Location: The free car park I am suggesting is called Barna Barrow car park. This is on the A39 above Lynmouth towards Porlock. Coming from Lynmouth pass through Countisbury and the Blue Ball Inn continuing uphill to cross a cattle grid. Turn immediately into the car park on the left and park here.
OS Grid ref: SS 752 486
Description: This car park offers various paths towards Foreland Point where you can find grassy places with great sea views to enjoy a picnic. There are occasional seats overlooking Lynmouth which might suit.
