Situated in an elevated position enjoying views over the village, the surrounding Exmoor coastline and the sea, towards the Bristol Channel and the South Wales coastline. The property is ideally situated to explore Exmoor National Park, which is renowned for its moors and pastureland, with streams and rivers running down through deep wooded coombes and valleys to spectacular cliffs along the North Devon coastline.

The village of Lynton is twinned with the pretty village of Lynmouth, which offers a good range of everyday amenities, whilst the larger town of Ilfracombe and the regional centre of Barnstaple offer a complete range of amenities and leisure pursuits. The local area offers excellent walks, numerous riding opportunities, as well as coves and beaches, ranging from small sheltered locations such as Lee and Woody Bay, to the world renowned surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde. There is also a choice of golf courses in the area, the closest being at Ilfracombe or Minehead.


Located in an elevated position, the property enjoys views across Lynton village, the countryside and Lynmouth Bay.  The property is thought to have been constructed in the late Victorian era as a Gentleman's residence and was operated as a hotel for a number of years.  For the past 16 years our client has offered the property as a large self catering house but it is thought new owners could utilise the property to suit their individual needs.  Our client has undertaken regular maintenance and improvements to the property including a new roof, patio seating area with electric owning and stainless steel balustrading, removal of chimney and in the past 12 months has fitted a new kitchen, replaced the dining room ceiling, external decoration and replacement windows and fascias.

The property is currently configured as 10 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms and kitchen with many of the rooms benefiting from countryside or coastal views as well as balconies.  Many original period features remain within the property including quarry tile flooring, fireplaces, ceiling coving, stained glass windows as well as many of the rooms having lofty proportions typical of Victorian properties.  The property can be accessed in two ways, one via a footpath from the Castle Hill car park and the second to the rear from Lynway, where there is also a car parking space.  The grounds extend to 0.5 acres and offer woodland walks as well as a number of patio seating areas and a flat lawned garden area.

The electric radiator heating system is controlled by Hive heating control.


Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.


The property has most recently been utilised for holiday rental by the current owner for the past 16 years, prior to this it was operated as a hotel.  Last year the holiday rental income was £102,000 gross.


The property is sold with a detailed inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.
