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.

Booked in for 3 nights with the intention of possibly extending our stay for a few more nights depending on the weather, although the site was well kept and in a lovely location it is let down by the very dated and dark shower/toilet block not helped by the fact that the lights only come on in the evening even the lights that contain the shaving sockets over the hand basins do not work during the day time.

Staff were excellent. I was on my own and the assistant warden immediately helped me position my motorhome on blocks Great views, great walks all close by. Only downside is the shower and toilets which are in need of modernisation and refurbishment. Showers are hot and clean but block has no heating and is well below the standard I have come to expect from other sites visited. However I would certainly visit again.

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
to go to lynmouth which was very pretty .

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!
