Right up there with the best in the business. Stayed for 4 nights in a very comfortable room. John and Sue certainly have an eye for the little details including decent coffee in the room which make a stay that little bit special. Add in a fresh cooked breakfast and you can not ask for more. Like other reviews I...

We stayed in october 2015 (sorry I'm a bit late and I can't change the date) and it was very nice. The owners were so welcoming and the rooms were very clean. We had a wonderful stay and hiked in the forest nearby.

We stayed at The Denes for 2 nights and found the bed and breakfast to be ideally located for all that Lynton has to offer. The best part of the location is that it is a short walk to the Valley of Rocks. This means that you beat the crowds on a good day as the area does get busy...
