Lynmouth, Devon

Two villages on the coast, one above the other, Lynton and Lynmouth where known by the Victorians as Little Switzerland. Lynton is an attractive village with a museum and good range of restaurants, cafes, tea shops and 'art/craft' shops. There are many hotels and guest houses in Lynton and Lynmouth. The town hall is very grand and is home to the Visitor Centre as well as films, drama and exhibitions. 600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway which is well worth a ride. Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall. There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms, West along the coast path to the Valley of Rocks with its wonderful scenery and flock of wild goats or round Hollerday Hill overlooking Lynton
