Sitting proudly on the water’s edge in the picturesque village of Lynmouth, and perched on the edge of Exmoor National Park, is Rock House. West Lyn River, wooded valleys, high sea cliffs and moorlands make for pleasant views from the candle-lit restaurant and luscious garden, where lunch and cream tea can be enjoyed. The menus at this 18th-century guesthouse draw influences from Europe to offer dinner dishes such as aubergine caviar and mackerel and trout pâté, and mains like sea bass with couscous, king prawn tagliatelle and salmon en papillote. Look to the lunch menu for jacket potatoes, light bites, sandwiches and burgers. Walk off your meal with a visit to must-see Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway – a unique Victorian water-powered lift. You’ll be pleased to hear Rock House is ideal for intimate weddings and can be hired exclusively.
