A well equipped, clean and spacious house with lots of outdoor seating in a lovely (but hilly) area of north Devon. Plenty of interesting shops and attractions in Lynton and Lynmouth and a great area for walking the coastal path. Nice beaches in short driving distance - Broadands being our favourite!

An incredible house that would comfortably accommodate its maximum occupancy (although we were a reduced group due to Covid). The location is stunning, perched on the side of the hill with easy walking into Lynton and a steep walk down to Lynmouth. Beware of long queues for the cliff railway and be prepared to walk back.
