At the Fernery again in winter. Again all perfect. Host lovely. Rooms immaculate. Breakfast the very best. Wish I had more time in the summer to visit. Will try to do this year and will stop at the Fernery again. if you like very modern. Not for you. If you like clean, comfy, tasteful with outstanding bedding. Well you decide.

We stayed at The Fernery for a long weekend and found the B & B most comfortable and Jo the host was most welcoming and very helpful. We were offered a drink a soon as we arrived which we thought was a nice touch, The room had the standard tea, coffee, biscuits and each day bottled water was made available.

We stayed a night at 'The Fernery' as a present from my daughter. I'm not sure how she chose it but I'm glad she did. We were greeted by the owner Jo who showed us to our room, sorted the inevitable paperwork and invited us down for a cuppa and cake in front of the fire. Part of the paperwork...

My partner and I stayed at The Fernery this weekend for two nights. What a beautiful place! We have a lovely room with all facilities overlooking the garden. Jo was an amazing owner / host. The breakfast was excellent and she was very friendly and provided a car permit for all day parking and lots of information about the area....

Hard to fault this place. A lovely B&B run by a very friendly lady, who made us feel very welcome, and went out of her way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The Fernery is located right next to the town, which makes it a great place to stay to explore Lynton and Lynmouth. Sadly we only stayed one...

The accommodation is great. Lynton is small, and this place is very close to the main road. Rooms are attractive with super bedding (one of the best we have experienced every). Jo specializes in extensive breakfasts. Best is Jo's welcoming and warm personality. We really appreciated it.
