The cottage gives beautiful views of the hill and sea which is great. There is full of greenery around and the location of the cottage is advantageous as it serves as good base to explore all areas of Devon.

About the neighbourhood
Superb walks are right on the doorstep with the famous Lynton and Lynmouth Cliffe Railway only a few minutes walk away linking this lovely village with the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth. A stunning area for walking, riding, fishing or simply sightseeing. The perfect location to stay to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Valley of Rocks, Watersmeet and the South West Coast Path.

Lynton has some lovely gift shops, and tea rooms and plenty of good pubs and restaurants for eating out. There is also a superb craft centre for buying those lovely holiday gifts. Lynmouth also has some great present-buying shops and lovely pubs and eating places.

Julia Bradbury's favourite walk is to Watersmeet which is a great days walking and sightseeing.
Getting around
Whether you arrive by car or on public transport, you will be able to explore the area on foot if you wish as the area is overflowing with delightful walks and activities.
There is a bus and train station at Barnstaple and the local bus service is good from Lynton to Barnstaple for a nice shopping trip or explore.
There is a railway station at Barnstaple too where a trip to Exeter on the Tarka Line is a lovely thing to do.
By car a lovely day out is to Woolacombe Beach the UK's No 1 beach which is about 45 mins away. The National Trust property of Arlington Court is lovely for a day out and is only a 25 min car ride. Lots of lovely places to head to perhaps with a picnic like the Doone Valley, the Valley of Rocks or Watersmeet.
Car not needed
How to get there
By car along the A39. By Bus from Barnstaple.
There is a bus and train station in Barnstaple which is our nearest large town. It takes about 50 mins by bus to Lynton but is a good regular service.
Guests will receive a map of the location of Lyn Holiday Apartments and it is a good idea to use this as SatNav can be a little misleading here.
