Things To Do Near Lynton & Lynmouth

There are plenty of things to do near Lynton and Lynmouth if you’re on the hunt for the best that Exmoor has to offer! Hop on the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway which connects the two towns and witness some of Exmoor most breathtaking panoramic views. 

Just down the coast lies the Valley of Rocks, a fascinating U-shaped dry valley that is parallel to the sea. It lies about ½ mile to the west of Lynton and is part of the South West Coast Path. It is well known for its feral goats that roam freely and often quite hair-raisingly on the jagged cliff edges! There is a tea room serving a range of refreshments and a picnic area. It is also home to probably the most idyllic setting for a cricket club ground. 

Watersmeet House is a former fishing lodge located in Lynmouth and used today as an information centre, tea room and shop by the National Trust, who have owned it since 1996. The fishing lodge, which dates from approximately 1832, stands at the bottom of a deep gorge at the confluence of the East Lyn River and Hoar Oak Water. The site has been a tea garden since 1901. Watersmeet House is the starting-off point for some 40 miles (approximately 65 km) of woodland, streamside and seaside walks.
