Lynmouth Holiday Retreat: Pitching field

General

  • Peaceful Lynmouth site with views over the Bristol Channel
  • In Exmoor National Park, 30 minutes' drive to Ilfracombe and Minehead
  • Food shop and wifi on site; five minutes' drive to Lynmouth harbour

In need of a Devon des res with smashing views? Lynmouth Holiday Retreat is a quiet site in the hills above Lynton and Lynmouth in the Exmoor National Park. As it's got direct access to the A39, it's a top contender if you're looking for a base to explore the Devon and Somerset coast.

Needless to say, there's plenty of stunning scenery around here: keep your eyes peeled for resident wildlife like wild ponies, red deer and birds of prey. The surrounding countryside is also full of trails for rural rambles, including the long-distance South West Coast Path. Dogs are welcome at the site and direct access to footpaths makes it a breeze to keep Fido fit and healthy.

Lynmouth Holiday Retreat has plenty of practical benefits too: facilities include a food shop, wifi, a washing-up area and a launderette to keep your gear spick and span.

If you find yourself getting peckish, feel free to set up a barbecue, order a takeaway or head down into Lynton (five minutes away) to stock up at the supermarket. You'll likely want to linger here for a stroll around its picture-worthy cottages, fishing boats and genteel Victorian buildings. Alternatively, forage for your own supper by taking the kids crabbing down at Lynmouth harbour (five minutes' drive).

Excellent clean facilities, stunning views and a pub next door08/06/2022

    This was a return visit for us, which says much. The site is reasonable size, with excellent clean facilities. There is a dishwasher, freezer (for your cold packs) and launderette to make life easier.

    A (little bit challenging) footpath leads to Lynmouth, where you will find some excellent pubs, cream teas etc. If you choose to drive (easier) Lynton & Lynmouth are only a short drive away.

    Our grass campervan pitch was large, with a stunning view over Lynmouth and plenty of room for our awning. Beggars Roost (a pub adjacent to, but not part of, the site) serves some excellent ales and basic pub food. The convenience store at reception stocks useful essentials (Milk, sausages etc)

    Disliked: 

    Being in hilly terrain, most of the site's grass pitches have a slight slope, requiring the use of levelling ramps. Not a major issue tbh, but one to be aware of when planning your stay.

Local attractions

Guests here have plenty of attractions and activities on their doorstep in and around Lynton and Lynmouth (five minutes' drive). For a novel way to travel between the two, try the funicular cliff railway that connects the twin towns. In the surrounding countryside, you can marvel at the geological formations of the Valley of the Rocks (10 minutes) or head out to the forest around Watersmeet (15 minutes) for waterfalls and an elegant Victorian tea room.

Many head to this part of the country in search of outdoor pursuits, so sporty types may well be pleased to learn that Lynmouth Holiday Retreat is close to a stables (10 minutes), fishing lake (20 minutes) and golf club (40 minutes). To really get that blood pumping, hike some or all of the 14 miles along the coast to Combe Martin, a hilly stretch of the South West Coast Path that includes this trail's highest point.

You may, of course, prefer a day lounging on the beach (and with beaches like these, who can blame you?). Top seaside towns nearby include Minehead, with its rockpools, and Ilfracombe with its castle and aquarium (both half an hour away).

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (23.2 miles)
  • National Waterfront Museum (27.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Watersmeet (1.3 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (4.3 miles)
