An Invitation

Floral decoration Mars Hill Lynmouth An invitation from David & Marianna, to join them in their elegant, lovingly restored, period, Victorian guest house, pleasantly situated near the Cairn Nature Reserve and lovely Bicclesombe Park. We are also very handy for the town with its varied restaurants, inns, cafes and famous harbour.

The minute you enter, Coastal Fringes Guest House, after parking your car in our private car park, right outside our front door, you are made to feel at home. We combine modern comforts with hospitality of a bygone age. Nothing is too much trouble.

There are original architectural features from the Victorian period and all the furnishings and fittings have been carefully chosen to show the house to it's best advantage. There are also attractive pictures, plates and antiques to catch the eye including film memorabilia. Plants are one of David's hobbies and guests enjoy discussing the garden and there are a number of interesting houses and gardens to visit in the area.
