Things to do

When you come to the postcard-perfect Lynmouth, you could be excused for thinking you’d spend much of your time staring at the gorgeous vista. You completely can, and we definitely do, but with a world-famous cliff railway, a National Park, great food and drink, stunning coastal walks and visitor attractions right on your doorstep, you’re probably going to have to find time for both!

The National Park

If you’re looking to explore the local area then the near 700 km² of Exmoor National Park will simply be heavily featured in your bucket list.

The Coast Path

There’s no better way to enjoy the stunning coastline that surrounds us than pounding the South West Coast Path – see how far you can get!


There a number of local shops to supply you with essentials, hand-made and gifts. If you need something specific, please ask reception.

Dining & Drinking

We don’t think you need to look much further than the Ancient Mariner and our hotel restaurant, but if you do, there are plenty of great options.


The best known in the local area is the world-famous Cliff Railway, but let that be the first on a long list of great days out on Exmoor.
