton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 31, 2011

Read the reviews on trip advisor before booking, wasn't disappointed.
It was a great B&B with fresh milk for drinks and choccies for late night nibbling.
We were greeted with tea and coffee when we arrived . The owner was very welcoming and answered any queries we had. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our 2 night stay.
The scenery in the area is spectacular and both Lynton and Lynmouth are worth visiting.

Room Tip: Rose room was good

I stayed with Maureen and Rob for 3 nights and being on business, was spending everyday at boring workshops and meetings. Thank goodness I had Southview to go home to in the evening! Not to mention the amazing hearty breakfast to set me up for the day.
The room I stayed in was very cozy and had all the essentials- plus some nice extras like fresh milk in the rooms. The shower was great to start the day and sleeping in the lovely bed meant I had a great nights sleep too.
The whole house is very nicely decorated- someone seems to have a flair for interior design!
The whole house is really clean and Maureen and Rob really made me feel like they were sharing their home with me.
I have to say my favourite part of the whole trip was my homemade muesli followed by full english every morning delivered to me by Rob who, no matter how early was always cheerful. :-)

We stayed with Maureen and Rob in April for 2 nights. They are really the most accomodating and freindly people you will ever meet. The house is lovely and very cozy. As for the breakfast i think Mo and Rob could win Master Chef with thier breakfasts!. Local produce, plenty of it and great hosting, Attention to detail through out , we will definatley visit again with our children. Ideally located for a great weekend or longer visit to Exmoor!... Fabulous!

A beautiful area to visit. We were welcomed into South View guest house and immediately felt at home. The rooms were lovely, and the lounge area was equally gorgeous!! All those small touches (such as fresh milk for the rooms, lovely products in the bathrooms etc) really make a place extra special.
Breakfast was excellent.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

South View always offers the most relaxing, comfortable stay in Lynton. Maureen and Rob give such warm welcome and make their home feel like yours. The decoration in the rooms is lovely and light and the attention to detail is always excellent. The breakfast will set you up for the day with a great variety of fresh local ingredients. The location is also perfect for a short walk to all the local sights. We look forward to any chance we get to visit South View.
