The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth


600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway, powered by water and which is well worth a ride.
Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall.

There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms


Visited you in the summer and were amazed at the standard of the facilities, and how well laid out and planted the whole site is. We have told everyone we know to visit you and can't wait to come back next year. Very dog friendly camping too, which is what we were looking for. Ellie, Mark, and Archie Dog, Plymouth.


I'd totally echo earlier comments,

However if you plan on walking to Mortehoe avoiding the roads buy an OS map it is worth it.

It is fairly pricey, £30 a night isn't too far off Travel lodge money.

However, if it is family camping you want, then this is perfect with a variety of pitches from open plan to secluded 'cubby' holes (although large).

Attention to detail such as someone coming to the pitch and explaining things, workers constantly buzzing around fixing / cleaning / mowing the effort is evident.
