Booking Terms and Conditions

We would advise that as the house does not have an internal lift, in our opinion the property is not best suited for people with mobility issues.

    From the top of Lynmouth Hill turn left to Lynbridge. Woodlands Car Park is located on left hand side after approx 200 yards. Woodlands Guesthouse is located on the hill opposite the Car Park.
