Situation And Amenities - 'THE VIEW FROM THE BALCONY WAS BEYOND EVERYTHING I HAVE SEEN' C.S. Lewis Lynton August 1925.
This sentiment perfectly sums up the 'wow' factor of this development which is idyllically positioned on North Devon's breath taking coastline, 500 feet above sea level with glorious panoramic sea views over the Bristol Channel towards the Welsh coastline. If this was not enough, the building lies literally adjacent to the South West coast path and Lynton town centre is close by offering a very good selection of pubs, restaurants, shops and tea rooms, as does its twin village of Lynmouth, not only accessed by road but also by the famed water powered Victorian cliff railway. These villages are surrounded by Exmoor National Park and offer some of North Devon's most spectacular coastline with its high rugged cliffs and almost 270 sqm of magnificent and protected landscape spanning Devon and Somerset. Within easy motoring distance access can be gained to the glorious sandy surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Saunton, the latter also offering championship golf courses. The Regional centre of Barnstaple is about 40 minutes by car and offers the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues, as well as North Devon District hospital. The North Devon Link Road (A361) is also about 40 minutes away and joins the M5 motorway network at Tiverton (Junction 27) with Tiverton Parkway rail station offering a fast service of trains to London Paddington in just over 2 hours. The nearest International airports are at Bristol and Exeter.
