Bay View House
Lynmouth near Barnstaple, Devon
Lynmouth 1 mile. This delightful, imposing Edwardian house occupies a cliffside position, and sits in a beautiful, secluded location, close to Lynmouth's harbour and town in North Devon. The interior of this Lynmouth cottage combines elegant period features with modern furnishings to create a warm and inviting base, ideal for any large group. Most of the rooms benefit from magnificent sea views that stretch out across the Bristol Channel towards Wales, and with four spacious bedrooms with en-suite facilities, and a further single bedroom on the second floor, this Lynmouth cottage provides an excellent base for a family gathering by the sea. There are two sitting rooms at this cottage in Lynmouth, a large kitchen with dining area and French doors that open onto a sunny balcony and terraced garden, from where guests can sit for hours watching the busy seaside town below. From your Lynmouth cottage you can take a road that leads down to the pub, village and harbour, a fifteen minute walk on the way down, but much longer on the return back up, so stop to catch your breath and admire the outstanding views! There is private parking available at your Lynmouth cottage, and plenty of attractions in the immediate area, meaning that you can take a rest from the driver's seat for a few days and explore the region on foot. Take a ride to Lynton on the water-operated cliff railway; the views on the train journey are truly breathtaking, and Lynton has a variety of gift shops, tea rooms and restaurants to sample. A walk to the spectacular setting of the valley of rocks, which is about a mile walk from Lynton, where you may meet the resident herd of goats is a must. Enjoy a stroll along the River Lyn valley from Lynmouth, one of Britain's deepest river gorges, to Watersmeet where there is a NT tea room and visitor centre. This fabulous cottage sitting in a dramatic setting is sure to inspire, and is not to be missed.

About the location
Minehead 17 miles; Ilfracombe 19 miles.
Set directly on the coast at the foot of the Exmoor hills, this charming village draws visitors from near and far. Quaint Lynmouth sits between the river, shore and hills and offers small restaurants, tea rooms and inns. There are plenty of things to see and do, including a unique water-powered cliff railway with outstanding views, which links Lynmouth with neighbouring Lynton, the pretty harbour town where the fisherman’s cottages creep down towards the quay, and the distinctive Rhenish Tower sits proudly on the harbour wall. The National Trust own nearby Arlington Court and Watersmeet, a stunning riverside walk, and within the National Park boundary, the hills of Exmoor drop down to the sea where they shadow the Exmoor Heritage Coast. Romantic Porlock, home of Lorna Doone, is just 16 miles to the east, the coastal resorts of Minehead and Ilfracombe are both within 20 miles, with the hills of Exmoor dotted all around, and there are good shopping opportunities in Barnstaple, 20 miles away.
