“Cant wait to return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Was feeling very stressed and run down so booked myself and partner a couple of nights at North Walk House. Best decision I ever made. It was replenishing for the soul and I came home feeling happy and refreshed.

What to expect;

- Excellent quality food. All organic/free range/ local. Everything down to the table sauces are excellent quality
- Good quality ‘smellies’ in the bathroom- shower gel etc looked too nice to use!
- Clean room with crisp linen
- Sea views (and the sound of the sea!)
- Very friendly and helpful owners- we did feel like guests in their home
- A big table you share with other guests in the dining room which was a nice touch and helped you get to know others, share experiences and day out ideas
- Communial sitting room with comfy sofas
- Home made cake treats left in your room - always a winner
- 3 course dinner- spoilt for choice and was very yummy. Partner said it was the best beef hes ever had.
- Breakfast- so much to choose from I wanted to eat everything (cereal, museli,yogurt, fruit salad, toast, english brekkie/other hot food choices)
- Lovely local walks, with wild goats and an abundance of wildlife
- Town within walking distance, or get the cliff railway down to Lynmouth. Good chippy, restaurants, pubs, shops and things to do.

Owners Ian and Sarah- we know you’ll see this- we cant wait to see you again! Hope to visit again in the Spring, thankyou for a lovely holiday x

Room Tip: We had the Vert Or room which had super views

North Walk House deserves it's place is in the Sawday's guide to special places to stay - British B&B. We had a warm welcome, and tea on the terrace looking out down the coast. We stayed in a reasonably priced double with a fantastic sea view which was clean and airy. The optional evening meal we took one night was delicious, the breakfasts were excellent. The house is conveniently placed 10 minutes walk from Lynton town centre. We'd recommend the Oak Rooms tapas there. Lynmouth 500ft below can be reached by fenicular railway. Definitely worth a walk along the coast path next to the hotel. Valley of the rocks is a beautiful spot. Otherwise lots to see and do nearby.

Arriving weary from our car journey from London, we were given a warm welcome from Ian & Sarah, baggage carried to our rooms and shown round the hotel. I was immeadiately impressed with the "honour bar!" Sitting on the side of a cliff overlooking the sea and Lynmouth Bay, a stones throw from the coastal path we knew we had arrived in heaven. Sarah runs a delightfully clean & comfortable "home from home" using crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets tucked away in the linen cupboard under the stairs. The two happily slave over their AGA to provide scrumptious organic breakfasts, which is sourced locally. They also provide dinners 2/3 evenings a week. Ian will happily suggest suitable walks for those who want to explore the countryside up to a day or an hour. There is a Victorian sitting room overlooking the sea with an open fire in the winter, games, books and TV for rainy days. We can't wait to return.

I would just like to thank Sarah for a fantastic three night stay that my friends and I enjoyed recently. We arrived late at night so to open the curtains the following morning to be greeted by an amazing view of the sea was breathtaking. The room was cosy and clean and the homemade flapjack was a welcome treat after a long day of sightseeing. North Walk House has a home away from home feel about it and Sarah will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious, especially the Aga baked eggs - I would definitely recommend this! North Walk House is in a great location and within walking distance to Lynton and Lynmouth and near the Cliff Railway. We hope to visit again soon - thanks again for a fantastic mini break!

How many boxes can one place tick? Beautiful unobstructed seaviews; glorious restaurant-quality plentiful meals (breakfast and dinner); direct access to wonderful country and cliff walks and also to Lynton; well-appointed comfortable rooms with everything you could need; a beautiful welcoming house and knowledgeable, accommodating hosts. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't get in it again until we were leaving. Being a Coeliac, so gluten-free, can sometimes make eating away from home difficult, Sarah completely took it in her stride and accommodated my needs providing me with more dining options than I usually enjoy in restaurants. Our labrador was made as welcome as we were! All in all a hugely enjoyable weekend.

Room Tip: Dogs aren't allowed in every room so check with Sarah and Ian before you book online.

Ive just returned from a lovely 3 night stay with friends at North Walk House. I stayed in the twin room that looked out over the terrace towards the sea...what an amazing view! The beds were really comfy and room and bathroom immaculately clean. Sarah is a lovely host and really looked after us during our stay, cooking us a delicious breakfast each morning. The house is situated in a great location, just a few minutes’ walk from the village centre and directly above the sea. I hope to return again next year...if not sooner!

North Walk House is set in a beautiful location, ideally situated for Lynton and close to the amazing coastal path walk, with wonderful views from every room. We discovered this lovely B&B last year during a walk along the coastal path and decided to spend our 33rd Wedding Anniversary there last weekend (17/18 August). North Walk House is wonderful with excellent accommodation, all tastefully furnished with thoughtful extras such as Sarah's home-baked flapjack which was stunning. We were both lucky enough to have the place to ourselves the first night and Sarah cooked a fabulous meal which she also served to us in the cozy and warm candelit setting of their dining room, we felt very lucky indeed. The food is outstanding and Sarah and Ian cater for every need. Breakfasts are bountiful and would recommend Ian's porridge, home-made yoghurt, fresh home-made bread and the aga baked eggs and bacon, truly scrumptious. Unfortunately Ian was away at the time of our stay but Sarah kept the place running smoothly and was always happy to help with any needs of her guests. Ian recommended the Sanford Restaurant for our special anniversary meal which was lovely, great food, lacked a little atmosphere unfortunately but you can't have everything (almost wished we had eaten again at North Walk!).

We stayed in the Framboise room which was delightful, wonderful bed, smooth cotton sheets and fluffy towels and dressing gowns, perfect. North Walk House is truly a home from home and you are encouraged to share all its aspects by the wonderful owners Ian and Sarah, thank you for a wonderful weekend we will most certainly be back.
