Lynmouth

The area has a spectacular combination of sweeping moorland with steep, rugged, tree-clad cliffs and gorges and enticing sheltered bays. Exmoor National Park covers 265 square miles, and remains as wild and beautiful as in the days of R D Blackmore’s Lorna Doone. On the moor the red deer and wild ponies roam free, and with a lattice work of bridal paths, it is a haven for ramblers and horse riders.

Lynmouth is also an ideal base from which to tour, with many major attractions within a couple of hours drive.
The village of Lynmouth has a thatched pub, The Rising Sun, several hotels and restaurants. There is the oldest working water-operated cliff railway, linking Lynmouth to Lynton with its many eating places. A railway line is also opening from Woody Bay - watch this space!

The harbour at Lynmouth is full of boats and dinghies. Boat trips along the coast can also be taken from Lynmouth Harbour and sea fishing trips can be arranged.

Visit the Valley of the Rocks with its spectacular rock formations and stunning views of the sea. Here you will probably see herds of the famous wild goats that roam over the rocks.

Lynton

Perched proudly on the edge of Exmoor, high above sea level, Lynton is a superb place to park the car and take the water-powered Cliff Lift down to Lynmouth. On the other hand there is a marvellous zig-zag path, with its exhilarating views, to take you the 500 feet down to sea level.

Surrounded by rolling moorland Lynton exposes you to dramatic and rugged wooded valley gorges and lovely walks by the waterfalls. To the east is Foreland Point and Watersmeet Valley with the most spectacular coastal, moorland and woodland walking possibilities.
