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.
