Found this little gem, nestled in the hillside above Lynmouth. Great location for exploring Lynmouth, Lynton, and the valley of the rocks all on foot. Hotel is very clean, homely and warm. The bedrooms are very clean, well decorated with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. The views can not be bettered! The owners are very friendly, helpful and cook a...

We stayed overnight in mid-September and arrived at about 9pm. The parking lot is a short distance from the hotel and you need to carry your bags up a flight of steps to the hotel entrance and then to your room so those with mobility issues should be aware. Mr. Hodges was away due to health problems so the restaurant...

We spent a night here at half term and would definitely return. The lady and gentleman who run the hotel were very kind and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a stunning sea view. Dedicated free parking was a bonus. Our breakfasts were fresh and tasty and the dining room also had beautiful views. The hotel was...

For the price we paid couldn't fault it. Strangely old fashioned and slightly tatty but charming. Great views, and cosy room. Has slightly Edwardian feel but couldn't help but like the place. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

We turned up early (1145) but were offered our room (7) as it was ready which allowed us to unpack and get on the coastal route which is right outside the hotel . Large room with a double and a single bed and ensuite - very clean, warm and comfortable with amazing sea views. Breakfast next morning was excellent with...

Booked 2 nights at The Choughs nest during a week long visit to North Devon. The room we had (No.3) had superb views across Lynmouth bay with a second aspect looking to Lynton and the woods. Room was immaculately presented, spacious and spotlessly clean. A lovely en-suite bathroom with teriffic bath/shower combination completed the space. Rosemary & John the owners...

First time visit to Lynton, and we stayed for the weekend. The hotel is in an amazing position with wonderful views across the harbour and bay, and delightful sound of the sea through the window as you go to sleep. We were in room number 7 on the third floor, and the view was stunning. The bed was very large...

We were unsure where to go for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and a friend recommended the Chough's Nest. What a choice! We normally stay in chain-hotels as we expect a certain standard when we go away and don't want to be disappointed. This hotel exceeded our expectations. Where to start? The hotel is unique as I don't believe there is...

A traditional family run hotel with 'old fashioned' values and service. Lovely location, peaceful and quiet with superb views. Fabulous food, nice friendly owners, very clean, comfortable and good value - what's not to like!
