The property

A superb penthouse with outstanding sea views nestling in the delightful Exmoor Park town of Lynton. The apartment has been styled with a touch of luxury throughout and offers wonderful accommodation for a family getaway to the North Devon coast. Guests can access the penthouse either by stairs or the lift which arrives outside its front door. Upon entering the property, you are greeted to a well-presented hallway, oozing a sense of tranquility from the outset. The three large bedrooms and two bathrooms are all off this hallway, while the living areas are up a small staircase in a bright open-plan loft room above. The apartment hosts three elegant bedrooms including one which can be configured either as a super-king or twin room, the sizeable master room with king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and sofa overlooking the bay, and a second king-size bedroom which boasts spectacular sea views. The en-suite bathroom includes a bath with overhead shower, while a second bathroom along the hall features a walk-in shower. Follow the carpeted staircase up and you emerge into a delightful open-plan living area, decorated in a neutral colour palette, with comfortable furnishings and all the necessities required for a relaxing stay. There are wonderful sea views from each of the three small balconies, while internally, the exposed beams reinforce the loft-style feel of this contemporary area. At one end there is a well-equipped kitchen, with electric hob and cooker, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a flexible dining area with a table that can comfortably seat six or be reduced to suit four. After dinner, guests can unwind in the cosy seating area, where comfortable sofas nestle by a fabulous chaise longue, and watch the TV/DVD or simply marvel at the view.

In 1925, the view from this building compelled the author CS Lewis to write: “The view from the balcony was beyond everything I have ever seen,” and it remains spectacular and unspoilt to this day. While staying here, you and your family can take a ride on the highest water-powered railway in the world and walk the famous Valley of the Rocks, both just a few minutes’ walk from the apartment.

While Penthouse Lynmouth Bay is in walking distance of numerous pubs, restaurants and shops, its unique location means it is a quiet and incredibly peaceful place to stay.

Half an hour’s drive will allow guests to reach the larger seaside towns of Ilfracombe and Minehead as well as the beautiful sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, not to mention the gardens, stately homes and wonderful countryside of North Devon. The Penthouse Lynmouth Bay is an outstanding property and an ideal tranquil retreat for the entire family.

About the location


Ilfracombe 18 miles; Minehead 18 miles.

Lynton and its twin Lynmouth are nestled within Exmoor National Park on the North Devon coast. Lynton and Lynmouth enjoy one of the prettiest and most unspoilt coastal locations in England, offering breathtaking scenery and some of the best opportunities to admire the sheer rugged beauty of Exmoor’s coast and countryside. Great heritage, cosy fireside pubs, tasty local food and 'green’ credentials make North Devon an inspiring place to stay. There is a wealth of wildlife including magnificent red deer, the rare Exmoor pony, wild birds and rare butterflies. There are plenty of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, golf, walking, surfing and fly fishing on the beautiful Lyn river. Exmoor National Park is home to some of the darkest skies in the country so it's a great place to gaze at the stars. Lynton has a fabulous range of shops, pubs and cafes where you can wander between the picturesque cottages and meet the friendly locals. There are a number of attractions for the family including Exmoor Zoo, Lynmouth’s water-powered cliff railway, and the Owl and Hawk Centre. Experience one of England’s last remaining tranquil areas - there is something for everyone during a stay at Lynton and Lynmouth.
