Friendly B&B, convenient location

Posted Mar 21, 2016
Pros: Location
Location: Selworthy and Bossington are pretty National Trust villages and Tar Steps are worth a visit too.
We spent one night at Hillside House which was central to a tour of Exmoor. The owner was friendly and knowledgeable about the locality, breakfast was ample and tasty. Our only disappointment was the size of the room - barely a small double - and tiny ensuite. The room was well decorated and furnished, bed comfortable but the shortness of space to move around was unfortunate. We understand that the other rooms are larger and we did pay less for the room so have no complaint.

Staying at hillside

As a visitor was made to feel very welcome. Denise was friendly, warm and helpful. Various places to visit and idyllic surroundings - rivers, waterfalls and gorges filled with trees. Definitely would visit again and stay with Denise.

2 night autumn break in October 2015. A warm, friendly welcome from Denise who showed us to our lovely room with a river view. Comfy & clean, and a delicious home cooked breakfast to set us up for the day. The guesthouse is set up from the road, overlooking the river. A lovely spot. Denise is knowledgeable about local area, events, shops, walks and eateries. I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone.

Perfect location for walking and sightseeing.

Pros: Very homely and good value
Location: Recommend the cliff railway and the walk to Watersmeet.The Bistro in Watersmeet Road is worth a visit....good menu reasonably priced
A very nice few days in a picturesque location. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, she offered another room which was larger and had better views,which was much appreciated. The breakfast was good and substantial . We had no problem, however it is worth mentioning that the entrance steps were very steep and would prove to be difficult if you have mobility issues . Lynmouth is an ideal location offering good food in a picturesque setting. We both recommend the walk to Watersmeet...superb.

Zimmerausstattung ist besser als der Eingangsbereich. Schick eingerichtete Zimmer, sehr sauber. Denise ist eine sehr herzliche Gastgeberin. Lage, Umgebung und Wandermöglichkeiten hervorragend.

A memorable and homely retreat!

Hillside Guesthouse was a great choice for a comfortable and relaxing weekend. The location is good with only a 10 minute walk to the restaurants and seafront, and close to the gorge for walks. Hillside is clean and homely, with helpful and friendly owers and one of the best breakfasts we have ever had! The only minor inconvenience is parking, with limited street spaces available, but not a great problem.

Hillside Guest House

My wife & I had a 4 day break from July 20th at Hillside House. Lovely 19th century house,very cosy, good location, lovely couple who run it, very good breakfast & in a good location. No on site parking but we had no trouble as you can park just down the road from 4pm to noon next day. Excellent break
