Lynmouth Harbour in North Devon

Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Lynmouth

The village of Lynmouth is located on the North Devon coast in the Exmoor National Park. It lies at the foot of a deep, wooded valley, where the rivers West Lyn and East Lyn tumble to the sea. Towering cliffs overlook a harbour and a long, pebbly shore. Lynmouth is connected to the neighbouring village of Lynton by a water-powered funicular railway that traverses the almost vertical cliff face between the two villages. Wander into the village from your holiday cottage in Lynmouth, and you will discover a historic centre with rows of old fishermen’s homes and a variety of independent shops. Overlooking the harbour, the Rising Sun is an atmospheric pub with a thatched roof and a reputation for excellent food.

There are a couple of groceries, art galleries, and gift shops to peruse, and the village’s museum is housed in a graceful stone cottage with exhibits on the area’s maritime and railway history. Self-catering holidays in Lynmouth are popular among walkers, with the renowned South West Coast Path running right through the village, east, toward Porlock, and west, toward Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. Walking at least a small stretch of the path, with spectacular views across the Bristol Channel, is highly recommended toward Wales. The Tarka Trail can also be joined on the doorstep of holiday cottages in Lynmouth, heading south into the green, unspoiled countryside of North Devon. The high, open moors and wooded valleys of the national park are also a paradise for outdoor pursuits, where wild ponies and deer are often spotted. With its fine Victorian architecture and dramatic views of Lynmouth and the surrounding coast, a wander around Lynton is also recommended, as is a visit to the pretty village of Porlock and the rocky beach at Porlock Weir. The sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are all a short, scenic drive westward.
