An award winning 14th Century thatched smugglers inn overlooking a tiny picturesque harbour and Lynmouth Bay with its stunning backdrop of the highest hogback cliffs in England, and situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, where herds of deer, wild ponies and birds of prey roam free.
The Rising Sun Hotel is steeped in history with oak panelling, crooked ceilings, thick beachstone walls and creaking uneven floorboards. It was in one of its rooms that R.D.Blackmore wrote several chapters of his West Country classic Lorna Doone.
A most interesting feature of this Lynmouth hotel is Shelleys Cottage named after the poet, it is widely believed that Percy Bysshe Shelley spent his honeymoon there with his 16 year old bride Harriet in 1812.
