This review is for Lynton

Around a 25 minute walk to Lynton, the walk is pleasant but you're faced with a step decline/incline. Very peaceful place. We stayed a couple of nights and was thoroughly refreshed. Although there is a park, probably not the best place for young children. Facilities are ageing but kept exceptionally clean by the team. Grounds are immaculate and small supplies shop good. Definitely would stay again.

We are backpackers from Holland, cycling across England. We arrived late in the evening.

This review is for Lynton

We are backpackers from Holland, cycling across England. We arrived late in the evening. This area is very hilly and can be very misty and the weather changes all the time. We are tired when we arrived. The lady from Portugal, sorry we don't remember your name, was very kind to us as she recognized that we were exhausted and soon put us in a pitch so we can rest. We stayed for 3 nights. We had no cash and wanted to get the bus to town so she lent us money for the bus. We want to thank this lady rare to find people who help for nothing.

We are new to the club.

This review is for Lynton

We are new to the club. It's hard to get used to only being allowed access on to a site after 1 PM. The Lynton staff were helpful on our arrival . Toilets and showers were clean enough but in need of modernisation. Also three shower cubicles for men and three for ladies seemed inadequate. Perhaps the shop could have had a little more stock available. Overall quite a good site in a lovely area.
