  • "Peter and Wendy made us feel very welcome with helpful information on places to visit and where to eat."

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and very peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Quiet and good location."

    Shower and washroom not ideal, especially exiting shower was awkward. There was nowhere to place things in the wash area, steps in both shower and wash room were not ideal, especially during the night.

  • "Very clean and tidy apartment."

    The living area and bedroom are very spacious which is a big plus point. So much to do and see locally with Lynton a real treat with its quaint shops, cafes and restaurants. Our favourite restaurant was The Old Bank. Further afield the West Somerset Railway at Minehead and Dunster are well worth a visit. TV was internet only so we could not get UK stations, BBC etc. but that was not a big issue.

  • "Ferndale is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in!"

    Paul and Wendy have provided just about everything you could wish for including a wonderfully comfortable bed! The location is also perfect being just a 10 minute walk from a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. We will definitely return for another stay!

  • "A very fine, spacious, comfortable, well furnished ground floor apartment in a spectacular location."

    Absolutely quiet - no traffic, human or vehicular, no aircraft. Dark sky, clean sea air, a heaven for walkers. Decidedly one of the very best places we’ve stayed in many years of travel, here and overseas.

  • "Ferndale was beautiful."

    Very highly maintained and so comfortable. It had everything that was needed for our 5 night stay.

  • "Ferndale has everything you need for your stay."

    It is spacious, comfortable, clean and warm and has a very welcome parking space. The interior is tastefully decorated and well equipped with quality furnishings, a very nice bathroom and all you need in the kitchen. The TV has no ariel but streaming services are available so remember to bring your login details with you. Ferndale is in a quiet location but Lynton is only a 10 minute walk away along a pleasant footpath (with a steep but short hill as you enter the village) where there are cafes and the not to be missed Lyn Valley Art & Craft Centre which is a cut above many other so-called craft centres. Charlie Fridays Coffee Shop serves an excellent breakfast and good coffee too. Lynmouth can be accessed by the funicular railway and a very nice Sunday lunch can be enjoyed at the The Ancient Mariner pub. Wendy and Paul are excellent hosts, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Ferndale.

    We will definately be back (assuming the property maintains its no pet stance - we like dogs but one of us is allergic). Nicely decorated, super clean, well equiped, comfy bed and decent shower. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks.

  • "We spent a very enjoyable week at Ferndale."

    The accommodation is warm and comfortable, with all the facilities you need after a day’s walking or cycling. The area has lots to offer without needing to use the car and being able to walk into Lynton is a real bonus. Wendy and Paul are very welcoming hosts and we would definitely consider a return visit.

  • "I visited in autumn, looking out to the colourful trees."

    A gorgeous property, well decorated, with a large comfortable bed. A beautiful area, lovely walks, places for coffee and food, particularly The Moorland Pantry, which is also a deli and shop, and Charlie Fridays. Glorious bus ride to Minehead, and also Barnstaple. Great to visit Lynton/Lynmouth without the crowds, even with some places closed, including cliff railway, was not a detraction. Great fish and chips at The Esplanade in Lynmouth. The owners of the property are delightful.

  • "Ferndale is a perfect bolthole in a beautiful area."

    The apartment is clean, comfortable and well equipped and the owners Paul and Wendy, next door, are welcoming and helpful. We only used the car once during the week to visit Dunster Castle (well worth a visit). Otherwise the immediate area is full of stunning walks both coastal and along the rivers - but be prepared for some steep climbs! We made good use of the cliff railway. Thank you Paul and Wendy for a lovely break.

    The shops and pubs were within walking distance but the route included uneven ground and steep gradients which would be difficult for those with mobility issues.

  • "Ferndale is a self-contained holiday home, adjacent to LynBridge House."

    Once parked up (a bonus in the area) you enter Ferndale to be treated by a spacious kitchen/dining/living area. The furnishings are contemporary, the furniture is comfortable, and the kitchen has large work surfaces with all the appliances, etc you need. The bedroom is spacious with a large comfortable bed. The bathroom is acceptable. Top tips are: The Olde Cottage Inn - Thai Food, Pizzas, Microbrewery - loved it. Charlie Fridays cafe is great. Get the Cliff Railway down to Lynmouth, The Ancient Mariner is recommended - watch the times for the return trip on the Cliff Railway. We can tell you the walk back is not for the fainthearted! The Valley of the Rocks is a great coastal walk with many photo opportunities and nearby Combe Martin has a nice beach (when the tide is out). Overall, we loved our time at Ferndale; it's a great base for a splendid part of Devon.

