About

The ancient twinned towns of Lynton and Lynmouth sit on the most northerly coast of Devon, where Exmoor meets the sea. The towns are set between steep hillsides and deep wooded valleys, separated by a dramatic descent; the pretty village of Lynmouth sits at sea level, following the River Lyn down to the sea, whilst Lynmouth sits higher in the trees, full of quaint narrow lanes and independent shops to explore. Often known as 'Little Switzerland’, the area is a walker’s paradise – if you’re feeling energetic, try the spectacular Watersmeet circuit, or for something new why not give a geocaching trail a go. For a unique coastal walk, follow the path from Lynton to the iconic Valley of Rocks, famous for its unusual geology and intrepid goats!

 

To learn more about the area, visit the Lyn and Exmoor Museum and discover the devastating 1952 Lynmouth flood, or call into the newly refurbished Lynmouth Pavilion to make the most of their seasonal talks and family activity programme – from rockpool rambles to stained glass workshops! The Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, powered solely by water, offers a unique and exciting way to travel between the two towns, whilst boat trips run from Lynmouth Quay offering visitors a fantastic opportunity to explore the coast and the chance to get up close to the seabirds native to the area.
