  • "Had a wonderful time at the 'Penthouse'."

    Really comfortable beds, views to die for, did not want to come home. The only issue we had was that the lift was not working on the day we left and we had to carry all our luggage down 2 flights of stairs, not easy when you are all over 60. Other than that we could not fault it.

    We're so pleased you enjoyed your holiday - we are indeed blessed with our beautiful views and it's always lovely to hear from guests that they've had a good time. So sorry the lift caused problems on check-out day though. After you reported it, the housekeeper called out the engineer, but he found it to be in perfect working order and we're not aware of any problems since; it looks as if it was an isolated incident. The housekeeping team had fully intended to carry your luggage down the stairs for you, but evidently you'd managed it yourselves and departed before they arrived to help. We hope it wasn't too troublesome and appreciate you being kind enough to leave feedback, which is always appreciated. Property Owner

    The apartment is extremely comfortable and clean. The views are stunning. Nothing better than looking out at that perfect coastline. We always feel very much at home. Perfectly located on the coastal path and close to all the shops and restaurants

    The views from the property & surrounding area are absolutely stunning! The property owner was very helpful and provided advice and further information about the property prior to our arrival, as well as there being a very useful folder of information about the property and restaurants/surrounding areas and places to visit, provided at the property. The 6 of us really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

  • "All the Penthouse rooms are nicely set out and the views from the living room are really stunning especially on a sunny day."

    The facilities are as what are stated in the description and you are given a variety of coffee pods and a few dishwashers tablets to set you going. This penthouse has the living area on the top floor and if your over 178cm you might struggle without banging your head due to the slope of the roof in the kitchen when preparing food. The hot water comes from a tank so if multiple people are wanting a shower makes sure they are aware and don't run off all the hot water. Also, with this being an old building with plenty of thick stone walls this effects the quality of the wi-fi reception. Having said all this, we really enjoyed our stay and Lynton/ Lynmouth are lovely places to stay and walk around with friendly people. There are local walks you can go on like to the Vally of the rocks or Watersmeet and ride on the only water powered cliff railway.

    We were so glad to hear you'd enjoyed your stay and many thanks indeed for leaving such helpful feedback, as we're constantly striving to make PHLB as comfortable for guests as possible. The sloping ceiling in the kitchen whilst very pretty, can create challenges for taller guests. With that point in mind, we've installed a butcher's block on wheels and believe it's been a really useful addition, as it can be easily moved to the centre of the kitchen without any height restrictions. The hot water tank should be able to cope with larger parties provided the boost button has been switched on - it's easily done and full instructions are in the on-site information pack. We're aware the wi-fi can be a little temperamental; we installed a new router this year which seems to have had a largely positive effect, though Exmoor is as Exmoor does and one windy day can make all the difference! We'll ask the housekeeper to check everything is working as it should be and very much appreciate your feedback, thanks again. Property Owner

  • "The Penthouse was an absolutely gorgeous place to stay, it's beautifully furnished with everything you need for a truly relaxing week away from home."

    The views are spectacular and it is very relaxing to be able to sit and look out over the sea. We would definitely recommend it to others and would love to come back and stay again. The car park is normally drive in and drive out, but when we stayed a fallen tree was blocking the exit which meant that you had to exit the car park the same way you came in - I think it is worth mentioning that it is a very tight turn onto a very steep hill to get in and out of the car park.

    Thank you very much for being kind enough to leave us such lovely feedback, we were so pleased to learn that you enjoyed your holiday and we'd love to welcome you back in the future. Exiting the driveway is a little steep and we're thankful that everyone seems to have adapted to going in and out the same way for now. It's a point worth making and helpful for future guests to know. Luckily there's an ideal area at the end of the car park to use as a turning circle and this seems to be working very well.

  • "Beautiful location, ample parking."

    The apartment was very well styled with a good range of kitchen equipment, we were initially a little worried about head height as 3 tall people in our group ranging 6ft to 6ft 4, a few bumps but all would stay again. Stunning views, would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back. We have several tall people in our own family and redesigned the kitchen and dining areas to make it easier for them to avoid the beams in the upper room. The butcher's block on wheels, has been a really useful addition as it allows taller people to move it to the centre of the kitchen when preparing food. Hopefully it saved a few bumps!

