Six Tors Road is in the popular Devon location of Lynmouth, with space for up to eight people to sleep in four bedrooms. It's a sizeable end-terrace holiday rental beside the East Lyn River and within walking distance of the beach, cliff railway, cafes, shops and the Ancient Mariner pub. The owners have chosen a stylish mix of mid-century inspired furnishings and cleverly combined bright colours with natural shades that reflect the vibrant beauty of the natural surroundings. The layout is excellent for big families. Two bedrooms have zip and link beds, and there are three bathrooms, so it's also ideal for a self-catering stay with extended families and friends.
Although the village known fondly as "Little Switzerland" has been a popular place for a day trip since Victorian times, it's rare to find a riverside holiday cottage in Lynmouth, making this place even more special. You're just steps away from the path leading you beside the river towards the harbour shops and other amenities. Spend some time building sandcastles on the beach before walking a stretch of the South West Coast Path, visiting the Lyn and Exmoor Museum, or enjoying a ride on the water-powered funicular that has linked Lynmouth with Lynton since 1890. You can also follow the East Lyn River to National Trust Watersmeet or walk out to the Valley of the Rocks to see wild goats and breathtaking coastal views.
Staying in the Exmoor National Park gives you a wide variety of activities and attractions. Things to do include visiting Exmoor Zoo or Ilfracombe Aquarium, seeing the impressive gardens at Arlington Court, swimming, coasteering, mountain biking, walking, and horse riding. Treat the kids to a day at The Big Sheep, the Combe Martin Dinosaur and Wildlife Park, or The Milky Way Adventure Park, and book a sightseeing boat trip for a better view of the caves and coves used by smugglers. There are castles and ghost tours for those who like things spooky, and wildlife tours and sea safaris for guests who want to learn more about the huge variety of birds and animals that thrive under the protection of the national park.