    It was in a great location, easy to access the local area and short drives from other areas of interest. The facilities were amazing, everything we could have needed! It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable to sleep and spend time relaxing. Even when we had an issue with the toilet, the owner was prompt in giving us a temporary solution before getting a plumber in the next day. We would love to stay again in the future. Thank you so much!

  • "The property was very clean and well equipped and in a stunning location with views of the hills (and the deer) and an easy walk into Lynton where there are cafes, shops and pubs."

    We had planned to explore the surrounding area by car, but there were so many fabulous walks that we stayed local and didn't use the car all week. The (very) local pub was also a Thai restaurant with its own microbrewery and was excellent. We were lucky in having very good weather, but would recommend both the property and the area, as long as you're prepared for a few hills!

The property

Set in an elevated position, a stone's throw away from the quaint town of Lynton, rests this contemporary holiday home, Ferndale.

Overlooking the treetops of the neighbouring valley towards the River Lyn, Ferndale offers an idyllic base for an escape to the coast.

A sought-after off-road parking space greets you upon arrival to this charming dwelling, leading you along a short path to a lovely seating area, perfectly positioned at the front of the stone-built cottage, inviting you to take a seat with your loved one to soak in the breath-taking views across the picturesque countryside.

Kick off your walking boots as you step over the threshold, where you'll be charmed by the remarkable open-plan living space, beautifully-appointed with high ceilings and slate flooring, featuring a contemporary décor complimented by eye-catching splashes of colour.

The rustic wooden kitchen was intricately handmade for the purpose of the cottage and is fully-equipped with all of the necessary amenities required to rustle up a meal for two, inviting you to serve at the dining table to indulge in your culinary delights as you plan your next adventure.

When sleep calls, head through to the adjoining bedroom to rest your head, thoughtfully laid out with a nautical blue colour scheme and boasting a sumptuous super-king-size bed, offering a handy zip/link feature for flexible sleeping arrangements.

In the morning, prepare for a new day with an invigorating rinse in the stylish family bathroom, before heading out to explore your surroundings.

Take the short stroll into the heart of Lynton where you can spend your time browsing the fabulous exhibitions of artwork on display at one of the many galleries, or discover the towns exciting maritime heritage at Lyn and Exmoor Museum.

Avid walkers can join the South West Coast Path atop the dramatic cliffs towards the Valley of Rocks, a craggy dry valley formed overtime by coastal erosion, boasting panoramic views across the marvellous sea and homing quirky mountain goats that wander the rock faces.

Board the highest and steepest water-powered funicular railway and visit the twin village of Lynmouth, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the scenic harbour, or along the shingle seafront at Blacklands Beach, stopping at The Ancient Mariner for a delicious home-cooked meal on your return.

Lace up your walking boots and explore the delights of Exmoor National Park, a charming landscape of moorland, woodland, hills and tumbling rivers, hosting a plethora of scenic routes to discover, suitable for a range of abilities.

The charming village of Combe Martin is within easy reach, home to over 28 acres of spectacular gardens at the family-run Wildlife & Dinosaur Park, where you can meet the friendly sea lions, or thrill seekers can partake in a lion feeding experience, and after working up an appetite of your own, treat yourself to a spot of traditional Devonshire afternoon tea at Combe Martin Bakery and Tearoom.

Further afield is the picturesque seaside resort of Ilfracombe, where the coastline is beautifully decorated with golden sand, including the private and secluded waters of the world-renowned Tunnel Beaches, aptly named after the tunnels that were hand carved in the 19th century to gain access to the unique tidal pools.

If you'd prefer to stay on land, test your swing at Ilfracombe golf club, perfectly positioned on top of the rugged cliffs, offering panoramic views of the dramatic coastline, or tour the 11th century Chambercombe Manor, thought to be haunted by the ghost of a ship wreck victim.

Make memories that will last a lifetime with a stay at Ferndale.
