We have made the decision to close The Cottage Inn for the foreseeable future, It is with an extremely heavy heart that the doors remain closed but the health of our area must come first, Our cold prepared Thai meal service will be running still, please check Facebook for regular updates or email


Everybody at the Cottage Inn wishes you the very best of visits to Lynton and Lynmouth and we hope to see you again in the future.


The Cottage Inn is set within Exmoor National Park on the banks of the River Lyn, although still working progress as our little do'er upper it is home to a passionate business and is packed full of Soul, friendly locals define who we are and its our hope that you feel this within your visit.

To enable us to have a large amount of floor space to suit the changes required for the 2020 season a temporary restaurant has been placed along the river banks within our car park, this robust construction brings you are a little closer to Nature, it also has a street food kitchen where Nartnapa will often be found showcasing some freshly cooked food.

To park at the Cottage Inn there is a slope outside of our front door, please drive slowly and carefully down, cars park against the river wall, although quite a large car park it does get full pretty quickly so please be considerate to others and park alongside other vehicles and not in open space.

 The car park at a higher level does not belong to the Cottage Inn and all spaces are rented by local residents, please do not park here.
