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.

If you're a walker splash out on one of the walking maps to make sure you take the best walks to see the stunning scenery.
Dog owners are able to take their dogs into pubs in Lynmouth. To go on the railway between Lynton and lynmouth is a must. Also Glen Lyn gorge worth visiting. Watersmeet is a lovely walk with the national trust shop at the end I can recommend the carrot cake!! Valley of the rocks is beautiful and I'm sure we saw porpoises in the bay.
We also enjoyed hiring bikes and cycling along the tarka trail but worth reserving bikes first especially if you have a particular requirement

This review is for Lynton
We had a short break as we live 50 minutes drive away but wanted to do a section of the South West coast path early on the Saturday morning. The site is lovely, we found it really peaceful, our dogs loved it and we had a fantastic walk from the site to Martinhoe Common; Woody Bay; Lee Bay; passing Lee Abbey the through Valley of Rocks to Lynton then back to the site up a very steep hill! Would highly recommend for a peaceful break in the country side but walking distance from Lynton - if you don't mind a big hill! Site staff very friendly and facilities clean and tidy.

upon arrival i was greeted by Alyson who was very friendly and her knowledge of the area was again excellent. kevin showed me to my pitch again very friendly. both Alyson and Kevin's local knowledge was excellent. the site was clean and tidy the grass cut well. my only gripe is the toilet and shower facilities as these were outdated however they were extremely clean. The lift between Lynton and Lynmouth is well worth a go and try out the fish and chips along the esplanade (don't forget the ice cream). a little drive away is the beautiful Hunters Inn (amazing Cream Teas) with nice walk down to Heddon. We went to Glen Lyn Gorge absolutely gorgeous but it doesn't come cheap. the beaches nearby are all rock you need to travel to woolacombe bay or saunton sands which are about 40 minute drive but definitely worth the drive (have change for the carparks as they need to be paid cash only).
