The Guests' Lounge - Ingleside Guest House, Lynton, Devon
Ingleside's lounge, built in the 1890s, has kept much of the character and atmosphere of the Victorian times, is the perfect place to relax in after having driven across Exmoor or walked on the North Devon Coastal Path, or visited the Valley Of Rocks or maybe just had a Devon Cream Tea!
We always have a jigsaw on the go on the large table next to the window. We have comfortable settees, armchair, and even a rocking chair.
There are games ranging from chess to Uno to Monopoly; a bookcase with loads of books on the local history, including the flood of 1952, The Cliff Railway, Sir George Newnes, Hollerday Hill, the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, Woody Bay, and plenty of maps and books on local walks ..... Watersmeet, Lyn Valleys, walks over Exmoor, round Woody Bay, Countisbury, and further afield round the Barle Valley and Simonsbath. We also have novels, a selection of local magazines, but no television.
Diana serves complimentary coffee and mints in the lounge if you have sampled our 3-course evening meal, with all food where possible sourced locally on Exmoor and home cooked in Ingleside's "mean machine", the AGA
