The Lynhurst is situated on the spectacular North Devon coastline within an area of outstanding natural beauty. It offers a unique experience for individuals requiring self-catering in Devon.

The Lynhurst is an elegant late Victorian country house, with great character and panoramic views over the sea and Exmoor. Built as a summer retreat in 1890 for a wealthy London bankers family but more recently used to provide self-catering in Devon. The house is totally hidden in almost 3 acres of gardens and natural woodland yet just a whisper away from Lynton and Lynmouth.

It is perfect for those seeking self-catering in Devon with peace, solitude and seclusion. It is only a short stroll to all of the areas attractions such as Valley of the Rocks, the beautiful waterfalls of Watersmeet and the Lynton and Lynmouth cliffe railway.

"Great house for casual entertaining in Devon"

Very well equipped house with fantastic views. Jane (the owner) was very helpful and it was perfect for our needs (stag party). Some of the rooms would be very cramped for an extended stay but they were fine for our needs!
