Hillside House

HILLSIDE House is a beautiful building dating from the 1790s, though parts of it are much older.  According to local tradition it was once a dairy, and the oldest part may date from as early as the 1400s. It is listed (Grade II) as a building of historical interest. The building has been used as a bed and breakfast since the 1940s. 

Like many old buildings it has settled a bit and you will fail to find any walls or floors which are straight or corners which are perfectly square. For many of our guests this is part of its charm.
The décor sympathetically combines many original features with bright, tasteful colours and period furniture. Each room has a television, hair-drier, tea/coffee making facilities and either en-suite or private bath/shower room. Double, twin or single rooms are available. Well behaved dogs are welcome. Packed lunches and picnic baskets are available on request and we can arrange kit transfer service for walkers. We are a non-smoking establishment.

We offer a four-course breakfast in our dining-room where a large selection of books and magazines (many of them about Exmoor) are available for our guests to peruse. Outside we have a terrace where guests may wish to relax, surrounded by plants, and enjoy the sights and sound of the river.

Situated on the East Lyn river at Lynmouth, our guest house is ideally suited both to the needs of walkers or those of a less strenuous disposition. 

A mere 400 yards from the South-West Coast Path it is the perfect position to explore an abundance of coastal, riverside and woodland scenery: rugged cliffs, secluded bays, the Exmoor moorland, the Doone valley, Porlock and  Watersmeet. 

Or a gentle stroll around the village itself with its enchanting harbour, quaint fishing cottages and interesting shops. If you prefer you can take a boat trip from the harbour, along the Heritage Coast, or go up the water-powered cliff railway to Lynton and visit the Valley of Rocks.
Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey and Shelley (who honeymooned here in 1812) were all inspired by the area, and the beauty and serenity they found can still be found today in this unspoilt and magical corner of England.
