  • "First impressions were not good."

    Had to get through two gates both barely holding themselves together then into the garden which needs a good tidy up (last autumn’s leaves still on the ground). Once inside the cottage it was clearly obvious it hadn’t been cleaned although cleaners arrived a bit later and changed bed linen and cleaned bathrooms etc. Cottage is comfy enough but needs a deep clean, dust and cobwebs everywhere. A rustic cottage is one thing, a dirty cottage is another. Facilities passable but could have done with some more teaspoons (only one provided) and some decent coat hangers. Also, as a pets welcome cottage a water bowl would have been useful.

  • "Really enjoyable stay at Prospect Cottage , thank you."

    Very clean cottage and everything there we needed. Did take us a while to find it but that was fun. Perfect location for our short visit to Lynmouth and although no parking the car park was really close by.

  • "We had a wonderful restful time staying at this truly lovely 'dog friendly' rustic cottage."

    It gave us comfort and space & I would love to come back again. No complaints at all - just could have done with advice on recommended parking and how to find the cottage!

Within easy reach of ample settlements along Devon's coast, along with Exmoor National Park, this is a charming setting for a group or family of four's seaside escape.

After climbing the steps to the property, be welcomed by a charming living/dining room, a space showcasing a toasty woodburning stove that is surrounded by ample seating for you all to unwind on; switch on the TV to enjoy a family film night.

When you're feeling peckish, progress through the property to find a country-style kitchen, where the designated chef can rustle up delicious home-cooked meals as they marvel at the rooftops of Lynmouth and distant sea from the window.

Just off the kitchen is a utility hosting a handy washing machine and fridge/freezer.

When dinner is served, enjoy it with your loved ones at the dining table as you recount your beachfront escapades.

As the day draws to a close, ascend the stairs to discover to lovely bedrooms, one being a double featuring cream accents and sea views, the other being a spacious double hosting exposed beams, exposed stonework and rustic light fixtures; the space is served by a small mezzanine area, where you can stretch out on the sofa as you bask in the light streaming down from the skylight.

The bedrooms are accompanied by a fantastic bathroom, a spot showcasing wooden features along with a bath with shower over; ideal for those evenings where you want to soak up after a day packed with walking.

In the morning, savour a coffee at the one of two outdoor seating areas, the first being an enclosed front gravelled area, and the other being a quaint, lawned area situated to the side of the property.

Just behind the property, you will find the fantastic Ancient Mariner pub, where you can enjoy a bite to eat on those days where you don't feel up to cooking; after lunch, be sure to explore the lovely settlement of Lynmouth, where you will come across the stunning Blacklands Beach, the fascinating Llyn Model Railway and the enchanting Glen Lyn Gorge.

Continue to Lynton and board the renowned Lynton & Lynmouth Railway to discover clifftop amusements, before touring the village's unique art scene via its selection of galleries; venture a little further to find the National Trust's heritage building of Watersmeet, for an afternoon immersed in history.
