Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was unusual and unique. Loved the location. The room just suited us nicely. The staff were absolutely fabulous, helpfull, full of humour and couldnt be faulted. Food was delicious and the even accommodated the fussy eaters in the group. Highly recommended. Local beer to be tasted!!!

2/5 Poor

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The family room in the attic is difficult to access due to very steep stairs and the bed absolutely needs to be replaced. The food was good and the breakfast was OK. We were treated well, with a positive attitude from the staff. If you arrive in a bigger car like an SUV, parking could be a challenge due to a very narrow entrance.

Over the hill at 40!!
Made to feel very welcome from start to end! Dual aspect room which was clean and comfortable with ample storage and a fantastic shower room! Views of the river and the valley. Breakfast was plentiful and really set you up for the day, the sausages were meaty and very tasty! Easy access to Lynton on foot via Lynway (a flat walk with a steep incline/decline either end!!). Great area in general for walks, definitely for hill lovers!! Try the restaurant, the Thai food was fantastic. Our favourites included the prawn dippers and Thai fish cakes! The Fat Belly beers are moreish ... beware lol! Tip: If you're staying a few days consider the week pass for the Cliff Railway.

A Brilliant Weekend
There were 3 main reasons for choosing, The Cottage for our short break on my wife's Birthday, firstly location it's near the Lynton Cliff Railway, secondly the onsite Thai restaurant, thirdly, they brew their own beer. Akk in all it was a brilliant weekend.
