Prospect Cottage sits on the hillside with beautiful sea views yet just a short walk from the centre of picturesque Lynmouth. This 18th century cottage oozes old world character and charm with many original features including natural stone walls, exposed timbers and many fascinating nooks and crannies. The cottage is accessed by foot and has its own garden, which is rare in this compact village. A sloped path with some steps leads up from the street to the cottage. The front door opens into the roomy open plan living area with an open fire providing a warm heart to the cottage. A well organised country style kitchen leads off and includes an original ceramic sink. The first floor is accessed by steep narrow stairs and has two bedrooms with sea views and a main bathroom. The double room has a vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers and lights in original barn fittings. Open stairs lead up to a mezzanine area with seating. A second double room also enjoys sea views. Outside, there is a terraced garden with shingle patio. The pretty village of Lynmouth sits at sea level, following the River Lyn down to the sea, while Lynton sits higher in the trees, full of quaint narrow lanes and independent shops to explore. Often known as Little Switzerland, the area is a walkers' paradise. For a unique coastal walk, follow the path from Lynton to the iconic Valley of Rocks, famous for its unusual geology and intrepid goats. Take a trip on the water-powered funicular cliff train to visit Lynton. A short drive inland takes you to Exmoor National Park, which has Europe’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses, the highest number of wild red deer in England and wild ponies

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
