North Walk House

Simply stunning views, coupled with attentive and unobtrusive service…

Situated right on the South West Coast path, overlooking Lynmouth Bay and across to Wales, this large Victorian cliff top residence has been a guest house since 1880. Many generations have enjoyed the breathtaking views, either dining on the terrace, from their rooms or as they wander the garden.

Inside it offers 21st Century comfort while recognising its Victorian heritage. This Wolsey Lodge is homely and welcoming, yet understatedly stylish with stripped pine boards, open fires, an eclectic rug collection and a cosy sitting room packed with books and local information.

Bedrooms have wonderful sea views, en suite facilities, furniture made by local craftsmen and the king size doubles have brass beds with orthopedic mattresses. Egyptian cotton linen, heated towel rails and designer toiletries, there’s everything you need for a relaxing, home away from home stay.

Organic ingredients, locally sourced, feature prominently on the breakfast and dinner menus. Meals are served at the large farmhouse style table in the dining room which overlooks the sea. The homemade granola is especially popular with bed and breakfast guests, as are freshly baked homemade bread and home produced preserves.

Coachman's Quarters & Garden Studio

Whether you prefer the Garden Studio or the Coachman’s Quarters, it can be agreed that North Walk House is ideally located for those looking to explore the Lynton and best that Exmoor has to offer. Both these flats are as comfortable as the B&B rooms whilst offering all the facilities for those who are looking for a little more in the way of independence.

The Coachman’s Quarters is the larger of the two whilst the Garden Studio follows the studio flat layout, as the name suggests. 

Well behaved dogs are most welcome to each of the flats, where all the facilities are on the ground floor and have access to the terrace with its fabulous views of the sea. Guests are welcome to enjoy breakfast or dinner in the main house; all the food is organic, locally sourced and prepared on the Aga.

Your B&B Hosts

Ian and Sarah both enjoyed ‘people-focused’ careers prior to moving to North Walk House, and it shows. They love sharing their house with Wolsey Lodge guests and their extensive local knowledge is a great bonus to visitors seeking information. Their exceptional welcome is just one of the many reasons guests return time and time again.


Where Exmoor meets the sea it’s the perfect base for exploring the North Devon coast. Lynton and its twin village Lymouth are ‘Jewels in the Crown’ of Exmoor National Park. Walkers are in their element, as are wildlife lovers, photographers and anyone loving the great outdoors. But there are also National Trust properties, steam railways, craft centres and much, much more for guests to discover.
