Situation And Amenities

The twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are where Exmoor meets the sea, and are affectionately known as 'England's Little Switzerland'. This part of North Devon, on the edge of the Exmoor National Park is now very accessible and the North Devon Link Road A361 joins the M5 Motorway network at Tiverton (Junction 27). There are intercity trains to Barnstaple via Exeter or Tiverton and also an airport at Exeter. Both Lynton and Lynmouth have a good range of amenities including local shops, restaurants, cafés, museum, town hall and primary school, not to mention the beach and sea front itself. Barnstaple is approximately 20 miles and as the regional centre, houses the area's main shopping, business and commercial venues. North Devon's famous coastline with its excellent range of safe and sandy beaches provides numerous water sport opportunities and walking country in abundance. Croyde, Ilfracombe, Saunton and Woolacombe are all within 30/40 minutes by car and Exmoor is also easily accessible, in fact, many of the walks can be taken directly from the front door, notably, the start of the Watersmeet Walk and to Countisbury.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 storeys and currently run as a bed & breakfast establishment and tea garden, but could just as easily be a private principal residence, or a second home.
