“Great B&B and spotted a badger!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Jo and Andy were wonderful hosts. We only stayed the one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The room we stayed in had a wonderful view, was large and had a modern bathroom. Jo and Andy gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant and sent us on our way to walk the Valley of the Rocks. Would recommend this B&B to any other travellers.

We visited Woodlands for a second time over the recent bank holiday and once again we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was wonderful to see the sympathetic restoration work that Jo and Andy had put into the property since our last visit two years ago. The rooms are very tastefully furnished and the new bathrooms are a definite plus point! We were very thankful of the lovely toiletries that were provided as we had forgotten our own. Although we didn't take great advantage of it, we loved the addition of the mini-bars in the rooms, as a cold beer was very inviting after a long coastal walk.

Everything that previous reviewers have commented on, is true to form and it is difficult to make reference to other points. Jo and Andy make fine hosts, they are incredibly welcoming and a mind of information. They are terribly kind hearted too, so much so, that whenever we wanted to fine a place to eat in the evening, they arranged everything by ringing around and reserving a table for us.

We have been fortunate to have several holidays in the South West of England, staying in Bed & breakfasts, but Woodlands stands out as one of the very best. It is excellent value and we feel sure that we will be back for another return visit!

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.
