This apartment, spread over the second and third floors of a renovated historic building, is modern, spacious, comfortable, and well appointed.. All the furniture and fittings are of a very high standard. We particularly liked the dining set, ceiling lights, upstairs shower, and granite-effect floors in both bathrooms. Although the flat can sleep six in three bedrooms, there were just two of us – my wife and I – and we still found the apartment reasonably priced and good value for money. Its location is ideal: in a quiet side street yet only three minutes' walk from the centre. It's also in the same street as the drop-in medical centre. It should be noted that, as there is no lift and the stairs are fairly steep, the flat is not suitable for the disabled or infirm. It was useful to have a dedicated parking space, as parking in Lynton is a problem. Our car did not move during the four-day break as Watersmeet, Lynmouth, the Valley of Rocks, and Hollerday Hill are all accessible on foot or via the wonderful, water-powered lift. The hilly little town is a pleasure to walk around with quirky, quality independent stores, loads of restaurants and tea shops, and very little tat. The views in all directions are outstanding. Lynmouth beach is rocky, but there is good swimming – at high tide only – from the shingly east beach. It's a five-minute walk after you cross the white bridge.
There are just a couple of quibbles. We slept upstairs, but at 6' 3" I couldn't stand at the loo because of the sloping roof. (Downstairs loo is OK.) More annoying was trying to lock the door on leaving the flat. The lock is fiddly and temperamental – sometimes works first go, sometimes at the tenth attempt. (If it were my flat, I'd change it.) Overall, however, we had a highly enjoyable stay here. We can strongly recommend it and will certainly consider staying here again.
