Property code: OC-LYNCHA

Full of charm, this property is a perfect base for families looking to explore the North Devon coast in style with wonderful views out over Lynmouth Bay. A must-visit whilst staying in the area is a trip on the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Traversing between the villages powered by water, it offers a completely unique experience loved by those of all ages.

The living room can be found on the first floor with dramatic exposed beams adding character to the space whilst two leather sofas and a TV ensure you can fully relax. Head downstairs to the ground floor to find the remainder of the rooms, including the light, bright, open-plan kitchen/diner which is a perfect size for four and has a tasteful country style. The first of the bedrooms is a beautiful king-sized bed which boasts a balcony overlooking the sea and an en-suite shower room for added luxury. Bedroom two is very versatile, furnished with zip-and-link twin beds which can be made into a king-size upon request and decorated with a tasteful nautical theme in a nod to the property’s location. Completing the property is a stylish shower room.

The walking trails from Lynton are held in high regard, with the option to walk along the South West Coast Path towards Ilfracombe. You’ll also have trails of varying difficulty in Exmoor National Park, which is bursting with beauty. To see the coast from a unique viewpoint, book a sea safari or sunset boat trip from Ilfracombe Harbour (19 miles) – it’ll be an experience you’ll never forget. Spend a day at one of North Devon’s finest sandy beaches with Woolacombe (21 miles) providing opportunities to swim, surf and saunter through the dunes at all times of the year.

Penthouse Channel View was the perfect place for our short break in Lynton. The location is excellent just off the centre of Lynton and in a very quiet spot with superb views over Lynmouth, along the coast to Foreland Point and across the channel to South Wales. The apartment is on the second floor of a large building - probably a former hotel - coRead morenverted into several apartments, and is accessed by stairs and a lift. The lift proved a godsend for transporting our luggage on arrival and departure. The apartment has been well maintained, is comfortable and has every convenience you need for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped with the usual appliances and, to our delight, a Nespresso coffee machine and Aeroccino Milk Frother! Our stay at the end of November 2023 coincided with a cold spell but the electric wall mounted heaters kept us comfortably warm. We also had plenty of hot water for showers etc. There is ample parking in front of the building in marked out bays. The walk into the centre of Lynton takes about 5 minutes up a fairly steep incline. The walk down the zig zag path into Lynmouth takes about 10/15 minutes if you dont stop to admire the wonderful views on the way down. Or you can take the bus or the cliff railway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lynton and in Penthouse Channel View. Its definitely somewhere we could recommend to friends for a nice quiet, peaceful stay in lovely surroundings but close enough to shops, restaurants etc that you didnt need your car for everything.
