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.

we arrived first day of opening,they were
welcoming. Quiet site very steep to Lynton
town,not recommended for the older person
especially if on foot. The shower block is ok
but needs heating and definitely updating!
On a good day the scenery is lovely managed

A lovely well kept site with a high standard of cleanliness.
A good walk through the woods and coastal path to Lynton but a tough walk back. Easier to catch a bus!

We did read that the amenities were old but considering this they were very clean and first class. It's obvious that a lot of work has gone into keeping this site to such a high standard. Very quiet and dark at night a shame that the damage caused by badgers has caused the closure of the upper field. I was amazed at the amount of damage caused by these animals. We did look at camping towards the top of the remaining field at the beginning of our stay but on departure we saw that all the pitches at that end of the remaining field had been decimated. It looked like it had been ploughed up! I wouldn't like one to get into our awning! Access lane to site is a bit narrow but OK.
