The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

 

600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway, powered by water and which is well worth a ride.
Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall.

There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms

 


We came here in August 2004 really loved it even though the weather was bad. So we are booked to come back on 26th August 2006 to meet our friends who are already here. Really looking forward to it, hope the weather stays dry. Dawn, Paul and Sam Gleed.

Lovely Campsite

This was our first camping experience as a family and I am so glad I chose this camp site to stay at, we were given a secluded patch to put our tent on (as requested) it was a great size and surrounded by trees (although this wasn't great in the evening if you want the sun, but that was a lesson learnt, to ask for a spot that gets sun in the evenings.)

It is so well looked after with very friendly staff, we stayed during the week and it was lovely and quiet but obviously got busier on the Friday night.

The Site, toilets and showers were very clean and had great family rooms.

The only problem I had was the showers, not being able to set the temperature yourself and having to either push a button or wave you hand in front of the sensor every few seconds, that was annoying and with little ones you need to be able to set the temperature of the shower.

Another toilet block at the top of the site would be good too, for those that are further away so you don't have to walk so far at night.

Its lovely and close just a 2 min drive down to the town and beach, wonderful beach close by, with the best fish and chips we have ever had at Fryers, and great ice cream and fudge plus sandwiches at Fudgies.

Over all a lovely place that I will be recommending to friends and family and look forward to using again soon!
