Lynmouth and its sister village Lynton are located on the edge of the Exmoor National Park.
Exmoor is the stunning home of red deer, wild ponies, Lorna Doone and Shelley.

This is an area of exceptional beauty, with over 600 miles of clearly marked footpaths
and many riding stables offering wonderful pony trekking on the moors.        

Lynmouth is a picturesque harbour where the rivers of the East and West Lyn enter the sea.
The area is often referred to as "Little Switzerland" and offers superb countryside for walking.
Short walks are clearly signposted and carefully maintained by the National Trust.

In summer Lynmouth is bustling with visitors, many of whom come just to take a ride on the
water-operated cliff railway. This was built in 1890 and will take you on a breathtaking
journey 600 feet up to the village of Lynton, which stands at the entrance to the Valley of Rocks.

Quaint, picturesque, and very traditional, Lynton & Lynmouth offer the best of all worlds.
Some of Britain's finest beaches are within easy reach, as is the gorgeous Exmoor National Park.
