I can only add to the previous comments. Fabulous place. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and relaxing. The weather was not good and we were so happy to return each day to the comfort of The Fernery. Everything is of top quality. The breakfast is superb and carries you through the whole day. I enjoyed too,Jo's sense of humour and friendliness. Lovely lady who puts 100% into making sure you are looked after. I look forward to my next visit to Lynton and The Fernery. Cannot recommend it enough. Go and see for yourself. You will be delighted.

We stayed four nights at The Fernery and were very pleased with our choice. The room was very well done out, quiet and very clean. The room also had a comfortable bed and an excellent bathroom. We were welcomed with tea and freshly made cakes on our arrival. Jo, the owner, cooked a wonderful breakfast and was happy to accommodate our preference for porridge made with soya milk. The advice on restaurants for the evening was accurate and helpful. We would be happy to recommend the Fernery to friends and hope to be able to return ourselves.

Beautiful BnB hidden in a wonderful little village. Jo was welcoming and attentive throughout our short stay. The rooms are immaculate and lovely. Tucked away in a quiet street but only a minutes walk away from the restaurants and a few minutes walk away from various activities. Will definitely be returning for a longer stay in this gorgeous place and this gem off a BnB. Couldn't recommend this place more.

My girlfriend and I spent the bank holiday weekend at the The Fernery and absolutely loved the place. Jo (the owner) was a delight and the breakfast in the morning was just what we both needed. Nothing but great things to say about the place. I have already recommended the Fernery to my family and colleagues.

Thank you for a great weekend.

This place is a hidden gem! My fiance and I stayed here for two nights and it was absolutely lovely from start to end. Wonderful location with lots of nice restaurants less that a minutes walk away. All furnishings, linen and breakfast was of the best quality. I could not fault this place at all. The landlady Jo takes every care to make your stay as comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable as possible. There is something about this place that sits it above many other b&bs I have been to. Attention to detail and lovely quality, we were not disappointed, Highly recommended!

Changing our travelling plans on route, we decided to spend a day in Exmoor. Other tourists we met during our holiday had just come from there and they warmly recommended The Fernery, a very comfortable B&B in Lynton. We were not deceived! The Fernery is ideally situated in Lynton, and the B&B is near perfect in all aspects. Landlady Jo gets top marks for her attention to detail and her warm welcome. She goes out of her way to make your stay as perfect as possible.
Clean, quiet, comfortable, and an extremely lovely landlady who can't do enough to make your stay as good as it can get!
