Lynmouth

UK travel information

Lynmouth is a beautiful quaint village in the county Devon, England, on the north edge of Exmoor and straddles the confluence of the West Lyn and East Lyn rivers. Amongst the stunning scenery in the heart of Exmoor, the smallest National Park in Britain is a combination of tree-clad cliffs, sheltered bays and sweeping moorland.

Lynmouth also features an attractive harbour where you can enjoy fish and chips whilst overlooking the beautiful countryside. The village is also home to the famous Cliff Railway, which stands at a height of 500 feet and is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture.
