  • Best on Exmoor


    Overlooking the bay and harbour in Lynmouth, at the foot of the Glen Lyn Gorge, this hotel is ideally situated to take advantage of everything the area has to offer.
    The owners are charming and endlessly helpful to their guests, and all in all it would be difficult to find any fault with Shelleys.
    The hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard, with comfortable beds, lashings of hot water in the shower, and expensive soft furnishings, but the atmosphere is relaxed and informal.
    The area is riddled with stunning coastal walks and scenic footpaths, and there are breathtaking views at every turn in the road.

    Across the road is the start of a walk in the Watersmeet Valley, following the river as it tumbles through mossy glades and sun dappled woods.
    There is an extremely comfortable lounge and a cosy bar area, and if all you feel like doing is relaxing with a book and a glass of wine, it's there for you.

    Unique Quality: Great location and value and warm freindly welcome

    Directions: Village centre

  • Exmoor Getaway


    We had three lovely days at Shelleys, a few years ago we stopped at Shelleys for a couple nights and always promised ourselves that we would return.

    Shelley’s is lovely with really great standards in a very informal way but Jane & Richard are always on hand if you need any help.

    Large, comfortable beds with good quality furnishings and a few really nice touches and attention to detail that gave a feeling of luxury and breakfast really is as good as previous reviews say, hearty with plenty of choice

    The best rooms are the conservatory balcony rooms, it was a fabulous place to sit and take in the splendid views. The extra we paid was fully justified, the rate was very fair and their Exmoor Breaks offer is excellent value.

    Location is as central as you could wish for and Lynmouth makes a great base from which to explore Exmoor National Park, whatsmore there are lots of places to eat in the evening to suit all pockets.

    Shelley's is very highly-recommended and having spent too many long hours in airport lounges we will definitely be returning next year.

  • Just the thing to recharge the batteries


    We had a good journey home but are missing Shelley's and Lynmouth already!
    We had a wonderful mini-break - the hospitality is fantastic, the food superb and the room and location was just what we were hoping for.
    I really loved the huge supply of magazines and books and all the little finishing touches that make one feel so welcome and looked after.
    Just the thing to recharge the batteries.
    Thanks again for a lovely few days - we look forward to coming again soon when "they let us out"!

  • The loveliest weekend!


    My Wife and I had a wonderful stay at Shelley's, Jane & Richard were wonderful hosts, nothing was to much trouble.
    Our room was extremely comfortable and very well maintained, all facilities were excellent - first class and the cooked breakfasts were exceptional, they were always very filling and very very scrummy with a very good choice of menu.
    We really can't wait to go back again. It was my first trip to Lynmouth and it was perfect. We loved it. We will definitely be returning sooner rather than later.
    P.S. It is just called "Shelley's " now.

    Quality accommodation
    Recommended unreservedly

  • All in all, highly recommended!


    Just back from a week exploring Devon, and Shelley's provided an excellent base. Richard and Jane provided a wonderfully warm reception, the hotel is in a beautiful location, the room was clean and well appointed, and breakfast was absolutely unmissable!

    For travellers with mobility concerns, the hotel has wheelchair access right to the front door, and accommodation on the ground floor. Lynmouth itself is well suited to wheelchair and scooter users, all of the village is accessable via dropped kerbs and ramps. We sampled several of the restaurants and watering holes, and all of the proprietors were well tuned to our mobility needs.

    All in all, highly recommended!

    Unique Quality: warm reception
    beautiful location
