“A lovely B&B”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

This was our second visit to Jay Cottage. We stayed last year after we had just got engaged on Lynmouth beach! Once again we had a lovely weekend. Debra and Gary are very friendly and hospitable, the room was great with a spacious bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and the dining room is beautifully presented. The cottage is a few minutes walk from a nice country pub with excellent service, and you can easily walk into Lynton. Gary showed us around their newly converted self catering accommodation and we hope to stay there in the future!

My wife and I have just returned from a weekend break, and stayed in Jay Cottage. The cottage is beautiful and rustic, our room with its four poster bed was of a decent size considering we were in a cottage and a large en suite.
The room was clean and well presented and the couple who own and run this delightful B&B are very engaging and friendly. The breakfast was lovely and overall we had a great time. Having read the one negative review I can only assume they did not now the difference between a 100+ year old B&B and a modern hotel or they were confused and staying in a different B&B! Don't miss this Gem.

We stayed at Jay Cottage for a weekend break. We were made to feel very welcome, the room was lovely and breakfast was superb. Set us up for a full days walk and a great place to come back to and relax! Well worth a visit.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from an enjoyable stay at Jay Cottage. Located on the edge of Exmoor National Park, we visited hoping to find relaxing settings and a base from which we could do some walking and visit some of the local attractions such as the Valley of the Rocks. We were greeted by the friendly couple who own the cottage, who welcomed us in and helped us to carry our bags to the room which was spacious and immaculately clean. The bathroom is a good size, with bath and shower. There was plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower… perfect after a day walking, or an evening at the pub come to that. The room also had facilities for making hot drinks. Although we didn’t use it, there was a living room downstairs which was nice and warm which we were invited to use if we wanted to do so. The breakfasts, which are cooked to order, are fantastic! The owners were extremely knowledgeable about the local area, and were able to advise on walks, attractions and where to (and perhaps more importantly not to) eat – ideal when you’re new to an area. We would particularly recommend the Blue Ball for food or an evening drink… a fantastic pub a few miles away. In summary, Jay Cottage was everything we wanted. A comfortable temperature, nice clean room, good location and friendly and helpful owners… I’d have no hesitation in recommending it and will definitely be going back!

This is the second time we have stayed here in this B&B and found it lovely. The couple, Debra and Gary are extremely friendly, helpful and obliging. They catered for our needs without complaint and this included a very early breakfast on the Saturday. The rooms are lovely and there is obviously a lot of thought gone into decoration etc. I would highly recommend.

This is a lovely little B&B. The rooms were immaculate and well decorated and the breakfasts were fantastic - cooked to order and including home made jams! The owners were friendly, had a wealth of local knowledge and were always happy to help. A great little spot to get away from it all!

The owners were very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean with good facilities. Breakfast was incredible with every taste catered for, I can highly recommend the homemade jams. Great location with numerous walks on the door step and just off the South West Coastal Path. In all a comfortable and relaxing stay I would recommend.
