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.

This review is for Lynton

I don't know what Brian (a previous review) was looking for - but it obviously wasn't a camp site!! The site managers were very friendly, they kept the place in very good order and, with the exception of the occasional arachnid, clean. Yes the toilet blocks are antiquated but that was more than compensated by a plenitude of hot water and powerful shower. The stall are small - so I dried off outside the cubicle. No probs!! The walking is superb and there are plenty of pubs, cafes, etc to feed the inner man (or woman for that matter). Many thanks guys. I will most certainly be back.

This review is for Lynton

This is a site in a great position, good for walks, near to the coast and Lynmouth/Lynton in particular. Some facilities for children, but a bit limited - the best one seemed to be a big field set aside for children to lark about in ! The on-site staff were very helpful and pleasant, and well informed about the area, and were very welcoming, However, there is a big minus for the site, and that is the shower/loo/washing facilities. They really are a throwback to the days when you were lucky to have hot water and a loo ! Only one block, in a very battered condition externally, and internally much the same - although the staff keep it well (white) painted, and do the best they can, under the circumstances ! Shower and loo cubicles are ridiculously cramped for the 80's, let alone the 21st century ....... and the disabled ones are worse, likely to make you worse ! The whole area gets wet, so wear flipflops and an extra towel, and you're asked to mop the floor after use due to swamping.. And, at the end of Sept, 20 units on site, only two loos & showers for men, three for women, due to a pump failure - for at least four days I know of, and closed 10.30-12 anyway. Just awful, this site needs money spending on it dreadfully, it really is not up to scratch for what we pay. I feel sorry for the staff, as well as campers, both deserve a better deal, frankly. I really hope this review is posted, as it tells it as it is....... a sadly undersourced site. I have no pleasure in penning this review, but hope it may help spur on some action from the club - and I'm not alone,every review criticises the same problem - please, please listen to us and sort it out.

This is a very nice, clean, quiet and fairly isolated site in a lovely area.

This review is for Lynton

This is a very nice, clean, quiet and fairly isolated site in a lovely area. The toilet/shower block is the most outdated I have seen on a Club Site, but is functional with plenty of hot water. Shame that only half the block was open which caused some unecessary 'congestion' in the female side. Nice walks (steeply) down to Lynton, Valley of the Rocks and the lovely Lee Bay.

This site is very much as described in other reviews.

This review is for Lynton

This site is very much as described in other reviews. Namely, that the facilities could benefit from an update, but are kept in good clean condition. Although there are two toilet / shower blocks for men and women, all appear to be closed at the same time for cleaning. It would be better to stagger the cleaning times. Secondly, there are only three sinks for washing up in a small room. If it is raining, queuing outside for a sink is not much fun ! Other than that, a good site.
