Whether planning a family getaway or a trip with close friends, this charming cottage won't disappoint. Nestled within the West Lyn Valley on the edge of Exmoor National Park, the country home is only a ten-minute walk from the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth. You'll find the cottage down a small lane with no through access, meaning complete peace and quiet for you and your loved ones. Imagine sitting outside in the terraced garden listening to river sounds or starting your day with an alfresco breakfast on the patio. Restaurants, bars, and shops are reachable along the Lyn Way, as are the famous cliff railway and pebbly Blacklands Beach. For sandier shores and surfing beaches, Woolacombe and Croyde are less than an hour away, or you may also hop in the car and head inland to discover Exmoor's traditional villages. With so many scenic walking routes nearby – including The South West Coast Path – you can ditch the car for most of your trip. Step outside and head towards The Valley of Rocks for some breathtaking views.

About Exmoor

Straddling Devon and Somerset, Exmoor might be one of the UK’s smaller national parks, but you’d never know it when you’re there. Exmoor’s 700 square kilometres take in endless moors clad in a purple sea of soft heather, babbling rivers, and sheer cliffs that drop into the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
