The Denes Guest House Information


Our attractive Edwardian house is situated in Lynton, a mere stone’s throw from the entrance to the Valley of Rocks. We offer immediate access to picturesque walks and cycling routes in Exmoor National Park, as well as a comfortable place of refuge at the end of a full day. At The Denes, we focus on traditional, locally-sourced, high-quality food and comfort; yet we offer all the essentials of modern living, including en-suite bedrooms, free wi-fi and free parking. We have facilities to store and dry outdoor gear as well as a spacious dining room, where you will find a selection of information leaflets about local attractions and Ordnance Survey maps, which may be borrowed. A range of books, DVDs and board games is available for a relaxing evening. We are open from February half-term until early November each year. You can be sure of a warm and friendly welcome, whether you are visiting us for the first time or are a returning guest. Susan & John Tuck - Proprietors
