One of the best B&Bs in Devon and the South West.

We're proud to have been recognised and awarded as one of the best Bed and Breakfast in the Devon, and the entire South West. These awards and reviews are important because they tell us we're doing something right. Something that ensures our guests will have a special and memorable stay with us in Lynton & Lynmouth.

We love providing a friendly, inviting house where our guests feel relaxed and at home. It's even more perfect when our guests feel like they can enjoy breakfast in their slippers or snuggle up in the lounge reading a book. That's our kind of bed and breakfast.
