The Denes Guest House

Key Contact Information


John and Susan Tuck look forward to welcoming you to The Denes! The Denes is an attractive Edwardian Guest House on the edge of town, the closest accommodation to the Valley of Rocks, yet only a few minutes’ walk to Lynton centre for cafes, restaurants, and shops.

The exterior exudes a unique style which matches the style of Lynton Town Hall, and many other buildings in Lynton. Once inside the Edwardian villa that is The Denes you are greeted by period terracotta tiled flooring, stained glass and original woodwork. The house has been referred to by guests as; ‘a very English house’ or even a ‘Marple-esque house’ as in Agatha Christies Miss Marple.

Each guest room is tastefully decorated with its own distinctive style, all guest bedrooms retain their original fireplaces and other features such as original wooden conduit. You may also find a wooden bell push – however, they were disconnected some years ago!

At The Denes, they focus on high quality local produce. The breakfasts get great reviews! All the food is locally sourced where possible, indeed the butcher used to be the ‘village’ butcher for many years, the eggs are Free Range Devon eggs. There is Lynton Honey and Lynton made Marmalade to top your toast! In the evenings, they offer light meals of a Platter or Pizza for two. Gluten free items are always available, vegetarian, and vegan diets are catered for.

The Denes is located across the road from the incredible views of the coast. You can walk up Snowball to Hollerday Hill (pictured). Plus, The Valley of Rocks at sunset is a must! There are lots of fabulous coastal walks and views to enjoy. There are facilities at the guest house to store and dry boots and waterproof clothing.
