Exploring North Devon Together

If your holidaying in North Devon to enjoy the great outdoors then exploring the vast moors and wooded valleys of Exmoor is a must.

The beautiful and ancient Valley of Rocks and Watersmeet are quite literally on the doorstep of Lynton & Lynmouth and offer miles of walks and cascading rivers to explore. They’re the perfect places for a family picnic.

Want to see a little more? How about exploring the moors on horseback, bike or a jeep safari? It’s an incredible way to see the very best of Exmoor’s landscape and unique wildlife, including wild ponies, red deer, rare butterflies and our elusive otters.

If you’re longing to enjoy a lazy day on a beach then look no further.

North Devon has some of the best beaches and they’re just a short drive from Lynton & Lynmouth. Perfect for sunbathing, paddling, swimming, bodyboarding or surfing.
