Lynton, Lynmouth and Exmoor
The St Vincent Hotel is situated in Lynton, which overlooks a charming stretch of the Devon coast where the River Lyn meets the sea at Lynmouth harbour. This is an area of the beautiful Exmoor National Park known as “Little Switzerland”. Nearby is the rugged, but equally inspiring and unique landscape of the Valley of Rocks. Lynton and Lynmouth are connected by a water-powered cliff railway built by the Victorians, only a short stroll from the hotel.
Exmoor and North Devon is the perfect area for a walking or cycling holiday. The coastal path runs through Lynton and Lynmouth enabling you to plan your days out, starting with a great breakfast and ending with a fantastic meal at the St. Vincent, we can even pack you a lunch if you require it.
Exmoor is stunning throughout the year. Trips to Watersmeet and the Doone Valley are essential parts of any visit.
The area is also famed for the arts and culture – there is a famous music festival locally – and simply being a great place to eat, drink and relax.
Jean-Paul and Linda have lots of ideas and maps for local trails and are always happy to assist you whether you fancy an all-day route march or just a simple stroll to a local pub or tea-shop.
