Activities/Attractions: Lynmouth is a quiet, picturesque harbour village where the rivers of the East and West Lyn join to meet the sea. It has the second highest tides in the world, which are sometimes quite spectacular.

Whitewashed cottages and shops backed by the dramatic hills and valleys of Exmoor meet the rugged coastline forming the highest sea cliffs in England. Its spectacular beauty inspired famous literary figures such as Wordsworth, Coleridge and Blackmore.

Summer visitors come here to take boat trips along the Exmoor Coast and to explore the surrounding wooded valleys with waterfalls. From the North Devon cliffs, you can see some of the greatest views in the West Country, looking across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast.

The famous Cliff Railway joins Lynmouth to its twin village, Lynton, set in a hanging valley 500 feet above. The area has for many years been known as "England's Little Switzerland" and has inspired poets including Shelley and Southey. Riverside Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore Exmoor.

  • A short car or bus trip will take you to the heart of the moor where heather-clad hillsides, steep wooded valleys and sparkling rivers are home to Exmoor Ponies, Foxes, and Wild Red Deer
  • The Doone Valley, made famous by R D Blackmore's novel Lorna Doone, is one of many delightful haunts within the Exmoor National Park
  • There are regular boat trips from Lynmouth harbour along the heritage coast which cruise past nesting colonies of Razorbills, Guillemots and the Gulls as they soar by the highest sea cliffs in England
  • Of the many pleasant woodland and riverside walks for both the casual and serious walker, Watersmeet, managed by the National Trust, is a leisurely forty minutes away alongside the East Lyn River
  • There are also hill top walks with awe-inspiring views across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. Visit the 'Valley of Rocks' with its towering rock formations, formed during the ice age and its resident herd of wild goats
