Lynton and Lynmouth, Devon

Lynton and Lynmouth, Devon


Lynton and Lynmouth are everything that is good about Devon. Stunning scenery, connected by a totally water powered train.

How did we get there?

We were on route to the Eden Project in Cornwall during our whistle-stop tour of England, Wales and Scotland and had travelled down from Dunster Castle in Somerset where we had enjoyed a wonderful time in that Nation Trust property.

Where did we stay?

We had based ourselves at Treetops Camping site, which gave us easy access to Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Lynton and Lynmouth. If I had had more time, it is also ideal for Woolacombe, but this was a whistle-stop tour so that will have to wait for next time.

What was the climate like?

The day at Lynton and Lynmouth was superb as the sun came out. Compared to the day at Ilfracombe, where raindrops fought with the with sunshine, this was perfect.

What was the plan for Lynton and Lynmouth?

I think the easiest way to enjoy these two villages is to park in the large car park in Lynton. It is at the furthest point to the north and then walk back past the galleries and shops to the pathway to the water powered train on the cliff top. You then can decide on your fitness level and either walk down into Lynmouth or take the water powered train, which is a unique experience.

Once in Lynmouth, there are two small streets of galleries, fudge and restaurants to enjoy. The park is lovely and has excellent views.

The gallery I particularly like is Maurice Bishop on Riverside Road. The range of paintings is superb.

End of the day.

Once you have seen everything you want to see, you need to get your car at the top of the hill. So, you can either walk up over 700 ft. just over 200 metres and watch the water powered train as you ascend. Or take the train and wave to others walking up. Either way, you will have a great time.
