Romantic Exmoor

Fall in love with Lynton & Lynmouth

The Perfect Place For Couples

When you find ‘your special place’ it’s one of those moments that take your breath away and makes your heartbeat just that little bit faster.

The charming and historic towns of Lynton & Lynmouth can be one of those places. 

Lynton is nestled high in the cliffs overlooking the Bristol Channel along the North Devon coast and offers spectacular sea views. The delightful harbour town of Lynmouth sits serenely below at the mouth of the cascading waters of the River Lyn.

Imagine walking along the winding South West Coastal Path, with its breathtaking views, to the beautiful and ancient Valley of Rocks. The perfect place to throw down a rug to enjoy a picnic, glass of bubbly or a flask of your favourite tea. Sitting peacefully watching the sunset or sunrise in the Valley of Rocks can be quite magnificent and awe-inspiring.

It’s easy to see how world-renowned writers and poets like Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth and R. D. Blackmoor found their inspiration for romance in Exmoor. Once you start wandering amongst the rolling hills, along sheer cliffs and alongside the tumbling rivers of Watersmeet and the Doone Valley, time itself seems to stand still.
