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.

Field for childrens play area, quiet, large enough to stay away from other campers if you want to. Staff were friendly, facilities clean- great addition to have sinks in their own cubicle.
A moderate 45 min walk to Lea Abbey / beach which is a great country walk and a 10min drive (if that) from Lynmouth.
NB: I got a tick folding away the tent, which seemed surprising since the grounds were so well maintained.
