Lynton lynmouth cliff railwayThe small rural town of Lynton and coastal village of Lynmouth guarantee an escape to those wishing a complete change from the busy pace of modern life. It is impossible to rush in Lynton & Lynmouth. Set in the heart of Exmoor National Park the twin resorts are far from industry and commerce. It would be natural to assume that their appeal has relied solely on incomparable scenery and that that they have no claim to any remarkable happening in the past or indeed, the present. Take time to look a little closer, for they boast an impressive history that is not only diverse, but is surprising, fascinating, and most of all - notable.

The following is a short introduction to some of the many interesting features of the resorts. Even a short visit is certain to impress, but it is suggested a stay of at least two days is needed to explore unique Lynton & Lynmouth. Surrounded by magnificent scenery, the setting of Lynton and Lynmouth on the North Devon coastline is unequalled by any resort on top gear at lyntonEngland’s shore. The high ground of Exmoor falling to meet unusual ‘hog back’ cliffs (Visit the Cliff Railway) that plunge steeply into the sea provide a breathtaking backdrop to the rural communities nestling below. The Lyn Rivers that tumble through deep wooded valleys as a series of small waterfalls meet at Lynmouth and flow across a rocky shore to the open sea. A small harbour flanked by the famous Rhenish Tower hints that a herring trade once sustained the community. The small town of Lynton originally supported by sheep farming, stands high on the cliff above its sister village.
