“Great B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

I have recently returned from a 2 night stay at Woodlands with friends. Jo and Andy were the perfect hosts and make this B&B a great place.
I stayed in room 4, a large, airy room which is beautifully decorated, having an ultra modern bathroom, super king sized bed and a small balcony.
The B&B is situated in a wooded valley, which provides a tranquil and beautiful setting, while just a short stroll takes you into Lynton. A conservatory at the front of the building provides the ideal location to do some bird spotting or simply to sit and read, or take in the glorious views.
Jo and Andy have worked hard to make Woodlands the place that it is. They offer accommodation of a high standard at reasonable prices in a truly wonderful setting. This is a hidden gem and I highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in the Lynton/Lynmouth area.

We spent one night in this splendid B&B whilst walking a section of the Coast Path. As a haven of comfort is was unbeatable. The spacious bedroom with its superking sized bed and wet room en-suite could grace a major hotel and the house itself is located in a peaceful, beautiful setting.
The welcome was friendly and we spent a lot of time chatting to Jo and Andy about anything from travel to gardening. The hearty breakfast set us up perfectly for the next day's walking.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms are quiet even on the road side and can be viewed on their website.

Just spent a wonderful couple of nights at Woodlands! Jo and Andy have thought of everything from a mini bar in the room to wonderful smelling shower gels in the bathroom to a hairdryer in the bedside drawer! The bedroom and bathroom have been refurbished to a very high specification. Breakfast was wonderful and again everything was thought of...full English, fresh fruit, delicious yoghurts, etc. Lynmouth and Lynton had some wonderful walks and place to visit and all within walking distance of the Guest House. We definitely plan to return!

We stayed at the woodland B&B a year ago and still have very good memories of our stay.
The spacious room was very clean and we had a great breakfast. The owners were very friendly
and we really enjoyed their hospitality.

A big thanks to Jo and Andy for making our stay extra special once again. Nothing is too much trouble for them they certainly go the extra mile. New additions of the fridge and wine a much enjoyed extra after a long walk. Just sorry couldn't stay any longer. Love the renovations. Ruth and Sam

Room Tip: All wonderful I'm sure

We found this a great place to stay. The B&B was well located with it's own parking area. The room was very well decorated, spotlessly clean, well lit and spacious with an excellent wet room. There was a big balcony which unfortunately we couldn't use due to the cold weather but in the summer it would be lovely to sit outside and enjoy a reasonably priced drink from the mini bar. Despite the fact that it was quite cold outdoors the room was always warm, the bed was very comfortable and the towels in the bathroom were excellent. Breakfasts were very enjoyable with plenty of choice and very good quality food which was cooked to perfection..
Andy and Jo were great hosts and did everything they could to make your stay very enjoyable. There was plenty of tourist information and maps to find your way around.
Lynton which was about a half mile walk along a pathway at the back of Woodlands had plenty of good places to eat at night. Andy and Jo's recommendations were really helpful.
Would we return? YES!!

Room Tip: Watersmeet was a lovely room
