Built in 1882 for ship rescuing hero Captain Jack Crocombe. The Captain's House is an elegant Victorian stone built house at the junction of the East and West Lyn rivers, one of the best positions in Lynmouth. Snuggled amidst deep oak wooded valleys with sparkling waterfalls and cascades, it is surrounded by truly dramatic scenery.

Free car parking and garaging is available to allow you to forget the car and discover at your leisure Lynmouth's beautiful features, the villages where Exmoor meets the sea.

The Captain's House is a mere two minute level walk to the select shops of our olde-worlde smugglers village with enchanting harbour. A wide range of inns and restaurants cater for all tastes and pockets.

The Captain's House hosts a beautiful tea garden, a real sun trap in which to sit and enjoy a famous Devonshire Cream Tea. Marvel at the magnificent scenery and pretty flowers while watching the world go by, with the relaxing sounds of the river's babbling in the background. Go on, treat yourself to our mouthwatering freshly baked scones with jam and lashings of farmhouse clotted cream - mmm, wickedly delicious!

Open all year except Christmas, The Captain's House offers lavishly decorated standard and en suite rooms, all centrally heated with tea and coffee making facilities. Children are very welcome and a cot is available. Home cooked evening meals are provided on request.

The Captain's House is a paradise for nature lovers and walkers. The poets Shelley, Wordsworth and Coleridge visited the area and wrote lovingly of our village many times. The classic novel 'Lorna Doone', by R. D. Blackmore, was penned and set here.

Beckoning you are the glorious silver and green canopied walks to Watersmeet, the Valley of Rocks, the Doone Valley, Woody Bay and Brendon. The Captain's House is an ideal base for more adventurous tours of Exmoor, visit Dunster Castle, Porlock, Selworthy, Horner Woods and ancient Tarr Steps, overall a stunning landscape. A short trip on the steepest railway in the world takes you soaring 500 feet to our twin village of Lynton, commanding spectacular views of our Heritage Coast, the highest sea cliffs in England. Gaze across the Bristol Channel to Wales, where a string of glistening lights appear in the evenings.

No stay at The Captain's House is complete without a boat trip along our rugged coastline. Perched above the crashing waves are nestling colonies of screeching gulls, razorbills and guillemots. A must is a visit to the mysterious Lundy Island, once a pirates' kingdom witnessing many a dastardly deed.

After a full English breakfast it's the start of another wonderful day. With one of our packed lunches take a whole day to explore the quiet lanes with a rich tapestry of country life unfolding before you. A fine young stag tastes the early morning air. Blacksmiths shoeing horses for the local riders. Sheep being herded in the fields by alert sheep dogs. Herds of wild Exmoor ponies and cheviot feral goats on the horizon against an awe-inspiring sunset.
