Welcome to the walking capital of exmoor

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.

From the dramatic and rugged coastline and open moors to secluded river valleys and wooded cleaves, it’s amazing to find such a rich and varied landscape within this small, yet outstandingly beautiful corner of England.

With several hundred miles of footpaths, tracks and trails crisscrossing the rolling hills of Exmoor and North Devon, such an opportunity to experience this unique backdrop must not be missed.

Lynton & Lynmouth provides everything for the enthusiastic walker – top quality accommodation, well-signposted routes, informative maps and walking guides and shops offering outdoor clothes and accessories as well as excellent public transport links and local amenities.
