We arrived at The Captain's House with a warm welcome, to a tray of coffee and tea and additional cushions to a wonderful garden with the splendour of the sun, the sound of the torrents of the river and the chorus of birdsong echoing and amplified natures way of being in the valley ..... If you wish to step back...

This is a good place to stay as the owners are very informative about the surrounding area and where to go and what to do at the best times A very comfortable place where you are made to feel at home. I would not hesitate to recommed to my friends and family or stay there again myself.

Me and my hubby spend two days in this peacefull valley and it was just perfect. We have done many walks and we enjoyed our stay with Clifford and Josie, our hosts. We love their tea garden!! I'm sure you will enjoy, too.

We stayed at Captains House in July and had no problems to find a parking on the road next to the house. We were welcomed very friendly and our room was very cosy, although very small. We took full English breakfast and were satisfied. Clifford gave us very helpful advise where to go and what to visit in Lynmouth and...

This is a lovely guest house full of character in a beautiful surrounding and I very much enjoyed my stay here. The proprietors were very attentive and their hospitality was top notch. I had a roast dinner with all the trimmings as well as breakfast, both of which were cooked to perfection! I will definitely be going back again soon!

We called in here on March 25th for coffee and cake. We knocked on the door and a pleasant lady answered and sat us at table inside, too breezy to sit out, she explained that the scones were not ready.

Will not be returning to this b&b. Very abrupt manner from host, took balance from debit card without my knowledge. In a party of eight with four rooms, only one room half decent. New pillows definitely needed in all rooms used. Luxury room didn't even have a fixed head shower.

Had a great week annual family holiday in Lynmouth at "the captain's house". Nice friendly atmosphere in an amazing historic house right on the river side. We couldn't fault it. 3 generations of our family enjoyed staying there and will definitely be booking again next summer. So much to see and do, we were spoilt for choice. Well done Captain...
