Your guide to Lynton

A wonderful Devon holiday destination despite its small size, the quiet town of Lynton is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the region. Sitting above Lynmouth, and joined to it by the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, it’s a wonderfully peaceful place to stay on the edge of the Exmoor National Park.

How you spend your holiday is entirely up to you. Choose to relax on the beach, walk around the beautiful Middleham Gardens and enjoy gentle strolls by the harbour, or opt for an altogether more active experience with walks around Exmoor, visits to Glen Lyn Gorge and days spent in the rugged Valley of Rocks, where wild mountain goats roam free. The South West Coast Path passes through the town, providing yet another route to explore and to enjoy
