We visited this traction in the early morning and it was nice and quiet. The exhibition makes for an interesting 20 minutes, especially the great flood of 1952. You then walk a fairly easy trail leading to a beautiful waterfall. The trail has several points of interest. All in all a good place to spend an hour or so away... More

Visited Lynmouth late one afternoon and spotted this place. Returned a couple of days later. What a great little place. From reading about the lifeboat to understanding a bit more about global warming to the walk up the gorge. Some truly magnificent views of the waterfalls.

Glen Lyn Gorge has a combination of interesting displays about the power of water, and then a walk up the gorge to see this power in action. The walk is steep in places but worth the effort.

We walked round the gorge with our 3 dogs. Absolutely stunning with a fascinating history. Really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

The Glen Lyn Gorge provides a great insight into the 1952 disaster, with a very informative visitors centre. Within the grounds are numerous exhibits demonstrating the power of water & how it can be used to our advantage. There is a stunning walk up through the gorge, which for some maybe physically demanding. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful and scenic gorge, well worth paying the money to walk up. There are plenty of stunning views without too much challenge (my 3 year old made it). Water cannons and a mini generator add to the fun. Recommended.

We are regular visitors at the Glen Lyn Gorge and always choose to stay here when we visit Lynmouth. Whilst the gorge itself is a highly popular tourist attraction there are also a number of self-catering apartments available within this area. Nicely furnished, complete with log-burners and kitchen equipment and with the possibility of opening doors to join apartments together.... More

We wanted to travel through Exmoor (mainly to see the ponies) had a fantastic journey through Exmoor lots of twistie turning roads, at the end of the journey after a 25% hill decent our bikes needed to recover we pulled into Lynmouth. We spotted a huge water fountain, only £5.00 each to get in so good value. There were water... More

We stayed at one of the cottages,situated in the Glen Lyn Gorge. We were quite disappointed at the state of the cottage,it needs some attention. At £90.00 a night we do think the price is too much considering the condition of the holiday home.The staff at the main entrance were lovely and most helpful, the actual waterfall and gorge is...
