We just come back from a cycling holiday on Exmoor, and we had such a great time staying with them that I registered on TripAdvisor just to write this review. I would recommend Pine Lodge to anyone who wants to visit the area.
We stayed at three places for this trip, and Pine Lodge is without any doubt the best! We were given the warmest welcome on arrival, and I was so happy as we walked into our room. It was lovely and spotlessly clean, super comfortable bed, and great bathroom. We were worried about where to store our bike initially, but the owner kindly provided us with a secure shed behind the car park, which was the best we could have asked for. So highly recommended for cyclists to stay!
The breakfast was fantastic. We are quite spoiled at home with cooked meal, fresh fruits and yoghurt every morning, and we were served the same here, only the variety was even greater! For us two cyclists riding 30 miles a day in the hills, this was perfect for us to start off a day. The owner also gave us a lot of good suggestions on where to eat and ride.
We had to laundry for our trip because we didn't want to carry too much stuff riding across the moor. They helped us drying the clothes when we are out in the day, so we wouldn't end up without cycling clothes the next day.
The house itself is in a beautiful setting, a quite and lovely short walk away from the Lynton town centre. Lynton boasts beautiful walking paths and cycling routes around. Be prepared with lots of 1:5 hills!
