Enjoy glorious sunsets from your pitch at this Devonshire hilltop campsite.

Lynton Club campsite sits above the stunning Exmoor coast and is a stone’s throw from the genteel Victorian seaside resort of Lynton. This peaceful and secluded campsite is a rural heaven with beautiful views extending over the surrounding countryside and for some, panoramic views across to Wales.

The area around the campsite is a walker’s paradise, with many walks to be enjoyed direct from site. At Lynton and Lynmouth the South West Coast Path, Two Moors Way, Tarka Trail and Samaritans Way SW meet up providing many more walking opportunities including exploring the Exmoor National Park.

For days out don’t miss Watersmeet, one of Britain’s deepest river gorges. Enjoy a woodland walk and take refreshment at the National Watersmeet House. Glen Lyn Gorge south of Lynton offers a mix of waterfalls and pools plus a water power exhibition. Animal attractions include Exmoor Zoo, Coombe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park or take a boat from Lynmouth Harbour and get close to nesting birds on England’s highest cliffs.

I've lived in the West country most of my life but never visited Lynton/Lynmouth nor this club...

This review is for Lynton

I've lived in the West country most of my life but never visited Lynton/Lynmouth nor this club site. The area is stunningly beautiful, and the site is well positioned if you like to walk, provided you can cope with the hills, some of which are VERY steep, including the walking route into Lynton (unsurprisingly not suitable for vehicles). Alternatively, there's a good daytime bus service to Lynton & Barnstaple, stopping about half mile from the site, with very helpful drivers. If you buy a little map from the site shop, it has the bus stops marked on it, and the code so you can text to find out when the next buses are at that stop. Very useful! Parts of the site have views of the sea, but the downside of that is of course that the wind often blows, though while I was there, surprisingly, not much. The site wifi is excellent, (something to do with that hill again?) and the Wardens were friendly and helpful, just as you come to expect with Club Wardens, and kept a shop well stocked with essentials (otherwise you need to drive somewhere). The only negative aspects were that the site could do with a bit of money spending on it really. The facilities block looks like an original one from the 60s with ill-fitting crittal windows, and though nothing was actually broken, & had obviously been freshly painted fairly recently, it could really do with some upgrading. The cubicles were quite cramped, and the block unheated. I imagine the Wardens find it difficult to keep clean too. On the plus side, I much appreciated having showers with adjustable temperatures, so if upgrading means losing those, I'll stick with the old block! All in all I had a lovely stay, and will probably be back.
