Welcome to

The Bath Hotel

The Bath Hotel is a family run, quirky hotel overlooking the harbour in the picturesque village of Lynmouth, where Exmoor meets the sea. It has been in the same family since 1951. We are perfectly situated just minutes away from the South West Coast Path and the famous Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway.

Stay with us

We have 20 comfortable and quintessentially eclectic en-suite rooms, the majority with sea views. Each room has its own character, unique decor and feel, with a nod to the history of our Victorian building.

Dine with us

From exceptional breakfasts, to seasonal, delicious evening meals, we have got your dining experiences covered. Our beautiful Victorian style dining room and adjacent, dog friendly Galley area, are ready to welcome you. The Ancient Mariner is our bar with outside decking area that overlooks the harbour.

If you’re planning a trip to Lynmouth then you’ve already got plenty to look forward to; there’s the picture-perfect town, the gorgeous sea and of course, we’ve also got a world-famous cliff railway if you fancy a mosey up to Lynton.

During your stay

Once you’re here, you’re going to need to know a few things! The first is of course how our parking works, then you might want to know where to whet your whistle, before discovering where you need to go to make the most of this stunning part of the world. The information below should keep you covered on all fronts.



Staying in one of our suites? You’ll benefit from private parking! Alternatively, there are two car parks located at either end of Lynmouth, and both are just a short walk away.

Ancient Mariner

Thought it was just the hotel? Next door we also have one of Exmoor’s most unique bar and restaurants, The Ancient Mariner. A place to eat, to drink and to enjoy great company.


Fancy yourselves as explorers? You’re going to be absolutely spoilt for choice. The list of things to do on the coast, at sea, inland or on the moor is a long one, but we’ve tried to cover it.
