Our stay at Woodlands was wonderful. It is one of the rare and very special guest houses we've stayed in where we felt completely at home in a beautiful, tastefully renovated house which has a lovely atmosphere. Andy and Jo made us so welcome and at ease, and had gone to a great deal of trouble to ensure that every aspect of our stay was perfect - lovely room, great breakfasts, welcome tray and toiletries - and having a balcony outside our room, where we could sit and enjoy the wonderful views was the icing on the cake.
We would recommend this guest house without hesitation, and we will book another stay as soon as we can!
Lynton was lovely. We ate at The Oak Room on our first day and the Thai Restaurant on the second, and were very impressed with the food and service in both. We would also highly recommend Charlie Friday's coffee shop - great tea and divine scones, and welcoming and friendly staff.
The secondhand community bookstore in the Town Hall is well worth a visit - good choice of books at very reasonable prices. We also enjoyed the art and craft centre - again, lots of choice and fair prices.
While not a large town, Lynton has some very good individual shops. We enjoyed our stay so much that we can't wait to return.
