Exmoor NP

Exmoor National Park is a beautiful place in the south of the UK. The National Park is a great place for hikers, has a magnificent coastline and cosy fisher towns. I stayed at the Sunny Lyn Holiday Park, a small camping  site next to the West Lyn river. From here it’s not to far from Lynton and Lynmouth.

⊗ Lynmouth and Lynton

Lynmouth lays bellow Lynton. The two towns are connected by a cliff railway, but you can also walk or drive. In 1952 there was a flood in Lynmouth, over 100 buildings were destroyed, about 30 people died. Now the pretty town is rebuild. In Lynton I had dinner at the Crown Lynton, you can walk here from the camping site (via Lynway). Dishes with fish, such as Cod and Chips are typical to eat. I took the daily special, a cottage pie. There is also a cosy pub near the camping site further up the road.

⊗ Hiking from Lynmouth towards Lee Abbey Devon

You can follow part of the South-West Coast path from Lynton or Lynmouth towards Lee Abbey Devon, passing the ‘Valley of Rocks’.

Near Lee Abbey you can have an afternoon tea with some delicious scones.
