Take a walk from Lynton along North Walk to the Valley of Rocks, home to Lynton’s famous herd of wild goats and admire the dramatic rock formations in the valley. A unique water powered Victorian Cliff Railway offers an additional form of transport between Lynton and Lynmouth giving views over Lynmouth bay and towards the South Wales coast.
Situated on the North Coast of Devon noted for its high sea cliffs and within the Exmoor National Park, which is noted for its breath taking natural beauty and unspoilt landscape this is the perfect place to get to the inner moors, visit historic houses, inspiring gardens, or catch a glimpse of the majestic Red Deer and the wild Exmoor ponies.
“Lynmouth harbour once famous for herring fishing now offers scenic boat trips along the Exmoor Coast and mackerel fishing in the bay. Lynmouth bay offers challenging surfing and as one surfer said “When it’s on, Lynmouth is a class wave, not for the faint hearted though…”. Not to be missed is the walk from Lynmouth following the East Lyn river to Watersmeet here you will be rewarded with waterfalls and a cream tea at Watersmeet House (open March – November) . Lynton and Lynmouth are situated on the South West Coast Path and many other long distance paths start (or finish) in the area making this a walker’s paradise.”