  • "The property was beautiful, we didn't spend too much time in it as we were out and about with the children."

    The low beams were a little bit of an annoyance as me and my husband are very tall so a few times hit our heads but we worked round that and didn't really bother us as we were only there for a week. The children's beds were amazing and super comfortable! They loved them. But the master bed needs a new mattress. It was like sleeping on a block of pavement with two dents in the middle for us to lay in. If the mattress on the master bed was more comfortable this would have been the perfect holiday home with the most amazing views

    We're so glad you enjoyed the views and activities around PHLB, we are incredibly fortunate to look out on that beautiful vista - it's wonderful in every season actually and we never tire of looking at it ourselves. It's a shame the bed wasn't to your liking, I do hope it didn't affect your holiday. The mattress in fact is only a few months old; when we replaced it, we invested in one of orthopaedic quality, then covered it with a super-luxurious topper - when we were last there in the spring, it felt like sleeping on an extremely well-supported cloud! It sounds from your description of sleeping in two dents, that the cloud now needs refreshing and I shall ask the housekeeper to address that immediately. Thank you for your feedback, it's much appreciated. Property Owner

    The Penthouse exceeded our expectations and was warm, comfortable and clean. The views are exceptional and we had our morning cuppa and evening Prosecco on the little balcony. Everything was spotlessly clean and worked perfectly, from the radiators to the Nespresso machine. The kitchen was a delight to cook and eat in with all the crockery and cutlery appearing to be new. We came expecting to eat out most nights but enjoyed being 'home' so much we ate in all but one night. My only request would be to replace the very hard mattress in the ensuite bedroom and the bedding, which smells a bit musty. We're definitely looking forward to returning next year and thank the owners for making the apartment a home from home.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we were so delighted to read how much you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. The mattress in the master suite was literally brand new when you stayed, so was probably super-firm, (though we did choose it for its supportive qualities)! Since then, we've invested in an extremely luxurious mattress topper, so we hope when you return, you'll be a lot more comfortable. We've chosen a range of superior, silky bedding which we replace regularly, in the hope our guests will feel really pampered, so we were devastated to learn yours smelled musty.

    I wouldn't agree in calling either of the bathrooms luxurious, but both were clean and adequate. The shower head in the main bathroom was also too heavy for the fitting which made the positioning of it difficult.

    The flat is well laid out and furnished. A negative was that check in times were from 5pm on day of arrival and check out is at 9am, which we were only told about after booking. Extended timing we were told was to allow for proper cleaning in current Covid-19 situation but the level of cleanliness on arrival was not great considering they have an 8 hour cleaning and turnover window. If staying with small children the check in/out times are a challenge. Blinds in both bathrooms were broken on arrival and strangely the lightbulbs were missing from bedside tables.

    The property was beautiful and the views stunning. Prior to our visit we had slight reservations about going on holiday with the current Covid19 issues, but the kind words of advice from the owner put our minds at ease. Furthermore, the other useful information she provided proved useful throughout our stay, and showed a level of care/interest I have never experienced from other owners when holidaying elsewhere. Lynton and Lynmouth are both lovely little towns and the children in the party enjoyed exploring them via the impressive Cliff Railway. The only negative was that the lift to the apartment was out of order. Again the owner kindly informed me of this on the morning of the visit. However, it wasn't repaired until the Thursday which meant that my elderly parents were limited to where they could visit until the end of the week. That said, the comfort of the accommodation and views meant that even they were not too disappointed. Overall I would highly recommend this property.

    From the minute we entered the property we were blown away with the space, the quality of the fixtures and fittings but mostly the views! We could lie in bed and see the most stunning scenery, it’s breathtaking. The apartment is really well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owners have gone to great lengths to make sure you want for nothing with lovely extras such as an x-box and plenty of family games and puzzles to keep you entertained. It is in the beautiful town of Lynton with plenty of lovely shops and places to eat and drink. The locals were incredibly friendly and welcoming and have Covid friendly systems in place to keep everyone safe. It’s a 10 minute walk down to neighbouring Lynmouth or you can take the cliff railway. There you’ll find plenty more shops and restaurants, the beach and pitch and putt. We cannot recommend The Penthouse highly enough, we loved every minute and will definitely be returning.

