Planning Background - We understand that the property was run as a Bed & Breakfast/Guest House business until the owners retired about 18 months ago. At the time the property was business rated but has since moved on to council tax. Exmoor National Park have confirmed that the existing Guest House/Hotel use should stand. An application for adaptation to residential use may be considered if the property has not sold after a year of marketing.

Directions - Approaching from the A39 at Barbrook, turn left opposite the service station signed Lynton and Lynmouth. At the next junction bear right towards Lynmouth and follow the road down into the village. Immediately before the bridge over the river turn right into Watersmeet Road, on the right hand side there is a free parking area for 2 hours, or a car park directly opposite, it is best to park in one of these options and walk up to the property which will be found on the right hand side, identified by our for sale board.
