“my favorite holiday in england.”
Reviewed May 27, 2009

i have just been for a weeks holiday to lynmouth, it was the most wonderful place. the people were friendly and it was so clean.
we had dinner in a place called fish on the harbour i have never eaten such wonderful fresh food at such a good price.
there were wonderful walks to do, and it was so beautiful, my jaw was on the floor the whole time.

we stayed in a cottage call the hideaway, which was perfect, again very clean and furnished to such a high standared good quality.

we hired bikes and rode up on exmore well worth doing had such a giggle.

devon was amazing.

“Love Lynmouth Love Life”
Reviewed May 14, 2007

This part of Exmoor is an area of incomparable beauty.
Lynmouth made popular in Victorian times during which it became affectionately known as Little Switzerland.
Surrounded on each side by high steeply sloping cliffs hugging the sides of the wooded River Lyn valley, Lynmouth is stunningly beautiful.

Sweeping valleys nestle between spectacularly dramatic hills and cliffs, rivers and tumbling waterfalls, deep wooded valleys create an outstandingly magnificent and charming place, they create an ideal place to take a short break away from the stresses and strains of modern life.

Lynton & Lynmouth is the 'Walking Capital of Exmoor', there is the nearby Valley of the Rocks, a boulder strewn valley on the coast a short walk from the village. There is Watersmeet just a short walk inland up the East Lyn valley to where East Lyn river and Hoar Oak Water meet. The steepness of the valley sides of the East Lyn River has to be seen to be believed.

Walk up Countisbury Hill with stunning views along the coast, walk on to the lighthouse at Foreland Point where just off-shore is an underwater marine turbine.

Then there is the marvellous Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, opened in 1890 it is a unique water powered cliff railway whereby 2 lift cars are connected via a continuous cable . Water discarded from the lower car, causes the heavier top car to decend to the bottom.

Lynmouth is on a heritage coast in Exmoor National Park, and while words and pictures can only tell part of the story, a visit to Lynmouth for a few days away from it all can be very very rewarding indeed.
