Like many hotels in Lynton the Lynton cottage has amazing Clifford views. The rooms are beautifully in keeping with the time the hotel was built. Food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing and tranquil.

Comfy beds, nice breakfasts, incredible views across the Bristol channel from just about every window. A great location in Lynton, near to the cliff railway for hassle free access to the shorefront as well as being very near the coastal path.

Fabulous views of the cliffs greet you as you drive in. The hotel is historical , which means a few steps and stairs inside, but the views are worth it. Dined in restaurant watching light fade over the cliffs and sea.Magical.
