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 think this is a lovely site well positioned for walking, it also has spectacular views. The staff are brilliant and very helpful. Access a bit narrow but not a big issue. Very quiet site with only the accasional passing tractor to interrupt the bird song will be back.

Very helpful warden. Facilities very clean but need upgrading. In view of site's isolation, a better stocked shop and longer opening hours would be welcome.
Lots of excellent walks nearby and very quiet and peaceful.
Rather exposed if wild windy weather so be prepared to take down any awning!

Great part of the country, fairly steep walk into the town. Or take the longer coastal walk.

We wanted quiet and small. The site was lovely and staff helpful. The walk down to Lynton (1 mile) was steep so we didn't attempt to walk back but took the bus from Lynmouth after a day's walking. We had sea views, and the warden parked us where we could watch the sun go down over the sea. Very quiet and good space between units. Shower/washing block a little old fashioned but very clean. Site suitable for all. It has a small shop onsite, and is a great spot for touring the area.