Milk, tea and coffee waiting for us after what had been a long journey, so we could have a refresh before we went out. Lots of useful, up to date information provided in a folder in the property which helped us choose local walks and places to eat. All 3 generations of our family voted it a huge success.

  • "The views from the apartment were amazing."

    The bedrooms were large and well furnished. Despite the reduced headroom, the living area had great views and it was very comfortable. The owners had equipped the apartment well including lots of dvds, games, puzzles and an X box. The area is lovely with beautiful coastal walks. We had a lovely week in The Penthouse.

  • "The views from this property were breathtaking, certainly the best we have ever experienced with previous self catering properties."

    The lounge and kitchen area is on the upper floor and it has low beams and this is the only negative of this property. Could be a problem for someone very tall. It took us a little while to get use to them. This apart, we would certainly book this property again, it was wonderful.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday break in the Penthouse, Lynmouth."

    .. the views from the rooftop balcony are amazing. We loved the easy access to the coastal path and into the town of Lynmouth. The flat was decorated to a high standard and the beds were very comfortable. The recommendations given for places to eat /days out in the information at the flat were most helpful. We had some trouble finding the accommodation on arrival, as there are still exterior signs referring to it as a hotel and saying 'hotels residents only'. Perhaps the instructions could reflect this - and tell people to look for a large sign saying Lynton Cottage Apartment & Villas when turning right.

  • "The accommodation was beautifully kept and beautifully appointed."

    The upside down layout gave the most amazing views. We loved the town and my two daughters (13 and 11) spend many hours making memories that they will keep forever! Only downside was the mixed weather but hey...this is England!!

    The apartment is very spacious and extremely well equipped, with fabulous views of Lynton and the coast. The location is also fantastic, being just a couple of minutes walk into the centre of Lynton. We hope to return for a second visit soon!

The property

A superb penthouse with outstanding sea views nestling in the delightful Exmoor Park town of Lynton.

The apartment has been styled with a touch of luxury throughout and offers wonderful accommodation for a couple, family or a group of friends to get away to the North Devon coast.

Guests can access the penthouse either by stairs, or the lift which arrives outside its front door.

Upon entering the property, you are greeted to a well-presented hallway, oozing a sense of tranquillity from the outset.

The three large bedrooms and two bathrooms are all on this level, while the living areas are up a small staircase in a bright open-plan loft room above.

The apartment hosts three elegant bedrooms including one which can be configured either as a super-king or twin room, the sizeable master room with king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and sofa overlooking the bay, and a second king-size bedroom which boasts spectacular sea views.

The en-suite bathroom has been completely replaced this year, to create an invitingly serene and luxurious space, with bath and overhead shower.

Meanwhile, the second bathroom, has also been significantly refurbished, retaining its large walk-in shower, and benefiting from stylish new sanitary ware and fittings.

Follow the carpeted staircase up and you emerge into a delightful open-plan living area, decorated in a neutral colour palette, with comfortable furnishings and all the necessities required for a relaxing stay.

There are wonderful sea views from each of the three small balconies, while internally, the exposed beams reinforce the loft-style feel of this contemporary area.

At one end there is a well-equipped kitchen, with electric hob and cooker, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a new, cleverly designed dining area with a large table that comfortably seats six.

After dinner, guests can unwind in the cosy seating area, where comfortable sofas nestle by an elegant chaise lounge, and watch the TV/DVD or simply marvel at the view. In 1925, the view from this building compelled the author CS Lewis to write: “The view from the balcony was beyond everything I have ever seen,” and it remains spectacular and unspoilt to this day.

While staying here, you and your family can take a ride on the highest water-powered railway in the world and walk the famous Valley of the Rocks, both just a few minutes’ walk from the apartment. While Penthouse Lynmouth Bay is in walking distance of numerous pubs, restaurants and shops, its unique location means it is a quiet and incredibly peaceful place to stay. Half an hour’s drive will allow guests to reach the larger seaside towns of Ilfracombe and Minehead as well as the beautiful sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, not to mention the gardens, stately homes and wonderful countryside of North Devon.

The Penthouse Lynmouth Bay is an outstanding property and an ideal tranquil retreat for the entire family.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
