Find the Perfect Walk

Located on the stunning North Devon coast and surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Exmoor National Park. It’s easy to see the appeal of Lynton & Lynmouth as a top walking holiday destination and why the area is referred to as “Little Switzerland

The Lyn Valley, and the entire North Devon coast, is enlaced with beautiful walks and trails of varying lengths and challenges.  

Three of our most popular walks are;

  • Hollerday Hill – a glorious combination of woodland walk and coastal trail, with magnificent views in all directions.

  • Valley of Rocks – an iconic valley with spectacular coastal scenery like no other

  • Watersmeet – a quintessential walking experience through the Watersmeet Gorge along the raging East Lyn River to Watersmeet House, and beyond.
