A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN A LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This large house made a an excellent location for a large gathering of family and friends. The property was clean and well-maintained, without being "over luxurious" - I think this was an advantage in that everyone, adults and children alike, could feel at home in it.

The listing was accurate regarding the layout, though there were two of the bedrooms (one double, one twin) which were on the small side. I would advise people coming to follow the instructions carefully, since it is quite tucked away and not easy to find for the first time.

We had excellent customer service from the owner who was very welcoming, helpful and flexible.

Lynton is a great location for walks, near good beaches, plus plenty of lovely country pubs.

For a large group, it works out to be good value. I would thoroughly recommend this property to friends and relatives.
