The Valley of the Rocks on The North Devon Coast at Lynton

Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Lynton

Lynton lies on a rocky stretch of the North Devon coast in the Exmoor National Park. Perched atop a steep, wooded valley, it has spectacular views of the rocky shore and the neighbouring village of Lynmouth below. The Rivers West Lyn and East Lyn tumble past Holiday cottages in Lynton on their way to the sea, and the sheer cliff-face that separated Lynton from Lynmouth is scaled by a water-powered cliff railway – the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Various footpaths between the two villages provide far-reaching views across the Bristol Channel, but at least one ride on the railway is a must on self-catering holidays in Lynton.

The South West Coast Path runs past Lynton, heading east toward the ancient fishing village of Porlock Weir and west toward Ilfracombe and Combe Martin – both charming resorts with beaches and plenty of independent businesses to explore. Another place you won’t want to miss during your stay in a holiday cottage in Lynton is the Valley of the Rocks, where feral goats are often seen scrambling over spectacular rock formations. Lynton is known for its fine architecture, including several Victorian hotels and homes that cling to the valley’s steep sides. St Mary’s Church stands in the town centre, with a tower dating back to the 13th century. Lynton is easily explored by foot, with a variety of independent businesses to peruse. There are galleries where paintings by local artists are exhibited, Lyn Candles, an antique shop, and a small cinema, which is housed in a historic stone building on Lee Road. The windswept moors, pastures and woods of Exmoor are a paradise for outdoor pursuits, where wild ponies and deer are often spotted. A scenic drive westward from Lynton, the sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde are glorious spots for surfing and sunbathing.
