Hiding high up amongst the rolling hills of Exmoor and nuzzling the dramatic cliffscape of the North Devon coastline, Lynmouth Holiday retreat settles into the extraordinary backdrop overlooking Lynmouth bay and the gentle buzz of its harbourside town. Whether you’re visiting for the first time or looking to own your own holiday home on site to visit whenever you desire, it’s the perfect place to get away and reset amongst the expansive countryside of Exmoor.

The town of Lynmouth went from a tiny fishing village to a thriving Victorian tourist resort dubbed ‘Little Switzerland due to its rolling hills, sheer cliffs and cascading rivers. Whilst the World around may be ever changing, both Lynton & Lynmouth retain their vintage charm, frozen in the reminiscence of an earlier time, the towns are separated by the highest water powered funicular railway in the World and adjoin the infamous craggy cliffs of The Valley of Rocks.

If the surrounding area was anything to go by, the Retreat itself will certainly not disappoint, with its own dog walking meadow, abundant flora and fauna, spell binding bay views and the South West Coast path sat right on your doorstep, this Coast and Country Park offers an idyllic trip back to nature and simpler times. With its quaint meandering roads, lack of large supermarkets, enchanting hillside valleys and snippets of Victorian trinkets in the way of old cast iron street lamps and red post-boxes, (now turned into lending libraries), Lynmouth Holiday Retreat, like the surrounding area celebrates its enchanting history, natural beauty and varied landscapes at the very heart of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
