A dramatic coastline

The Lynton and Lynmouth coastline is as unique as it is dramatic. The steep cliff upon which Lynton stands high, falling sharply to the shingle beach and harbour of Lynmouth below. The East and West Lyn Rivers tumble through the wooded valley as waterfalls, meeting on the rocky shore before ambling out to sea.

The two destinations are linked by both a steep road and the sensational Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, which dates back to Victorian times. There are plenty of shops, a historic cinema, restaurants and pubs, including The Rising Sun in Lynmouth which has terrific harbour views.

The ancient Valley of Rocks, where wild goats roam craggy cliffs overlooking the sea, is a must-visit, as is nearby Woody Bay, accessed by a winding track which is well worth the walk down.
