Walkers are welcome


Lynmouth can be reached by road, by the cliff railway or by walking down the steep zig-zag path.  The path is accessed from Church Hill and has bridges crossing the track of the Cliff Railway.  

The pretty harbour town of Lynmouth is steeped in history including tales of smugglers in former times.  There are gift shops, an art studio and gallery, restaurants and pubs and a pebble beach.  The Lynmouth Flood Memorial Hall provides information about the devastating flood of 1952 which destroyed buildings and in which 34 people were drowned.

Glen Lyn Gorge

The gorge of the West Lyn river is an interesting place to visit with attractions for all the family.  The river, which added to the destruction in 1952, is now used to generate hydroelectricity.
