Six of our rooms have sea views and private balconies, and each balcony is complete with chairs and an outside light to allow you to sit and watch the world go by. Perfect for a bottle of wine, a Cornish beer from our restaurant, or a quiet book at the end of the day. Why not all three!
Riverside Cottage is a perfect base for walking, cycling, fishing (River Lyn, harbour, beach or boat), and riding, pony trekking or just as a centre for North Devon touring. Alternately just relax on your balcony with a drink and admire the views (selected rooms only).
Lynmouth is a quiet, picturesque harbour village where the rivers of the East and West Lyn join to meet the sea. It has the second highest tides in the world, which are sometimes quite spectacular. The famous Cliff Railway joins Lynmouth to its twin village, Lynton, set in a hanging valley 500 feet above. The area has for many years been known as "England's Little Switzerland" and has inspired poets including Shelley and Southey. Experience stunning unspoilt river walks, picturesque harbour and eclectic range of great value shopping. Pubs, shops, harbour, Manor Green, beach and the famous Cliff Railway are all within an easy level walk.
Riverside Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore Exmoor. A short car or bus trip will take you to the heart of the moor where heather-clad hillsides, steep wooded valleys and sparkling rivers are home to Exmoor ponies, foxes, and wild red deer. The Doone Valley, made famous by R D Blackmore's novel Lorna Doone, is one of many delightful haunts within the Exmoor National Park.
