An exceptional period property with stunning coastal views
Located close to all the amenities in Lynton and easy assess to Lynmouth, either by walking the fairly steep path down or by using the historic funicular railway. We stayed at the property with a large group to celebrate a friends ‘special Birthday’. It was spotlessly clean and is very well equipped with everything you could wish for to cater for yourselves or relax after a day or evening out. Great communication by the owners Richard and Kate from the moment we booked. If you fancy a night in but not having to cook would recommend getting a delivery from The Pie Shack in Lynton. There are a number of steps and a pathway up to the property from the car parking area which we were fine with but may cause a problem to those with mobility issues.
