things to do in the winter
Winter in Lynton & Lynmouth is a sleepy old affair, many of the main attractions begin their hibernation until the Spring, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do.

The captivating and expansive Valley of Rocks welcomes everyone throughout all seasons and looks particularly splendid in the bleak midwinter.
