Exmoor is an area of outstanding natural beauty, perfect for walkers, artists, photographers and all those who enjoy peace and solitude.

Take a ride from Lynton to Lynmouth on the water powered venicular cliff railway whilst enjoying stunning views of the North Devon Coastline as you glide up and down the 862 foot length of track; from Lynton perched 500 feet above to Lynmouth nestling at the foot of the cliffs.

Alternative routes to Lynmouth are either a short trip by car down Lynmouth Hill or you could take a stroll down Mars Hill. Lynmouth is also situated on the South West Coast Path walk.

Lynmouth is a picturesque village with its own harbour. There are places to eat and drink, including fish and chip shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There are places of interest such as an art gallery, brass rubbing centre and gift shops.

The countryside around Watersmeet near Lynton is one of those special areas of deeply wooded coombes, with sparkling waterways and peace and quiet even in the busiest times of the year. Close by is The National Trust tea and gift shop, once a fishing lodge. Fishing is still a popular pastime in the area.

The Valley of Rocks is a popular tourist spot situated half a mile west of Lynton. It is accessible by road and a scenic footpath ‘The North Walk’ from Lynton. Formed in the Ice Age with spectacular rock formations. Herds of wild goats and Exmoor Ponies can often be seen.

Walking, hiking, cycling, horse riding, painting and photography are popular activities on Exmoor. Many of the views are breathtaking. The moor becomes a carpet of blooming heathers around the end of August and the beginning of September.

There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen on Exmoor, and those with a keen eye may be lucky enough to spot one of the many herds of red deer that grace the moorland and surrounding areas.

A little easier to find are the herds of Exmoor ponies that roam freely.

Lorna Doone valley was made famous by Richard Blackmore's novel, "Lorna Doone". which is set in and around Malmesmead and Oare.

Also mentioned in the novel is Robbers Bridge. This is a beautiful spot for a picnic often captured in many different mediums by local and visiting artists.

Built as a summer retreat in 1890 for a wealthy London bankers family, the house is totally hidden in almost 3 acres of gardens and natural woodland yet just a whisper away from Lynton and Lynmouth.

It is a perfect retreat for those seeking peace, solitude, and seclusion, but it is only a short stroll to all of the area's attractions, such as Valley of the Rocks, the beautiful waterfalls of Watersmeet and the famous 'Cliff Railway' which takes you to the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth.
