Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a lovely little hotel that is hidden away. After years of visiting Lynmouth we only found where it was a couple of years ago. They are only a small family hotel which rents about 5 rooms. The access is quite difficult, there is a carpark with lots of steps down to the hotel. We arrived in the dark and found it quite difficult as it is very dark due to trees and no lights around.
Pat & Linda were very friendly and made us most welcome. We were the only guests there but looks as if for breakfast you all sit round one table. Most of the food was locally made or grown locally.

Room Tip: Our twin room was at the top, the bathroom ceiling came down very low due to being in the roof. The...

I would highly recommend a stay here, the room was lovely, clean and comfortable with stunning views and it was well decorated down to the dark blue tiles in toilet. I would stay here again. The owners were friendly and helpful gave us plenty of advice on places to go and things to do. Its a lovely Lodge, I bet its even more wonderful in the summer. Great location as well, I dont think anyone would regret picking this place over the others! Im surprised its not ranked number 1 actually.

Me and my husband stayed here 2 nights over Easter, lovely host, excellent food and fabulous food, overlooks Lynmouth. The rooms are very clean.. Take your walking shoes and listen to the advise of owners. The only issue could have been a problem is the parking...However you do not need the car during stay, the village is only 10-15 min walk and there are plenty to do on foot. Would definitely recommend it to anyone for nice relaxing break

We had a lovely stay in the apartment over Easter. It is equipped with everything you need, and has a perfect little communal outside area to sit and relax with views over the bay. The owners were on hand if required. The only issue that could have been a problem is the parking – there are enough spaces, but you have to double park, so could be trapped. However, we chose not to drive during our stay, as there’s plenty to do on foot. Would definitely recommend it for nice relaxing break.
