Having reached the end of the Two Moors Way very tired, it was lovely to be so warmly welcomed. We had a lovely big twin room with ensuite and a great breakfast. The couple running the place could not have been more helpful.

I have stayed here a couple of times. Lynton and Lynmouth is a beautiful place to stay. Lovely helpful couple that run the BnB. Brilliant with suggestions of places to go and friendly. Clean spacious rooms and lovely choices for breakfast.

The hosts were absolutely excellent, really genuinely friendly and helpful. There was a slight mix up with our booking via booking.com & when we arrived there...

Spent one night here at end of Devon coast to coast. Richard and Caroline were excellent hosts and looked after us very well. They have gone to the trouble of providing a map of the town showing all restaurants, pubs and places of interest and breakfast was excellent. Thank you for an excellent end to our journey.

As stated in my review in May we have just returned from another stay at Fernleigh - this time for 6 nights. Everything was as before, food, accommodation and owners all excellent. We will be returning again in November and have already booked for 2 more breaks next year - I think that says it all!

We visited Lynton for a 4 night holiday and really enjoyed our stay at Fernleigh, Richard and Caroline are super hosts and provided us with a very comfortable room and excellent breakfasts.
