Lynton and Lynmouth

The stretch of coast overlooked by Lynton and occupied by Lynmouth is a spectacular combination of sweeping moorland, high rugged tree clad cliffs and enticing sheltered bays.
Nine miles west of Porlock, the Victorian resort of Lynton perches above a lofty gorge with spectacular views over the sea. This beautiful area of North Devon has high cliffs, hills, quaint cottages and access to the inner wilderness of Exmoor with its deer and ponies.
Lynton is connected by cliff railway with Lynmouth, 500 feet below at the junction and estuary of the East and West Lyn rivers. Located on the South West Coast Path, it's also a great base for setting out on walks. 
The two towns are connected by the famous water powered Victorian Cliff Railway.
