The cottage was a lovely quirky cottage and the garden was safe and great for our dog. Lynmouth and Lynton are really dog friendly Mrs J Remblance - 5th September 2017
Beautiful cottage with an enclosed garden, ideal for our family and dogs. Fantastic location in the middle of Lynmouth, close to all amenities. We would love to stay here again and have recommended this cottage to our friends too! Mrs Megan Paige - 29th May 2017
Prospect Cottage is ideally located just behind Lynmouth Street, very close to all amenities and yet tucked away at the back offering privacy. It has bags full of character and offered comfortable accommodation for the entire stay.Mrs S Clarke - 21st February 2017

Having just spent a week in this wonderful character cottage so many thing to like ... We were privileged to be the first to stay here and found it comfortable clean and well situated for all the lovely local shops pubs and cafe's and of course the amazing walks .... the arga was awesome ! as was having free wifi in an area which struggles with modern communication ... The beds were like sleeping in big marshmallows and the rest of the cottage was well equipped with a two showers a bath and two toilets ..we took our two small dogs who along with ourselves enjoyed the secluded private and interesting split levelled garden which had the sun shinning into it Value for money superb!!Jenny Holmes - 20th June 2016
