Second stay this year. Nothing to fault it. Gary and Linda are the perfect hosts.The rooms are lovely as are the breakfasts. Lynstead is very well placed for walking into the town or for a walk along the Byes - which is well worth it
We will be going again and again....

This was our first visit to Lynstead Bed and breakfast at Sidmouth but it will not be our last. You could not have wished for more accommodating and friendly hosts than Linda and Gary.
The B&B is ideally situated and a flat and short walk to all amenities with the added bonus of car parking.
Excellent value for money and the Breakfast was first class with top quality ingredients.
The room was spotless, spacious, and a very comfy king-size bed. The shower was excellent.

The offer of a cup of tea and coffee with homemade chocolate cake and Bakewell tart on arrival was very impressive and truly appreciated.
What was even more impressive was the email we received from Linda and Gary checking we had made it home in the snow blizzard over the A30. That showed to us they are a genuine couple.

Ser you later in the year

David and Gary

Hi David & Gary

Our thanks to you both for taking time out to write your kind words, So sorry the weather was not all it should have been (to say the least), but happy that you were able to get out to see some of Sidmouth and the surrounding area.
It was our pleasure to look after you, and we are very happy that you both enjoyed your stay with us.
Come back and see us anytime, it would be great to catch up with you both again.

But for now take care, and thanks again for your review. Cheers Linda and Gary.

My parents have just returned from a 3 night stay and asked me to provide a review on their behalf.
They stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms on the first floor which has been redecorated with a new luxury ensuite and sitting room with tv. The accommodation was comfy and cosy finished to hotel quality. The bed was extremely comfy and despite the freezing temperatures outside, was lovely and warm!
They were treated like family and had a wonderful stay. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
Thank you again to Gary & Linda!

Many thanks for your lovely review. So pleased that your parents liked our newly refurbished room 3.
It was a pleasure having them to stay and hopefully they will return in the near future when the weather has improved and they can enjoy the sunshine in our riverside garden.

We only stayed for one night at Lynstead House, but the experience could not have gone smoother. Gary and Linda are friendly, informative and gracious hosts who added that extra bit of quality to our weekend. Breakfast was excellent and Linda`s homemade cake is worth a revisit on its own.
