The Lynhurst - Lynton, Lynmouth, Devon, Exmoor, England - Sleeps 22

The Lynhurst

The Lynhurst sleeps up to twenty two guests and is a large elegant country house that dates back to the late Victorian era. Affording immense character with accommodation arranged over four floors, The Lynhurst is ideal for big groups of friends of families who are looking to get away together. Formerly built in 1890 as a summer holiday retreat for a wealthy London banker and his family, the house is totally concealed in nearly three acres of grounds with lovely gardens and natural woodland; yet it is no distance at all from Lynton and Lynmouth on the Devon coastline.

Perched in an elevated position some four hundred feet above Lynmouth over looking Exmoor National Park, The Lynhurst exudes wide open space and tranquillity. Enjoy the large garden with barbeque area and relax on the terrace or in the beautiful conservatory both taking in the panoramic sea views.

It is a perfect retreat for those looking to relax in a peaceful setting and whilst it is secluded and nicely tucked away, it is just a short walk from the many local attractions including the Valley of the Rocks' where wild goats roam freely; the majestic waterfalls of Watersmeet and the famous Cliff Railway (dog-friendly!) which links up the picturesque harbour of Lynmouth with Lynton.
