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.

Great site to discover Exmoor, North Devon and the surrounding countryside and within easy reach of the scenic North Devon coastline. Just a five minute drive or 15 minute walk to the lovely villages of Lynton/Lynnmouth. Highly recommended!!

This review is for Lynton

Whilst on site a fellow camper suffered a serious fall en route to the toilet block in the late evening. She clearly did not see the first (of three) concrete step leading down to the toilets (Gents side) and fell forward down the steps onto her face necessitating a hospital visit and curtailment of her holiday. The edges of the steps are not marked in any way and the steps are triangular. It's very understandable how she could have missed seeing the first step at night, even though the area is illuminated. I suggest the front edges of the steps should be painted - e.g. yellow - to make them more obvious, as is commonplace throughout the country. That said, all in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay on the site and will probably visit again. There is lots to do in the area - Dunster and its castle are a must - and the surrounding countryside is lovely. For a first class meal at a reasonable price try Village Inn in Lynmouth

This review is for Lynton

we enjoyed our stay at Lynton, very rural and quiet which is what we like. The assistant manager and his wife (sorry didn't know your names) were lovely friendly staff. The showers etc are dated but kept immaculate by the staff, The only moan we have is the massive field next to the site is reserved for children to play in only. It was not used by any child in the 8 days we were there, they also had a playground with swings , slide etc for them to play on. With NO dog walk on site at all and dogs not being allowed to use ANY part of the massive field, we found again as with many sites like members with dogs are second class members.
