There is a wide variety of activities on offer for lovers of the outdoors, with endless footpaths through woodlands, along rivers and across some of the highest cliffs in England. The cycling enthusiast is also well catered for, with trails that range from a gentle meander through the countryside to a challenging track across tough mud-splattered terrain. There's also the opportunity to visit the spectacular coastal region with some amazing spots for rockpooling.

Exmoor Zoo

The award-winning attraction in its beautiful setting is a brilliant day out for all ages. The zoo is home to a very wide variety of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and arthropods with regular talks, feeding and handling sessions throughout the day. You can also find out more about the Exmoor beast, a legendary creature which may just be a black leopard, puma or another big cat.

Lynton Cinema

This cinema is situated in a former Methodist Chapel that is a grade II listed building. Now with full Dolby Digital sound, the cinema shows the latest blockbusters with two films generally being shown per day. The cinema has around 70 very comfortable seats with plenty of all-important legroom. 

Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway

This famous funicular cliff railway is the highest and steepest completely water powered railway in the world. Opened in 1890, the historic cliff railway connects the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth and provides spectacular coastal views. Above the lower station at 500 feet is the grade II listed Cliff Top Cafe, which will provide you with tea and coffee whilst you take in one of the best views you'll ever see. 

Lynton and Barnstaple Railway

Board the traditional train at Woody Bay Stations and take a journey back in time with this wonderful and unique two-mile experience through spectacular countryside. The train runs all the way to Killington Lane Halt where you can disembark and visit the scenic village of Parracombe. Here you can pop into the nearest recommended pub, the Fox & Goose – an imposing Victorian building with a surprisingly quaint interior – or venture a little further to the Hunters Inn at Heddon’s Mouth where the traditional home-cooked dining continues to delight both locals and tourists.
