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.

Toilet blocks really do need updating.

This review is for Lynton

Toilet blocks really do need updating. There have been countless comments about them in reviews that are just being ignored. They are very clean but very old fashioned Rules needed in any aspect of life but good to remember we are on holiday and is there really a need to come over to our tent as exactly 11.02 pm and tell us to keep the noise down when the "noise" was one sentence to my husband as we tried to fill a glass of water to take to bed! The whole site is well laid out and well kept but rules seem to be plastered everywhere and you feel like the assistants are looking over everyone and waiting for rules to be broken. Why make a rule of toilet blocks are closed from 10.30 to 12.00. We are on holiday so just might like a lie in, late breakfast and shower. Or perhaps before leaving the site at end of holiday you might like to go to loo before your long journey. There are two separate blocks each for ladies and gents. Close them in turn! Its not rocket science. Everywhere else can manage it. This could be such a lovely friendly site but something needs to change and treating people in their 60s as if we were a group of rowdy drunken teenagers really doesn't make for happy holidays!

Useful dog walk - turn right out of site and right again into six acre farm.

This review is for Lynton

Useful dog walk - turn right out of site and right again into six acre farm. Goes right down to Lee Bay. HSM's were friendly enough but we found they could be a bit aggressive when dealing with misdemeanors, and may benefit from some people skills training. Noticed a Sainsbury's delivery van come onto site, but Costcutter and Londis in Lynton had a reasonable stock.

A warm and friendly reception awaits from managers Kevin & Alyson and the team at this little gem. A wonderful site with excellent facilities that are kept beautifully clean and tidy. There are so many footpaths directly from the site for a great days hiking in this coastal area of Exmoor. Make sure you enjoy a trip back up to Lynton from Lynmouth on the Victorian cliff railway. Cream tea in the cafe at Watersmeet is not to be missed.
