What a wonderful place to stay, Lynmouth and especially the Postmans Rest. This is a self catering place on the second floor overlooking the River and Sea. It was spotlessly clean all utensils were provided, even some milk, tea and coffee to start us off. The deal we has included a free cream tea in the Lynmouth Bay Cafe opposite, so it was a win win deal for us. The bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room were all spacious and welcoming, I would recommend this to anyone staying in the area. Wi-fi was included as the reception on the mobile was hit and miss, although we understand this is being improved for Lynmouth. It came with a dedicated parking place as well.

Have just spent 4 days in lynmouth at ‘postman’s rest’ what a great find. Location is fabulous, with views of the river, the sea and the harbour. The apartment is very light, airy and spacious but also cosy at the same time. I could of stayed for a lot longer! After a day out walking to sit in the living room and just watch the sea, with a cuppa, perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed the scones, jam and cream that were waiting when we arrived! Plenty of places to eat on your doorstep and some lovely independent shops, galleries to wander around. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

We have just returned from a short break at “Postman’s Rest” What a gem !!! The apartment is warm cozy and spotless, with beautiful views over to the sea in a great location. It is very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday and a very comfortable bed. The welcome gift from Jo was a lovely surprise and much appreciated. Can’t rate this apartment high enough.
