“one of the best places i've ever stayed”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

From the moment I knocked on the door to the moment I left, the service was outstanding. The room was very well presented with some very nice extra touches. If only all places were this good.
The Value was outstanding £34 Bed and Breakfast. I doulbt you will find a better breakfast in the Southwest, let alone Lynton.

Lovely friendly owners, making you feel welcome with a nice pot of tea on arrival in the guests lounge, which has books and games and information books, on the local area.
Breakfast was amazing !! so much on offer,from the buffet table as well as a superb cooked breakfast to order, was very delicious! it really set you up for the day!
The Lavender room was beautiful! light n airey, large, quiet,spotless, and comfy, with a tv, clock, bath and a shower with beautifully fluffy white towels. It also had, complimentary chocolates, biscuits, tea, coffee and toiletries in the room,which was a lovely touch.
There are lots of stunning walks in the area and it is in a lovely location. Lynton and Lynmouth being very picturesque! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
Many thanks Rob and Maureen!

We had been camping but had to leave due to bad weather so were wanting a simple B&B for the night. We wandered into this place and were surprised at the low price considering peak season. The owner was really kind and welcoming. The room was ideal (especially after camping!), comfortable bed and good shower.

The real highlight is the breakfast which had a very extensive menu and provided lovely food and good coffee.

We were only there for one night but would highly recommend it if you're looking for a simple B&B which does great breakfasts and makes you feel very welcome.

We had a wonderful stay in South View with the best breakfast during our trip in England. Clean, quiet and lovely room. Absolutely nice and friendly staff gave us a warm welcome and good advice for our hiking activities around Lynton. They accept credit cards. Just perfect. We would like to go there again.

My friends and I arrived at South View muddy and wet after walking from Portlock. We were greeted with a friendly welcome with a big pot of tea and a sit in the relaxing lounge.
In the lounge there are useful information folders of restaurants and walk in the area, books and games. The rooms are light, clean and nicely decorated with hand-made cross-stitch, patchwork, and photographs they took. Selection of tea with fresh milk, chocolates and biscuits. The breakfast was amazing! I had a full English breakfast but there was also fish on the menu. I also enjoyed the fruit salad and home-made jam.
It really felt like they enjoy running the B&B. They lent us umbrellas and even dried our shoes and clothes for us!

Read the reviews on trip advisor before booking, wasn't disappointed.
It was a great B&B with fresh milk for drinks and choccies for late night nibbling.
We were greeted with tea and coffee when we arrived . The owner was very welcoming and answered any queries we had. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our 2 night stay.
The scenery in the area is spectacular and both Lynton and Lynmouth are worth visiting.

Room Tip: Rose room was good
