Countisbury Lodge is a newly renovated guest house with parking, and amazing views over the Lyn valley, high above Lynmouth, but only a short walk to the amenities.
This is an excellent place to explore Exmoor National Park, and to walk the North Devon and Somerset coast path. There is also an apartment with sea views and a double bedroom & ensuite, and a lounge with kitchenette.
Lynmouth is an unspoilt village situated on the north coast of Devon, within the Exmoor National Park noted for it's natural beauty and unspoilt landscape. This is the perfect place to go up onto the moor and catch glimpses of the red deer and the wild Exmoor ponies, and explore Devon and north Somerset, either by car or walking.
The Victorians named the area 'Little Switzerland' which is an excellent description of the terrain. Lynmouth and Lynton are linked by the unique water powered Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, another place to admire the beautiful views. Leaving the shops, tearooms and cafes of Lynton behind, you will find the Valley of Rocks, home of buzzards and the wild but docile goats, which is an easy walk. There is a good selection of eating places and pubs in the local area.
Exmoor Zoo is a great place to visit with keepers on hand to answer questions, and on the way you pass the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway. Watersmeet is an enjoyable walk along the valley from the guest house, and there are other National Trust properties in the area: Arlington Court, Knightshayes and also good walking around Hunterís Inn. The towns of Barnstaple, Minehead and South Molton with their local markets are a 30 minute drive away.
