If caught correctly Lynmouth can produce some excellent surf conditions, at low tide this is often the best, biggest and fastest around.
Surrounded by the spectacular wooded hills of Exmoor National Park, Lynmouth offers some of the best cliff top drives and walks around leaving the pebbled beach more often occupied by walkers than by sun bathers. In Lynmouth itself you will find many unique, quaint shops, tea rooms, cafes and other attractions.
However it is not the beach or surf, the scenery or the shops that Lynmouth is most famous for, it is in fact the unique opportunity it offers to have a ride on the ancient water operated cliff railway dating back to 1890. This railway will take you to Lynmouths Victorian sister resort Lynton, famous for its picturesque harbour frequently called ‘The little Switzerland of England’.
