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 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 The toilet/shower block is the most outdated I have seen on a Club Site, but is functional with plenty of hot water.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.

Not the warmest of greetings when we arrived as it appeared as if the office was closed.

This review is for Lynton

Not the warmest of greetings when we arrived as it appeared as if the office was closed. However the site is ideally located approximately two miles from Lynton which in my opinion can be the only reason for its popularity. If you have ever wondered how a typical 50s campsite may have looked then I thoroughly recommend a stay here. Unmade roads with pot holes within the site, very grim toilet blocks with filthy floors, no private washing facilities, all decorated in drab green paint. I would love to know where all the membership fees and sky high site fees are invested, certainly not at this campsite!

This review is for Lynton

Lynton one mile up the lane (a beautiful but steep walk), well worth it as Lynton itself is lovely, lyn candles is a good visit if you like great smelling and pretty candles, Charlie Fridays is a great little place to eat with friendly staff and delicious cream teas (dog and child friendly), a short walk down takes you into Lynmouth where you can visit Glen Lyn Gorge ( well worth the visit), and you can take the Lynton and Lynmouth water railway back up to the top. Our experience on our visit to the campsite and local attractions was a wonderful one and would recommend the site to anyone, we will certainly be visiting again. The views from the campsite and into Lynton are just breathtaking.
