About Watersmeet

This is a delightful fishing lodge from 1823 located at the picturesque spot in the East Lyn Valley where the waters of the River Lyn and the Hoare Oak Water meet.

When the property came into the hands of the National Trust they refurbished it to provide a pleasant tea room for visitors. This is now one of England's longest established tea-gardens, it occupies a spectacular setting in a deep gorge, fanning out from here are miles of stunning walks amongst woodlands, streams and the rich Devonshire coastline.
