“An idyllic Location”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We headed to Lynton/Lynmouth in the hope of finding a campsite with a spare pitch. We found this site, just outside the town and luckily they had one pitch left. It is only a small site, but the location is beautiful, right next to the river Lyn. The owners are friendly and very helpful. It's only a 10 minute walk across the road to the pubs in Lynton. We would have stayed longer but all the pitches were booked. We will definately be going back, but you will certainly have to book up through the summer months. The breakfast menu looks fantastic! The combination of the noise from the river and the local cider, ensures a pleasant nights sleep!

Camped for a week in May. Owners are very welcoming and the site clean. Although the facilities are getting a bit old they are clean and well maintained. The weather was wet on and off with some very heavy showers but the site is well drained so we didn't end up being boggy underfoot.

The campsite cafe is very clean and does a lovely full English!

My only gripe is that the showers are very small, the lights in the gents showers didn't work after 9PM, and when the site is busy the hot water runs out in the morning.

We spent a couple of nights here as a base for walking the South West Coast Path from Minehead to Coombe Martin. We called en route and had a pitch reserved with a traffic cone and our name on, so pitching was easy even though we arrived late. The facilities were spotless, showers hot at all hours, toilets clean and a nice touch to have a scourer and bottle of washing up liquid to use at sink (which again had piping hot water). The shop was basic but the manager really helpful, even opening the shop one afternoon when I needed some rolls. A small site set right alongside a river, a somewhat cold dip but it was April. Perfect great value site for all.

We stayed in a caravan - last min decision as we were going to pitch up. The caravan was clean and a bit retro...we loved it. Would of happily pitched up too, fab setting right by the river.
The cafe on site for breakfast was fab and tasty 5 star hygiene
Pub next door was great too. Bearing in mind we had a toddler and a boxer, we were most welcome. Left ours mobile behind and they posted it back, no probs!
Will defo come back!

This is the best lodge in Exmoor which overlooks the river high up in the trees between lynton and lynmouth. beautiful clean - we will return.
The area has national Trust properties, moorland, walking, beautiful bays and wonderful tea shops.
porlock, dunster, and so on.

Room Tip: Any one of the lodges is beautiful - but order bedlinen also clean and fresh saves such a lot of bot...
