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.

Local of site is pleasant.Can at times be windy as site is situated high up from the town of Lynton.
There are only 3 showers each, for male and female users.
Given the number of potential users, this in my view is very limited.
Additional the female shower/toilet block takes no account of individuals who are short in stature
my wife being 4foot 10 inches fond reaching the door pegs a struggle.
The Town of Lynton is small but has a lot of eating places and is very pleasant to walk round. A visit to the craft centre is well worth the effort.

We enjoyed a day on Woolacombe Beach which wasn't far away. We also enjoyed a lovely day in lynton and Lynmouth having an ice cream and going on the train. Everywhere was very reasonably priced, as was the site shop.
The site itself was kept well and was very clean and tidy. We were able to pitch easily, I was quite windy but it is to be expected so close to the cost and on a hill. It was lovely to see the sun set on an evening.

Having always stayed on a certified site with hardly any or no neighbours I was somewhat dreading a larger site. I should not have worried not only was it located right in the countryside but it was so peaceful and very friendly. I had to satisfy the requirements of 4 teenage girls i.e. not to far from the coast and for me peace and quiet at night. Tick the box for all. Everyone was so friendly I will definitely consider returning. It really was a five star site.
