These quite unique towns – Lynmouth on the harbour at the bottom of the cliff and Lynton overlooking at the top – are set in a stunning coastal location on the edge of Exmoor. Linked by the historic Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway, the towns attract a steady stream of visitors all year round. Lynton and Lynmouth and the wider rural area also have a settled, self-reliant, living and working community that supports the development and growth of the local economy and makes use of the local shops, cafes, services and restaurants. Road and bus services connect Lynton and Lynmouth to nearby Porlock (12 miles), Combe Martin (13 miles), Ilfracombe (19 miles) and Barnstaple (18 miles).

There are a host of facilities and amenities, a level walk, within the immediate vicinity including restaurants, bars, tea rooms, shops, Pharmacy and Post Office with the premises also being close to the Tourist Information Office and the famous funicular railway. The Valley of Rocks, South West Coast Path, Exmoor and North Devon coast are nearby, offering spectacular scenery and beautiful walks, with the property itself having views towards Countisbury Hill and Summerhouse Hill.
