These quite unique towns – Lynmouth on the harbour at the bottom of the cliff and Lynton overlooking at the top – are set in a stunning coastal location on the edge of Exmoor. Linked by the historic Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, the towns attract a steady stream of visitors all year round. Lynton and Lynmouth and the wider rural area also have a settled, self-reliant, living and working community that supports the development and growth of the local economy and makes use of the local shops, cafes, services and restaurants. Road and bus services connect Lynton and Lynmouth to nearby Porlock (12 miles), Combe Martin (13 miles), Ilfracombe (19 miles) and Barnstaple (18 miles).

The situation
Watersmeet Road is the main arterial road leading up to the steeped wooded valley to Watersmeet. The property is located close to Lynmouth's main car / coach park and is therefore a short walk from the village centre.

The property and construction
Having originally been three cottages the property is of three storey construction under a pitched slate roof with rendered elevations to the front and rear. At present the property is configured as a 5 bedroomed (all en-suite) B&B with lounge, kitchen and dining / breakfast room. Each of the bedrooms and reception rooms face the River Lyn and enjoy the views and sounds of this famous river. There are further spaces by way of 2 attic rooms which it is thought could be utilised as further private accommodation if desired, subject to PP. To the rear of the property is a garden area which leads from the property up the hill and to a plateau at the top where views over Lynmouth village, harbour and Bay can be enjoyed. Unusually for Lynmouth the property does have the benefit of 3 private car parking spaces on a small parcel of land located opposite the property. Although a B&B at present, new owners may wish to use the property as a single dwelling which could be achieved subject to PP.

The proposal
Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest. It should be noted that there is Japanese Knotweed present in part of the rear garden which has been routinely sprayed by the Local Authority.

The business
Having been in our clients ownership for approximately 25 years, it was last operated as a B&B in 2015 due to ill health. It is thought new owners may wish to re-establish a Bed and Breakfast trade or offer the whole property as a holiday let.

The inventory
The property is sold with an inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.
