Holiday Rental House
The Lynhurst is situated on the spectacular North Devon coastline within an area of outstanding natural beauty. It offers a unique experience for individuals requiring self-catering in Devon. The Lynhurst is an elegant late Victorian country house, with great character and panoramic views over the sea and Exmoor. Built as a summer retreat in 1890 for a wealthy London bankers family but more recently used to provide self-catering in Devon. The house is totally hidden in almost 3 acres of gardens and natural woodland yet just a whisper away from Lynton and Lynmouth. It is perfect for those seeking self-catering in Devon with peace, solitude and seclusion. It is only a short stroll to all of the areas attractions such as Valley of the Rocks, the beautiful waterfalls of Watersmeet and the Ly...The Lynhurst is situated on the spectacular North Devon coastline within an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Interaction with guests
I live 30 minutes away so am easily on hand should you wish to have help during the booking. I am in attendance on arrival to show guests around the house. I only attend the house if invited to do so by the guests as I respect their privacy during their booked period. The house is for the booked group only. It is not shared accommodation with any other party
