British Cycling

We’re delighted to have had British Cycling’s medal-winning Olympic hopeful Ellie Dickinson, along with GB Para-cycling coach Andrew Pink staying with us.

Here they are, alongside Teresa, before setting out on an inevitably lumpy training ride.

We wish them every success for the future.

Lynton & Lynmouth BIG WEEKEND

We still have some accommodation available if you are looking for somewhere to stay that is convenient for both locations.

Dean Steep is situated less than 5 minutes drive from the Start/Finish line. We will be opening up 2 night bookings for this weekend if you are looking for somewhere to stay.

Last year we were pleased to accommodate the organizers along with several competitors, including some from as far afield as Belgium and the USA.

Winter Ridge Trailer

Filmed on location in Lynton and Lynmouth we are happy to have played a minor role (providing accommodation for most of the crew) in this award winning production. There are several glimpses of the fantastic scenery which this area has to offer. (Apologies for the expletive at 36 seconds!)

It is hoped that the film will be on general release in the UK before too long.

Lynmouth Raft Race

The Raft Race returns to Lynmouth on 11th Aug 2018, starting at 4:30pm for a couple of hours. Come and join in the fun. Watch the rafts parade through Lynmouth before they are launched into the harbour for the start under the bridge and the race out to a buoy. You can help them on their way by buying flour bombs and pelting them from the bridge and harbour wall. It’s a good laugh and a great way to raise money for charity.

Lynton & Barnstaple Railway

Spring Gala – May 12 & 13

The railway is holding its annual Spring Gala on the above dates. Most of the engines will be in operation with unlimited rides. There will be a marquee with various additional attractions along with a model railway, craft stalls, BBQ  as well as a beer tent with real ales.

We are only just over a mile down the road and you could even walk the scenic route across our field then down the back lanes and a footpath (slightly further) if you wanted to leave the car and make a day of it.

We still have our 2 night breaks available if you are looking for somewhere to stay.

Winter Ridge – Film premiere

Winter Ridge is opening the London Independent Film Festival 2018. The première is being shown in London on April 13th at 9pm.

It is hard to believe that it is only 12 months since we were having discussions about providing accommodation for the majority of the crew.

We are looking forward to seeing the film at Lynton’s own private screening. Let’s hope the press like it and that it is picked up by a major distributor.

We still have places available for Easter, if you want to come and see where the film was made.
