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.
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.

Sunday 4th June 2017. The British Cycling registered sportive, organised by Bike Shed in Barnstaple, takes in some of the most fabulous scenery North Devon has to offer.
