This review is for Lynton

Relaxed, peaceful location. lovely views of the sea. Stunning walks from the site. Lots to see and do locally, West Somerset Railway, Lynton and Barnstable Railway, Lynton Cliff Railway all within easy reach of the site. Facility Block very clean but in need of refurbishment. Disabled facilities limited and no baby changing facility. Perhaps the club should consider a family room extension to the block.

This review is for Lynton

We had a fantastic stay - very warm welcome and flexibility on departure time with lots of offers of advice on where to go, where to walk etc. This is a fantastic location for walkers and cyclists (so long as you're good with hills). Lynton, Valley of Rocks and Woody Bay all easily walkable. Facilities were always clean and to the delight of my two teenage daughters there was never a problem with hot water for showers! Pitches mostly slope so will need to level up and the hilltop position means you will need to peg down awnings securely as it can get a bit blustery. Narrow lane on approach to site has passing areas and is the only slight difficulty you may have getting to the site as You are only a couple of turns off the A39 - the site, even as it got busier over the bank holiday weekend, never felt crowded - overall a great location and great hospitality made for a cracking week
