We got a warm welcome with offers of tea on arrival. Room was a good size and very comfortable. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Location was good, with pleasant views, and good walks nearby. Lynton itself is quaint as is Lynemouth. Would highly recommend this B&B. Eve + Baz

Thanks for the review Eve & Baz, I would point out to viewers on Trip Advisor that the cemetery is an historical one, last used in the 1930s I believe.

From the moment of booking to the moment of leaving the hosts were truly professional, caring and attentive without intrusion. We had 2 rooms booked and can say as an ex-hotelier there was everything one would expect. The standards of cleanliness are high. We all loved our stay and already know that when we return again next summer we will...

Very warm welcome from Susan and John at this lovely B&B. Perfect room at the top of the house, very clean with nice touches and a very good breakfast. Five minutes walk into the town or, in the other direction, onto the most stunning coastal walk.

This B&B is great value for money. While our room was located up 2 flights of narrow stairs, the room itself was very well appointed, with some nice extra touches, such as a fancy chocolate on the pillow, bottled water, and a biscuit jar. The shower was fantastic, with great water pressure, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was also...

The Denes is brilliant. We had a day trip to Lundy Island booked, sailing from Ilfracombe, and decided to use Lynton as a base to stay overnight the night before and on return from Lundy. What a great decision. The Denes is a big property with several well decorated and comfy rooms. Lynton itself is just a five minute walk...

We stayed here for 2 nights (a Saturday and Sunday) as a last minute online booking. The b&b is run by a lovely couple - John and Susan - who are very welcoming and friendly. We arrived early and they were more than happy for us to leave the car on the car park (at the back of the house)...
