Lynton (along with adjoining Lynmouth) makes an excellent destination for short breaks and holidays in Devon. Lazy days can be spend down by the harbour, or walking along the coast, whilst the museum, model railway and cliff railway are all sure to keep you occupied on a more active day. Don’t forget to visit beauty spots like Middleham Gardens, the Valley of Rocks and Glen Lyn Gorge.

Your guide to Lynton

Lynton at a glance:
  • Surrounded by natural beauty, including the Valley of Rocks and Glen Lyn Gorge.
  • Set around a peaceful harbour.
  • Famed for its cliff railway.
  • A picture-perfect place to stay in the Exmoor National Park.
  • Situated on the South West Coast Path.

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.

With your camera by the side, experience all of the beauty of the Devon countryside and of its rocky coastline. Meanwhile, more formal attractions come in the form of the town’s museum and model railway, both of which can easily fill a few hours. More commercial attractions can be found further afield, but the beauty of Lynton lies in the town’s simplicity and in its calm and peaceful atmosphere. If you’re not a fan of busy beaches and of attractions with high ticket prices then Lynton is perhaps a better choice than other Devon seaside towns.

For those that like eating out, Lynton doesn’t disappoint. Cliff-top cafés overlooking Lynmouth and the beach make great places to stop for a snack or a drink, whilst Lynton’s traditional English pubs serve a wide selection of meals and beverages with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. On days when the weather isn’t suitable for a picnic, there can be nothing better than a traditional pub meal by a roaring open fire, served along with West Country ales or ciders.

Relax in your Lynton hotel room at the end of the day, and enjoy beautiful views of one of the most exceptional landscapes in the UK. There can be few better experiences than a relaxing holiday or short break by the awe-inspiring Valley of Rocks.
