My partner and I stayed at Woodlands Guesthouse for 2 nights and I can honestly say we didn't want to leave. We would like to say a big thank you to Steve and Leslie for making our stay so safe and pleasant, the included breakfast was perfect and the location is only a short walk away from the town. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Everything was perfect, we will definitely be back!

Best break for years. Usually stay in hotels but decided on a guest house for a change. Best decision we made. Hosts were lovely and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Breakfasts were massive, great setup for a long day walking! Location was further out of of town as we didn’t want to be crowded in. Soon sussed out places to eat in the evening. However, the hosts do dinner in the evening which according to fellow guests was amazing. When we come back will definately book to eat in. Can’t find any faults. Hosts lovely. Accommodation spotless. Great location for peace and quiet. Fabulous base to explore Lynmouth and Lynton. Great food.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in Lynton at Woodlands Guesthouse. Our room was large and comfortable with a lovely balcony - in the summer this would be have been even lovelier! The view of the valley and trees was beautiful with sounds of birdsong. Lesley and Steve are relaxed hosts who do all they can to make ones stay as pleasant as possible and it is all Covid secure. Breakfast choice was varied and the quality excellent. They clearly take care to source high quality ingredients. We would highly recommend Woodlands to anyone planning a trip to Lynton or Lynmouth.

We stayed in the guesthouse for three nights in total and it exceeded all our expectations! Lesley and Steve are wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the room “watersmeet” and it is tastefully decorated, very spacious with lovely woodland views from the balcony. The bathroom is very modern and way more generous in size compared to most guesthouses we have come across. We were a bit concerned about the location to start with but the walk to Lynton center via the walkway took less than 10 minutes with lovely views along the way. In the end we were actually quite glad we didn’t stay in Lynton center as it would have been a bit too busy for us. We had the pleasure of eating dinner at the guesthouse one night and the food was absolutely fantastic. Breakfast was again a highlight and was cooked to perfection every morning. There is also a Thai restaurant down the road from the B and B with lovely food. Woodlands is by far one of the best places we have stayed at and it is well worth every penny. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is considering a holiday in Lynton.
