Lots to do in the local area. Great for walkers. Close to the sea. Challenging terrain for cyclists.
Children and dogs welcome.

walking
Whether you are an experienced walker or someone who prefers a short stroll, Exmoor National Park is the ideal place to explore the outdoors on foot. With over 1000km of footpaths and bridleways, through woodlands, by tumbling rivers and on open heather covered moorland, the variety is vast.

The South West Coast Path is only a short walk away.

cycling
Cycling for all abilities is catered for - whether you're a lycra-clad speed freak, keen to follow in the tyre marks of the Tour of Britain road race, a mountain biker seeking the challenge of the stunning network of bridleways and lanes, or even looking to take in the landscape and atmosphere at a more relaxed pace, the local area has something for you.

The 'Tarka Trail' is a few miles drive away.

riding
The quiet and open network of bridleways and lanes offer some of the best riding in the UK, including some sections of coastal bridleway, along with our beautiful open heather moorland and steeply wooded valleys.

There are two riding centres within walking distance.

train
A visit to this area is not complete without a ride on the famous Lynton & Lynmouth water-powered funicular Cliff Railway.

Woody Bay Station - The narrow guage steam railway is only just over a mile away and is an ideal place to take a journey back in time.

surfing
Whilst not being recognised as a classic surfing venue, Lynmouth Bay is, under the right conditions, one of the best left-hand surf spots in the UK.

The famous surfing beach at Croyde is just 20 miles away.

fishing
Permit fishing is available on the East Lyn, the Barle and the Exe along with a number of pools and reservoirs. Wimbleball Lake, near Dulverton has an excellent well stocked trout fishery and has a wheelyboat that can be pre-booked and used by disabled anglers.
