The surrounding area

Glen Lyn Gorge south of Lynton offers a mix of waterfalls and pools plus a water power exhibition.

This review is for Lynton

Fantastic site, great staff very helpful, good atmosphere, we originally booked for 4 but stayed 2 extra, great walks from site some hard going. Gorgeous sunset. Shower block and facilities spotless but can do with upgrade, and maybe a family bathroom . Also note the field used for the dog exercise has been removed but there is a very quiet Lane you can walk or take one of the many walks in the area. Thank you to the staff for all thier help.

Small site with poor but clean facilities.

This review is for Lynton

Small site with poor but clean facilities. Reviews of 2011 comment about the poor shower and toilet facilities but still these have not been updated despite the high charges made. Perhaps management need to comment? Be aware of very steep walking paths and roads which may restrict the enjoyment of visiting Linton and Lynmouth. Targa trail is not close by despite club claims. It would be useful if information in the overview is more accurate and honest (eg give distance from site).
