Historic, charming and characterful twin resort on the spectacular North Devon coast linked by an elegant water powered cliff railway.

The twin town of Lynton & Lynmouth are situated on the North Devon coast approximately 18 miles East of Ilfracombe. Lynmouth with its picturesque Harbour is nestles below some of the highest sea cliffs in England. The East and West Lyn rivers, which wind their way to Lynmouth down the two Lyn valley’s have created some of the most spectacular scenery you could ever wish to find. These rivers were the cause of so much devastation during the flood of 1952, but now only seem to give pleasure and enjoyment to our many visitors each year. Lynmouth also has many Gift shops restaurants and pubs and for those, whom are a little more energetic some fantastic walks with views that will take your breath away.


Lynton which is perched high above Lynmouth (500ft), has its own Town Hall and Museum, you will also find local shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Just a short walk from Lynton centre you will find the Valley of Rocks and it’s famous goats, a great way to while away an afternoon or morning exploring all the footpaths, wildlife and fantastic views as far as the eye can see up and down the Bristol Channel. On a clear day you will even see the South Wales coast.


Connecting the twin villages is the Famous Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway built by the Victorians. Still worked by water and opened over a hundred years ago, it was originally built to carry goods brought into harbour by ship and also tourists up to Lynton. Today it is a tourist attraction and plays an integral part of the economy of Lynton & Lynmouth carrying in excess of 300 thousand people each year.
