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

we are both 69 years old and arrived at this site at 3.00 pm , at 9,45 am the next morning 18 hours later we were approached by the warden telling us that someone had complained that our 2 yorkies had not been on their leads in the morning and pooping around our caravan areas. NOT TRUE, we have been on plenty of ccc sites to know the rules so when i explained they were telling lies the warden did say they have complained to the ccc about this problem before as i don,t think they like dogs on the sites so do not take it to serious , my wife is so upset she said we should not renew our membership again and not only that it did spoil our 5 week touring holiday and i felt the same way but why should we let these sort of people spoil it for us ,so we are now considering if we are going to renew our membership again as we do not want to be put into this situation again and believe me it is very upsetting , we did think if the warden had waited or watched the situation he could have acted upon rather than take the complainants side straight away

This review is for Lynton

We visited the site for the first time this weekend and would certainly visit again. As another reviewer has commented, it has the 'feel' of the smaller certified sites - very tranquil and relaxing. The site team were the friendliest and 'jolliest' I have met, and did everything possible to make us feel welcome. Yes, the facilities could do with some investment from the C&C, but they were spotlessly clean & well maintained. The shower I used was hot and powerful, and there was never a queue. This is an area for walkers and lovers of the 'out-doors' and there is plenty to do and see nearby. The 'short cut' to Lynton from the site is very steep and a challenge to the knees either way! But the walk via Lee Abbey & the Valley of the Rocks is lovely - and a bus can be caught back to the site. All in all, would thoroughly recommend - and thank you to 'the team' for all your hard work!

I think her name is Nat, if you are reading this, me and my wife want to thank you for your welcome, information and the peas and potatoes you gave us for our dinner! You made us feel so welcome after such a long journey. You really need to know that you made a difference on our holiday with your easy attitude, friendly approach and care. We haven't experienced that anywhere we have been. The site is immaculate and only a mile a bit into Lynton, an old village where time stood still. Nice walks from site, and if you get tired get the bus back. Do not take Minehead way if you are towing, Porlock Hill is tough. I recommend this site and will be back. PS -the toilets need updating, but it is obvious that managers have been trying to make it look better by painting.

This review is for Lynton

Site staff were very helpful, especially when we arrived late due to traffic. Only thing that spoiled it a little bit for us was that I left my rubber mallet and a borrowed tent peg extractor outside, by mistake, over night and they disappeared come the morning :-( Lesson here for me is to be more careful with my stuff. Even though the mallet and peg extractor were cheap to buy. It made us more security aware, and made me feel like not leave things in the tent when we go out.
